In the area and found this seemingly great little spot. Busy weekend morning and line stretched out the door (its gotta be good, right?). The staff here is SUPER AWESOME! Very friendly and made the 30 minute wait to be seated seem like only seconds....More

It's hard to improve on a great experience but my most recent visit to Hawksbill Diner was the best. Not because of the food (which is always fresh cooked and on point) it was because of the servers and the locals. When you walk in,...More

The food here is amazing. The service is outstanding. The reason I gave them 4 stars is because they are a cash only place and they have limited seating. If they would just do some minimal updating this place would be hands down the best.

Wow, what a pleasant surprise, small but quaint family style diner. 5 adults stopped in for lunch, ended up order from the dinner menu, All homemade food, great selection and very reasonably priced.

What a lovely warm greeting! Friendly folk, delicious food (try the rye toast!), and VERY reasonable prices. Coming from the New York area we were stunned at the prices ($1.50 for grits; $2 for pancakes). Very satisfying and a nice peek into local life.
