Sunrise has been around for years. Good southern cooking; open early for breakfast. Hey, if you want something different from Cracker Barrel, give Sunrise a try!

Typical diner food for breakfast or lunch. Nothing fancy, just good food and friendly service. We eat breakfast here once a week.

I cant recall the name of the dish i ordered, but it had hashbrowns, peppers, onions & mushrooms covered with crumbled sausage, eggs & cheddar. Also came with a side of toast. It was delicious! Service was fast & friendly. The outside of the building tells you everything--its a small, hole-in-the-wall type of diner. They don't offer eggs benedict, or... More

Love this place😎 Good Service and Friendly People. That's Lebanon👍 They didn't burn the eggs, the bacon was well done like we all asked, the toast was actually buttered and sliced as it should be and my MILK was as cold as as I serve it to myself. I want to thank my friend for introducing it to us.

if you like canned gravies, etc, you'll like it here. reminds me of what they might serve at senior citizens centers or elementary school cafeterias.

The food is good diner food. Sometimes the service is a little slow, but usually only because they are busy. Still better than most diners. Clean too.

We went for breakfast. I got chicken tender biscuits and fries. My husband had the western omlet and a pancake. My biscuits had a weird taste to them, chicken was very hard as were the fries. My husband loved the omlet which was packed full, but said the pancake was dry and didn't taste like it was buttermilk.

No frills or much of anything else. Meager menu is backed up with some specials. Seems popular with the locals. Basic service. Definitely overpriced. Would not return.
