Wonderful recently redecorated diner that looks more like a restaurant than a diner. Greek family owned & operated for many years serving very good food. Excellent service & a sometime difficult parking lot.

Everything we ate was delicious. Service was very attentive. We had such a good time we came back the following night with another couple. We will... More

Great old fashion diner. Great burgers, crispy fries. Spicy Bloody Mary goes well with anything you order.

Too many good diners around, keep going. Food is sub par and the last wait staff was rude and impatient.

The service was great and the food was served hot. It is a busy diner and everything was served timely. The portions are nice and the food was good. Just missing the Dijon mustard for my pinini. They only had regular mustard.

Our family of six went to the diner for dinner. We were seated right away and the service was excellent. All of our meals were very good and the portions were quite large.

We enjoyed a great breakfast ranging from two eggs to pancakes and french toast. Service was great as well as the food and the portions. Would not hesitate to return to try other food options.

Be prepared, dinner prices started at $17.99. We settled on soup and salad for $9.99 which was good but not as substantial a meal as we had hoped for. What ever happened to 'DINER' prices?

Thank Giggy
