Our waitress was awesome. Extremely attentive and nice. Service was a little on the slow side (diner was not too busy). Food is just ok. Greasy spoon. Nothing spectacular but does the job and portions are huge for like $10. Restaurant is very authentic!

We stopped for a late lunch at the 5th Street Diner and are glad we did. The food (gyro and chocolate soda) was quite good and the decor and ambiance was a trip down memory lane. The price was quite reasonable as well.

I have eaten here when in Great Falls twice before and enjoyed the food and 50's diner atmosphere. This time I enjoyed the food. But, I found the management has let the place get a little dingy. It could use a good scrub, fresh paint,...More

Breakfast is amazing! Have to get a homemade cinnamon roll for a breakfast appetizer! Huge and scrumptious. The nostalgia everywhere is so neat. Friendly staff and quick to get your food. Definitely recommend & definitely going back whenever in Great Falls.

We were surprised and pleased to find this place open on a Sunday afternoon but it was filled with local families and travelers like us. The decor was very 1950's with pictures of Elvis and James Dean, old album covers, and other memorabilia. The waitress...More

While walking downtown, decided to stop in for lunch at this corner restaurant. Impressed with this upgrade from an old Woolworths store, they continued to have the counter and chairs long ago. Food was served rather quickly, which the clam chowder was delicious but the...More

We chose this diner assuming we could have all day breakfast (isn't this normal for diners?) but were disappointed to learn they stopped serving at lunch time. We travelled with guest from England and hoped for a 50's american diner vibe. It was a bit...More
