Here's the deal. You want to like this place. It's cool looking from the outside and it's cool that it's like an old building and they are trying to be retro. But here's the reality. 1. It's kind of dirty inside. Not the plates or...More

We've been coming here since High School (45 years) and still as good as ever. The Chili outstanding, Burgers & Fries excellent, don't forget seafood too. Pies are to die for and soda fountain still has my favorite, Cherry Coke. It's an All American Diner!!

Throwback diner with a 50s feel. All the traditional diner foods are there, but what sets this place apart is the home baked pies and the daily gourmet seafood and other specials. I highly recommend the turtle soup. Featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.

Went to this place cause it popped up on my places to visit in northern Indiana. The food was extremely good, the wait staff was great, and they make an awesome milkshake.

As a Goshen local I can say that this is one place I always recommend to out-of-towners, if you will. I do always make sure that they aren't picky though. The food is good, fresh, but the service is something to work on. Most of...More
