Great service, good food and a really nice dining room. This is an excellent place to stop and everything on the menu is what you expect for a diner. Only thing negative is the washrooms - to small, very claustrophobic.

Went today with 6 others. We all hated our meals. I had prime rib. Requested medium rare. Came well done. Chicken noodle soup tasted like my Jr. High lunch. Wife had Greek salad. Again, truly bad. Brother said his fish tasted like it was "resurrected"....More

The waitress was fantastic, but food was terrible. I ordered the seafood platter, & I have had it before. The shrimp & scallops were like rubber. Fish was tasteless. My husband had the hot open turkey sandwich. The turkey was very bland, served with brown...More

Great waitress, average diner food. Not gourmet, but hey... It's a diner and salmon on Meditteranean salad was decent.
