“Great place to eat or just take a break.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

Started coming here in the 60's when Toney owned it. Rose made the dogs. Was great then as now. Was there last year and the people are still just as nice. A must stop when in Duluth. Maybe not a four star but a excellent place to get off your feet for a while and have a good meal.

“Worth the stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

First time at Coney Island .... I was impressed. I had double Coney with cheese and was not disappointed. I want to know where they get their dogs!!!! Excellent flavor. Too full to try a gyro but according to my friend they are excellent. He's a regular. Very clean establishment with lots of room. I've been in the food business for 20 yrs and was impressed! Best kept secret in Duliuth? You tell me.

“Living History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

This place has been around for a long time. Friendly staff, good food featuring coney and Chicago dogs, inexpensive, they also make a good breakfast but we never made it out of bed early enough for that. Within walking distance of Canal Park.

“Lack of customer service focus!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Food is ok, what you'd expect in a diner like this. Complaints: No paper in toilets, no paper towels in restrooms. Overheard take out order where customer asked if there was ketchup, napkins, forks- No they didn't include them ...so I think they could do a bit to improve customer service on all fronts.
