We had a nice lunch at this diner. The hamburgers and fries really hit the spot. Some of us got our food quickly and others took a little longer. The others at our table enjoyed what they had ordered too.

I had turkey..it was very dry...I noticed that the seafood prices are very high. You can go to a good restaurant and pay these prices. Tablecloths and cloth napkin type restaurants. I like the "old" owners menu.

There senior menu is an excellent value. Quality food, at a reasonable price, and quite plentiful. Very friendly atmosphere. Lunch time can be packed but there is very little wait time.
