Upon entering restaurant and waiting to be seated the hostess is also the cashier. She was more interested in talking to the people checking out than seating us. When we did get seated, we had an awesome waitress by the name of Christie. She was very attentive and recommended various dishes.

Food I would rate as fair. The cook forgot to place items on my sandwich. The waitress did make sure it was corrected immediately.

Bathrooms STINK to high heaven. The total facility needs an update.

We saw the Manager at another table and he looked like a total grump. Get a better attitude dude or get out.

Because the restaurant looked inviting and "homey"; plus had several local vehicles in the lot, we ignored the hotel clerks references for dinner and ate here. We've eaten in many local diners when we travel so the looks and shabby interior did not sway us. The food however was just not good! I had the baked cod special. The cod was obviously frozen filets that were dry and past any notion of being flakey. The vegetables were from a can and under seasoned. My husband had the pork chops. They were dry, tough and under seasoned. We are not hard to please but $30 for a meal this bad was sorely disappointing. My husband expressed the truth about the meal when asked about it at checkout. All he got was a brief" sorry" with no concern at all. Very disappointing. This restaurant could use some help - maybe Robert Irvine will take pity and make a visit for Restaurant Impossible. I will say in closing the waitress was very nice and efficient.

I have eaten at the Diner for breakfast and dinner over the last few years when we visit Charles Town and the casino.

Our visit on 8/11 for dinner around 640pm may be our last. Things have really changed for the worse. The hostess seemed pained to acknowledge us and once she did , she shuffled her feet to a table and threw the menus down and walked away.

The dining area was dingy and tables needed to be cleared.

Our waitress was pleasant and the only bright spot of the evening.

Our meals were mediocre at best ..the salad lettuce was wet and some pieces were brown, the chicken noodle soup was oily and the shrimp salad sandwich was just not good. The prime rib was a large portion but again the taste was not very good.

Serive was fine.

At the register to pay, the cashier was straightening up some paperwork and seemed perturbed to have to accept our payment.

It's a shame as we always enjoyed this diner as a nice break from chain type restaurants. I Just can't recommend this as an option while in town

We were regular customers at one time. It seemed like gradually the place seemed to become more and more dirty. The bathrooms are especially disgusting..
