My husband and I go here a lot. It is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. If you order a dinner you get soup, salad, and a large entree for about $ 10 to $15. Usually, I bring food home, so I get a minimum of another meal out of it. It's nothing fancy, but the food is great. Get the mac and cheese and crab cakes or the veal parm. Cobb salad is good too. Also, save room for dessert - they are known for their cakes, cheesecakes and pies. We love the Blackforest cake.

I love this diner and eat here often with my husband and grand children. The food is home style and there is quite the variety. The prices are good as well. My favorite dish is the salmon with rice and veggies... But I pretty much have had most of the entrees on the menu. AND The Napoleon dessert is the best in the capital district! Actually, you just can't beat their desserts.

We decided at the last moment to go here for dinner and as always were served a great meal with plenty of leftovers. We have never gotten a bad meal here and they are always willing to help with selections and explain the specials.
