Love that there is a place for burritos, quesadillas and gyros in old forge. I've had them all and they're awesome. My wife has had the"MG burger", chalupa, and philly cheese steak and lived them all. The diner menu is also available in the bar, which has a really neat atmosphere. We love coming here!

Its a new place in town i had to try it. It was pretty good. The food came out fast especially for the large crowd. I had the biscuits and gravy. It was perfect. Highly recommended. There is also a bar, " the back door". They had live music and a wonderfully lighted atmosphere.

There aren't a lot of dining options in Old Forge in November, so we thought we'd try the Front Door as it's relatively new.

It's somewhat unique in the area in that it offers some tex-mex food and subs ( the other sub place being closed for the winter ) but the food was certainly nothing to write home about. The atmosphere is definitely Spartan. Service was adequate.

So expect to have an utterly forgettable meal, but I suppose that beats having a bad one that sticks in your memory.

In keeping with an Old Forge tradition, no good breakfast choices, this diner was cold, the food unappetizing, the meal did not come out all at once, and no one really seemed to care.

Ate here while visiting Old Forge for the first time. Easy place to park right outside when parking seemed to be at a premium everywhere else. I was really drawn in by the menu offerings on the window but was a bit disappointed that what's on the windows is pretty much all they have. Not a lot of menu items but what they do have is pretty good. I had Chico's Burrito which was a bit different for a burrito but I enjoyed it. The homemade salsa is excellent!! Service was good but not outstanding. No breakfast food at all if you expect that in a diner and their desserts, especially the pies, were very disappointing.
