I have been here a few times fast friendly. The breakfast simple but cooked to perfection. Love the 80's music small but cozy!

Absolutely tasteless home fries, and barely cooked. Poached eggs were good, but this may be the first time I couldn't taste any bacon in the bacon. The waitstaff looked hungover, and would rather eat THEIR breakfast than take my order. I remember now why I haven't been here in years.

The wheelhouse is our go to breakfast joint. Over the past 10 years, it is undergone a number of changes in staffing. Some of the atmosphere has changed. The famous-or infamous, if you choose-Doug no longer mans the grill. So that means that you don't hear him yell for waitresses to pick up an order. You also don't get to... More

This is my favorite breakfast spot. The food is always quick, tasty, and cheap. The place is small and usually hopping, so don't be surprised if you have to wait for a seat. Only negative is that tables only seat up to four people. Cash only!

Found this place while looking online. We met some friends in Boston and decided to start the day here. It's an old tiny dingy diner but the food is excellent. I had eggs with potatoes and kielbasa. It was excellent. I can still taste the kielbasa, it was that good. I would go back.

The Wheelhouse offers reliable fare at affordable prices. I enjoy sitting at the counter and watching the grill...especially at breakfast. There is typically a mound of home fries off to the side of the grill. The food is always hot and fresh. Visit The Wheelhouse for an authentic diner experience. 😃
