Actually it is the only one. Classic diner in "mid town". Works for groups and couples. Offers tables, booths and counter stools. We do breakfast which is always a standout and fairly priced. They do offer very inexpensive dinner specials nightly. Wait staff is very responsive to all customers especially kids. Always busy, limited seating outside on Main Street (Rt... More

A great place to go after being on the lake all day. Friendly staff, timely service, excellent diner food. Just like home cooked. Dessert was an over the top sundae!

A throw back to the diner days of the '50's, the Birdseye Diner offers up a variety of foods. Daily specials offer up a change of pace from the usual menu. I always have hash and eggs when I go for breakfast. For lunch, I always order off the specials, usually a burger or a wrap. The Birdseye offers up... More

Each day they have specials but be sure to go early as we missed out on some items. A nice diner that has very friendly service. Nice menu to choose from but just get there early enough to have some pie too. Reasonably priced.

Not one of the modern 'faux' diner like places, but a real one, with stains and some dents, and all the character and smell you expect. Good old fashioned diner food, not that healthy stuff that places now push. A great place for lunch!

We love the idea of diners, those small, intimate eateries where you expect home cooking and generous portions. The Birdseye in simply OK with a minus sign. The teen-aged staff during our dinner visit was very lively and friendly. They were prompt and answered our questions on menu items and served promptly. The issue was really that the food was...

Brought the family out for breakfast; this diner accommodated both our two year old and newborn with plenty of room. The waitress also gave the two year old age-appropriate servings shared from the parent's meal. Thanks!

This is a great little diner on the main road in Castleton. We were in town for a basketball tournament and descended upon this little place with our whole team and parents. Thankfully we timed it right and we all fit in the little room on the end of the diner. The waitresses were awesome and handled the chaos like... More

After a couple dozen ham & cheese omelettes you'd think I'd try something else. Wrong. Big & fluffy with no hide like a basketball, lots of greasy home fries, and tasty sour-dough toast. A can barely finish my wife's!
