This is a fairly typical diner, fast and efficient for breakfast, especially at weekends, but be prepared for a short wait. Tables are turned around very quickly, but there is no pressure to 'gulp and go'. Prices are a bit more than other breakfast places, but the selection of waffles of all types, including the 'chili waffle' is spectacular and the eggs, bacon, toast, home fries and coffee can be got for $10. For dinner, the 'Fish and Chips' are quite acceptable and the fish is fresher than expected, if a bit over-battered. Malt vinegar is available on request, if a bit puzzling to some of the wait staff. I really like the place. No airs, just decent food, speedily prepared.

My husband and I were looking for a place to eat after some shopping and found this restaurant. Walking in, I didn't think it would be so nicely appointed - and very clean. I was in the mood for a Thanksgiving plate 3 days before the actual day, and they have it. Luckily my Mother doesn't use TripAdvisor because it was Wonderful, more yummy and filling than the meal my Mom made!

My husband really liked his dinner, and since we were there in time for the Early Bird pricing, with tax and tip we paid $25.

A great visit all the way around - now only if it wasn't 45 minutes from our home...

Salad dressings are low budget, eggs tasteless. Wait staff are friendly, to bad the food doesnt support them. Should be better for the prices paid. Now its the only diner in town. We need some late night competition. I would pay for a higher quality diner food

A friend and I stopped here for a quick breakfast on our way down to Philadelphia. The breakfast was delicious, service was efficient (not super friendly) & food came out very fast!

Overall, we had a great experience here and I would recommend it for hungry travelers especially!
