If you are in the mood for diner food, eat here! My husband and I ate here on a Sunday morning while our son was playing lacrosse nearby. We sat right down, no wait for a table. The menu offers lots of choices. Service fast, food is good at a fair price.

Whatever you do, don't order an appetizer. Not that they're not good (they are), but the dishes are so enormous, plus soup or salad, plus two big sides (coleslaw, fries, mashed potatoes, etc) that you're not going to need to an appetizer. Come starving. From the name, you can tell there's an Italian flair. The pasta and chicken dishes are... More

We come to this diner every time we come up for the Dressage at Devon horse show. But NOT ANY MORE. We ordered the prime rib. We were told 15 minutes after we ordered that they did not have any baked potatoes. So we cancelled the order. The waitress brought the food to us anyways and told us we could... More

I really love this diner. The line always looks really long, but somehow the wait isn't too bad. Great Greek food, soups, and bloody Mary's!

I used to like their food, but i think that the quality has gone down. The best thing is that they're open 24 hours, and their desserts are excellent. And, if you drink alcohol, they have a liquor license. Kind of disappointing though when you get something that has been good in the past, and it's not good anymore. Still... More

Most diners don't take reservations BUT with half our party handicapped we had a need! So an advance phone call and they had a table for ten ready for us at the ideal time. The menu is wide and varied with something for every picky eater and I had eight such folks. Prices are extremely reasonable and the waitress, Julia,... More

Great breakfast! Omelets as fresh and moist as they come! ..and real potatoes for hash browns! My little guy's pancakes looked fluffy and fantastic too...and they filled his milk to the brim! Coffee was good but would be nice if it were refilled more regularly (the ONLY mild complaint). Only other minor suggestion would be for a whole grain toast... More

food is serviceable and the prices are fair for a place on the main line. the place is always packed so be prepared to wait for a table at peak eating times

Minellas is a Wayne Icon. It's usually good and sometimes great with an occasional mis-step. If you order an entree, you can usually expect to take 1/2 the dish home for tomorrows lunch! I think they do better with the dishes that the chefs feel like highlighting that day so consider ordering those first!
