The diner was busy, but we were seated quickly. The waitstaff was very nice and accommodating. Our breakfast came out quick and was delicious. We definitely will be going back next time we are in Lake George

This place was a nice stop to have a good, quick breakfast. We had the breakfast burrito, pancakes, scrambled eggs with chopped ham, bacon and sausage patties. Four meals and drinks for around $40.

Came here and ordered the Sunrise Special with bacon on the side and a cup of coffee. Service was a bit slow but breakfast came out in a decent amount of time. Pricing is also very reasonable .

The restaurant was built to give you that Rail car feeling. It was cute but kind of squishy. We sat 4 people at a round corner seat and felt like we were on top of each other. The food was priced reasonable and tasted pretty good. We had breakfast there and the service was pretty quick as was the time... More

We went there for lunch and sat at the counter. It was truly a diner experience, from the juke box to the sugar dispenser. We had hamburger and club house sandwich. The clubhouse was amazing with carved turkey and very flavorful. We enjoyed the lunch very much

Looking for a reasonable priced meal. I enjoy family diners. They usually try harder and was not disappointed. The grilled boneless pork chops were very good

I'm so happy my dad stopped here with us because it was one of the best places I've been to for breakfast. The French toast was delicious and the service was wonderful. It's a 50's diner as well which was awesome! I plan on coming back here to eat next year when we come up to visit :)
