My wife was skeptical because of the small town diner appearance but the food was all great. Salads were fresh and GREEN. The burger was much better than average and the fries were fantastic. Unexpectedly good brand muffin, warm out of the oven and home-made tasting, not reheated pre-made. We will return the next time we are in town, or... More

After reading reviews, thought this would be a great place for breakfast. They weren't very busy but the service was very slow. Our waitress kept chatting with the other staff so we had to keep waiting for her to get done for our food or a refill or our bill....etc. Food a little less than average. The ham with my... More

Though the gluten-free choices of foods are a lot, the desserts at Berardi's are truly fantastic. Unfortunately, none of them were gluten-free on the day I was there. But they still have the best pies!

We were looking for a quick place to grab lunch with my daughter and a couple of her friends that work at Cedar Point. We just quickly decided on this place my daughter had been to once. We were extremely pleased. It is kind of a breakfast and lunch place. Different types of cuisine. Not an extremely extensive menu but... More

Although I haven't been to every restaurant in the town, this place was number one for me. The food, service, and price made this a great place to eat. They are famous for their french fries, so I had to get them. I tell you h'what, they were the best fries I have ever had the opportunity to eat. Also,... More

If you like fast, friendly service and good food look no further. I met friends for breakfast while in town and i cannot say anything negative. I would return.

Our family stopped in just before 4pm on a Thursday for dinner. New building renovations clean and inviting. We were seated right away and passed by the beautiful pie case on the way to our table. We made up our mind then we'd be having dessert. One of us had the shreaded beef in between bread slices with gravy. Excellent... More

Read reviews before going. Wife & I had Broccoli Salad, Meatball appetizer, potato soup/Mac & cheese combo and large fries. The restaurant started in the 40s after the founder started a fry stand in 1942. The interior is nice and surprisingly large. The menu is more extensive than what the Trip Advisor menu shows. Everything was just spot on. Not... More

We stopped in for breakfast before adventuring for the day and it was great! Lori was our waitress. She was sweet and smiled a lot. The food was delicious and if we are ever in the area, we will definitely return.
