Have visited this establishment on the way to the beach for the last 20+ years. Started as a tiny diner, ultimately moving to a brand new significantly larger establishment. Unfortunately bigger is not always better and it seems like the quality has gone down hill....More

This diner is hard to get into from route 13. It could have used a once over by cleaning crew, with visible fingerprints on mirrors, dust, etc. The food was okay, but nothing to rave about.
