For me reviews come down to three issues: the food, the staff and the condition of the restaurant. I used to frequent this diner as a young girl with my grandparents. Mam'ma & Bampi. My Mam'ma (grandmother) would take us there to meet up with...More

Great diner in a very accessible location. We stopped for breakfast. The menu had plenty of options. Not only was the food tasty, but it was served quickly! Friendly service...and they kept my coffee cup full, which is always a plus when having breakfast.

One mile off the highway. You know it’s real when the owner greets you. Chet ordered the Deluxe and I the Eggs Benedict. They added a little Spinach to “make it Florentine”. Clean and friendly.

We visited twice in 2 consecutive weekends while traveling from I-90, because we liked it so much. The crab stuffed haddock dinner special (excellent!) befitted a much more high end place. All our dinners were tasty. Wine and beer are available; large menu with a...More

Retro diner. Booths are small. Staff friendly. Prices reasonable. Lots of options, as you might expect. Utensils cheap—my fork bent. Food was disappointing. I had a prime rib special. The salad was fresh and tasty. The beef was very fatty, chewy, and without taste. Didn’t...More
