We needed up here on a Monday for lunch. The place doesn't look like much...not on the outside or the inside. The waitresses seemed to be running around like chickens with their heads cut off....but they were friendly. When we ordered we were met with 'sorry we are out of that'....not once but twice! I found that a little odd... More

We stopped by on a Sunday afternoon during a trip to Front Royal. The service was horrific, we had to remind our server about our salads and soup. The steak was tough, like it was frozen. The scallops were over cooked. The soup and salad cake after our meal. When checking out the hostess said oh well it happens every... More

I was visiting Front Royal recently with my girlfriends for a weekend away. We spotted the Diner and thought we would try it for breakfast. We ended up eating there both days and making sure we had Kimberly on our 2nd day as our waitress! OMG, a great breakfast, we could not get over the cheap price and Kimberly...fantastic. The...

Visited the diner on a couple of ocasions over the month. I had hot dogs, what a disillusionment this was. A hot dog is the way to judge any diner. I ate it, but it as a poor substitute for a real hotdog. Second visit was for breakfast, it was fair at best. Pancakes were heavy and the eggs were... More

We've eaten at the FR Diner about 6 or 8 times. Last night was the most recent. I love this little place. More than generous portions, very tasty, and decent prices. The only bad thing I have to say about it is that lately their fries have been cold so last night I asked to substitute a baked potato. The... More

My granddaughter and I just happened to be going by the restaurant and at the last minute decided to stop for breakfast. It is a nice restaurant and the food was very good. The waitress we had was very good. We received our food and the next time we looked around the restaurant was filling up. When we left people... More

We pulled up to this Diner, and had nearly left, as the outside looks like an old Motor Inn, but the inside has been completely redone and decorated, very clean and the food is great. Generous portions and good home cooked food.

A wonderful diner to have breakfast (all day), lunch, dinner, dessert or just tea/coffee! The service was fast and friendly! The menu is full of excellent home-made food! Great place for a family gathering! My friend ordered an open faced roast pork sandwich with gravy over fries, fruit salad, and a house salad. When brought to the table, the plate... More

Friendly staff make you feel at home. These are experienced waitresses who can answer your questions, are efficient, and friendly. The food is good old 'Murican. I've eaten their for breakfast and lunch. I order the patty sausage as a test to judge attention to detail. They appeared to use a local sausage, not too spicy, but well seasoned. The... More
