I've got to give The Famous "props". More than just recreating the decor of a retro, classic diner, they have captured the total "diner experience". Think about how and why you go to the diner. There's never a thought that everybody won't find something they...More

The food was excellent and the wait staff was good. Pricing was as good as some of the fast food or chain restaurants.

The 50s Diner themed restaurant was quite enjoyable. The food was high quality with sizable portions. We shared a huge plate of perfect pancakes. My oatmeal with fruit and yogurt was fresh and delicious. Our server informed us about the many menu items that are...More

Only in size, though. And a stack of them (though you do get offered the option of just having 3, not the standard 5). Very tasty and served with big smile.

Stopped in with friends for a burger and beer. Both were good. The theme is somewhat...cute...reminded me of some old places at home that were dated in the 1960s but here, today, felt right...although the prices are not of the 1950s. You want a solid...More

My clubhouse burger was not too great. The fries were good and prices were reasonable. All in all would not propably go again, only ended up in there because it's 24/7.

Sandwiches were good; however, to much to eat at one sitting. Has to save half for later and then forgot to pick them up. Bit of a wast for us, next time we'll share one.

I was referring to The Famous Restaurant across from the Casino. The food is always tasty, occasionally the service is slow but always friendly.
