I used to come here as a child with my dad. So, my husband and I decided to give it a try. The place was very dirty. Dead bugs all over the place. We still ordered food! The food was tasteless and basically from boxed or frozen packaging. Such a disappointment. I hope someone revitalizes it. The nostalgic design would... More

We usually stop here for breakfast when passing through. Always a good meal. Service is good. Can get in and out in a decent amount of time most visits

We were driving by and decided to give this place a try. What a treat! Old-fashioned milk shakes and home-made comfort food and desserts. You can see why this restaurant has been in business for 40 years. Quaint, great food and service. The menu brings back fond memories. Lots of locals, you know it's got to be good.

Stopped in for late breakfast combo plate... it was called 2-2-2 Riverview. Consisted of 2 pancakes, 2 sausage and eggs. I chose scrambled. Pancakes were large and fluffy, sausage was tasty and eggs were okay. No fancy presentation but filled the gut.

My husband and I have been frequenting Hi Hat for many years. It's changed hands in the last couple of years but the quality of the food has remained superb. We eat breakfast there every weekend and supper on Friday nights. Haven't had a bad meal there.

If the A1 Diner is too busy continue north a short distance. Good basic food and low prices. Breakfast is the best.

Just south of Augusta, this former drive-in makes delicious pancakes in a variety of flavors. I had the pecan/cranberry/apple ones. Their unique way of embedding the ingredients works very well. And you can specify real maple syrup! The only way to go!

This restaurant is wonderful- a great place to eat breakfast all day long or enjoy one of their many lunch specials. Everything is spectacular.

Had a well cooked breakfast, hash, tost eggs and bacon. It was decent but i dont think i have ever seen eggs so small. Eggs should be at least large eggs, difference is pennies but im sure the customers would appreciate it. I know i would.

Older sit down restaurant. Had an omelet, hash browns, coffee. Service was very good, took half of breakfast home for the next day. Good food, served relatively quickly. Wife had the breakfast sandwich, brought half home. Had not been there in a long time but will go back soon.
