The food here is great but the service was horrible. The waitress never asked if we needed anything else, and she had zero manners. Not friendly what so ever.

Breakfast with family. Nothing fancy or trendy but if your looking for well cooked typical diner food this is the place. Egg meat and potato plates came just as requested. Great blueberry pancake. Should have ordered another. Meatloaf mashed and pea dinner that passed our way was picture perfect. Lots of locals as well as ourselves were greeted warmly. Best... More

We ate here every morning since our hotel had "continental breakfast." Just like a neighborhood cafe in your hometown. My husband didn't care so much for it. He said the food all tasted like it was cooked in fish grease. Prices are reasonable. Saturday mornings are really busy so come early. Closed Sunday

Service is terrific, friendly, and polite. I recommend you eat here for good food at reasonable prices and your bottomless cup of coffee. This diner even has the classic... More

We ate at the Busy Bee for breakfast twice during a recent visit. I would call this establishment a Classic Diner. The service was great with friendly staff, reasonable prices and quality food with generous portions.

Had some breakfast here last week and tried the egg sandwich. Well, what can I say? It was amazing! The Busy Bee egg sandwich was among the best egg sandwiches that I have ever had. The two eggs they put on the sandwich were cooked to perfection, along with the bacon they put on top of it. It was a... More
