Quaint little diner. Favorite place to eat in Sidney. Known for their pies, tenderloin and soups. Step back in time, must visit when in town.

I've eaten a full meal here in the past when we lived here, but always make sure to stop for pie when we are in the area. It's a nice little diner in downtown and always worth a stop if you like pie at all!

Found this diner to be very enjoyable. The decor was something right out of Happy Days. The food was tasty and the prices very reasonable. A nice change up from fast food restaurants.

Bought a whole strawberry pie to take home. Bland, except for the faint onion ring taste that comes from sitting out too long in close proximity. Tasteless glaze like a bad agar. Crust was unappealing. Way overpriced for what looked like school cafeteria food from...More
