Once again we visited the west end diner. Though the restaurant isn't overly large they feed an awful lot of people. 9 times out of 10 there's a line up which they seem to get through quite quickly probably because service is prompt and you don't wait a long time for your dinner to arrive. The last couple of times... More

Love it. Staff is always friendly. The cooks are very quick with orders. The Food is always hot and delicious. Whether you go alone, with a friend or family, there's room for all. But always busy. Be prepared for a wait.

my husband and I enjoy our friday dinner at this diner. the portions are so big that we share an entree. today we shared the fish and chips- two large pieces of fish, a mountain of fries and coleslaw. i still bring some fries home. the service is good and the people are very friendly. we feel right at home.

I had the perogies and my husband had fish & chips. Great portions, and very tasty. The decor is old and run down. We sat at the bench, and the seat covers was torn in half.

My husband and I go whenever we are in Hamilton. We have never been disappointed and keep trying different things on the menu. We try and go at off hours because they are busy all of the time...and for good reason! It is so welcoming but not for the hoity toity!

I went here for the first time and although I would love to give it a FIVE Star for the food, there were little set-backs that prevented me from doing so. PROS: Price, quality of food & menu choices CONS: We sat at the back because we wanted a secluded quite place to talk. Their phone kept ringing and it... More

The Chicken Souvlaki dinner is served on a huge platter. Very flavourful chicken & rice and decent home fries. The Greek Salad was excellent with a tasty dressing. HUGE and I mean HUGE portion. The Hot Turkey and the Beef Dip were also good. Recommended and will go back again for certain.

We have been here a few times and have always had a great meal. Food is freshly made to order with an all day breakfast that my son loves. The owners name and phone number is on every table, a nice touch and shows that she is proud of her restaurant. We have gone for lunch and dinner, specials and... More

There is a New York buzz to this down-home place. It's boisterous, friendly and satisfying. Portions are big enough to share and still take some home for those who eat responsibly. Things you might not expect to be good are good - schnitzel, parms, liver. The spaghetti sauce is one of the best anywhere. The seniors' menu gives good variety,... More
