I ordered the stuff french toast and bacon. They use the Challah bread which was good but it could have had more cream cheese stuffing.

We stopped for lunch. The menu was extensive. I got a burger, and hubby got the French dip. Both were well prepared and delicious.

Stopped in for breakfast in May 2022. The server was really nice and the food was great. Actually, the pancakes were really wonderful. The menu was large and varied. The hostess seemed to be a bit frustrated, but other than that it was a good...experience. I would definitely eat here again. The dessert case looked AMAZING and that was reason enough to go back!More

The food was good however the service was very average. Ownership seemed like she has been doing this a little too long. Would be nice if out hostess could smile. Would have made us feel welcome. She seemed almost frustrated with tourists. I am sue...some can be a pain but in this area they do pay the bills. We will be back and hope maybe for improvements.More

Broad menu…food seemed better pre Covid..have been back a couple of times over past several months and overall food was not as good as it had been previously.

Date of our visit was 03/27. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast here. I had three eggs over medium, sausage links, hash browns, toast and a side of scrapple and cream gravy. Wife had the classic Benedict with French toast. Everything was very good, except for...the scrapple. Varied menu has something for everyone. Service was very good. Recommend but we're not likely to return, however, as Hilton Head Island is pretty much a resort for wealthy folks.More

Yes yes and yes…. This is not your gourmet experience… this is American diner food and it’s great at what it does. Forget the clam chowder soup, it tastes a lot like microwaved Progresso… which is a pretty good chowder… just not restaurant quality. The...Chef Salad… YES YES! I call this a “meat salad” myself. If you like meat… this is your salad. I was surprised at the excellent lunch meat loaded atop this small monster. You could actually split this with a loved one. My only regret was the blue cheese dressing is too rich for so much meat… maybe an oil and vinegar is best. Check the reviews.. this is good stuff.More

Walked from our hotel to restaurant. We went a little earlier than usual. They weren’t very busy. I ordered the blackened chicken pita. It was really delicious and service was good.

My wife and I have tried out many restaurants over the past several weeks located on Hilton Head, island. We visited the Diner restaurant and the welcome from the manager at the entry was cold at most. he seemed bothered to seat us. However, the...waitress seemed friendly. The food was very disappointing and when I tried to use a gift debit card at the counter, the manager told us that they do not take those. I then asked about a coupon I had for a percentage off and he laughed and said he dod not take those either. I paid in cash and left very disappointed in this experience.More

Chose this place as it was excellent a couple years ago. This time, we took entire family after telling them how good it was, only to be very disappointed, we will never return. The Resturant was only 1/4 full, service was pretty good, but our...breakfast food arrived cold, bathrooms were just nasty. So dirty, they looked like something you would find at a filthy gas station. We’ve seen much nicer cleaner bathrooms in a gas station. With bathrooms that bad, we can only imagine what the kitchen looks like. Yuck!!!More

In Hilton Head for a week. Food everywhere around us was limited. We found this diner, very close to our condo, the last 3 days. If we found it earlier, we would have ate there everyday and every meal. Food was great, variety and cost....Place was very clean and friendly staff.More

Just like a good ole New York Diner! Onion soup was delicious and side of fries was enough for entire table of 4! Excellent Corned Beef Sandwich as well as Chicken Salad. Gyro was classic! Wish we had room for the traditional big cake desserts.

It has been a long time since I had a real Diner breakfast like I used to get in the Northeast. So it was a treat to have a true diner experience in Hilton Head. We had a great breakfast and I certainly recommend this...Diner.More
