Loved the Place ! 10/10 to our waitress Anne Marie - loved every minute, what a legend! Her service was great, the food was pretty good - what you would expect from an American diner. The atmosphere was great, old but great!

We were told this place "looks like a dive but once you get inside the food's good". So, right and then sooo wrong. It's as bad as it looks. Great idea--keep a local place going 80 years, call it a neighborhood place, then you get...More
