“It is what it is”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

Diner food, plain and simple. Ham steak for breakfast is best overall option. How people rave about this place is beyond me, and the thought of having dinner here....well, I never have a thought of having dinner there.

“Great spot for breakfast and lunch”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

While clearly not gourmet you can't go wrong with the traditional breakfast and lunch fare. Good menu for kids as well (milkshakes).
Good service, clean, bright, diner ambiance.

“Not bad, not amazing”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

Ordinary food, gourmet prices, good service, fun atmosphere. Breakfast potatoes undercooked, Reuben sandwich very good, hamburger and fries acceptable, not special.

“The Diner Where Everyone Goes”
Reviewed October 15, 2011

Step back in time to the '50s and '60s complete with jukebox and a classic lengthy diner menu. You want it, they got it, almost always. We've had the special corned beef hash and wish it was offered more often; as well as a "healthy" version of eggs benedict with avocado and tomato. My favorite is the ham and eggs, served with enough ham to be a sandwich streamside later in the day. The place is always full, locals and tourists alike. Try the cherry pie.

“Consistent -- and Good!”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

The service is always good, attentive, AND fast! The food is always good, served quickly, and comes in large portions.

It's a diner. It's not pretending to be gourmet or otherwise. Step back in time and just enjoy it while you eat yourself full.
