I wish I had asked her name because the girl who served us made the difference between an ok experience and one that made us return twice before flying home. If Peter is reading this, I am talking about the girl with the ring in...More

Loved this place for years - for me, the quintessential American diner. Everything you've never wanted if you were on a diet. Hadn't been back for quite a while. Still packed for brunch but what lousy service. One staff member so inept she'd have been...More

God coffee and everything you expect to have in an old fashioned diner. Good place to meet a friend or eat as a single.

Have eaten here now on two occasions, and will definitely come back when I'm in the area and looking for a place to eat. Pretty much your basic all-around restaurant with something for just about everybody. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner. Lots of menu variety.

Pretty typical diner food. We ate a dinner and a lunch here. Had pork chops for dinner and a nice sandwich for lunch. Wife liked ordering breakfast food at dinner time.

Since I can't speak for the restaurant, it's best to give them a call in case they have peak hours.
