The best chicken wings I've had in years. They were plump and juicy and well just fabulous. I've been back twice to take them home for the kids. I've also enjoyed the pork chops and they were top notch as well.

I came here for a breakfast meeting the other day after a long hiatus. The service was efficient but far from overbearing. The food was good and served quickly . I will go back again and the next visit will be sooner rather than later

When I have to be in Saratoga Springs early in the morning, I often stop here for breakfast. Every time the service has been very efficient and friendly, and the food has been terrific. Ham and eggs, omelettes, pancakes, french toast--I've had them all and have enjoyed them thoroughly. Plus, every time I've been here, the place is spotlessly clean.

Great diner food. Everything that you would expect from a terrific diner. Terrific location at the intersection of Route sixty seven and nine. Plenty of parking with two entrances.

I was there for dinner on September 18th with my husband and daughter. My server seemed rather annoyed when asked if she could kindly repeat their soup options for the evening. Lastly, when she mixed up my husbands pastrami on rye for some gloppy gravy open faced sandwich she said out loud oh (darn), I (messed) up right in front... More

We were just passing through town at dinner time, and a local business acquaintance suggested we try the Malta Diner. My husband and I both ordered the Chef Salad, which consisted of lots of lettuce and lunchmeat, with a few hard-boiled eggs thrown in. Prices were high (the salad was $10), and the service was mediocre to say the least.... More

Well, at times inconsistent with the wait staff. Soups are very good. Breakfast portions are plenty. Will always stop in when in the area. Can be busy at times which is always a good sign that they have a loyal following.

We were there for breakfast. The waitress we had was very distracted and I had to ask two other waitresses for coffee and water. The food was diner food. So not great, not bad. They DO seem to have very good baked items--I sampled a cookie on the way out.
