Great selection of items for breakfast. Service was good however requested toast was forgotten, then delivered incorrectly and then correctly later. Breakfast entrees were all very good.

I had lunch with friends on the way to the airport and was pleasantly surprised. Large selection, reasonably priced and the waitress was terrific. One of the best turkey clubs I've ever had. Wish we had one in the Northeast.

We were overwhelmed by the choices. The food was good. The service was great! More food than one person should eat. We shared a plate. So many nostalgic options! Would definitely do it again!

Surprisingly good food served in a popular 50s/60s themed restaurant. Many house specials daily with as well as an unusually comprehensive menu. Quite simply excellent food at reasonable prices.
