This is a real deal diner. Great service, unassuming diner style, and the best hash around. If you chance to sit next to a local at the counter, that's a bonus.

Had seen it advertise so thought we would try it...the true greasy spoon diner. We sat at the counter as watched the two cooks prepare the food...everything was prepare on the grill...And with loads of butter. The bathroom was small and not very clean

This is a great diner, with the right mood and the chefs working right behind the counter, and great waffles, pancakes and eggs any which way. Family owned and operated for many years.

We have breakfast here whenever we are in Fairlee/Orford (have been coming for 12+ years) A good old fashioned diner with friendly service and good food. It can get crowded on weekends

The number of locals eating here is a good indication that they have good breakfast -- we found that to be the case, but diner is small so you may have to wait for a table.

This place is justifiably famous in the area - and is worth a trip out of the way. Only open for breakfast and lunch, but terrific food. Not fancy, just plain good.

This restaurant is a small and often very crowded diner serving typical diner food. There is really nothing special about it than most diners of the same ilk. Booths are small and four people in a booth would be tight. Especially four average sized guys....More

Need I say more? The food is just mouth watering. It's the kind of place that your stomach remembers and will guide you there again with an equal or better experience than last time.

Local diners are a dying breed. The Fairlee Diner is a not to be missed throwback with a friendly group of waitresses and a great breakfast.
