Stopped by for breakfast with my family after Church on Sunday. Really glad we did! Everyone enjoyed their breakfasts - we had omelets, pancakes, chicken fried steak, grilled cheese - it was all very good. The people that work here are very friendly and helpful....More

The breakfast options were varied and great pricing- $5-6 for eggs, hash browns, toast and meat. Three of us dined for just over $20 including tip! More bacon than expected and the eggs were Fresh and cooked to order. Will definitely return.

Nothing fancy goin' on here but down-home cookin' and eatin'. Breakfast is king here, in my opinion, but if you want real fried chicken or meatloaf and mashed potatoes, this is the place.

A great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Air conditioned in the summer, windows open at times for a breeze of fresh air. The black and white checkerboard walls, traditional counter and stools, and comfort food make this a must.

I try to patronize Lakewood businesses but will NEVER go to John's Diner again. I don't know if it was a rotten potato in my hash browns or a scouring pad that they used on the grill. I almost puked on their counter.

It's a diner...an old diner. You come here for good diner food, large portions, and very cheap prices. We come for the breakfasts and we return for the breakfasts. LOTS of options, friendly "seasoned citizen" waitresses, in a converted train car. You don't come here...More
