This old fashion diner has great malts...you even get the metal cup with all of the leftovers! The mash potatoes and gravy will remind you of mom's!

Great location, great ambience, it is easy to pop into the Diner. This visit was so-so however. Our breakfast was fine -no big complaints but I suppose that makes it just average. The 2+2+2 (2 pancakes, 2 eggs, 2 bacon strips) sounded like a good idea, but it was, well, average. Listless, really. My associate had Eggs Benedict which were... More

This local dinner should be franchised. The have great food for breakfast, lunch or dinner and the milkshakes make the meal complete. It is cleverly located in beautiful downtown and is with walking distance to many great attractions. There is even a trolley to falls park.

Can't go wrong - great atmosphere, great staff and very good food. (if you like sweet potato fries - you'll be thrilled!). Lots of old time things to choose from as well as some of the newer food trends. Service is quick and food is hot. Enjoy!

Great food! Great atmosphere! Mac and cheese was the favorite by everyone at the table. Wait was only 15 minutes and it has outside seating available.

Had the eggs Benedict 1/2 order and they were delicious! Hash browns could have been a tad crispy but that's my preference. Sausage gravy was good with a surprise ingredient. Burrito was hearty and with chili for breakfast how could you go wrong? It wasn't slathered, just a bit on top like homemade!! Coffee great!

The food and service were ok, but after asking for a quiet spot we were seated next to a booth with screaming kids standing on their seats. Glad to get out of there.
