Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and diners are great place to get 'real' food. Wade's was great for breakfast and is a true diner. We went there early on a Saturday morning and there were just a few customers. The service was super friendly & very fast. I wish we could go back tomorrow but we head... More

Our son is a sophomore at SUNY Oswego and he has been telling us how much he loves Wades. We finally got to try it while up visiting him this weekend. It was a busy Sunday morning (the dirt races were going) on but we were seated quick enough. The food was really good and plentiful. The atmosphere is great... More

In reading the LIGHTHOUSE TOUR review and going to Wade's, I must refute their findings. Wade's treats everyone with fast, courteous service! Food is consistently great and fairly priced. LIGHTHOUSE review should be NOT considered as a typical experience and as small as this town is, no one cares where you came from, we're just glad to have you here!!

Tell ya what, this is the greatest place to stop each and every morning just to get the day going. Wade's has the biggest and best tasting breakfast entrees ever. In over the last 15 or more years that I have been stopping I have never seen anyone discriminated on. Yes I was in Wade's 3 mornings ago when Lighthouse... More

We stayed overnight in Oswego to continue our lighthouse tour. My husband and I were told that Wade's dinner was a great place for breakfast. I guess that might be said for the locals who dine here daily. We came in from Toronto, Canada. I guess after seeing our license plate and the color of my skin, the welcome wasn't... More

As you can see, I waited a few days before responding to your review. I must admit that I was very disappointed in what you had to say. It was very detrimental to me, my employees and most importantly to my customers. You could not be any farther from the truth. In the first place our diner has never treated... More
