We were in portsmouth to visit the university my daughter is thinking of going to, we had read mixed reviewes on the American Diner but we thought we would give it a go, we were glad we did the menu was very appealing, we had the breakfast pancake stack which was truly an American portion size! the bacon was cooked just how we like it and so were the eggs. we were welcomed with a warm atmosphere and good friendly service nothing was too much trouble for the waiter. we will definately visit again when in portsmouth.

On a very wet and windy evening Jags welcomed us with a warm atmosphere and good friendly service was well received. Really tasty steak cooked to my liking and my husbands meat tatties went down a treat.... Good luck Jags we shall be back soon ! Recommended

Visited about 6 times now and always loved it. Very surprised to read the terrible reviews as it has always delivered for us. It could do with a few more customers to create a little more atmosphere but hopefully more people will discover this delightfully decorated diner and sample some great tasting food - especially the breakfast pancake stack which is truly American portion size!

Needing some food after tiring weekend, the American Diner was very appealing, however, having ordered the southern fried chicken and sweet potato fries, they had no taste, well - not entirely true - there was a distinct taste of grease / oil. My partner ordered the pulled pork burger which was very sweet and disappointing.
The money seems to have been spent on the décor as that looked great, however, think they may have lacked attention on creating a tasty product,
