It's been a long time since I visited this diner, mostly because their menu was so typical of diner fare and I'm a bit fussy. Well the menu has changed for the better with a lot of new items. It's still a diner, so I can't give it more than 3 stars, but my waitress was very nice and the... More

I want to say the food is great. Pot roast was so good it melts in your mouth. However the waitress I had was terrible. I had to get 3orders to go. She was in a rush to take my order and kept asking is that all, when I finished and got our orders to go. When I got back... More

Family having lunch here today. Most of us split a meal to save room for the beautiful desserts 😃 my turkey club was awesome! The French dip I heard was great. We had a very nice man waiting us and he was very patient with our large group.

I enjoy the Parthenon Diner when I come to OS. It's reliable and the Greek Platter is beyond filling and is really two meals in one. The staff are always pleasant and it was nice to see the pastry display case in an area where you can see it! Thumbs up, Parthenon in OS!

A quick decision to stop in and have some dinner at the diner, under new management. My daughter and I decided , while browsing thru the new menu to try the Corned Beef Reuben. It came in a timely manner and was delicious. The manager came over to check on us and was very present and interested in how we... More

It was a treat to find a small diner to have an excellent breakfast. I am so tired of going to franchises, especially and taking luck of the draw. Some are good -others should lose the franchise! as they do no good for the name. This place is convenient, on the beaten path, clean, welcoming, fresh good coffee and THE... More

We ended up going here twice because it was convenient but it's really nothing extra special...the usual diner fare. Omelets, pancakes, BLT's, Greek platters. All good. Service was okay. Prices were okay. Good place to go if you just need to meet people along a route.

Our server tonight was Janet, a lovely person who prided herself in accuracy and keeping the customer satisfied. A most conscientious and hard worker, she made certain that everyone at all the tables in her section had everything correctly prepared in their order. We were very impressed with her "can-do" attitude and helpful personality.

Excellent breakfast served by a friendly staff. I had a ham, cheese and mushrooms. The cheese was plentiful and the mushrooms were fresh - excellent.
