This dinner was very conveniently located near the hotel we were staying, so we decided to give it a try. The restaurant was clean, the service was friendly and quick, the food quite good and prices were very reasonable. I tried the crabcake sandwich and enjoyed it very much. My companion tried the spicy chicken wrap and thought it was... More

I was on the road most of the day, finally stopped for dinner at 8 PM in the middle of the week. I ordered green salad with Buffalo Chicken on top. When asked about a dressing I said NONE, I don't use it. I received a very nice looking salad until I ate a piece of the chicken. Under the... More

About a block from hotel. Service with a smile but food was greasy and tasted kind of old. Delectable bakery case with all kinds of pastries. Waitresses were nice and place was clean,.

I had an egg white omelette and it was perfect. Didn't realize hash brown's (cooked to perfection) & toast came with the meal. Staff was friendly and service was great. Will refer family & friends

Server was very nice and attentive. The food left something to be desired. Dry Philly cheesesteak and tasteless waffle. Would have thought diner pie would be an option but on lemon to offer. No thanks. I believe it best that we avoid Easington when traveling as our choice of hotel and food, while close to the airport not a choice... More

Typical diner food. Soup was very good, and my sandwhich was good. The nicest thing was we were never pressured to eat and leave. It was not crowded but they were very nice about our long lunch.,I heard the desert was great here and they were right. My companion had to take half of the slice home, it was so... More

I had looked to see if the establishment had a website but all I could find were reviews on Yelp and a recommendation by the infamous Jim Cornette. I was quickly seated by Lori, who was very friendly. I ordered the Country Breakfast which is two eggs, bacon or sausage, hash browns, and biscuits and gravy. My only complaint is... More

We decided to eat here because we were stranded by Lufthansa and had to spend the night at the hotel next door. A rainstorm came up right at lunchtime so we ran about 20 feet across to the diner. I've always been a sucker for 1950s diner style restaurants anyway. The pastry counter was full of delicious looking desserts. The... More
