I get to visit this diner about once a month with a group of friends who meet here. We get great service - and the breakfast food is good too. I haven't eaten here at any other time besides breakfast, so this review is based...More

When you want a not too fancy lunch or supper this is a great place to go for the basics. Nice wait staff, decent food.

Just your average breakfast place. Nothing special but decent food. A place where the locals hang out.

Was headed for a train ride and stopped in our favorite diner for another good breakfast. Our server was attentive, the food very reasonable and delicious. Always happy to find a diner that serves V-8!

Typical diner. Breakfast was typical; omelettes, pancakes, etc., but very tasty, cooked correctly, and somewhat larger than most breakfast chains. Service was good, & prices were reasonable. Overall a good experience. Would recommend

We eat at Bear Swamp during the "Wheels of Time" event. The diner handles crowds well with a friendly wait staff. The special I had was the classic burger/fries with ice cream soda...perfect for a car show!
