This place has is a great option for breakfast. Having served the area for a long time, they offer a great selection of breakfast options that are homestyle and traditional.

Super disappointed in an overpriced tuna on plain white bread. The sides were stale tortilla chips and two pickles. Chocolate milk shake wasn't even good. Disappointing. Asked about fresh desserts only pumpkin pie.

Nice location downtown and clean. A nice diner that gets the food right. I enjoyed my hot meat loaf sandwich with potatoes and gravy (for 8.25) and my friend was impressed by his two huge blueberry pancakes. open 7 days a week form 6 am to 2 pm

Convenient location, tasty food all cooked perfectly to order, damn fine coffee, friendly service, clean bathrooms, and good prices. Will definitely eat there again when I am in Oil City. Also, the miniature car/vehicle display on the walls is interesting for kids & collectors.

A great local restaurant for breakfast and lunch… I have been going to this restaurant for 30 years and find it to have a friendly staff and quality food… This business is operated/owned by a local gentleman named Jim... he does a good job in providing quality food at a reasonable price!....

This small town restaurant has served many generations in Oil City. It is known as a meating place for small groups of friends, and even had the reputation as a teen hang out in the 1960's and 1070's. The very clean and well decorated with model cars. Their breakfast menu is pretty complete with waffles, pancakes, breakfast meats, and etc.... More

Only open in the mornings and for the lunch crowd. Food is decent and the wait staff very nice. This restaurant has been around since my mom was a girl and she is now in her mid 80s.

We had breakfast here with many of the people that attended my son's wedding the day that many left Oil City. The food was very good as was the staff.
