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.

As a long-time vegetarian, I've eaten here several times and I've had a different meal every time. The menu selection for vegetarians is great, and all of the meals I've had have been excellent!
