“Gluten-free buns!”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Nicer chain diner; good value. Our son was excited to be able to eat his burger in a bun. My salad was bland.

“A real diner”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Clean. Food service is good and always consistent. Good value for money as you would expect from a 'real diner'.

The fish & chips were a crazy value in the past. However, fish portion size has shrunk greatly. Still over all a great lunch if you are in area.

Spurge, get a shake.

Went here for a quick lunch before setting off for the airport. A nice, clean restaurant. Good service by the staff and a good variety of American food on the menu

“Good diner food”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

The atmosphere is reminiscent of the diners of old. Food was good and the price reasonable. If you like diners and that kind of food-sandwiches, burgers, milkshakes etc., you will enjoy it.
