We were out viewing fall foliage and decided to take a chance on the diner, which we found on Google Maps. Very basic, but the service was quick and friendly, portions were generous, the food was good, and prices were very reasonable. They don't take credit cards.

I found the food to be nothing special and the waitress that day paid more attention to me yet I was a paying customer also. I... More

Parkhill is our reliable local pizza shop and they do a great job staying in that lane. They know what they do best and don't try to mix it up.

The place is a little hole in the type place - not fancy at all. But great food and that's what we look for in a diner. The... More
