“Nice little diner”
Reviewed 29 January 2014 via mobile

Chose to go here one morning after finding Country Ham and Eggs way too busy. Very glad we did. Sat at the counter which we usually never do, but enjoyed it a lot. Food was excellent and service was very friendly. Seemed more of a locals place, and struck up a few conversations with those around us. An enjoyable time.

We did not have occasion to try the German food at night, but we have heard good things and plan to try it our next visit.

“Good place for breakfast . . . regulars are on a first name basis”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

Stopped in there one morning for breakfast while on vacation. Regulars were friendly, service and food was good. I won't hesitate to come back there for a good breakfast. Payment is "cash only" so be prepared.

“Total Bait-and-Switch”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

Saw advertising for cheap Wednesday lobster dinner, and when we arrived they said you had to have a reservation for it. Didn't see that detail on the poster!
The place was totally empty. Decided not to sit down and try their other food.

“BEST place in town”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Diner by day German by night is what this place does best. In the morning come for the BEST pancakes and eggs around then at night get a Lobster dinner or Prime Rib that is perfect. Everybody knows your name and what you eat and everybody is great to meet and everything is great to eat.
