“Waitresses are miserable and place is filthy.”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Overall the place is filthy. Waitresses are miserable. Food amounts are never consistent. Huge holes on ceilings. Thick dust everywhere. Very noticeable large cobwebs. And one time saw waitress scratching the hell out of her head and the fixing bra strap under her shirt. 3 times out of five my order was over cooked. Place sucks and is terrible. Will never go back there again.

“Known for their gravy fries”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The Glider is down the street from Scranton High School and is known for their roast beef and gravey fries. They do a good lunch and transform into a diner at night.

“BEST comfort food!!!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Once a week our office has an "order out" day and the Glider is one of our top choices. If you want a "comfort" meal, order the open face turkey or roast beef with mashed potatoes! The BEST!

“Take me back”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

For the real American Diner experience , the Glider Diner and Chicks are Scranton landmarks. Good food, like mom's home coking !, good value and great wait staff. It's like to going to your friend's grandma's for breakfast, lunch or dinner. all the old favorite comfort foods available, even fried baloney ! Make this a regular stop.

“The Glider!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

I've been going to the Glider for nearly 50 years. The food, atmosphere, serving staff and prices are all "to boast about."
