My husband introduced me to City Line Diner years ago when they first opened up! This location has been many different restaurants over my husband's lifetime and he has experienced most of them but this one has been especially dear to our hearts because we would have dinner with our Uncle Slim almost every Friday evening for YEARS! Just about... More

Menu is extensive with many lunch specials. I asked if the chicken salad had celery in it and the waitress assured me it did not. Unfortunately, the chicken salad lacked taste and did indeed have celery in it and the croissant wasn't exceptionally fresh. The cream of broccoli soup tasted stale, the consistency was somewhat lumpy and congealed. On the... More

Saturday morning breakfast at City Line Diner was delicious and reasonably priced. Our service was adequate though we had to get our own silverware off another table and our server a bit slow getting us all the beverages we had ordered. Otherwise, the food was good, hot and well prepared.

We used to dine at Colonial Park Diner. We were sad to see it closed, but happy to hear the food/menu are also located here. Consistent food. Great service. And it's clean. Will go again.

Dinner time service. 1 waitress for 8 tables. Chicken picatta was frozen chicken tenders poorly prepared. Other entrees were equally disappointing. Should have picked another destination.

To be fair, we DID eat here on Labor Day, but we called first and they indicated they were open. Parking lot was DESERTED when we pulled in, so we'd get best service ever, right? Well, the food actually came fairly fast, but soups didn't come out ahead (like usual) and after we were served, the waitress NEVER checked on... More

Staff were very friendly. Environment was pleasant. Food was good but felt omelette was shy of ingredients. However, the raspberry was great.

I was hoping for a great breakfast but it was just mediocre. Cheese in the omlette smelled a bit off and the hollandaise sauce on my companions Eggs Benedict separated. However, wait staff was very friendly. Perhaps the kitchen was having a bad day?
