Stopped here after a long day on the road. We were pulled in by a sign outside that noted a special of Chicken and dumplings. Yummy, this has to be good. Wrong!! It was terrible. Very small bits of chicken accompanied by large egg noodles.NO dumplings and floating in a thick oily chicken gravy. The accompanying small corn bread biscuit... More

Wow! Sure sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the chicken and dumplings. We usually get awesome reviews on them. And we make them fresh constantly. We were happy to get you something else you may enjoy. If by chance you are from up north I've heard they are made totally different from how we do it in the south. Thanks... More

...of those who didn't care for this place. I saw no problems. Food is good, service is good, and it's clean. We hit the trifecta. Price was not bad, considering it being located on high-dollar property near the interstate. Yes, the brown gravy was probably from a car, but that's almost forgiveable.

Noticed this on last trip through the area and made a note to check it out this trip. Glad I was able to come here for supper. So many items to chose from but I settled on the shrimp Po-boy sandwich. It lacked the special sauce that comes on Po-boys in New Orleans but the shrimp was perfectly cooked and... More

Wayne's diner is located just off Interstate 10 in Pensacola, Florida and is well worth getting off the highway. They offer down-home cooking - everything from chicken fried steak and liver & onions to chicken & dumplings. Fast service, great southern cooking, and a good price. Highly recommended!

I had the fried oysters with fried okra and field peas - very good! Husband had fried catfish with turnip greens and French fries- the fish was great and the turnips were spiced perfectly. Fries are fries. No banana splits but they look marvelous. A must visit!

After a week of Disney and Universal high priced quick meals, Wayne's Family Diner was a Blessing to our Pocket Books and Taste Buds!
