Burger too large to eat and lady working very rude! Just arrived in cooperstown and beyond disappointed no shops open and this place doesn't even have a bathroom. Didn't even try the food so disappointed

This is a shoe-box sized diner, but is big in popularity with visitors and locals. There's all-day breakfast, homemade comfort food, jumbo burgers, shakes, pies. Attentive service; you know it's good when the locals eat there. Located in the middle of Main Street, Cooperstown.

Stop in for a great burger; good shake, too! Tiny place, but has character. Place had been around almost 100 years.

This very small diner is like stepping back in time. We had breakfast here before visiting the Hall of Fame which is across the street. The service was friendly and the food was great. A neat place to eat.

We needed a break from the National Baseball Hall of Fame, so we had lunch at the diner. One of us had the goulash "special" and the other the chicken wrap. Cooperstown Diner reminded us of a diner our hometown had many years ago.

What can I say? When you find a tiny diner, you need to check it out, and the Cooperstown Diner is just that: a tiny diner on a small lot on the main street in Cooperstown. It was our breakfast base for our long weekend in town. The diner opens at 6 a.m., and by the time we got there... More

Stopped in for a late lunch while visiting the Hall of Fame. This place is small! Maybe 4 tables for 4 guests each, and about 10 seats at the counter. Still, the food was worth the wait. I had a thick cheeseburger and curly fries and both were delicious. The pancakes were also very good, and the eggplant fries were... More

We stopped in for dinner just for kicks. Cooperstown Diner is shockingly tiny which is kind of a hoot. I imagine it would be a bit less fun, however, if the place were packed. My hamburger was very good and my girlfriend's chicken fingers were just ok. Both our meals were nicely priced and came in good portions.

Extensive menu, personal attention from server, wonderful small town diner. Lots of homemade desserts and breakfast all day. Not much seating but very homey. George Bailey might have eaten here.
