We stopped there for a late breakfast. I ordered a G.I.Special. instead of my food being presented on a typical round plated, my meal was given on a rectangular mess tray! It doesn't get any more classic than this ! Great food and service.

The food here is ok. Maybe slightly above average. I had a cup of Lobster bisque and breaded tenderloin sandwich and my wife had a Reuben with a side of hand cut fries. The service was good too. Prices are a little on high side...but the portions are big. We eat here every now and then.More

We went with a group of six and a service dog on a Sunday morning. Not surprised to have to wait for a table, which we take as a sign that the food is good here. Due to COVID restrictions, we had to split our...group since the diner had to have empty booths between us and other diners; not a problem. Glad the restaurant is compliant. We all ordered breakfast - the traditional fare of omelets, eggs, sausage, hash browns. Everything was prepared perfectly. I really enjoyed the coffee and should have asked what brand it was. One particular nice touch was the server brought all the condiments - cups of ketchup, butter, jelly - on one plate for all of us. The only thing we had to ask for was coffee refills!More

The service was friendly, the food was tasty. The menu was basic diner food. The atmosphere was a bit unique and small.

My husband and I were looking for a little local breakfast place and decided to stop here. Service was good, food wS nothing fancy, just good breakfast favorites. I got an omelet that was massive! My husband got the French toast combo. Neither of us...could finish our plates. We especially enjoyed the fried potatoes...they were perfect (and my husband is pretty picky about his fried potatoes!!)More

We had 13 in our group. Restaurant was very accommodating to get us seated. Food was great. Manager even took a minute to explain the history of the diner to us. Our server was awesome.

My husband and I went to the restaurant twice, once for breakfast and once for lunch. Both amazing meals! Super cute, you don’t leave hungry and the staff is very friendly. This is a little gem that you don’t want to miss!

Delicious food! We had biscuits and gravy, an omelet, and pancakes with bacon amongst our table. Bonus: it’s situated next to a small airport and our 2 year old loved watching the airplanes take off and land.

Cute little diner attached the the Liberty Aviation Museum. It’s small so with COViD restrictions you may have to wait on a table. Super cutely decorated with the 50’s diner feel. Food was really good and reasonably priced. Had trouble finding it at first, we...didn’t realize it’s almost part of the museum from the looks of it.More

We love this restaurant and we’re so glad they’ve been able to reopen! It’s a true old-style diner, with traditional décor and fascinating views of the busy small-plane airport. The food is everything you’d expect from a diner, with many breakfast dishes served all day....Service is always terrific and the food is delicious and generous! Terry, our server for our latest visit, checked on us often, was attentive and helpful. Plan on extra time to explore the aviation museum and gift shop.More

The Boardwalk is awesome. Bit pricey but worth it.
