“A great place to eat”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This dinette takes you back to the 50s. The service is good. The wait staff is very kind. However they have made adjustments in their portion sizes. The portions are now smaller than normal.

“Mayberry RFD in Babylon Village”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Well worth the sometime 5 minute wait to be part of the old town diner feel. Super friendly owners Hapi and Chrissy and their great staff make you feel like to are part of the family. The Idaho is not to be missed as well as the Rueben. But really everything is absolutely delicious. Y'all come down and see them sometime, you will not be disappointed.

“Food is great, service not so much”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

The food at this little cozy diner is great, especially breakfast items and burgers. However, the service is terrible: the waitresses do not smile, are not polite and never get out of their way to make you feel comfortable. If it wasn't for the food, we would probably never eat there. The space is also small so most of the times you need to wait to be seated.

“over-rated for sure”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Not sure I know what the attraction is...I think it is resting on a reputation from long ago. Thy advertised pumpkin swirl frendch toast. It was 3 slices of Pepperidge Farm bread dipped in egg and put on a griddle for $7.95. Comon...at least make some attempt at homemade bread!

“No disappointment in any selection”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

The hardest part of eating a Glen's is deciding what to have. Breakfast at lunch time? Lunch for breakfast? The choices are way too many. Sit at the counter once, just to see what goes on back there. It is always crowded, so yes, you may have to wait a bit for your order. And the orders don't always arrive at the table at the same time. But the staff is great and the food is good.
The lunch specials are a good value. Crab cakes are my husband's favorite. I could eat anything on the menu.
