“Homestyle cooking”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

Knapp's is a Proctor Street estblishment. It has been there at least 50 years. The food is old style nothing fancy but well prepared. Going there is like going back in time to the 60's.

“Priced too high for average dining....”
Reviewed September 26, 2011

In my opinion, Knapp's reminded me of those places one is bound to find on a cross-country trip at an interstate exit in a rural area. Local comfort food, filled with local people and a décor reminiscent of another era. It reminded me of the places my grandparents took me as a child. The breakfast menu is standard breakfast fare, though with an orange juice priced at $3.69 and an English muffin a $1.99, next time will buy orange juice and keep it at the hotel and skip the English muffin. The restaurant was filled with locals, and some were a tad noisy as is speaking with each another across the dining area. The service was okay, though our wait person did not offer to walk our check up while we finished our coffee. Perhaps nitpicky, but payment on the way out is so old school but in character for the era.

“Greasy Spoon!”
Reviewed June 7, 2011

Not much ever changes at Knapps. Hasn't been updated since the day it was built. Sr. Citizens flock to Knapp's. They serve comfort and diner fare. There hamburgers & fries are good and greasy. The table and menus are sticky and yes the spoons are really greasy. I also wish they could be more cleanly. I would come back for those fries if they were.

“Arrogant service”
Reviewed April 27, 2011

The food, pretty basic, was okay, cleanliness was not the top priority and service was just a little too arrogant for me.
