I ordered the broiled flounder mini meal and got the salad bar as a side dish. The meal was great and I thought the price was reasonable. Don't go for the decor; the inside looks like it was last updated in 1982. However, the menu seems like a typical diner with a good selection of choices.

At the front door there is a sign that says.....Seniors, 15 % discount all day everyday...However, when paying my check the cashier told me the discount doesn't apply to the salad bar....When asked why isn't that on the sign.....Her response was you can't put everything on a sign......That Diner just lost my boat club for the summer.....

My husband and I have eaten there twice and will not return. Low grade meals and not worth your monies. Not too many specials and the seating is small.

Granted, I can be a critical s.o.b. at times and I guess even somewhat persnickety but being a lifetime senior Cecil County resident I've picked up on a few things. When you sit down for a meal put your hat on. Allow for 3-5 ' to be seated. Allow another 3-5' to be "greeted" with a shallow "what'll it be... More

Mother and son ate breakfast there. We ate in the Marilyn Monroe Room. All walls covered in her photos. 6 pieces of perfectly done bacon. Never expected more then 3. Eggs over medium, perfect. Coffee served in Thermos. Really love that.

Different? Yes, the day we were here (Sunday, 8/7) one of the breakfast specials was a Cheesesteak Omelet. It was an omelet filled with chopped steak, cheese, green pepper, onions. Different and delicious. This was our first visit here. We were seated in the "Marilyn Room". All walls were filled with pics of Marilyn Monroe. Different. One of our party... More

We stop in here about once very other month or so. The hostess / cashier has always been very friendly and always comments on our blue eyed grandson. The food and service has always been consistently good.
