Food, service, parking is very good. Servers are very friendly and on a first name basis with most customers. I visit at least once a week to start my day in a welcoming atmosphere.

During our visit to the Island we stopped at Dagwood's twice of lunch & on both occasions the food was delicious with generous portions & very good coffee. The decor is pleasant (diner style) and the prices reasonable for the island.

My grand parents used to take me here when I stayed with them on the island 30 years ago. I took my wife when I visited and I hope to take my grand kids when they get old enough for solid food.

We knew that this place has been here for years and always seems busy, so we dropped in for lunch. There is no atmosphere whatsoever - it's a noisy concrete room with an unwelcoming entryway. We had the specials - my "crispy chicken burger" was made with disappointing frozen chicken(less) nuggets and some of my friend's perogies were tasty thanks... More
