Our waitress rushed us and bothered us three times while still looking at our menu's as she wanted us to choose quickly. No one likes to be rushed when they eat or they would be at a fast food place or a drive through. When the issue was brought up to the manager he just swept it under the rug... More

I drive into Flint to come here to get the chicken dumpling soup and have also tried so many other of their food, such as salads, burger and fries, shakes, fish and chips and every time I come it is a great meal!

One of the things I consider when I stop at a restaurant is are they consistent in there food preparation, in that if I liked something the last time I was there, I should be able to order it again and find it to be equally as good on this visit. Westside Diner never lets me down, I appreciate the... More

I went her when I was very young. I would always get a grilled cheese sandwich. I recently visited and everything is the same and taste even better!

You never wait for service more than a minute, waitresses continually warm up coffees, food is hot and well prepared, prices are from the 50's along with their music. Best diner I've gone to coast to coast.

My husband and my favorite restaurant. We only wish it was closer! The food is terrific. We usually get the hamburger and fries, with a malted shake. The best burger we have ever had. It is set up like a 60's restaurant with decor and music. We highly recommend to anyone.

Cute and quaint. 50's all over again. The service was great and served with smiles. The breakfast was superb. Homemade foods, real ham cut from the bone, eggs cooked prefect, flapjacks were golden and tasty. Everyone else enjoyed there choices and the prices were right for a mom and pop diner. Good portions also. I will go back.

West Side Diner is a good choice for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It is small, needs updating, but serves up some real good food. There is absolutely nothing fancy here, so wait until your second date before taking your significant other here for that special occasion.

This is convenient to most of Flint. We needed an affordable place after visiting the Flint Institute of Art and did not want to blow a wad of money. We'd been here before when using Bishop Airport. The decor is '50's diner. The menu is basic and varied. My wife had a fish sandwich- wished she'd had the dinner instead.... More

This is a local favorite for good food, and good service. I try to get there at least once when I'm back in Flint. The 1950's theme is borne out with the Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, and "I Love Lucy" pictures that cover all the walls.i would rate this place very good for food and service, but they really neat to...
