Throwback diner with a 50s feel. All the traditional diner foods are there, but what sets this place apart is the home baked pies and the daily gourmet seafood and other specials. I highly recommend the turtle soup. Featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.

Went to this place cause it popped up on my places to visit in northern Indiana. The food was extremely good, the wait staff was great, and they make an awesome milkshake.

As a Goshen local I can say that this is one place I always recommend to out-of-towners, if you will. I do always make sure that they aren't picky though. The food is good, fresh, but the service is something to work on. Most of the waitresses are younger/high school age which seems to make for more chit chat and... More

They had a lot of fried and greesy food but it was really REALLY good. The dinner was a bit dark and dated. If you sit at the counter you can watch your food being made

Heard about this place from a friend and was excited to try it out!! The parking was awful, but for good food, I wouldn't care. The restaurant was cute and it clean. I had the Philly cheesesteak & there wasn't hardly any cheese on it - it was dry. The french fries were bland & cold. Hubby had pasta &... More

The service was top notch! The diner was quaint and the food was superb. The oysters were fresh. The onion rings we're delicious! The fries were amazing! The desserts and fresh cherry coke were something that I don't get every day!

I ordered the philly cheese steak, since it was my first time, Ash my waitress, suggested this sandwich for $6.85. She suggested curly fries so I made it a basket for an additional $1.75. The slaw was served in a small plastic cup and was a bit tart. The curly fries were a little under cooked but hot and tasty.... More

I've been here a few times. I like the atmosphere, the food and they have great customer service. I usually have one of their burgers. But my particular favorite is when they serve Bangers and Mash. The sausage is just spicy enough to have great flavor and the potatoes are spot on.
