We've driven past OK Diner so many times and always said one day we'd try it. Saturday, on the way to Jump 360 we decided to stop in. Shouldn't have bothered. The staff were miserable & about as helpful as a chocolate teacup. We ordered...More

I wasn't expecting much, but I fancied a change from the usual service station offerings on my frequent A19 trips. The service was fantastic, the waitresses were friendly and took my order quickly- something which I appreciate- and the food arrived quickly. The food isn't...More

We took the grandchildren for our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised as the club sandwhiches were surprisingly good and reasonably priced. The service was good, but the music was a little loud for my taste. Just had to try one of their sundaes...More

The Ok Diner is a fun setting for burgers, hotdogs and shakes - all surprisingly good and well priced. The service was fine and the food arrived swiftly but it would have been better if she’d had a bit more enthusiasm in her delivery.
