Possibly the best western omelet I've eaten. Opted for the homemade bread which was really good but a little pricey. Service was great, food was great. Definitely would eat here again.

Excellent breakfast menu. Ample servings. Restaurant needs remodeled, but no one notices because the food and service are so good. Try their homemade bread toast.

I have gone to McAteers since I was in college. That has been along time, I graduated from Fairmont State in 67. I hasn't changed a lick. My wife and I had breakfast there this past week and it good but nothing special and that is ok for the regulars. Average price for breakfast is about $6 and that usually... More

A popular place for FSU faculty to have breakfast, this well established eatery is across the street from the university and community college.

Big breakfast today. Had the meat lovers breakfast with hot coffee. Covered the majority of the plate, I was unable to finish it. Server was quick and the owner was checking on everyone. It is nice to be care for at this level. Excellent.

Definitely feels like a place where the locals eat. Nothing fancy but good tasting basic meals served by a friendly staff.

Love the small town feel of this little diner. The staff was super friendly and the food was delicious. Get there early on Sundays though as they are only open until 1pm, but definitely worth it!! Delicious!

If you like an old fashion diner with friendly service this is your place. The food is consistently good. Nothing too fancy but then again it's a diner. Your coffee cup will never be empty and the service will be superb! Make sure you have cash McAteer's doesn't accept credit cards.
