Was not the first time I ate here. The food and service was excellent. It was busy for breakfast but we did not have to wait at all.

Its name says diner and that's the menu that they have but they do it all so well. They serve a delicious corn muffin with most entrees. I had the fried whole clams and they were possibly the best I've ever had. The cornmeal? type...More
