Great old fashioned diner. Service was fast and excellent. Nothing fancy just good basic food. Prices are really reasonable.

I had a burger and fries. The lettuce was iceberg, as was the salad. I'd like at least romaine, but it's a cute place

This really brings me back to yesterday or yesteryear. The design inside is typical 1950's or 60's design. Great open areas and the food is wonderful. Step back and enjoy the food.

Went here for breakfast. I'd say it's a good ol American diner. 50's memorabilia and locals hanging out. The place was packed. Highly recommend for a bite to eat

We are there just about every Saturday if we don't have to be somewhere else, We usually have to wait a little. Not very long but it is worth it. If you don't want breakfast they have good burgers and fish and home style meals and naturally desert ( locally made Ice Cream) among other things.

Nostalgia, terrific food and super friendly staff & service! Showed up 15 minutes before closing and they didn't even bat an eye and only offered great southern hospitality! And they didn't even mind us taking pictures clearly after their closing time (if they did, they didn't show it).

One of my favorite lunch places. I happen to love the flounder sandwich - it's better than one you'd get at a seafood place. It's fun to see the '50's decor and see which two perfectly restored antique cars they are displaying inside the restaurant this time. Popular with locals and there's usually a lot of friendly conversation between tables... More

My wife stopped here for lunch. The atmosphere was fun and the staff were very nice. They somehow lost our order so it took us about an hour to get our food. I had the Cuban and my wife had the Philly cheesesteak. The food was just average. We enjoyed our visit but I would definitely like to stop by... More

I loved the way the place looked inside and out so I was hoping the food would be great. I tasted my husbands fried clams and they were good and tender. However, my meal left a lot to be desired. My chicken fried chicken was so dry I could not eat all of it. The pinto beans were very good,... More
