Harold and Cathy's is a great stop when you are in the vicinity of the Marine Corps Base at Quantico. This diner could have been a scene in Clint Eastwood's Heartbreak Ridge. The restaurant is a time warp. You almost won't stop, based on appearances...More

The atmosphere is friendly, service is great (food comes quickly and hot), timely refills on coffee, the food well prepared and tasty. A place even the state troopers frequent. A local establishment worth considering for a great breakfast.

I don't know if they salt them as they cook, but they do offer grits, and they are good (I've had them a number of times).

Yes. but not at one long table, tables a basically 4 per table unless you pull a couple together. It's just a small local place.
