We stopped at this diner simply because everytime we drove past the parking lot was full. Once inside we found the decor to be nothing special at all. We were seated towards the back of the restaurant and cheerfully greeted by the waitress. We ordered the Country Fried Chicken and the Crab Cake basket. The chicken came with a house... More

If you are ever in the area, you REALLY should give this place a try! I have been here half a dozen times over the last year at all different times of the day and evening and this place NEVER dissapoints! The food and service are absolutely outstanding!

Stopped in here on a whim while up in La Plata last weekend. Noticed right off the bat that there were many cars in the parking lot - good sign! Parked around back where there is additional parking. What better place for breakfast than a busy looking diner? I was by myself, but was seated at one of the booths.... More

In area for work and stopped in for the first time. Reminded me of an old time New Jersey dinette. Worn tables and chairs, utensils with a lot of mileage. But, that's a good thing because this place is busy. Had lunch and enjoyed a very good meatloaf sandwich. Crab soup was spot on too. I controlled myself and stayed... More

You could drive by this place a hundred times and never give it a thought. Unless the packed parking lot caught your attention... The food is high quality, the portions enormous and the service outstanding. No wonder the line extends out the door. Highly recommended for both breakfast and dinner meals. It's #1 for a reason.

Came in with 5 workmates for lunch and we all walked away slowly from eating so much great food. We all chose from the breakfast menu, I had the pork chop and egg and couldn't finish all the home fries. My buddies are some big fellows and can put away some food, but several of them left food on the... More

After a day of stress, and a lot of driving, Marie's comfort food hit the spot. Large portions at a good price. We especially liked the applesauce. We have driven by this restaurant for years as it is near the middle of a long trip that we make regularly. We are glad that we finally stopped. Right on 301. Our... More

Awesome food and service. Busy and flowing. Try the biscuits and gravy for breakfast, huge portion. Meatloaf was like moms.

If you like small business diners you will love this place. It's affordable, the food is great, and you get plenty of food. The first time I ate here I went for breakfast I have an omelette and fully loaded home fries. They come with a bunch of bacon on it cheese and they were awesome. The whole meal was... More
