Looking for a convenient place for lunch alongside the highway, we found the Walnut Bottom Diner. It's everything you could ask for: convenient, clean, super friendly, and good food.

It doesn't matter what time of day or night, you can always have breakfast! I choose the western omelet, with home fries and toast. My hubby loves sausage and eggs!

My husband and I Took all the kids out for breakfast. It was very inexpensive and there was great service. They were quick to take our order and bring our food. And with kids you can imagine how important speed of service is.

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
