This is a "safe" place to eat if you want down home comfort food. Never been disappointed here. Friendly staff and quick service.

The Diner is friendly, fun, down-to-earth, homey, come as you are, home cooking! You can't beat it. So what if the cushions are a little ripped and the counters a little stained...this place tells a story and should never be changed!

Vintage Diner that has the best home cooked food on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Highly recommend. Great breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a snack.

good burger and great cole slaw! Busy place with only 6 booths. If you don't get a booth, better get a stool at the counter. It's well worth it. Server was not that enthusiastic or attentive, but did give good suggestions.

If you like good, local food for very reasonable prices, this is your spot. We had great fresh shrimp and clam strips with tasty sides and friendly service. Don't be scared away by the appearance. The building is old, but clean and authentic.

This is our second time at the diner. I absolutely love the atmosphere. This time I tried the chicken and dumplings and yum! My husband always gets breakfast and his only complaint is the sausage links are too spicy for his taste. Wish they had cornbread every day and not just the weekends. Service was good as always.

This is a very unique restaurant, at least it was for me as I've not eaten at a diner style restaurant before. This one has age and character, but has clearly been well cared for. The food was excellent, and the service was good as well. I left trying to come up with an excuse to come back for breakfast... More

If you're looking for great, inexpensive diner food, this is it! This your more-than-typical roadside, trailer diner. This is real! Friendly customer service, quick delivery of food and great atmosphere. They even sell T-shirts! Highly recommend this to everyone.
