This is one of the city's most vibrant and friendly restaurants. The food is fantastic coupled with fast and friendly service. Sit back and relax while you dine - no hurry. Alone? Sit at the counter where there is conversation and smiles enough for all....More

We've finally taken City Diner off our list of diner options. The experience gets more odd each visit. It was at the pinnacle for many years and for some reason, is a shell of its former self. The service is just barely fine. The food...More

The City Diner was awesome! The staff were all so kind and attentive. The host was smiling when we entered the door and made us feel so welcome. The food was awesome as well.

This used to be my go-to place for diner food in town, but it's gone to hell in a hand basket. The food hasn't changed much under the new management; it's regular American diner food, pretty unremarkable. If Madonna and Rosanna Arquette made a movie...More
