This is a very unique restaurant, at least it was for me as I've not eaten at a diner style restaurant before. This one has age and character, but has clearly been well cared for. The food was excellent, and the service was good as well. I left trying to come up with an excuse to come back for breakfast... More

If you're looking for great, inexpensive diner food, this is it! This your more-than-typical roadside, trailer diner. This is real! Friendly customer service, quick delivery of food and great atmosphere. They even sell T-shirts! Highly recommend this to everyone.

This is a great diner - has the diner look and feel. Food is extremely reasonably priced. Maryland crab soup was perfect and with breakfast all day, omelet, hash browns, toast etc were all excellent, with friendly waitresses. Also there's usual fare - meatloaf, burgers, etc. --big menu. Love this place!

Very friendly, helpful staff. This is a humble place, the food is cheap and basic. What an interesting place the Delmarva peninsula is! Beautiful farm country.

I had the ham steak dinner with 2 sides and rolls, and my wife had a bowl of home-made chickedn noodle soup and a salad. Both were delicious and filling.... More

This is a local diner/dive, so those reviews thinking this was Ruth's Chris or the like need to understand that. That being said, my wife and I stopped for lunch on our way north. We found it to be a friendly, clean and interesting place for lunch (now it is a bit dated but isn't that the charm of a... More

When we saw the sign for an old timey diner, we decided to try this in lieu of a seafood restaurant. Once we saw the number of locals there, we assumed it would be good. It is really a diner with a row of booths across the front and a row of counter seats. Looked cool from the outside. The... More
