“High quality Diner fare”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

This is a well lit, very active and excellent dining experience. We have been here dozens of times with not a single issue. Consistently excellent food and service.

“Nice homey diner, friendly staff with good food”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

Visited here for lunch while in the area staying at Great Wolf Lodge. The staff was very welcoming, service very good, and the food good with very reasonable pricing. Nice change from fast food type places. Would go again.

“If you enjoy diners, you'll enjoy this one”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

Classic Greek-family-run diner with good Greek food options (I had the Gyro sandwich and my daughter had the baklava for dessert and both were good). The only thing I wouldn't recommend is the lemon meringue because I think it had been sitting for awhile. The pepper steak was great, my mom liked her shrimp souvlaki and the cheesecake was fabulous as well. Recommended.

“Excellent breakfast in a relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed October 15, 2011

They have everything you want in a place like this: Funny, friendly servers, regulars at the counter keeping every body informed of the local ( and not so local) happenings. Nice Greek family owning and running the place, grandson at the register, working his way through college. CLEAN BATHROOM and GREAT FOOD!!!!!!!!

“Decent Diner--home cooked food”
Reviewed July 30, 2010

If you're interested in a sit-down meal in a clean family-oriented place, go to the Pioneer Diner. The food is all good/decent, but some entrees are better than others, like any restaurant. We had dinner there two evenings while we were visiting the area. At least it's not a chain restaurant and home cooked. Better than most of the fast-food places in the area.
