“Not the same anymore”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

The original Jenny Lynn's was owned by a husband/wife team, and named after their daughter. After the wife passed away, the place was sold, but retained the name. The food is just so so, now...not like it used to be when "the mrs" was there and had her hand in making everything. I haven't gone back to try their dinner now that they are open in the evening, but might give it one more try.

“Decent Breakfast”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Omlet was pretty good. Toast was not toasted. Everything else wasaverage. Price is reasonable. I would not go out of my way to get here. It is a pretty standard diner. The seating is more like a bar. Service was good.
