I eat here very often - at least once a month, and I've never been disappointed. The only problem I have is deciding what to order - their traditional Mine dishes are all calling my name! In the summer, most of the produce is from...More

Had two tuna salads. Salads were good but the house dressing was very bland. Fish cake was good. Fries were hot and crispy

Generous Breakfast at Reasonable Prices we had eggs, sausage, bacon, hash and blueberry pancakes, which were absolutely huge! Got a table right away which seemed like a miracle. Lots of people come here and it's obvious why, would return for the portions and reasonable prices.

Food is delicious and large portions this time we enjoyed the fried clams, chicken tenders and roast turkey dinner. Dessert was to die for - we'd recommend the chocolate cream pie and apple crisp! Look forward to this diner every year.....worth the wait!

Cute little old town diner that caught our eye from its famous appearance on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Food was very good and service was quick! A great pit stop for lunch or dinner! Try the Triple D, it's what was served on the show!...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.
