“Good Variety, Excellent Food.”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Our family stayed at the Clarion Inn located next to John's Diner twice in two weeks and enjoyed several meals here. Everything we ate was delicious. They have a good variety of food. We ate many food items from blueberry pancakes to Tilapia and steak. The owners are of Greek decent and offer a selection of Greek dishes, as well. I enjoyed a dinner special of crab cakes and steak one evening and they were the best cakes I have ever eaten. They offer a salad bar with the meals that offer a good variety of food. Although they call this a diner, I would say this is more of a restaurant that offers more options than diner food. John's offers a 10% discount if you show your hotel card. Very reasonably priced and worth a visit when staying in this area.

“Make sure you're near a bathroom after eating here!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

The menu is enormous. I can't believe that they can make three dozen entrees well let alone the 20 dozen on the menu. We've eaten there twice and both times have had severe intestinal problems afterwards.

“Good for Breakfast”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

My husband and I came here on the weekends for breakfast as it's really close to our home. The service is nice and fast... good breakfast and reasonable prices.
