Stopped in here fresh of the plane, hungry and ready to have a good breakfast. It is not fancy and is right out of the 50's, you can tell that from the signage and the menu. A large pancake selection and great egg dishes. Our...More

Attentive friendly service. Large flavorful omelette with homemade chili by special request. Perfect bacon side. Nice biscuits. Good hash browns. Reasonable prices. Not much atmosphere but food is good.

This is classic diner fare served but classic diner waitstaff. Seriously it is like stepping back in time to the late 50's early 60's. It has that kinda feel about the place. The food is spot on and the serve is good. Great value for...More

When there is a line into the restaurant, you know it has to be good. The service was spot on, you're seated by the host with water upon arrival at your table and the food is spectacular. If you have a chance, try the Beefeater...More
