“1930's Diner retains much of historic character”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2013

A lot of great original detail despite several renovations. Interior has original floor tile, stools, curved roof with old mural at each end. Mural is rumored to have been painted in the 1950's by a homeless man in exchange for food. 1934 Silk City manufacturer. There are fewer and fewer of these around. Ignore any bad reviews going back more than a year since ownership changed hands. I enjoyed my breakfast and hope to go back soon for other meals. The burger ordered by a nearby customer looked thick, hand formed and juicy. Now, do not compare 5 stars for an old diner with 5 stars for a modern restaurant. It is what it is supposed to be.

“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2012

Not a gourmet place, but a decent diner. Hey, it's diner food, what do you expect. I was surprised when I was asked if I wanted bacon on my BLT. Like I said, it's a diner.

“Pleasant meal with a lot of local thrown in.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2011

Wanted something not scripted and routine and saw the diner across from some chains and gave it a try/. Had great bowl of hearty Bean Soup and the special spaghetti with meat sauce. Felt made on the premises . I always had a full drink and a pleasant server with a smile.

“A ripe slice of old fashioned breakfast.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2011

This diner runs circles around the waffle house across the street. The menu is short but plentiful, and the food is everything that comes to mind when you think of classic breakfast. The people who frequent this quaint diner are all fine examples of the working class. And its very welcoming and clean. The bridge diner, not far from the actual train bridge, is a fine slice of Americana right smack on the edge of Havre de Grace.

“Was afraid I would get food poisoning”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2011

Old diners always have a certain charm, but I would prefer that charm to be a bit more...clean. The place in dingy and unclean, the service is slow, and the food is mediocre at best. Would avoid in the future.
