Late Sunday night (16 September after midnight), my friend and I decided to go to this diner to get something to eat after work. When we got there, there was a sign posted on the door that said “Only cold sandwiches are served”. I believe...More

We’ve never had a bad meal here. Breakfast is all day and is great. We’ve also eaten off the lunch and dinner menu and have gotten plenty of food for the price.

This is a nice dinner with tasty food. The wait staff is friendly and the prices are very reasonable. I'm in town for business and have visited this place a couple of times. A nice relaxing sit down place.

Don't recommend this place. Food is constantly changing and not very good. Took my family there for breakfast and will never go back. The service is terrible and the servers walk around talking about each other instead of doing their job

Service is very fast, but food is mediocre. Warm salad came within minutes after ordering, but there was a stone in it. Luckily, it didn't break my tooth. I guess the owner was told, because 10% was taken off the bill, but we never saw...More

Our motel clerk recommended this place so we gave it a try. It is obvious that this place is a local favorite. Service was good and so was the food. If you want a nice meal I would give this place a try.

Enjoy going here especially for breakfast. Fast service and great tasting food. Large choice of menu items. Easy on and off Interstate 81.

Great food, super staff! The menu is unlimited. The choices are absolutely endless! Desserts are to die for! Excellent selection.

I have been there often, and the service is great and the food is good. I like their liver and onions, thinly sliced, very tender. My husband and I both eat from the senior menu and it is plenty. Although we mainly go for lunch,...More

No idea- especially this one. I ride motorcycle and we love stopping at diners all over the country. This food is one of the worst in my opinion. We really have very few restaurants with good, fresh food here in Carlisle so... More
