We visited this diner Tuesday, June 19th 2018. What a find! It’s a little jewel that still believes in good old fashioned home cooking! We stayed next door and the staff recommended it. We were a little apprehensive but it certainly disappeared. We were greeted...More

The food is outstanding and the service great. I had the turkey dinner and you need to be hungry because it’s a lot of food.

Jen was wonderful! Got the white fish, mash potatoes, and corn. Everything was perfectly seasoned. My daughter got a double vanilla milkshake, which was free because our meal took a while arriving to the table. Overall great place to eat.

We ate here nearly everyday, the food is very good, although it takes a while to get it. The staff is friendly. The staff all sit at a table and talk loudly though. When they aren’t waiting on customers.

Ex employee has a blowout with manager. Plenty of N bombs and threats. The manager didn't bother to come around to the customers. Everything just went on as normal. Food was average at best.

A typical menu and nice amount of food, but service was slow. The TVs were also nice, since it was March madness. Very close to the Clarion Hotel and Red Roof.

This establishment was very consistent in the food quality and service. I have been coming here many years as I am an Airport employee. I believe there has been a management change. The staff is nice,however the service is not typical of a diner where...More
