We visited on a midweek late lunch time and Damon’s was still busy. It is clearly a popular local regular haunt. This makes sense as food is served at reasonable prices from early morning to late evening - and most people (us included) have a weakness for tasty, mostly pretty unhealthy, guilty pleasure, American style diner food from time to time, which is exactly what Damons specializes in! The atmosphere is a little like that found at some cinema/theatre restaurants - film posters and hollywood star photos on the walls, a cocktail bar (mostly for show) etc.
Our welcome at the desk was understated to say the least(!) but things improved as our waitress was cheerful and friendly. We both chose all-day breakfast style meals. I had the corned beef hash (reasonably good), my wife the sausages (average) - both came with eggs (any style), mushrooms (completely tasteless & almost unrecognizable), toast & preserves and, the star attraction, some very nice herb flavoured ‘roast’ potatoes. The meal really was exactly the one you would expect. It was very average, 3 star, but still one of those experiences you would go back and do again without taking too much convincing! Having lived in The States I know, as will many many others, that Damons is not very authentic ‘American’. For some reason none of the American diner chains have ever ventured here and recreated the real thing which actually tends to be a far far better quality. I think they would have cleaned up in the UK but I suspect Damons are cleaning up in Lincoln anyway! There must be some really good independent American diners out there - we have never really found any first class ones. Recommendations please Tripadvisors!
