I have eaten there several times. I usually have their fish and chips with home cut fries. They rank very high in my opinion. The staff is always friendly and service is excellent.

This place offers home cooked style along with fried if you wish. The great thing about this diner is that it offers smaller portions for most choices if you aren't a big eater. Service is very quick.
