I wasn't disappointed at all. A throwback to an earlier time with solid, traditional diner food. Good service, good food, and don't forget to leave room for dessert...those traditional diner pies are great...I had the apple a la mode...yum.

There is nothing like a diner......it always takes us back to our past. We stopped here for lunch during a recent visit to Dover and once you step past their door, you are in for a good diner experience. The food was what we expected.......good, but not over the top. I enjoyed my Toasted Cheese Sandwich with Tomato, but my... More

We stopped in here for a family breakfast/brunch. We are from out of town and followed the reviews on trip advisor however we were very disappointed with our experience. From the moment we opened the door it smelled like poo (I am not kidding) the food had no flavor, and the waitress did not want to tell us what "scrapple"... More

Typical diner fare with a menu that offers lots of variety. Service was friendly but a bit spotty on a quiet weekday afternoon. The gyros we had were tasty but the serving was smaller than we would have expected for the price.

On the way to the beach and looking for breakfast. I stopped here. No chance to read any reviews, I was just looking for a non-chain restaurant and saw this 50s diner and pulled into the parking lot. Waitress was friendly and got my food out to me quickly. I liked the buttermilk pancakes. The poached eggs were hard- didn't... More

Our waitress was awsome and that was the only thing good here. First they way over priced for a dinner. The food was not very good at all. Pancakes tasted flat. Frys had no salt. The dinner was clean. We will not return again.

We almost always stop in for a late breakfast. Staff is wonderful and the food is great and reasonably priced. The bathrooms, though, need serious work. Stall doors need to be repaired, fixtures and facilities need replacement or thorough cleaning, and the ceiling leaks. Soon, if repairs are not made, we will be dining elsewhere.

We had breakfast here two days during the trip and loved it both times. This diner has been there for more than 50 years and it has a great diner feel to it. The inside is modern and the tables and booths are comfortable. The staff is fun and friendly. Our breakfast came with hashbrowns or home fries but we... More

Good omelets, Moop 1 had ham and cheese, ham was clearly sugar cured and really good. Moop 2 had mushroom and Swiss, lots of Swiss cheese, also really good. Grits were OK, potatoes were a little better than OK. Good breakfast stop, not outstanding but solid, Props for the chrome diner, always a hit for us.

Slow leisurely breakfast after my wife ran the MonsterMash half marathon in October. It was an absolutely gorgeous day for a race and the food was diner food, just what we wanted. Huge quantities and reasonable prices. It's worth a stop for a look at the decor...lots of antique toys.
