Our office is located near Gateway Diner, we ho there regularly. Convenient location, plenty of parking, and they can seat all different size groups. Food is very good, all the staples you would expect from a good diner.

Their portions are very generous and delicious! We even had dessert after breakfast because the home baked goods are too awesome to pass up.

We stopped at the Gateway Diner the other day for breakfast. We had eggs and home-made corned beef hash and an omelette. Both were very good. Our server was very nice.

I used to live close to the Gateway and went there frequently. I moved about seven years ago and haven't returned until this year. The main entrance to the diner is still confusing and easily gets congested. Once we were seated things improved. The service...More
