Each day they have specials but be sure to go early as we missed out on some items. A nice diner that has very friendly service. Nice menu to choose from but just get there early enough to have some pie too. Reasonably priced.

Not one of the modern 'faux' diner like places, but a real one, with stains and some dents, and all the character and smell you expect. Good old fashioned diner food, not that healthy stuff that places now push. A great place for lunch!

We love the idea of diners, those small, intimate eateries where you expect home cooking and generous portions. The Birdseye in simply OK with a minus sign. The teen-aged staff during our dinner visit was very lively and friendly. They were prompt and answered our questions on menu items and served promptly. The issue was really that the food was...

Brought the family out for breakfast; this diner accommodated both our two year old and newborn with plenty of room. The waitress also gave the two year old age-appropriate servings shared from the parent's meal. Thanks!

This is a great little diner on the main road in Castleton. We were in town for a basketball tournament and descended upon this little place with our whole team and parents. Thankfully we timed it right and we all fit in the little room on the end of the diner. The waitresses were awesome and handled the chaos like... More

After a couple dozen ham & cheese omelettes you'd think I'd try something else. Wrong. Big & fluffy with no hide like a basketball, lots of greasy home fries, and tasty sour-dough toast. A can barely finish my wife's!

I was travelling on business and stopped in for a quick bite to eat. As it was just before Christmas, the place had a wonderful festive atmosphere, and the food was good. As a lone diner I felt comfortable and even lingered awhile.

I had fried haddock which was nice and fresh and nicely done. The service was a little haphazard, but overall it was a nice dinner.

Had lunch here today. Two cheese burgers and fries. Everything was hot, service was quick. Homemade onion rings could have been fried longer. Overall, it hit the spot!
