Lots of choices for breakfast. They make a good corned beef hash. Service is good. Place is fairly small. Service was fine. Not sure how they are for lunch, but very good for breakfast.

Had the eggs, toast and yogurt w/granola, along with fresh squeezed oj. Others had the corned beef hash, and french toast. Everyone was really pleased. Quite filling. Big chunks of corned beef. The granola w/yogurt and honey and fruit was lovely with the scrambled eggs and toast. Service was prompt and friendly.

Great place to meet friends for breakfast. Very busy on weekends so call ahead to find wait times and put your name on the wait list. Very friendly staff and very accommodating when seating our group of 8. Avacado, pear and goat cheese omelet was delicious as was everything else.

The blueberry,mascarpone pancakes with pecans were outrageous! They tasted like a cheesecake pancake dessert! The coffee was also very good. I would post a picture of the pancakes but my plate is empty! Next time.

A great spot to meet friends or take the family for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They are very accommodating to kids. Also accommodating to various party sizes. A great kids menu. Excellent BLT with avocado. Their homemade chips are delish.

I went with my granddaughters (10 & 12) for a late lunch. It was quiet and they put us at a 3 top at the window which was a bit crowded for the girls and we moved to the 4 top next to us. The service was a bit slow throughout but the food was terrific. One girl got a... More

Went here early for breakfast to meet a friend. No line when I got there at 7 am on Sunday. Staff is friendly. I got a Connie with eggs and pancakes. Both were great. I liked the potatoes were well done. Lots of options, I look forward to trying others.

Four of us went to lunch and all were happy. This wasn't our first time at the Rox Diner, but it was - by far - the most successful. The 10 year olds had plain pancakes with a side of fries; we won't talk about that. My husband had a very nice Caesar salad. I hit the jackpot with the... More
