My sister and I went for breakfast to celebrate her birthday before going shopping for the day. We told the waitress it was my sister's birthday and instead of receiving decent service or even a smile or a friendly attitude, it was just the opposite. The waitress did everything she could to ruin our time. The food was SO delayed coming out, the order was wrong, everything was cold, and the waitress was nowhere to be found. When we finally tracked her down, she was arrogant, rude and defensive, snarly and nasty. It wasnt even crowded, just two tables were occupied in the entire place! The waitresses all congregate and gossip and talk and curse about the customers and groan and complain loudly when anyone tries to get their attention. They are too busy going outside to smoke or leaning over the counter talking to the cook. The food is not worth mentioning at all, eggs are rubbery, toast burnt, you get the picture. The sandwiches are a fortune, too and the cake is supposed to be homemade but isn't. It's a tourist trap, with the name and decor as some kind of phoney nostalgic theme to get people in the door. The trap part is right, they are just after your wallet. Even the rest room is from another era, old and junky, just like the waitresses. And the owner is never there and has no interest in customers except when he is counting the cash they fork over. Save your money and go someplace else, even a diner is better than this dump. Hey! Who's on Third Deli? Three strikes you're out!

My husband and I ate here for lunch while visiting Spring Lake. The prices were a little higher then we expected. I ordered a turkey club sandwich and the turkey was so dry it basically crumbled off the sandwich. I had to add lots of extra mayo just to be able to swallow it.

My husband however had an open roast beef sandwich that was pretty good. The potato salad and coleslaw were also excellent.

If we ever visit Spring Lake again, I think we'll try another place for lunch.

Excellent food: nicest pancakes I tried anywhere. Friendly waiting staff.

Baseball theme is done well with the entire who's on third sketch printed in the menu. Unfortunately they take the menu away after you've ordered so you can't read it all!

Fun, sports-themed atmosphere and great food. Come hungry! Nice for that big breakfast or lunch on the go. Will positively return again.
