Yum! Generous portions. Swift service. Good food. What I noticed is that despite the dining room being over half full it was quiet. People speak to their dining companions and are not trying to entertain the whole place. This made for a very chill peaceful breakfast.

This 24 hour diner provides good, inexpensive food all hours of the day or night. It is an icon in Watervliet, a working class town outside of Albany. Don't let its location aside the railroad tracks keep you from going inside. Service is quick and the food is reliable.

Super friendly staff. Food is average diner fare. Not a scratch kitchen for sure, but hits the spot after a long night out.

This place would get a better review if the waitstaff was a little friendlier. The food was mediocre and really hasn't changed much over the last 20 years or so. It is an ok place to eat if you need/want to stay in Watervliet. If you can travel a little further, probably better to go up the hill to Latham.... More

If this lace were called Cheers you would understand why! It is one of those places where it seems everyone knows your name. Friendly local spot with great food items and specials. Home cooked food and just a nice feel to the place. Be sure to check it out if you share able. This is a spot you could easily... More

We're been for breakfast, lunch, and late night. Open 24 hours. Big Breakfast, Omelet, Burgers, Ruben, Hot Roast Beef, and Hot Meatball Sandwich all good. Diner is clean and service is very good. Always daily specials.

This place was recommended for it's inexpensive food from a person who ate there one time. Wish we had passed on eating there. Although the inside was cute - and small - and the service very fast, the food wasn't what my husband and i expected. I ordered a meatball sandwich for about $7. It arrived without any side dish,...
