I'm not giving Chip's a 1-star rating because of some terrible incident or disgusting conduct-the food here simply isn't very good at all in my opinion. I got fish and chips, and while the breaded cod was honestly pretty solid, the fries were subpar and...More

Very inviting, varied menu, and you feel like you've stepped back in time yet the food is not like the 50's. Very creative breakfast choices, I had a burger and it was as tasty as you would imagine burgers were in a diner in the...More

We wanted your classic diner so decided to give this a try for dinner. Place was pretty empty, but staff was friendly and service was good. The food was okay- I suppose what one would expect for a diner!

Chip's Diner is a good place for a casual breakfast or lunch. Food is good and well priced. The milkshakes are amongst the best we've had. Service is quick and friendly. The interior is in need of a refresh, the booths need repairing and maybe...More

This is a really nice little restaurant that could easily be missed if you aren't looking for it. The food is great, though, and portions are huge! We went for breakfast and between my husband, myself, and my 17 month old we could've shared the...More
