I went with my family for lunch. I got stuffed French toast with strawberries. When it arrived, you could tell that the strawberries had either been frozen or had been sitting in juice for a long time. Worst of all, it was barely warm and...More

I've eaten here in the past, but never will again. Not only is the food now poor quality, but the owner is an absolute bully. I went in with a friend and ordered the "lox" benedict. When my food arrived it was not lox but...More

My wife had an excellent Cobb salad. Very large, and the chicken, which I tasted, was moist and tasty. I ordered scrambled eggs very soft and they came medium at best, which is my only complaint. I had a side of steamed broccoli that was...More

As far as diner food goes, this is pretty good. I've eaten three different meals there, the first was moussaka which wasn't great; breakfast there was a little better, but you can't really go wrong with an omelette. One other time i just had soup,...More

Was there while servicing my car across the street. Had a very nice burger. There are about 7 different burgers all at 9.95 each with fries. I read some posts about prices which were wrong. 9.95 for a good burger with different toppings is reasonable....More

This was one of our "go to" lunch spots for years until the prices sky rocketed for no real reason. Nearly $16 for a burger and fries?! Maybe it's due to new ownership? Not sure, but the quality of the food neither increased or worsened,...More

This diner is OK when you need to eat. I think it's over priced and food is nothing special. They do have a nice staff and food was hot.

Clean, friendly and serving good diner food. The menu is fairly extensive and nicely prepared. Their salads in particular (unusual for a diner) are served using quality vegetables and proteins of your choice. The menu choices range from your regular diner menu (breakfast, lunch, dinner)...More
