Came into Linda's diner to get a good local meal. In small letters on the window there was no credit/debit cards. I went to get cash. We weren't greeted and the server when she came, left the order pad on the table. My wife wrote our order on the pad because she did not come back until I returned from... More

My husband and I wanted to try it out and I'm a large woman and they only had two tables and they were crammed in a corner where you had less room than the booths. We ended up leaving and not eating. They really need to rethink their dining room.

This is a tiny diner in Mathews that apparently does great business. There are so few choices in town, we understand why. We had breakfast and ordered eggs, bacon, grits and a biscuit. The grits were below average as were the biscuits. The eggs and bacon were average. The coffee had a strange aftertaste. Their lunch offerings may be better,... More

Food is just average. Service is good. Nice view of the water and always fun to watch people trying to put there boats in at the boat ramp right outside the front door.

Great breakfast, the best burgers in town (fresh hamburger, really fresh), specials (all inexpensive. staff funny, quick-witted and friendly. mostly local residents go here but ive been going for three years and get lots of banter to-and-fro. This is not luxury or high-end but it is enjoyable and, i would say, not to be missed

Great little place with good local food. Fair prices. Big portions cooked just right. Fried oysters were great. Scallops were cooked just right. Nice atmosphere.

Linda's is a diner and has diner food. The service is quick and efficient. Most people se to figure out what they really like and order it every time they go. My order is bacon cheeseburger, lettuce, tomato, mayo with fries. I mix up ketchup and Texas pete to make my dipping sauce for the fries. Yummy!!!

Great place to grab a quick hamburger, special of the day near the Mathews High School. Just a little off the beaten path but great if you want a little snack or lunch. Quick and friendly service.

My wife and I would periodically stop in for dinner when we were going to Mathews. We found that they served quality food at very affordable prices and we tried making it a regular stop. The best meals we both had were the hand breaded clam strips. Absolutely the best we had ever had. Sometime last year though, every time... More
