With a fantastic location & very friendly staff, I desperately would like to give this place a better review. But the food is why you come to a restaurant & both times we tried, it was just not up to par. My chicken cordon blue was spongy & obviously a frozen product reheated. Mashed potatoes were instant. Another time, sandwiches... More

We frequent this diner a lot. Mostly for breakfast. Food is solid diner fare with some twists thrown in for specials. Haven't disappointed in many visits. Service is great, atmosphere is friendly, family and neighbors. We usually are the only guests who don't know other people there.

We go here many weekends for breakfast. Service and food are very good. They keep coffee cups refilled. Prices are reasonable. They will make menu substitutions without a fuss.

A greek family leads this restaurant already for many years with their heart. Customer comes first. We had a little breakfast, my grecian egg dish was very delicious. The extra potatoes was not necessary for me. My breakfast was not as cheap as the others. Not really sure why it is double the price. The toast, fries and potatoes from... More

Ate here with a friend for breakfast. Prices and fair and food was quickly delivered. Basic breakfast fare offered and the service was polite, helpful and friendly. They had a regular morning crowd based on the first name basis that was used. Loyalty means a lot in this business so it must speak loud and clear for this establishment. Once... More

I love this diner. The food is quick, the prices are amazing, and most of the waitstaff have cute Greek accents. It makes you feel like you're in the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding! Although I might be biased, because I am Greek =] Anyways, they have a huge variety of breakfast items, lunch items, and dinners that come... More

I let my in-laws pick a place for a Friday fish-fry (hard to find a good one in Austin, where I live). Mistake. Friday night at 7PM, about 8 tables occupied, not a good sign. We asked the server how the food was, and she laughed and looked at us like we had multiple heads. Ordered fish fries and some... More

I ordered a hot roast beef sandwich, what I got was a real mess. The beef was tough, fatty, stringy with a big piece of fatty grizzle in it, the gravy was way to salty, the grease had not been changed for the french fries in a long time. I left most of it on my plate and the waitress... More

Our family (14 of us) was looking for a place to eat breakfast before a family wedding. Someone mentioned the Bay Front on Empire. We were there on a Saturday morning and the waitress was able to seat us all together. The food was great, the service was exceptional and we loved the place. It would have cost us more... More
