Great food, huge menu and attentive staff. Was here for breakfast and dinner on the same day. Booths are a little dated with some rips and tears in the seating, but the food makes up for it.

I have been to this location once. The staff is friendly and attentive. I had the fried catfish. It was very good and a huge portion that came with two sides and soup for $11. I took enough home for lunch the next day. The French onion was yummy and homemade.

Recommend me stopping if you are passing thru, as the locals already come on a regular basis.

Even if you are heading north on RT13 make a U turn and stop and eat, its well worth the small detour. Staff are always friendly, huge menu of items to choose from and lots of specials.

I stopped here with my mother and aunt coming back from the Outer Banks. We saw a menu at the visitors center just over the Chesepeake Bay Bridge and thought lets check it out because they serve breakfast all day. I am happy we found this diner because it was clean, all the food was very fresh and the staff was very helpful. Given restaurants are limited between the bridge and Salisbury, MD, I am glad we know of a place to stop, if we don't eat on the bridge.

From the time you cross into Virginia from Maryland on US 13, the 75 mile stretch of highway that delivers you to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel offers a very limited dining selection. If you want to try a place that really surprised us with its quality, stop at the Sage Diner in Onley. We just could not envision another fast-food stop and were eager to find a "dining" place; the number of cars in the parking lot of the diner promised that the Sage might be the place to stop...and it was! One of three diners named "Sage" in the area, each is owned individually and we would hope that the others are as good as this one in Onley. Friendly wait staff, very large menu of standard diner food, and Sunday specials that were very reasonable (as was the entire menu). Homemade soups, fresh breads, and great desserts...too amply portioned but we managed to take the extras with us. Eastern Shore Virginia tends to be sparsely populated, with mostly fast food places, so do yourself a favor and get some very good home cooking at the Sage Diner.
