“Good food, perfect view & nice staff!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

I have been to the diner throughout the years but with the new ownership it is truly amazing! The staff was super friendly and the food was very very good! Very unique items on the menu as well as traditional diner food and pizza.

“A diner the way a diner should be!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

The calzone is not only HUGE! it was stuffed full of delicious cheese and toppings. It comes to the table served on a pizza paddle... and that is not a mini paddle! This calzone will easily serve two adults or supper, midnight snack and breakfast for one! I really liked the openings in the crust showing off the toppings inside! My friends had the hot beef sandwiches and I had to sneak a bite - the beef was tender and the gravy was perfect diner gravy! Next time I am getting the fries and gravy - the guy at the next table ordered those and he devoured them!

“20 mins - No Service?”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Stopped in Memorial Day weekend. We were seated indoors and got surrounded by a loud group. After 5 minutes of noise and no waitress, we went oustide to a table. 15+ minutes on the paio and not once were we acknowledged. You might think one of the waitresses could have said they would be with us in a few minutes but no. 20 minutes - NO service, NO acknoweldgment. We left and found the Bumpin Buffalo down the street where we got great food and great service.

“Not a prize”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

This place was suggested by one of the guides at Cosmos but it was not a good meal. The atmosphere is a fun 50's diner style but supper was not a memorable event - well actually we will remember it.... Even the rootbeer floats were bad and how does one ruin those?

A couple booths over there was a man that definitely didn't speak English and he must have been in his 50's/60's but because the sign on the door said we ID anyone that looks under a certain age, this man was surrounded by five staff trying to explain to him that he needed ID. Finally someone said the word passport and thankfully he had one! Seriously though, he clearly was NOT underage!

The whole evening was a gong show but as some have suggested maybe the pie and coffee is good????

Won't be back...

“Best desserts around!”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

The food is good, but we go there for the desserts. This is our favorite place for a sweet treat during the Sturgis Rally. The staff is fantastic, and the atmosphere is welcoming. The pies are home made right there in the restaurant (try the blueberry warmed with ice cream). Every dessert there that has been fantastic (and we've had a few and created even more)! And if you just want to stop in to get a cold drink, they are okay with that too. Good Family environment.
