“A National Treasure!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Want to eat in an original diner? Try the Wellsboro Diner. The owner has installed a more typical dining room, but you'll miss the ambience if you don't sit in a banquette. The service is sufficient, the meals are at least average, and the memories that the diner brings back are unmeasurable.

“Great Little Town Diner”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

For the price you sure did get alot of food and it was best than the steak house. Wish we would have gone there before The Steak House. It was just a quant little old time dinner! Loved it

“Nice friendly place; average food”
Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

We were staying at a nearby place in Nov. 2012 and our place provided us each day with a $10 voucher to eat at the diner. So, we ate there four mornings. A typical breakfast with 20% tip ran around $16.
The folks are great there and they made us feel very welcome. The atmosphere is great with a friendly local feel to it. Sort of Cheer with food.
The diner itself is beautifully made, although it has a few things built onto it that are less lovely. Unfortunately, the food was only so-so. The eggs were a bit greasy and the hash browns were less crispy than one might wish. The pancakes were a bit coarse and heavy, although very large. The sausage was less spicy than I like and its texture was a bit dense, although it was thin enough to cut easily with a fork.
We were there in late fall, with morning temperatures in the upper 20's/low 30's, and the diner was a bit chilly. So, if you are there in cold weather, dress warmly.
I'd give this place 5 stars for its atmosphere and people and 3 for its food, producing a 4 overall. If I did not have the vouchers, I would not go there for breakfast, even though I really enjoyed the atmosphere.

“Nostalgic friendliness”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

the atmosphere is what makes this diner a definite place to visit. It is a little greasy, not too many healthy offerings, but the food is fresh and not expensive. It is fun to look around and watch food being prepared the "way it used to be".
