“A good piece of the old south”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

The restaurant had white and black tile floors, the food was very good, and at a very low price with a discount from our museum visit.

“Lunch December 2012”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

My husband had a Cuban sandwich and I had beer can chicken lunch with coleslaw which was very good and the price was right. We both agreed the service was good and food excellent. Restaurant is across from Ava Gardner museum so is in a good location and was able to park in front of diner. We both would go back again.

“Excellent local eatery”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We went here for breakfast 2 days in a row during our stay at the Best Western (also excellent). I prefer to find a local establishment versus all the chain places by the highway. All the customers knew one another - very small town atmosphere. Good chocolate chip pancakes and my husband liked his eggs. I'll be back

“Great hometown place and all are welcome”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

The Diner is a great place. We eat there many times a week. I have never had anything bad.
Larry is always ready to fill your request. They also cater and speaking from experience, it
is great. If you are looking for good food at a great price without all of the frills, THE DINER IS THE
PLACE TO GO,
