Since I live in town we frequent the Diner . Great staff reminiscent of the old roadside diners. The menu is huge and and the portions are as well. All the baking is done there with traditional and delicious Greek desserts , cookies and pies and cheesecakes. Everyone using rt. 84 east or west should try it. It's very easy... More

The diner is like the old time diners with the same look and feel. Decent portions but definitely diner food. Hearty - OK and fits the bill.

Bright and clean large dinner with plenty of parking just off Exit 10 on I84. Very good service and a good selection of items and pastries. Visited for brunch and had an overstuffed Monte Christo. So stuffed I needed a doggie bag. Highly recommend!

It was ok for a diner. Ordered the Hamburger Deluxe and it was not a fresh hamburger, it was too perfect and flat to be freshly made. Cole slaw is the typical diner choice, good fries. My partner had a roast beef open hot sandwich. Plenty of food, but roast beef was a little fatty. I have to say, the... More

This is my stop anytime I'm heading East on Rt 84. This is a great local diner that's near the highway. The staff is friendly, the prices are fine, and portions are large. The food quality is top notch. I usually have burger or an omelette and I'v never been skunked always delicious.

This is our usual lunch stop when traveling between Philadelphia and Boston. It's always good, the service is always friendly and prompt, and the choices are enormous as you expect of an old-fashioned diner. We generally seek out traditional diners when we travel and this one fits the bill perfectly.

I love this place and always visit when I stay with friends in the area. This is the real deal diner wise, it's just great. Busy, buzzy, great food, so much choice you can't decide what to have and when it does arrive, it's great. Superb!

I should mention right away that I have never eaten a meal here. I stop here whenever I am on route 84 on my way to NJ. I usually buy at least one challah to bring with me when I visit my family in NJ. I often will also stop to use the bathroom which is usually clean. Whenever I... More

...this place fills the bill. From the exterior which is reminiscent of diners from the past...to the entrance...decor...popularity...and variety of food. Take a trip to an era when things were simpler. The bustle of activity adds to the uniqueness of this place. Our server had 4 tables seated at the same time, and she was able to handle all four...
