This restaurant has a great salad bar with two soups to choose from. The food comes out nice and hot and is very good. You can order anything from a burger to steak to seafood at a very reasonable price.

My wife and I frequent the restaurant and truly enjoy the senior citizens specials. The atmosphere is that of a family diner. But, who needs frills when friendly staff and great food at good prices is the mainstay. Best salad bar around and homemade soups makes for a great meal. If you want a fancy atmosphere and small portions, go... More

I visit a few times a year and normally the food is good. Nothing to rave about, but decent food for the prices. I like that the dinners come with soup and salad. My last visit was for breakfast. I ordered eggs Benedict, and the first one was good and when I cut into the other one it was not... More

If you are a visitor to PA you'll soon learn what the locals all know "PA diners are the best!" Although it's called a family restaurant it's really an oversized diner. You can tell by the shiny stainless steel exterior. Diners are famous for their huge menus and this place is no exception. For me to give any restaurant an... More

I had written a prior review giving it 4 stars. This time my wife and I stopped in for lunch. It was busy and very noisy with several big screen tvs going. The hostess seated us and after looking at the menu for several minutes I said to my wife "do you mind if we go someplace else." She said... More

The food I received was typical diner fare. French fries were soggy and I did not eat chili because it was so greasy. The service I received was very poor. My friend ordered right away because he had been there before, but the waitress forgot about taking my order. Came back 10 minutes later. After food came out I wanted... More
