It was worth the 20 minute wait for our dinner. Our waitress was so nice and even though they were super busy ,we did not feel rushed. The lobster pie was fantastic! Wish I had room for dessert!

Very popular diner with many people coming, but so efficient that no long wait time. Menu was extensive and daily specials are really great. I had the salmon pot pie---loaded with salmon and just enough potato to hold it together! Highly recommend the Diner.

Although the food is good, it is still diner food. My family loves the corn muffins and we always buy the mix at the gift shop next door. The red flannel hash is amazing, though only served on Saturday mornings. If you go around mealtime...More

I don't think that they use boxed eggs. I think that many restaurants cannot make good scrambled eggs, because they make them on the grill and scrambled eggs need to be made in a frying pan to turn out right.
