Stopped here today for lunch in between soccer matches. Waitress was great, service was quick. We got the wings and salad and the triple decker ham and cheese. The lemonade was tart and fresh.

A full parking lot at breakfast, lunch, and dinner hours are a big indicator of success. It's diner food served fast, sizable portions, really don't have to wait long despite the crowd (fast service and food makes this possible). Easy access off I-81.

We’ve never had a bad meal here. Breakfast is all day and is great. We’ve also eaten off the lunch and dinner menu and have gotten plenty of food for the price.

This is a nice dinner with tasty food. The wait staff is friendly and the prices are very reasonable. I'm in town for business and have visited this place a couple of times. A nice relaxing sit down place.

No idea- especially this one. I ride motorcycle and we love stopping at diners all over the country. This food is one of the worst in my opinion. We really have very few restaurants with good, fresh food here in Carlisle so... More
