It's hasn't been the Hamlin Diner for 11 years. Thanks for the feedback. We will keep trying to do better and focus on the customers that support us year round and like our sign and love the salad bar.

I went to Shelly's once and ordered something very simple- chicken parm and the salad bar. My chicken was over cooked, gamey and inedible. The salad bar offered nothing but brown lettuce. Shelly's needs to step up their game...
