We ate breakfast here while visiting our children at camp. We were pleasantly surprised. Food was good and very reasonable. Service was excellent and they were eager to please and get you anything you needed or wanted. We will be back.

Meals are large and of decent quality. Diner needs some cleaning. Some things appear to have been missed for a very long time. Light fixtures(and security lights) need cleaning as well as the windowsills etc.

Decided to stop for lunch on our trip and ended up at the Circle E Diner. Good choice! Waitress very friendly and helpful and the food was basic diner fare prepared well for a reasonable price. The Cream of Broccoli soup was amazing!

Stopped here while on a detour from 17. The fried chicken was outstanding. The milk shakes and pies were excellent too. Prices and food were great for a small town restaurant!

Met up with friends for lunch. Had the most delicious Brussels sprout and cheese soup. Shared different sandwiches and all were good. Waitress was very friendly and the restaurant was clean and bright. Definitely a hometown/home cooking diner.
