Great banter between and with the servers. Fast service coupled with huge portions made for a wonderful brunch. Attentive staff made sure the coffee cup and water glass was never empty. Background oldies music made the experience even better.

We love the Uptown as they cook up the best veggie browns, breakfast, meatloaf sandwich and famous cream of tomato soup. It is a friendly home town place with all home-style cooking, comfortable diner environment and great music from the 50's. Don't miss their thick...More

Coffee cup is never empty and the food is what I remember when I was a kid. The service is with a smile and I have never had to wait for a table.
