Stopped on the way back from a trip to Norwich during the afternoon. American roadside diner themed restaurant with bright interior. Ordered chicken caesar salad and large coke. Caesar salad was very tasty and good value considering the portion size. Ordered a raspberry and white chocolate sundae which although tasty the chocolate appeared to be frozen white chocolate drops which... More

Having driven past Mr D's numerous times on our journeys to Norwich we popped in for dinner and were glad we did. Although we had to wait a couple of minutes before anyone appeared to seat us, the service was fast and friendly. The menu contains the usual wings, burgers and ribs that you would expect but also includes some... More

Place was clean and bright but a bit tacky and basic. music very loud. A BLT in this place is 3 toasted slices of cheap white bread and a poorly put together filling. Was hungry so stopped at the first place that appeared. Mistake.

A good mock American roadside diner. If you are travelling the A11 toward London this is one of the best places to eat - if not the best!

Poor service , over fried food quite overpriced for basic food. Not a very good atmosphere. I have tried this place various times since it's opened in the hope it will improve but to date I have been disappointed.

Portion sizes always amazing and the atmosphere is lovely here. Visited many times now with different people and the only major fault often agreed on is the brioche burger buns are not great and make me choose options other than the burger but very good.

First time visit. Nice welcome. The diner was bright airy and clean. Good menu with the selection as expected for an American style diner. Large portions served hot. Even had a couple of local brewed beers. Will definitely go again

We love going to Mr D's Diner for a family meal out, sometimes the service can be VERY slow though and they are no good at going slightly off menu for special requests. Burgers can be a bit chargrilled and plates a little plain looking.

This review is based on a single visit, early evening when the restaurant was half full. Waiting times were slightly longer than I was happy with. Bacon Cheese burger - The burger had obviously sat for a while. The cheese was not melted. The meat is uninspiring and dense. For £12 I expect more than this in a burger. Salmon... More
