Breakfast is served all day long. Generous servings great taste. Wonderful staff, friendly, they keep the coffee hot. Best bacon I've ever tasted.

Thanks for dining with us & posting. Thick 14-16 applewood smoked, the best tasting we can find, XTRA lg eggs, loaded omelets, etc. No shortcuts for you. Thanks again. More

Read all the hoopla that The Diner had printed about itself and decided to give it a try. Upon our arrival the people dining next to us (who were locals) advised us not to order the onion rings, so we didn't. My husband was asked how he wanted his burger cooked and the guy working the grill had a loud... More

Sorry for your really bad experience. Sounds like we totally failed both of you. We always want honest feedback. We want the feedback as we clearly needed to take corrective/disciplinary action. I was there, would have liked to have spoken to you directly and redone your Reuben for you. It is a shame to waste about 8 oz of our... More

Again this year we decided to visit and again used the 10% off coupon that is available in several discount publications for the area. My family of 5 had a variety of meals. My daughter had a chicken tender kids meal, hubby and oldest son had the meatloaf special which was the meatloaf dinner with choice of 2 sides for... More

We had lunch at this restaurant on May 10th. There is parking in front of the restaurant. There was not that much people eating. We had both a burger with fries. Do not expect to get a good grilled burger. The bacon was good, but the lettuce was not very fresh. We will not recommend this place.

Sorry for your bad experience. I was there, would have welcomed your feedback, was aware of no such problems, saw none, from the hundreds of customers I spoke to on the 10th. From this comment I cannot tell if your fresh char-grilled burger was overcooked, undercooked or which burger you had, 1/4, 1/3 or half Angus, Elk or Buffalo. Rare... More

Come to town several times a year for cheer competitions and The Diner has become a staple. It's hard to find good food, large selection, and good prices but The Diner has all of that plus staff that are friendly and decor that is fun.

We ate at The Diner this evening. I had their Diner Dog and the two ladies split a breakfast. (They weren't hungry.) The Diner is a 1950s themed place with a menu that, while it is not a true 50s menu, reflects the 50s with a good variety of things you might have found on a 50s menu. The people... More

My goodness. As you may know, we always appreciate honest feedback.

Clearly we will not make all the people happy all the time. We’re just a... More

We came in during a car show for hamburgers. There was a short wait when we came in. We ordered burgers which were good. The only problem was getting refills on our drinks. Our server Carolann was nice enough, but didn't seem to be able to keep up with a busy atmosphere. We recommend the food, just hope it isn't... More

We are somewhat local, so we visit at least two times a month. They have expanded the menu a couple of years ago and offer many choices from breakfast and on. We are basic lunch folks and get their burger basket. I personally love the mushroom and Swiss burger. Both the chips and fries are very good and my wife... More

Although was busy, we were seated promptly. Waitresses wore poodle skirts--a little odd on the mainly senior adult ladies that served. Now for the best thing...the onion rings were delicious. Some of the best I have ever had. The chocolate shake was just fine. I ordered a hamburger to be cooked well done. It was not, but I didn't take... More
