This is a 50's style diner with two must try items...first the Remsen Garbage Plate. It is a cheeseburger on top of home fries on one side and macaroni salad on the other and then cover it all with chili. Now for dessert, if you like peanut butter the Erin Hamlin sundae is a must. Go hungry and enjoy.

Made a bee-line to this place as we had visited a 50's diner in California (Peggy Sue's) before and wanted our 17 year old granddaughter to experience 1 too. As the title of this review says "Nice 50's Diner" though it's not a big one and quite quiet.( It’s in a “one street” town on the old route 12 so not much passing trade).

The quality of the food was good and the female waitress (English) was very friendly so we felt very welcome. The diner was clean but when we were there did not have much atmosphere as it was quiet.

We had a lot of fun at The Soda Fountain. We drove for about a half hour but it was well worth it. The atmosphere and the food are both excellent.

I have been here a few times on trips from a special needs camp, Camp Northwood, not too far away. The staff were always very helpfull and patient with the people we brought.

This was the first time I had been with friends simply for our own pleasure.

It was a very similar experience. Helpfull staff, very friendly and the food was good.

Its a bit of a 'quirky' place, classic red plastic and chrome chairs and tables, very '50,s' style. As an English tourist visiting friends I really enjoyed it. It was pretty busy too, always a good sign.

As a tourist its a bit difficult to say how good on price it was compared with other places in and around the area but I thought it was good value for money too.

My husband and I ate lunch here a few days ago. We had only been there for ice cream once before, and only to the walk-up window. What a wonderful place it is! The service, food and cleanliness was top notch. And the restroom was spotless! I was so glad we chose this restaurant! We'll definitely go back even though it's a 30 minute drive for us.
