It didn't live up to the good reviews. The home fries tasted nowhere near freshly cooked. Despite the fact it was not at all a busy time. Coffee was average. Neither food nor plate was really hot as it should be. Sorry to bring the...More

Basic Dinner, has a large verity of items in the Menu. Pretty generic. We had to almost tackle a waiter to get us our bill. OK for a non occasional meal

Not just well done classic diner offerings, but creative twists incorporating updated seasonings and ingredients. Nice fusion of international and Americana favorites. Service was attentive and efficient. Will try again when in the area.

For a European like me, seeing such a bling blings restaurant is uncommon. So we took many photos of the outside of the restau. My husband found this when he was looking for a local diner. We were satisfied with the foods and the service....More
