“We keep trying it but it just never gets better”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Ok for breakfast but it ends there. We keep giving it shots because it's close and convenient, but we always feel it was a wast of money. Rude service, not the best food, dark and dreary. Drive the extra 10 minutes to Time to Eat in Bridgewater.

“Terrible atmosphere”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

It is a shame that they don't give this place a facelift - it is so out of date and pporly decorated. it feels dirty, even if it isn't. Food is 'eh'

“Best Diner Around”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is your typical neighborhood diner...in fact, this is our neighborhood diner. We go here every weekend for breakfast, lunch or dinner and the food is always fresh and tasty. Sometimes they go overboard with heavy sauces or oil, so you need to be very specific with your ordering if you would like things to be a bit lighter. In my opinion, the Turkey Club sandwich is their best dish...the quality of the turkey is fantastic.

“Just about a fair diner, don't go out of your way, though.”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Eggs and pancakes are good, but don't go for anything fancy. Homefried potatoes are so-so. Waiting staff seem to have little time at each table. Never really full - says it all.

“Super Variety, Only Game (really) in Town”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

This dinner had so much variety that it would take awhile to get through most items. The fresh scallops are great: the fried ones, frozen and not-so-good. Home made rice pudding, cookies---can't get any better. What could be better: soda prices (over $2), ala cart dinner salad prices ($4.75) and the veggie options at dinner. Order the mini-meals for regular size portions---otherwise, you will bring enough food home for the next 3 nights!
