“dreadful food”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Have just returned form Capone's Diner. What can only be described as a dreadful experience. My partner ordered the soup, chicken and mushroom soup which was a tasteless glutinous mess. One could almost stand the spoon in the mess. The cheese burger was almost as tasteless. When the bill came no offer of reduction for the soup not eaten. The service was good but I am afraid we will not be returning and we cannot recommend the diner to anyone

“Good for a quick lunch”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

This is a friendly little diner in Douglas. The staff are nice and the food is cheap. It's not going to win awards but it's nice enough. Great if you want a nice hot lunch. Service is quick.

“High class greasy spoon!”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

If you want good food at a good price this is your place. It's not a high class joint, it is a greasy spoon, but a great greasy spoon. Quirky American themed diner with traffic lights and guns as decoration as well as vintage Statue of Liberty and CocaCola prints. Quick service and a varied menu. Very attentive staff.

The Lasagne is highly recommended.

Only downside, the seating booths are a little on the narrow side!
