“Great Diner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

This is exactly what you would expect from a country-style diner-good food, inexpensive and friendly staff. There's something about Sunday brunch at a diner that's always fantastic. We had a group of about 14 and not a single problem. We showed up without calling ahead or giving them any warning, but were seated and served promptly. I had a hot roast beef sandwich that was served up perfectly. Nothing fancy and no frills, but a perfect diner experience. They were also very attentive about us having two young children in our group and brought out crackers to hold them over until the good came out. I will definitely be returning to this restaurant.

“More like 2.5 stars”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

This joint is owned and operated by the same family that owns the pizza place next door. If you have ever been disappointed in Spitony's, you can expect the same at Northside, but with table service. The food seems, honestly, to be cooked by the wait staff; consistency is 100-percent non-existent. Even breakfast, eggs and toast for heaven's sake, lacks sparkle or a sense of freshness. That said, it is frequently very busy and I have never had an awful experience; just marginal.

Went there for breakfast and was disappointed with the meals we were served. I was expecting an old-time diner experience, and was disappointed. Slow service, food was only "ok".

“Food is not great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

Went to this place for breakfast one weekend and was not impressed with the quality of food. The place was pretty full of locals though, so I guess it just depends on your standards. Coffee was watered down and pancakes nothing special.
