Stopped in for a post Church breakfast. The 2 younger ones opted for lunch choices. No problem. The waitresses are all a bit older and work at their own pace. But the place is packed with customers coming and going. The food is decent and the restaurant is clean. I recommend their Breakfast #1. All you could ever want in... More

By far a great place to take the family for some good old fashion atmosphere and cooking. I don't believe anyone could be disappointed. Hats off to the Longways staff.....

The dinner is always full and everyone is running around to keep everyone served. The prices are good for feeding a large family while on vacation. The food was very good but the tables need to be cleared faster as lots of people were waiting for tables that were still a mess from customers leaving. We will sop again for... More

For a diner, this is as good as it gets. Target market is truck drivers, not saying truck drivers don't deserve a good home cooked meal or the like of. Everything is out of a can or jar (sides).

Diners are everywhere in this part of the country. The food is standard diner fare. You know what to expect and they deliver. The only time we do diners is for breakfast. It's not like you can get much to make it better. The service is quick. The food is decent. Get in get out.

We decided to eat breakfast on our way to aleksandria bay. The place was almost full but we managed to find a table. The place is quite small with old fashioned look. What can I say about meals - they were really tasty and big😊. But the service was very slow. We were waiting for the checks more than we... More

I remember when it was a great place to eat. Worst breakfast ever food was bland and tasteless. The service was slow and it wasn't busy.

Excellent food, excellent value. Home cooked just like mama used to make. Portions are so large that you can make two meals from them.
