We had been here previously and loved it, so when we came back to town we thought we'd like to try it again. We were not disappointed. Their meatloaf is homemade and excellent., and came with two sides and a fresh, crisp garden salad. Their veggie omelet was chock full of onion, tomato, pepper, etc. and was delicious. The waitress... More

This is your typical diner and they strive at being just that The food is diner quality and I mean that in a good way. It just has that greasy spoon flavor that makes diners attractive to eat at. Another unique and attractive feature is it has a large beer selection. I often stay across the street at the hotel.... More

When it comes to service with a smile, Brittany gets a 10+!!! That, on top of the Liver & Onions and French Fries and the Jack Daniels Chicken being out of this world, we will return when in area! The Salad was as fresh as you could possibly ask for. And huge servings! The warm Apple Pie, with vanilla ice... More

Someone commented a week ago about the roast beef being tough and the food would be most appealing to truck drivers. I have to laugh on that comment.No, truck drivers normally find the best off route places to eat at $ for $. Just because the diner is located at a location full of trucks doesn't mean every driver is... More

We were going south on Rt. 81 and wanted to stop to eat. Although I am not a fan of fast food the exist sign only listed all the usual. What a surprise when we're about to pull in and I spotted The Diner. We were thrilled. There was a little chill to the air so my husband ordered the... More

I did not find anything to be above average other than the service. The food was okay but the roast beef was dry and chewy. It did not seem to be fresh cooked. I feel it is more appealing to truckers. The pricing is fair and affordable.

This 50's style diner is clean, spacious, and well lit. The menu has just about anything you might want. They even have a large refrigerator section with beer to go. We decided to have the hot turkey sandwiches and gravy which came on 2 slices of the bread or roll of your choice with two sides. It was a large... More

I went for dinner and the wait staff were very polite and helpful. The food is really good and it's not just diner food they do have a dinner menu and the portions are good size. I was very pleased over all.

Very good food for the price located within the Pilot truckstop parking. 50 style and music. They serve beer, service is not the fastest since only two waitresses working by the way there looking to hire ... 1951 - gallon of gas cost 19cents 1954 - TV dinners were introduced ... info from menu.
