I heard lots of good things about this place. The food was overpriced and the service was terrible. I don't plan to go back. Ever.

Cool spot, good atmosphere, great burger. Not so much a fan of the fries but other than that I'd go back...

Just like a diner from the 50's. Very nicely decorated, and food was very good. Glad we went. I highly recommend the philly chicken sandwich. Service was attentive. There is pay parking in front, but you can usually find a free space across the street down the side street.

Typical diner with good eats. Interesting decor. definitely a fun place to grab a quick bite. Had the pork plate that was excellent. Even made me a fresh batch of hush puppies because they didn't like the looks of the ones they had.

We hit this diner for a quick dinner after a long day at the beach. The food was typical diner fair: hotdogs, burgers and fries. My burger was great however my kids didn't love their dogs. One complaint: there were several flies who visited us during our meal which drove me nuts.

Thank B R
