Service was terrible-can't understand other reviewers stating otherwise. Breakfast food was average at best and cold. We could see our meals sitting on the pass through from kitchen for about 5 minutes. Not on my return list.

I had scrambled eggs with cheese, which had no cheese in it. The French toast was burnt. The hash browns were patties, not even real hash browns. I can say the service was good, but that was about all that was good. I would say you would have a better breakfast at a fast food chain.

First of all the place is very welcoming, the staff is nice. The waiter that took care of us is very nice and helpful. Food was great, kids love it and for being our first time there we had a good experience.

Restaurant entrees at diner prices. The locals are regulars. The wait staff knows many of them by name and often have there preferences ready before they order. You won't be sorry eating here.

We meet here almost every Sunday after church for late breakfast or an early lunch. The staff is friendly, food is good and you are not rushed.

Agree totally with Kpo137, used to be good. We had a soup that tasted like cream of flour, chicken that was tough, imitation crab, the salad dressings at the salad bar tasted and looked like they came out of a cheap can. We didn't complain and maybe we should have explained why we didn't eat it, but complaining is hard... More

I have tried this restraurant twice for breakfast, since it's close to home. Breakfast was fine, standard diner fare. No problem there. But the service was just terrible. Both times, the waitresses didn't listen, were forgetful, and inattentive. They were more interested in being at the counter chatting with the regulars than paying attention to their tables. There are plenty... More

Stopped in after a show at Levitt Pavilion at Steel Stacks. We never eat there because it is too expensive. Anyway, we thought we'd give this a shot. It used to be Nick's Diner when our son worked here as a kid. It has changed hands and I don't think the food is that bad. Breakfast is still the meal... More

Food was awful. No taste, not fresh, burnt, not seasoned, mushy, it was awful. I think this place changed owners recently and since then went downhill. Stinks because the servers are nice, but it still doesn't make up for the crappy food. If you're looking for a diner in Bethlehem The Palace is the way to go.

Always looks crowded but lots of seating and servers. Prices are very reasonable and good quality is good. Breakfast has a great variety and comes hot and fast. Dinners also good quality.
