“First time diner”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

We tried this diner and were pleased with the service and the breakfast. It's a rehabbed 1950's diner, very clean and polished. We were able to observe two servers who were both pleasant, helpful, and efficient. The breakfast, crepes with custard and fresh fruit, was delicious. We would like to try it for lunch also.

“not up to expectations”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

food is average and expensive. service is quirky - slow but friendly. Nothing on the menu is really tasty. Great location and atmosphere but needs to step up to succeed

“Great Dining Experience!!!”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

I've been through Lake Geneva several times over the past 3 months and have enjoyed stopping at the diner for breakfast or lunch. The atmosphere reminds me of my "early" days going out for a bite to eat and getting a shake, or other treats. Joni's diner serves up great food and the wait staff has been very helpful and pleasant.

I would recommend Joni's diner for a great meal and maybe for the younger generation to stop by to see how the older generation hung out when they were young!!

“Just so so”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

We had 6 am breakfast at this diner. Actually, kind of disappointed. Coffee was not very good and mugs were unappealing. My husband had blueberry pancakes and even with butter and syrup they were dry and lacking in flavor. This was our second visit in two months...probably not going back and do not recommend.
