“Nice, but a Little Dark and Dirty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

The food came out pretty fast, but the service was a okay. The waiter was nice and friendly, but he was not understanding of specific food details. Our party was big so the fact that there was no issue with seating was good. Overall, this was an average experience and if you are in the area and are limited to options, then this is the place to go.

“You can't really go wrong with a diner right?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

We didn't have much choice on Thanksgiving, but I'm glad I didn't order the turkey dinner, it didn't look at all appealing with its yellow gravy. Waitress was pleasant, but her service was terrible. Slow, slow, slow and forgetful. It took forever to get the food, diners are usually fast. I had to get my own napkins from the counter.

The Midtown II Reuben was ok and so was my Turkey Club. We had to order fried separately because every thing was ala carte. Mine was suppose to come with chips, but they never made it to the plate.

The manager/owner just stared at his guests, no smile, no Happy Thanksgiving. It was sort of creepy.

“Adore this place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

A visit to Philadelphia isn't complete without going here at least once.I love the real,friendly neighborhood atmosphere.the servers are friendly and it's a reliable place to have typical american diner food anytime of day or night.the menu is enormous.I liked everything I had,from pancakes to eggs to meatloaf,hot turkey sandwich,steak and eggs.over the years the only thing I didn't like was the lemon meringue pie.the location is good too.close to the fantastic Alexander inn.

“Recommended by the locals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

Diner style, the service was no nonsense, tough and efficient, not to mention the food was perfect! Loved the diner style atmosphere, hanging out with the locals to grab a bite for breakfast.
