Jose and his servers were friendly and attentive. The food was tasty and plentiful, and the $$ is reasonable. A great repast for breakfast, lunch or dinner with substantial servings fit for the weary traveler.

We chose to go to the Garden Grill for a Mother's day Buffet (late in reviewing) and had made reservations in advance, we arrived before our scheduled time and had a party of four (4), when it cam time to be seated, we were seated in the Bar area at a small folding table, instead of the restaurant. Was very... More

We arrived later than expected and needed something other than fast food. We were greeted warmly, seated quickly and our order taken promptly from the brief but varied menu. What more can you ask for at that time of night (8:30 pm)? Food was decent as I had the Protein meal and my wife a burger. On out way out... More

Chose to have dinner at this place adjacent to the very fine Lamp Liter Motel, and came to regret it. They have a broad, inclusive menu, and I chose a pasta dish advertised as having a "creamy" sauce with seafood. A bad choice. The pasta was several degrees beyond al dente, the sauce must have came out of a can,... More

I ate here when staying nearby as it was one of few serving breakfast at 7 am. The whole place has a friendly vibe and there is an old-fashioned diner charm too. I was served quickly by a cheerful waitress and only ordered coffee and French toast. Both were very good - nice fresh coffee and nice, soft and tasty... More

Yes it's old fashioned and dated but we loved it ! Old style diner but absolutely immaculate, with terrific servers and extremely good value for money, nice to see a daily special which was baked chicken in a mushroom sauce with rice and sautéed vegetables and garlic toast for under $10 ! Beats fast food joints anytime in my book

Food is nothing to rave about but the prices are affordable. Me and my kids only ate here for breakfast. This dinner is conveniently located in the hotel. Me and my kids would walk from our hotel room and eat at this dinner for breakfast. This dinner has a 50s decor that takes you back in time.

We ate at this diner twice. Once was late upon checking in, and then again for breakfast. Both times the food was good and the staff was welcoming and friendly. Would recommend eating here.
