“Brings back wonderful memories”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

Whenever I go back home to Chesterton, my sisters and I always go here at least once. The atmosphere is very nostalgic, the people are friendly and the food is delicious. Small restaurant, but it brings back such great memories of growing up in this wonderful little town.

“Great down-home diner”
Reviewed October 17, 2011

We were looking for a local diner in the small town of Chesterton and came across the Northside Diner. It was exactly what we were looking for - great food, friendly service, a "local feel" and good value. We tried eggs, bacon, hash browns and pancakes and all were cooked perfectly and very good. Coffee was fabulous - they never let your cup get even half empty as they are very attentive and keep it topped off. We'll definitely go back next time we're anywhere close to the area.

“Just fabulous - hidden gem”
Reviewed May 25, 2010

Tiny hole in the wall diner but when you go inside-- every thing is like being back in the 50's. They have a wonderful working jutebox loaded with oldies. Original 50's chrome tables and chairs, vinyl booths. The food was homemade right down to the soup and the portions huge with fair pricing. Most of the locals go here. I had a very good BLT with homemade vegetable soup and fresh coleslaw and my daughter had a huge veggie omlete with home fries that was so much we took it home for later.

“neat home style dinner”
Reviewed May 14, 2008

This is the place you might think of when you think Mayberry RFD Quaint 50 style dinner. Frendly people great food and quick service. Not big but a great place to have breakfast or lunch.
