We drive down from Fenwick for breakfast every now and then and it's worth it. Breakfast is always great. Service is spot on and the price is right. It's a nice diner experience with awesome choices. I recommend stopping by!!

It's Spring Break, and our kids (10 and 13) wanted to try the diner. It was great! It's a little place, but everything was just right. Good food. Great service. Loved the fried French toast! Not too expensive.

Awesome for breakfast ( and they have lunch, too) Super food, friendly & prompt service, plenty on the menu to choose from. The diner was cheerful & clean, plenty busy, but the waitresses do a great job. Maura has served us twice & was outstanding!

Food is great. However, in the summer or on weekends this place gets packed and you may have to wait awhile for a table. But worth the wait. They only serve breakfast and lunch. The food has always been good. But they are always busy. Try the Pipeline if you think you can handle it. I don't even try.....lol

Good food. Not great service. Never came back to refill coffee. Large portions and relaxed atmosphere but service is a large part of any dining experience. We still over tipped in hopes it was just a mistake.

It's tiny. Perfect location to stop for food en route to Assateague Island. Food is excellent, and the portions enormous. Try the "Pipeline", a five pound log of eggs, potatoes, onions, sausage, cheese, and gravy. Only $10.50 too. My friend loved his biscuits and gravy. Really surprised they haven't been on TV yet. Definitely get a locals vibe, but service... More

While staying Ocean City MD and wanting to stop for breakfast on our way to Assateague Island to go birding, our hostess at the Fagers Island Hotel said this is the place you want to go. We would have drove right by it. The quirky little diner is GREAT. Staff is friendly and attentive. The regulars sat at the counter.... More
