Building recently painted (poorly) on the outside and looks like a dump. This diner needs work, both inside and out, to attract new customers. Hard to tell if the inside is clean as it is very dated and dingy. The breakfast menu is standard diner fare...nothing to be excited about. Upon entering both the staff and other diners give the...

First, let me say that I like (no, love) old diners. Something about an old trolley car style diner takes me back into American history. For years I have passed this diner located behind the West Shore Farmer's Market in Lemoyne, PA. And, despite it's dreary, run-down appearance I thought a bargain may be found here. A diamond in an... More

I am glad to see that these types of diners are still out there. If you are in the mood for a no frills, filling and a very good breakfast, these are the types of Diners you should go to. If you stick to the basics, you will be rewarded with an inexpensive breakfast that Denny's can't match. I was... More

Authentic diner, yes it shows its age, but that is part of the charm. Good food at extremely reasonable prices. Menu is quite large. Service was fast and efficient. Seriously, with food prices what they are these days - I don't know why this place isn't packed to the gills.

Food is very reliable. Staff is very efficient and happy. Not the best salad bar. One of my favorite places for an egg sandwich. Very busy on Sunday mornings.

The place was clean when we were there, old but clean. Authentic Diner atmosphere and really good diner food. Friendly staff. My grandson loved it and we will be returning. Cheesesteaks are fantastic!

If you are looking for an authentic diner experience, the West Shore Diner in Lemoyne should be on your list. The service is good, the food typical diner fare, and the setting itself, well let's just say it needs more than just a facelift, Still, it's fun to sit at the counter and watch them cooking your meal in front...

I have eaten at many diners over the years & find some of the best food to be at the small mom & pop type places. The size of this diner & the run down look I can get past however the layers of dirt on the window sills, blinds, etc was disturbing. Dead flies all over a window sill... More

We were staying at the Radisson Penn Harris and wanted to find a diner for breakfast. We found the name and address of the West Shore Diner and very easily found it, but I would have just kept driving after seeing this run-down little trailer if it wasn't for my husband who said not to be scared off by appearances....
