I used to have to visit family in Carlisle Pa and I would always have to drop in to the Carlisle Diner for breakfast to get some scrapple. Their breakfast is delicious and in my opinion this establishment is underrated.

My wife and I loved this place. Near the college football field. Great parking in the rear. The menu is good. The senior specials are great. The entree includes soup/salad and dessert. We brought half of our meals home with us.

French Onion Soup is to DIE For. One of the best places to get it. Service was ok, but the food made up for it,

Average diner. Typical diner food. Prices are good. But place is rather small. There are better places in Carlisle to have breakfast.

Typically, I don't rate diners because they are what they are. This was my 1st visit here for breakfast. In this case I felt the need! Poached eggs without any runny yolks is usually an indication they were left in the water too long. These you could have used them as egg salad. The corn beef hash was so over... More

This establishment used to be this local's family go-to Sunday morning breakfast place. No more. The last few months have seen a steady decline in food and service. Today was the past straw; found hair in our food, when we alerted the hostess, we were not offered any compensation; no replacement, no discount....nothing. Lots of better places to eat...just stay... More
