“Good comfort food in a classic diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Good, substantial comfort food in a no-frills, no-glitz classic diner that goes back to the '50's. Terrific fresh-baked blueberry muffins! Patti is the (blond) friendly, welcoming waitress of the sort you don't find too often these days. A good place to stop on your way up to, our out from, the Berkshires!

“Great place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

The fish fry is always awesome, plenty of, good batter, if your passing thru or a local, great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Typical diner, but the food is always good and the prices are very fair.......

“It's a diner - consistently pretty good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

Stop here often with the grandkids in the afternoon after school. Food is good diner food - breakfast, lunch, dinner meals any time. Never disappointed with typical burgers/dogs and fries. Can't speak to other type of food or meals. Servers are always friendly and attentive.

“Pass this one by...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

Staff is friendly and attentive, but the food is simply awful. Atmosphere is dingy. Menu and decor need an overhaul. Keep driving a few more minutes into Hillsdale, Copake, Hudson or up the Tacinic for a far better diner/dining experience.
