We have eaten breakfast several times here. Breakfasts are standard fare, well prepared and very modestly priced. We will continue to enjoy Front Royal Diner.

Breakfast here is always a treat. Great pancakes, eggs made to order and good coffee. The waitresses are friendly and the food is made to order and comes out piping hot.

We went here for my dad's birthday. We were place in the farthest room. It smelled very musty and there were many flies. The food was terrible. The bread was stale. Never again for me

The food is always good and plenty of it. Servers have been changing but still friendly. They are really trying ,remodeling inside and fixing up the outside. This establishment is a treasure in Front Royal.

We needed up here on a Monday for lunch. The place doesn't look like much...not on the outside or the inside. The waitresses seemed to be running around like chickens with their heads cut off....but they were friendly. When we ordered we were met with 'sorry we are out of that'....not once but twice! I found that a little odd... More

We stopped by on a Sunday afternoon during a trip to Front Royal. The service was horrific, we had to remind our server about our salads and soup. The steak was tough, like it was frozen. The scallops were over cooked. The soup and salad cake after our meal. When checking out the hostess said oh well it happens every... More

I was visiting Front Royal recently with my girlfriends for a weekend away. We spotted the Diner and thought we would try it for breakfast. We ended up eating there both days and making sure we had Kimberly on our 2nd day as our waitress! OMG, a great breakfast, we could not get over the cheap price and Kimberly...fantastic. The...

Visited the diner on a couple of ocasions over the month. I had hot dogs, what a disillusionment this was. A hot dog is the way to judge any diner. I ate it, but it as a poor substitute for a real hotdog. Second visit was for breakfast, it was fair at best. Pancakes were heavy and the eggs were... More

We've eaten at the FR Diner about 6 or 8 times. Last night was the most recent. I love this little place. More than generous portions, very tasty, and decent prices. The only bad thing I have to say about it is that lately their fries have been cold so last night I asked to substitute a baked potato. The... More
