I met a friend here and really enjoyed the place. Old school with something for everyone... except perhaps for the super health conscious. Reasonably priced.

We went there with another couple for dinner. We ordered johnny cakes, meatloaf dinner, Ployes, and a Monte Christo sandwich. Everyone like what they ordered. The Monte Christo sandwich was UGE!!! The diner is retro and takes you back in time as a lot of the elements are original even though there was once a fire. If you like diners,... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my dinner here - had a Tuna Salad sandwich on sourdough with fries. It's a lovely old diner and the interior remains authentic. Menu is slightly upscale diner stuff (humus on the menu for example). Service was very friendly and efficient - food was better than expected. Only reason not giving 5 stars is that it is a... More

The "Town Diner" was recommended by a resident of Waterton (our row mate on flight to BOS). It was well worth the drive from Cambridge, walking a couple of blocks in rain (no on site parking available) and standing outside for a short period of time with the chilly wind. We were told that the line often wraps around the... More

We were looking for breakfast in the area and so happy we got to experience this diner. Food was amazing and the service was fast and friendly. We knew we were at the right place when we saw how crowded it was with locals.

If you love the true diner experience, this is for you! Fabulous menu with lots of old fashioned favorites and lots of new! This is a busy place with fast service. They have gluten-free pancakes, johnny cakes, and ploys, a French Acadian buckwheat pancake that you can normally only find in Northern Maine. This is obviously a popular place with... More

We read excellent reviews of this diner, but drove right past it. A very tiny restaurant in a busy area. Very glad we found parking, because this diner is not to be missed! Excellent service, good prices, and terrific quality of food. You must try the sweet potato pancakes!

A 50s-era diner car with fans, stainless steel, free coffee and soda refills, copious portions, burgers, reubens, egg preparations of every description, pancakes, busy yet warm waitresses who call you "hon." What's not to love? I'm not from MA but it warmed my Jersey soul.

Sunday evening after a long day touring with 3 kids we stumbled onto this diner which is 5 minutes away from our lodgings. All 3 picky kids found something they liked and we 4 adults were also very pleased. The ownet was presiding over the efficient friendly service and gladly told me the history of this 71 year old icon.... More

This place has turned into a place with long lines, barely average food, and over the top prices. Long gone are the days where a diner was a cheap place to catch a quick bite. Parking is on the street if you are lucky enough to find a spot. And seeing the kitchen through the windows from the gas station... More
