Loved this place! Felt like an authentic 1950s Diner. Great and friendly service. Amazing food with many vegan choices. I didn't have salad for once! Try them, you'll be glad you did!

Great breakfasts especially for GF family. Love the huevos rancheros and my kids really like the GF pancakes and french toast. Good coffee. Always good service. A little pricy otherwise a 5.

Great updated take on class is diner. Very friendly and helpful staff. Expansive menu full of fresh and locally sourced foods and traditional dishes with a modern twist. So glad we used TripAdvisor to find this while driving down 95. Bison Huevos Rancheros are fantastic.

Had dinner here after church tonight. Food was tasty and fresh and the service was great. I had the salmon and my wife had the chicken picatta. Both dishes were very tasty.

I grieve the impending demise of my favorite restaurant, because if based on our experience this place will be out of business in 6 months. The Silver Diner in our home town went away, so we drove 2 1/2 hours to go to this one. I wanted their tomato moz balsamic vinegar sandwich and I was terribly disappointed. Lots of... More

I go to this place nearly once a day. Every single time I order the BLT with no tomatoes and a fried egg on top. Best light lunch or dinner you can have. The Establishment is clean and very friendly staff. The atmosphere is upbeat and a throwback. There's nothing like sitting down to have a nice lunch and listening... More

Had lunch here with the family twice. The menu has been "upgraded" to a lot of healthier options, and the flavor is still there. We enjoy ordering a milkshake to go with the meal, and even though you get a "food coma" in about an hour, it's really worth it.

I had the crab corn chowder and it was good. Hubby had a burger that was ok. Would have liked to go back and try other menu items. Not super impressed, but would give it another chance if in the area again. Had a nice kids menu with activities that kept the kids entertained until the food arrived.
