This restaurant has fast, friendly service - but the food is average at best. Doesn't live up to ratings as far as their food is concerned.

I am single and went there for breakfast but was largely ignored. Took forever to be waited on and then the only time the waitress came back was to drop off the check. When late wife and I used to go we were happy with the service and food. However I will never go there solo again.

I went there with a friend. I had the reuben and fries. They were fabulous. Her onion strings also were very yummy. It wasn't very crowded, but we had good service and good food. It was a great evening all around

We have visited Allison's Fine Diner occasionally since they opened, and you never know what you are going to get. The steak salad is terrific, the meatloaf is tiny. We had breakfast there once, the options were limited but food was good. The kitchen does not seem to update the server if something is out ("86"), so different servers make... More

Both times on a Firday when they were very busy. We like to see the staff in action,and they didn't flinch! We sat at their bar,... More

This is our family go to place for breakfast. Varied menu, good service but is a bit slow when crowded, such as Sunday morning after church. Go to McDonalds for for fast food! Kid friendly, large fish tank. Value dining, our last bill for 2 was $14.50.

We were visiting the area from out of town. We are arrived at Allison's diner on Sunday morning and waited about 15 minutes for a table. We ordered our food and waited another 50 minutes prior to being served. The waitress mentioned they were very busy but around us the tables were either empty or were filled with people also...

Stopped here on a whim as we passed through Mt. Vernon. We had fast and friendly service on Monday night. Not fancy food but very good. Normally don't eat the buns on sandwiches, but this was excellent, appeared and tasted homemade, filled with fresh sauteed veggies. Husband had the meatloaf which was huge and quite tasty. We would definitely visit... More

I ordered the wedge salad for appetizer and pulled pork quesadilla. It was good. Bread was amazing to start with. Prices were great. The entire bill for three people was less than $40 and one guy ordered a glass of red wine. Would eat here again.

The server made the experience- she was very friendly throughout the evening. Food was somewhat slow to come out after ordering and our nachos were a bit over done (burned chips!) BLT was good as was the salmon. If you want to avoid chain restaurants and fast food, this is a good option.
