I've eaten here quite a few times. It's a great spot to meet a friend for breakfast. It's small and very popular. I think I've had to wait in line every time I've come here. The food is good and prices are reasonable.

thought I'd try out the place on my way to a workshop, I'm here from out of town. Sat down at a booth and waited at least 10 min (3 empty booths) only to be told I would have to sit at the counter since I was a single. I explained I had a bad back and needed a booth... More

We arrived to Boston after a long redeye flight from California. Since we rented a car for our trip to Cape Cod parking in Boston became a real problem. This is a wonderful small diner less then 10 minutes from downtown Boston with parking available in front. Service is fast, food is very good. Highly recommend it.

I have been here a few times fast friendly. The breakfast simple but cooked to perfection. Love the 80's music small but cozy!

Absolutely tasteless home fries, and barely cooked. Poached eggs were good, but this may be the first time I couldn't taste any bacon in the bacon. The waitstaff looked hungover, and would rather eat THEIR breakfast than take my order. I remember now why I haven't been here in years.

The wheelhouse is our go to breakfast joint. Over the past 10 years, it is undergone a number of changes in staffing. Some of the atmosphere has changed. The famous-or infamous, if you choose-Doug no longer mans the grill. So that means that you don't hear him yell for waitresses to pick up an order. You also don't get to... More

This is the first time we've been to the Wheelhouse Diner for well over a year,but somebody today recommended their fish & chips which we were told is delicious & reasonably priced. Taking this advice my wife & I both ordered this meal complete with condiments which was well worth the wait being freshly cooked and was brought to our... More

This is my favorite breakfast spot. The food is always quick, tasty, and cheap. The place is small and usually hopping, so don't be surprised if you have to wait for a seat. Only negative is that tables only seat up to four people. Cash only!
