An amazing place! If you're visiting Presque Isle, it's worth the short drive for breakfast or lunch. Located in the small, quiet area of Lawrence Park, this is an original dining car. The owners are extremely friendly, the food is plentiful and fantastic! If you order the sampler be sure you're very hungry! The pancakes are the size of a... More

The appeal was the diner of course but the food and service was great. I had the Italian Wedding Soup, very delicious and of course had to have pie...Yum!

We were extremely excited to find a diner to sit down and have an old fashioned milkshake at. However this location seems to be in the heart of downtown Erie, Which is less than reputable for its safety. Aside from the sticky seeds the decor is actually a flashback to the fifties and the food isn't all that bad. So... More

Are you sure this review is for the correct place? The Lawrence Park Dinor is not located in downtown Erie. We are located in Lawrence Park which is a safe, family friendly community East of Erie in Lawrence Park Township. We pride ourselves in cleanliness and excellent customer service so your comments do not in any way describe our business.... More

While the place is on the small side, with limited seating, we went early in the morning before there could be a crowd on the weekend. The food is good, the staff is incredible and the prices are great. The charm is the reason to go though, everyone knows everyone and it makes for a really enjoyable eating experience.

Ordered the pancakes and they tasted terrible - maybe a weird cooking spray used or something? Spat them out in my napkin. Ok coffee and nice people. Others nearby ordered something with the famous Greek sauce (looked like a mince sauce) and seemed to be really enjoying it. Cool ambience.

Fantastic breakfast! I ordered two hotcakes; along with scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns, and biscuit. The serving portions were huge. I'm sorry to say, I could not eat all of my breakfast. Great breakfast and very friendly service. This dinor has a unique history. I recommend to check out this dinor, if in the Erie,PA area.

Yes, it's small. But the food is good. It's diner fare: breakfast, sandwiches, sides. The staff is friendly, the coffee is hot and the food is made to order. The Greek omelette is one of our favorites here.

I love dinors (yep, in PA, we spell it with an O!). This one in Lawrence Park is in a classic trailer with lunch counter overlooking the grill and a wall of booths by the windows. Traditional breakfast fare and soup & sandwich lunches. Once a bustling place servicing the local GE crowd, its managed to hang on well in... More
