Fantastic local diner. Great responsive friendly service. Delicious homemade food. Daily specials. Large selection of sides. Wonderful prices. We had the special of the day, homemade meatloaf with mashed potatoes and gravy with a side (I had Waldorf salad, my husband had beets) and rolls with butter. Very filling and satisfying!!! We will go back when we're in the area.

We ate here in November after the B & B we were staying in informed us they do not serve breakfast! The waitresses were so friendly and the food was absolutely delicious!

The owners and patrons were friendly and inviting. It is a family run business for 26 years. Recently renovated, it has a very warm, cozy atmosphere. The food was both good and inexpensive. I highly recommend it!

Try to arrive before 10 for a good breakfast, efficiently served in this local cafe. Basic old style local place and appears to be popular with local people. We've visited several times over the past seven years and the food and service is always pretty consistent.

Stopped by Hawksbill while on a couples weekend in the Valley. Reviews were not wrong, great friendly service, ample portions, and tasty food. Under $20 (cash) for breakfast for 2 was great. We will return.

I've been here once and I'm waiting to come back. We were visiting Luray and decided to come here for dinner, the food here was completely amazing and our waitress was a sweetheart.

Nice diner with great home cooking. The potato salad is awesome! Good size portions and budget friendly prices. The staff is very friendly and service was quick. Would eat there again if we are back in the area.

Thanks TA friends for your recommendations. Wife and I were enjoying the park and decided to take a drive for lunch. Based on reviews we stopped in here and were very glad we did. Comfort food at its best served by a very friendly server. Highly recommended as the food and service was simply first class. We will return.

We were on a road trip and looking for somewhere to get breakfast. We happened to see the diner sign and, since the parking lot was packed at 10am, figured that was all the advertisement we needed. We loved everything about it, from the counter seating to the jukebox and the overall homey feel of the place. Very kid-friendly and... More
