This diner is a quaint diner, great food and the early morning specials are great. Love their hot maple syrup when you order pancakes, french toast or waffles...so good. The waitresses are always friendly and efficient. We go there often for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

This place was once only good for those drunk late night meals after a night of drinking on Main Street but under the new ownership it is now a nice family place to have a great meal at an affordable price. It is now taken care of and you can feel the pride the new owners have for this place.... More

This is our go to diner when in bayshore. I've always found the service to be good and the food is freshly prepared. The portions are large and filling.

It is the local diner and easy to go to in a hurry. The new owner and management is definitely better than the previous one.

a wide variety of menu items, as well as daily specials to order. While busy, service was quick, staff friendly, and all orders exact.

We have been here twice since the new ownership. And you can really tell the difference in food. It is delicious! Both times our servers were very attentive and friendly. We definitely will be back.

Went here for breakfast before meeting some friends. Diner menu was nice and prices were excellent. Had breakfast wrap that comes with juice, coffee and home fries, which all was fresh, hot and tasty. The problem exists with regard to service. Not once was I offered more coffee nor if everything is OK by my server plus it took nearly... More

Always enjoy Forum Diner - this was no exception, even with new owners. Great breakfast after mass - great service - still busy & every meal was hot and served in a good amount of time.

Went to this diner about 40 yrs ago. Has had many changes in ownership over the years. The current owners know the meaning of good customer service. Food fresh and tasty with generous portions. Extensive menu selection. Went there while visiting relatives who are regular diners. Highly recommend.

Thank Mary R
