“Good but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

We stopped in for breakfast. We ordered french toast and omelets. The food and service was good and this is a convenient location. There was nothing especially special about the diner or the food and although we were satisfied, I would want to try something else next time we are in the area.

“Best little diner in the area.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013 via mobile

Worth the ten minute drive from downtown Watkins Glen. We ate there at least six times in a month and enjoyed the diverse menu. The signature brick oven pizzas are very tasty and they don't skimp on the toppings. Daily specials. No meal disappointed us.

“Perfect Breakfast Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013 via mobile

We have eaten here several times for breakfast. Can't speak to the dinner menu, but we like the breakfast. Prices are very reasonable and the breakfast is good. The waitresses are very friendly and service is quick. Nice to find a simple place to eat where the food is good and the service is decent.

“pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

Stopped here for breakfast because it was conveniently located with a large parking lot for the trailer. Hubbys country fried steak was great, my omelet was surprisingly good. Place is clean and service is good. Average prices for a diner. I'd stop again if we are ever in the area.

“Not Much To Choose From In This Town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

We were traveling in the area needed food stopped here. Did get a good bowl of Potato Soup but it was barely lukewarm. Have a lot of pasta dishes on menu. Tried the stuffed shells tomato sauce was over powering. Don't think I would stop here again unless I was in the mood for pizza.
