I regularly stop here for breakfast or lunch for a business meeting with a colleague. It doesn't matter what I get it is always good. This time I had a tuna salad sandwich with fries and it came with a cup of soup. Also the service is always great.

I went here with my husband for lunch while visiting Dover. I had a chicken and bacon sandwich with a pickle, coleslaw, and french fries. The coleslaw had too much mayo and the fries were overcooked. The bathroom was dirty with the trash overflowing. Prices were good and the menu had a lot of variety. Service was so-so.

we have been there a few times for breakfast - it is a local place with good staff and mediocre food at a reasonable price. Two cash registers - one for cash - one fro credit - rather unusual

The place looks like and old time diner, but is very clean, well kept and inviting. I'm surprised their ranking is so low! The food is awesome, with huge serving portions. At our table we had 2 burger plates, a sub and s gyro. Everyone raved about their food and everything was cooked to perfection. We had no room for... More

Ate there last Saturday evening. After regular dinner hours but not late. Service was good but slow. Food was a little questionable. Chicken gyro was old to the point where the chicken that was cut from the edge of the meat was tough and crusty. Sides were okay and meatloaf was okay. Price was a little stiff for a diner... More

I wasn't disappointed at all. A throwback to an earlier time with solid, traditional diner food. Good service, good food, and don't forget to leave room for dessert...those traditional diner pies are great...I had the apple a la mode...yum.

There is nothing like a diner......it always takes us back to our past. We stopped here for lunch during a recent visit to Dover and once you step past their door, you are in for a good diner experience. The food was what we expected.......good, but not over the top. I enjoyed my Toasted Cheese Sandwich with Tomato, but my... More

We stopped in here for a family breakfast/brunch. We are from out of town and followed the reviews on trip advisor however we were very disappointed with our experience. From the moment we opened the door it smelled like poo (I am not kidding) the food had no flavor, and the waitress did not want to tell us what "scrapple"... More

Typical diner fare with a menu that offers lots of variety. Service was friendly but a bit spotty on a quiet weekday afternoon. The gyros we had were tasty but the serving was smaller than we would have expected for the price.

On the way to the beach and looking for breakfast. I stopped here. No chance to read any reviews, I was just looking for a non-chain restaurant and saw this 50s diner and pulled into the parking lot. Waitress was friendly and got my food out to me quickly. I liked the buttermilk pancakes. The poached eggs were hard- didn't... More
