This place offers delicious food, super polite staff, and great outdoor seating. They offer a wide variety of breakfast dishes and a constantly changing special menu giving you plenty of options to chose from. The food portions are huge, but I never seem to have...More

Food was pretty tasty although I suspect extremely high in calories based on the abundance of sauces. Conversation was indeed difficult because of the loudness...not even sure if there was music playing, perhaps it was just everybody yelling to be heard????

Everyone enjoyed their meal. Was horribly ill for days after. Think it would be fine for those who choose to avoid gluten, but not those of us with a medical condition.

We went there for a Monday kids eat free for dinner. I wish it was Sun not Mon, but anyway, it was an enjoyable dinner experience with nice atmosphere and great service. The portion of the pasta dish was big and I was so satisfied!

Had a great lunch at the Diner and will definitely be visiting again. The prices are reasonable and the food is quality. I will say the portions are pretty big so make sure you are hungry when you visit.
