“Not worth legendary status”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

mediocre off campus college food and poor service. Prefab hamburger with stale roll. BLT served without mayo. Expensive lemonades. We eyeballed the grilled sticky buns at the next table and they looked unappealing. My husband is upset that Penn State students -already burdened by high costs - pay so much for the Diner's mediocre fare.

“Great diner breakfasts”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

The food is good, but they up charge for everything. The waitress was a little slow and we had to ask for refills, even though the place was almost empty. We do go here whenever we are cycling in the area, however.

“We eat here often”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This place is very much a diner, with diner-style food and a fun wait-staff. I've never had a bad meal. Their soups and entrees are good, and they have fantastic desserts. It's not fancy, but their prices are reasonable, and we go there enough that the staff knows us by name.

“Stay away from here”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

I dont know where to start my husband and I went out on a date night and it was a Friday night this place had no lines. that should have been clue number one. we interrupted one of the waitresses who walked us to a booth and walked away turns out she was actually our waitress. Over 5 mins later she gets our order. No one is in the diner but NY husband and me. We got burgers. They were gray... possibley boiled? Tasteless. I just threw up before writing this and dont have the energy to write more. Just don't bother with here.
