She was friendly, helpful, quick and congenial. Everyone in there went above and beyond in friendliness. But the food ..... What can I say. Words are not enough... More

Saturday morning breakfast with friends. The establishment was almost full, but service was quick and attentive. Food was exactly what you would expect in a roadside diner, simple, but flavorful and quick. An excellent experience and value!

We go out for breakfast a lot and we don't need or want fancy, just good food cooked the way we want. The diner is easy to get in to, although it is usually busy. The service is fast and we are on our way starting the day with a good breakfast. They also have good lunches but not open... More

This is the best place in town to eat at. They serve great food with large portions. IF YOU LEAVE THERE HUNGRY, IT'S NOT THEIR FAULT. And the people who work there treat everyone special..

Retro Dinner is just what it says, a diner. It is loud and nothing fancy. The food is absolutely great diner food. Breakfast is a favorite with all the locals. They also make a great burger and have super daily specials, with pie! Portions are large, so beware dieters. One of our favorites! Breakfast and lunch only.

We had a light sandwich (baguette) lunch at the Retro Diner. It has an interesting appearance from the outside and is a bit "basic" inside, but the food is very good and the staff friendly and very helpful. A good experience

Friendly staff and great diner food make this a staple. The burgers are great, winner dinners and they do magic with green beans
