We met a friend who took us there for a special treat! It was good, very busy, not exceptionally clean, and the bacon and eggs were sitting in a pool of grease on the plate. Rushed service is one thing, but as one who has worked as a waitperson, this is not acceptible.

Awesome breakfast. That's all I can say as I've not had anyhting but breakfast there. Go there at least once a W/E. Sometimes, service is a bit slow if they're slammed, but the food will ALWAYS be hot and fresh.

Taking my 2 kids there for lunch cost me over $25. That's a lot for diner food. If it was trendy, gourmet diner food maybe...

I have been there a whole bunch of times. Somedays the food is good, some days the food is ok. It is open all night so if you are driving through Ithaca at 3am and nothing else is open - stop on in. Service is usually slow. Some days the diner is packed and then the service is really slow.

The service is fast and attentive, but there's just nothing on the menu that looks very good, and I've been a little disappointed with what I've tried.
