“Not much of anything except expensive”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Really convenient off the Thruway but it was wicked expensive and really nothing special. Decided to have the hamburgers to be safe and not have to dig too deep into the pocket. I've got to tell you the hamburger was so thin, I could have gone to Burger King and gotten a thicker burger. Really a shame. Won't bother stopping again.

“Nothing spectacular”
Reviewed 20 December 2013 via mobile

Stopped off Route 87 and saw a lot of cars in parking lot which we thought was a good thing. We ordered basic lunch items hamburgers, chicken sandwich, and cheese omelette. Nothing was outstanding yet one hamburger was not very good. Excellent waitress as she took the hamburger off the bill.

“Good place to stop”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Driving down the NY Thruway, we got off the highway to look for a breakfast place, and this was the first one we saw (going to the right). We were pleased with the quality of the food, the reasonable prices, and the friendly and efficient service. It more than fulfilled our hopes.

“Nice for breakfast”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

We each had a different offering for breakfast. Nicely prepared; cheerfully served. And, we were greeted very happily by all of the other diners. We did have to doublecheck the math on the check.

“Blast from years past with average diner food”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 via mobile

What you will find upon entering this diner, is typical diner decor, done 70's - 80's style. Yes it could use some remodeling but the food is good diner food.
Service is good and the food is good. If you frequented the clubs of New Paltz in the later 70's or 80's, chances are you stopped at this diner after a night out. If you stopped today at the diner for something to eat, I'm sure you would be transported back to those days.
