Food is good, inexpensive, good service, and open for three meals a day. Tables are close together, and it can get noisy, but we ate there every meal.

Has a neighborhood feel. Nice and cool on a hot day. Great booths and great wait-staff. Unfortunately our lunch was surprisingly mediocre. My spouse and I split overcooked hush puppies and I had a tasteless hamburger. I checked the other reviews so I suspect my experience was just early season shakeout.

The food, service and price can't be beat. I've been here for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I've ate eggs, bacon, burgers, fish, shrimp and of course fries. The point is everything is good at this nice clean diner..

The food came out promptly, and was delicious. Staff was attentive & friendly - even when the photos attacked us by falling off the wall! lol If I had the time, I would sit there longer and just enjoy the coffee.

We had cheeseburgers with chili on them and chicken sandwiches and French fries, hushpuppies and waffle sweet potatoes fries! Their green bean side had ham in it! Very tasty indeed! Service is fast, friendly and attentive. The diner is clean... More

What a find! Moved here full time in January, tried this place on a Friday and had the daily special which is meatloaf. OMG, we go back every Friday for sure. Daily specials 5 days a week. Can't beat it . 2 sides for $9.95 . Two can have a GREAT meal for under $25.00. The staff is the best.... More

Hubby had the veggie omelet and I had the egg plate, with nice rye toast, sausage patties and creamy grits. The home fries were awesome, crispy but not greasy, everything was prepared perfectly. Coffee's good, too! Service was fast, efficient and friendly! Would definitely dine here again!
