The food was mediocre and it came salted from the kitchen making nearly inedible, which is hard to do with eggs over easy. While people like the old time charm of this place it is not a good example of a diner serving quality food.

Want to have a historical breakfast in a cool place this is it. My wife and I made this our yearly stop when vacationing in the area every summer. But the food is questionable. Eat here for nostalgia only. We are currently looking for another stop. The food use to be acceptable but something changed the past couple years. If... More

I grew up in Auburn and always went to Hunters with dates. Good food at reasonable prices. If you go make sure you get french fries with their gravy.

Charming throwback diner hanging over the river! Food was just what you want when you walk into a diner! We had a late breakfast and it was great!! We'll be back!

Perhaps someone was having a bad day. We received a cup that had something gooey on the outside, and a lemon wedge that had black "stuff" on it. We had already ordered food, so we decided to stay. The food was good - well seasoned and well made. The service started out very slow and unfriendly, but they seemed to... More

We were planning on visiting my Uncle who's in a rehab facility, so I took my Dad to visit his brother. First we stopped in at Hunter's. I first went there 50 years ago± when my Dad took me. Great down-home authentic diner food. I had a Ham & Cheese Omelet and Dad had French Toast. Great food and a... More

We were starving when we reached Auburn after a long trip from everywhere. We drove through the cute main streets and nothing seemed to stand out. Then we drove further along Genesee, on accident and found this quaint diner sitting off to the side. Immediately, we knew we were eating there. This was our son's first time being in a... More

So everything about our experience was fine, good. Just nothing crazy impressive. We went with a group of 8 and everyone was able to find something to eat and it came out in good time and was fine. The server was very nice, but didn't seem to know a whole lot about the menu. I would go there again if... More
