How can you beat 2 eggs, 2 bacon, 2 sausage, 1/2 waffle and coffee for $4.55! Not to mention, great service! Would definitely eat here again on our next visit to the area!

Stopped there for lunch earlier today. When you're driving from NYC to Rochester, NY, there are not a lot of stops on route 17 to the southern tier. Thank goodness, the Blue Dolphin is there. It is a throwback to the diners of yore. The...More

This Greek diner just off route 17 in Apalachin NY is convenient for people passing through and popular with Binghamton area locals. There are several Greek specialities including baklava and spanicoptia. My favorites though are the fish dishes such as trout an haddock. I guarantee...More
