We had breakfast, which is my favorite meal! The place is literally a small old fashioned trailer style diner. It's super small inside, so you may have to wait. On Sunday's they only serve breakfast.... That's when we went and that's what we wanted anyway, but some people left disappointed.... So please keep this in mind when planning your visit.... More

Me and my two boys stopped in to grab some breakfast. The food was excellent and very affordable. We did not walk away hungry. The service was top notch as well!!

Lawrence Park Dinor (yes, it really is spelled dinor) is a local classic serving breakfast and lunch. As an authentic dinor, food is cooked out front, not in a hidden kitchen. Specialties are Greek omelets and Greek fries. Homemade pie in a variety of flavors is a fine finish to a great meal!

Love this place! Food is always good, staff is always friendly. Best peanut butter pie ever! Enjoy watching the cook while sitting at the counter chatting with the passing servers. So efficient. The servers remember our favorite breakfast and kids love the giant cinnamon rolls. Prices are great considering we're a family of 7. In Erie often and whether with... More

A wonderful dinning experience and fully meet our expectations based on previous reviews. Food was very good and the service much more than friendly. This is a family run business and each person with whom we interacted was there to serve their guests, unusual in this era. We stopped there on a trip from NY to Iowa and liked it... More

This time we made it to the Lawrence Park Dinor for breakfast. Its about 20 minutes from the Glasshouse Inn, our home away from home where... More

I'm old enough to have ate a several authentic diners and this one only seems to have the structure appeal. Waitresses were not attentive, forgot out waters. When they did come dirty fingerprints were not appealing. I understand they are busy but waiting this long for a not well cooked breakfast and under toasted toast wasn't worth it. Milkshakes were...
