We have eaten here several times when we have our bikes serviced at Silver Eagle Harley. It is close and we stay at the HoJo next door. We ate a late lunch and had on two separate occasions the Prime a Rib Sandwich is excellent. You get a large bowl of salad to share with the table. They bring out... More

There were 13 of us and we all were very delighted with our meals. This was one of the best patty melts I have ever had, if not the best! If I lived in town I would eat here more often.

We had a lunch with good service and good food. The salad was served family style with a great selection of dressings. Our sandwiches were tasty and the waitress was friendly. We didn't try anything challenging or it might have gotten 5 stars. I'd eat there again.

I stayed at Howard Johnson's next door and although it was fairly late, I had not eaten dinner yet. Ashley, the server, was fantastic. She had many customers but did not appear harried. Made me a great drink while I waited for my order to go. The burger was too salty, but I was hungry enough not to care. I... More

Usually eat here for dinner when in town for work. Love their salads with homemade dressing. If you want more salad, just ask. I have had their wraps, fish, and pasta. All were great!

Dark, scary clouds and pending thunderstorm ended our day's motorcycle journey in Waterloo, Iowa. The front desk attendant at Howard Johnson Hotel across the parking lot recommended Hwy 63 Diner as the best place for dinner. We arrived very early for dinner and glad we did. This is a very popular local eatery and quickly filled up on a Friday... More

Service was excellent but the food left a lot to be desired. Access was good from the main drag. Restaurant could use a deep clean.

We were staying at the hotel that shared the parking lot with the diner and they recommended we go here. The food was amazing, I travel to waterloo frequently and am disappointed i haven't eaten here before. Will definitely come back.
