Was really excited to finally get a table here, this place is so packed! I think my issue is that I'm originally from NY where most of the diners are Greek owned and the food is fantastic. This diner is very southern. Hubby had pastrami on rye, pastrami was really good but they served it on cheap soft rye bread!... More

It is possible to order healthy here, but not likely once you see their menu. From stuffed french toast, creamed chipped beef, to eggs Benedict in creamy hollandaise,... It's all good. As other reviewers have mentioned it is loud, an open cafeteria type spot on the beach, or at the original San Marco location, small 1930's diner.cramped and usually warm,... More

Great Coffee, ridiculously good food. Came here with two other couples and everyone raved about the great food and no one left hungry. Lines can be long but free coffee is offered while your waiting.

Don't go if you want to converse with friends. Over numerous visits the problem became evermore acute, to the point that we have decided to never set foot in the building again. Since the food is decent, nothing special, but decent, we may visit again when the weather is such that sitting outside if feasible. If you are willing to... More

Great food and plenty of it! Make sure someone at your table orders their signature dish, Chicken and Waffles with Strawberry butter and their killer maple syrup with hot sauce! Service is fast and efficient and no one makes you feel rushed to leave; but the flip side is you will probably encounter a wait of 20 minutes or longer!... More

Fun place to stop before heading to the beach for vacation. We all were able to find something we wanted from breakfast to sandwich to burger. Service was fast and food was good.

Had to wait for 30 minutes for a table. So worth the wait The biscuits and gravy was delicious. The croissant French toast sumptuous. Staff is so nice and working really hard to get food out quickly. Peach tea very refreshing.

Thank Dawn B
