Sat at the counter, placed my order, and the food arrived quite quickly. Good eats. Pleasant wait staff, too. Perfect for getting in, eating, and getting out. Others were engaging in conversations, as... More

Aside from a longer than expected wait for coffee, ordering, refills, and our food, we enjoyed the authentic small town atmosphere. The food was very good, the prices extremely reasonable. The omelet was giant! Spinach and bacon omelet, yum! Disappointed... More

Family owned . Very good service . Food cooked as ordered in a quick time. Plenty of space between tables. The inside dining area needs work. concrete floors . It is clean though. Not the best to look at but the food and service can not be beat for the price. breakfast special are very resonable.

They wait till your order is delivered and everyone to have their food before telling the unlucky person at the table they ran out of whatever it is they've odered. So everyone is done eating before that person even gets their food! They are always out of something. It takes too long to get your order. They have a not... More

The first time visit, four of us went to try it out. We placed our order and everything was proceeding then I watched as the server went behind the counter, sneezed into one hand, sneezed into the other hand (not elbow, etc.) and went directly to pick up to plates of food at the window and take them to a...

Any fan of the old Pancake Ranch restaurants in the Greater Alton area should seek out the Sixth Street Diner!!! The old crew from the PR got together and opened this place when PR closed!!! I always said that they had the absolute BEST omelets in the Riverbend, and that's still the case!!! The portions are hearty, the taste is... More

Owned and run by the people that used to run the Pancake ranch by the Hit n Run in Wood River. Food is good, service is good. Price is reasonable.
