The best "like Grandma made" breakfast spot. Highly recommend the caramel rolls but pretty much everything is amazing!

Had family come to town and was hoping to take them to a nice lunch. I talked up how great the food was and was sadly disappointed and embarrassed. Service was mediocre.

We went out for supper with Grandpa. I like to go places our company can't go in their home towns. We thought we would try Deaner's Diner. The kids weren't excited at first. We all found something to eat. And of course, we had to have pie/dessert at the end. We rolled our way out the door and ate too... More

Thank you so much for dining at Deaner's and giving us a great review. We really do appreciate it. I am sorry to hear that you were unable to get the fish special that we featured, as it was a very popular choice for many. We hope to see you again soon. Dean and Della More

Good old fashioned cooking. From biscuits and gravy to Apple pie and everything in between. Friendly staff. Tom Hanks an his family ate here. Off the main drag, but only by a block.

Wow...if you didn't know where this place was you would miss it....but GREAT food, and FAST service.....very impressed and we will be back. Lunch specials were great tasting, cabbage soup, chili, meat loaf, clam svtrips....they were all tasty and came with homemade tasting mashed potatoes and corn.....serving sizes were very ample. The cost of each meal was a great value... More

We were warmly greeted at this restaurant that appears to be family owned. The food was good, a nice variety of diner style food. Our waitress was warm and friendly as well as efficient. Prices reasonable. We would return there next time we pass through West Fargo.

It's a good thing this restaurant reopened with new owners and a new name. We need to keep this restaurant alive because they have such good homemade pies and pastries and other food that tastes as good or better than if you had cooked it yourself. It's a friendly place that's always busy, so come with your appetite and enjoy... More

TNT Diner has changed hands, the new name is Deaner's Diner. The great help takes care of service with a smile. Bringing out the timeless diner fare at affordable prices. I would suggest showing up early for the rush hours as the place will be full of happy people enjoying Deaner's Diner.

Nothing fancy but everything we had was great. The roast turkey was delicious and the pies looked great. The waiter was very friendly.
