“Very poor service...food just ok”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

When we arrived there were a couple girls working the front counter. They finished their conversation before acknowledging our presence. They looked at us annoyed as if we'd interupted them. The table had food and hair on it. The waiter took his hand and wiped up the food then took our order. When I asked for a fork I got major attitude. We tried to be really kind and nice but couldnt wait to get out of there. Just felt like they were more interested in each other than their customers. Will not go back.

“Good Breakfast Place”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

Omlettes were good and the service good. We ate here before we went to board our ship so we had all our bags they were really nice to store them up front while we ate. The food was cheap as well it is one of those restaurants were you can have a decent breakfast at a decent price. The lunch menu looked good as well.

“Ordinary Diner with Great Fried Clams”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

Best thing I can say is the fried clams were great! Otherwise the food was average diner type food. I do not recommend the salads but the burgers and fries are fine. The prices were not cheap but not too expensive as many of the Avalon beach front restaurants are. The atmosphere was relaxed and casual and good for families with small kids. Service was fine. I would try it again for breakfast since the omelettes sounded good, but won't go there again for lunch, unless i'm in the mood for fried clams.
