My dad loves to stop here on our way home from Dover, DE. We so enjoy the great food that we have had for lunch here. This time I got Tapioca pudding for desert that was wonderful. You can't find that in most restaurants. We will be stopping there again.

Have enjoyed our past meals, but this stop it seems like it's starting to slip. Friday night and not crowded should be cause for concern, but they just aren't serving the same food they have in the past.. our server Angel was a gem, friendly, attentive and professional. I ordered a Greek salad which could only be considered a Greek... More

We had a large party and luckily they were able to seat us right away. The menu had lots of choices and everyone had something different. The food was good and lots to pick... More

We stopped at the Sage Diner for a late lunch on our way to Chincoteague Island. The service was great, the food was good, and the portions were quite large. The meatball sub had tasty meatballs and a flavorful tomato sauce, topped with mozzarella cheese on a torpedo roll. The roll was my only complaint, it could have been more... More
