The diner is outdated and has your typical diner food. However, they have good portions, great bread and home fries. If you are in the area and want a cheap diner, it is a good place.

The Family Tree, a large pair of rooms featuring a, well, tree in the centre, is crammed with customers on any weekend morning, drawn by classic diner breakfast fare at appealing prices. Service is first-rate and the kitchen turns out outstanding egg dishes and traditional items. Unexpected bonuses include mimosas available after 8 am, and good coffee. There are only... More

I come to this restaurant many times when I am in Buffalo as it is my mother's favorite. She really enjoys the vegatable lasanga. I choose something on the menu depending on my mood. This evening it was the chicken wings and rice. As always, there are no surprises but only what I expected. The service is always very good.... More

Huge restaurant. I'm sure the parking lot looks stuffed to the hilt after church lets out, and that might scare you away but it's plenty big on the inside. Spiffy service even when busy. OK range of items, but I doubt you'll leave feeling anything less than stuffed. Good quality and value. Would definitely return.

Our waitress was just wonderful...went above and beyond in taking care of us. We all ordered chicken souvlaki and we split a side of onion rings. The onion rings were good, nice and crispy, great flavor. The souvlaki was so so. Not a lot of chicken, tons of lettuce, not much feta cheese. Very large restaurant, lots of seating and... More

Saturday morning @ 9:00am was a planned time for our friends to meet at our preferred venue Family Tree. Even though it was a Saturday morning which is a big breakfast morning out for many, this is never a problem as the Family Tree can accommodate so many people at one time and as expected parking was no problem. The... More

Chef was willing to pan fry liver, bacon and onions due to my allergy to potatoes. Really good. Veggies al dente though I prefer softer. Soup-lemon chicken - warm tasty and best of all not salty! Service was very good, pleasant, attentive and friendly. We eat here at least once or twice a month. Reasonable prices! They have the very... More
