“unique experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

Classic breakfast in a small diner. Very small had to share table with another couple, but a very friendly unique experience. It is the second time that have eaten their and like the the history and a step back in time.

“Classic diner food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

This place is a quintessential diner. Great for after bars or a heavy breakfast to help cure a hangover. Don't expect high end food; this is just simple diner food but they do it well.

“Cool Diner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

We make the 5 hour trip to Columbia 4 or 5 times a year. We usually eat breakfast at The Broadway Diner. Definitely a greasy spoon but a must do at least one time. Small restaurant but quick and friendly service always. There's a lot of history in this place. It is definitely a step back in time!

“Great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

As usual had a great breakfast at the diner. Had the stretch, one of my favorites. This is a small place, so be prepared to wait to sit down, but it usually goes pretty quickly so don't be afraid to hang out. Both the food and the service are excellent

“Don't Miss It!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Don't miss the opportunity to eat at this "throw back" iconic diner. Service is great, food is excellent, coffee hit's the spot but the wait may do you in. They move fast so it is worth the wait!
