My friend and I stopped for lunch last week. She almost always has breakfast for lunch. I had the roast beef with mashed potatoes with bread. Mine came with a cup of soup. For being lunch time, it wasn't too busy. The service was good. A nice middle of the road break from fast food.

The food is tasty, with large portions. The omelets are very good for breakfast. All the staff are friendly. Busy place, but service is great.

This restaurant is right off of 12/18 and Route 51, north of the highway. I like to stop here for breakfast. The coffee is always hot and good. You will also find clean restrooms here.

Locally owned diner with friendly staff and great service. Menu offers many different breakfast and lunch choices. My favorite is the Corned Beef Hash, extra crispy! Also the Monte Cristo Sandwich is yummy!

Mom and pop style restaurant with awesome service... Food was excellent. ... everyone helping to accommodate guests is great to see in a restaurant instead of "I'll let your server know" attitude. Very clean also. A party of 16 walked in as we were finishing our breakfast and they rearranged their dining room to accommodate them. We were sorry to... More

Stopped for lunch & had a bowl of clam chowder & a meatloaf sandwich. Chowder was excellent - lots of clam & great flavor. Meatloaf was very good - certainly everything seemed homemade. I would look forward to another visit when I am in the area.

This is a nice little restraunt to eat breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The staff are always nice and the food is great. If you need some work done on your car its just a shot walk down the road from Broadway Tire.
