Restaurant is themed like a 50s diner. Small booths - can’t really accommodate large parties. We were expecting decent food based on prior reviews. We were seated quickly. Waitress was ok but didn’t come back frequently to keep our drinks refilled and to check on...More

Stumbled upon this little diner when looking for a lunch spot after leaving the beach one day. The food was delicious, the waitress sweet and attentive, and the decor provided a unique dining experience. It was also kid friendly.

Retro decor is cute and not a large place. Couldn’t go in with a large group to sit together at large tables, just booths for groups of 4. Service was good and menu is typical diner food. Good portions.
