The oatmeal was served nice and hot with light brown sugar on the side. Cream also on the side. De caf coffee was freshly brewed and refilled without our asking the server. The AC was not on. Windows open and overhead fans turning. We were not concerned as it was still mid morning in a day where the temps were... More

Traveling on the New York State Thruway or NY Rte. 5 & 20 in the Rochester area, don't miss Magee's Country Diner in Waterloo, NY. We try to time our trips across the state so we're passing by at a mealtime. The restaurant is decorated in a 'country' theme, with a heavy emphasis on cows. If you're not a vegetarian,... More

Nothing is more unprofessional than walking into an extremely crowded restaurant and witnessing the hostess complain about one of the servers to another server. It seemed like we were witnessing a high school cat fight. We waited in a line for about 15 minutes to be seated. When we got to the front of the line, the hostess took down... More

We were seated right away and our server came and took our drink order. We both ordered the hot meatloaf sandwich. Only complaint we had was the SODIUM -Way too much! however, we say that pretty much at any restaurant. The portions are large and prices are reasonable. I read a review that they serve breakfast all day. I, however,... More

Magee Diner has been a major staple in the town of Tyre for many years and is a local favorite! They have a vast menu and their food is exceptional! Their haddock dinner is amazing! Their atmosphere is a real country setting, with a cute cow motif. Find this diamond in the rough down the road from the newly opened... More

My 2 sons and I after leaving del Lago decided to stop for a bit of food. We were seated right away at a very small table. Server came and took our drink order. We observed very large portions of food coming out of the kitchen. The server took our order and that's when everything went to hell. We watched... More

We stopped before going to a show at Del Lago, and glad we did. The service was excellent, and the food great. All the diner favorites, plus prime rib that looked great even though we didn't have it. We will definitely be back next time going to Del Lago.
