A very good place to eat at all hours!! Meatloaf is excellent as is the Greek Omlette and Pancakes! Peanut butter cookies are awesome! Looking forward to trying the Biscuts and Gravy next!

Unfortunately Orlando Neil's was closed the night we stayed, however we were not disappointed with the diner. The rubber sandwich is huge, for me and the burger wrap was a lighter meal only cooked a little longer than the medium rare that it should have been. Didn't get to try a cookie, but they were homemade and huge at only... More

Clients were even welcoming to each other and I had a large portion of a cob salad which I did not expect and my husband had a soup which was unbelievable so filling with a grilled cheese. Very good and reasonable price.

There aren't a lot of restaurants in the area. We chose the Diner because they usually have a lot of choices. We always have a difficult time eating out on the road because we don't eat meat. The food is just ok. Our server was pleasant and attentive.

We had been here previously and loved it, so when we came back to town we thought we'd like to try it again. We were not disappointed. Their meatloaf is homemade and excellent., and came with two sides and a fresh, crisp garden salad. Their veggie omelet was chock full of onion, tomato, pepper, etc. and was delicious. The waitress... More

This is your typical diner and they strive at being just that The food is diner quality and I mean that in a good way. It just has that greasy spoon flavor that makes diners attractive to eat at. Another unique and attractive feature is it has a large beer selection. I often stay across the street at the hotel.... More

When it comes to service with a smile, Brittany gets a 10+!!! That, on top of the Liver & Onions and French Fries and the Jack Daniels Chicken being out of this world, we will return when in area!

Someone commented a week ago about the roast beef being tough and the food would be most appealing to truck drivers. I have to laugh on that comment.No, truck drivers normally find the best off route places to eat at $ for $. Just because the diner is located at a location full of trucks doesn't mean every driver is... More

We were going south on Rt. 81 and wanted to stop to eat. Although I am not a fan of fast food the exist sign only listed all the usual. What a surprise when we're about to pull in and I spotted The Diner. We were thrilled. There was a little chill to the air so my husband ordered the... More
