great crabcake benefict – definitely not on the low cal menu, the benedict is ahefty portion of crab a a zesty sauce. Best benefict in san diego. Only thing I'd add would be fresh fruit on the plate

Overrated and Lacking Flavor – This place is overrated. I was so excited to try it and was so disappointed when I walked out.

The food was bland, greasy and overpriced. It was cheap and I was still disappointed that I wasted money.

If you want good food from an old fashioned diner, go to Ruby's Diner. Learn from my mistake, pass this one up.

Outstanding Diner – I have driven past this place for a the last few years in the day time while working. One night my wife and I saw it on Diners Drive in's and Dives. We took the family to give it a try. I ordered the fish and chips. Outstanding!!! very large , and well cooked. My wife had the club sandwich and kids all ate breakfast. Everyone left full and happy. I find that all diner food in southern California has become over priced. For a family of four expect to drop $50.00. But also expect to leave very full and happy.

Average Breakfast; – After seeing this place reviewed on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," my wife and I thought we'd go check this place out. I'm a huge breakfast fan, and the idea of a place that serves breakfast 24/7 is always appealing to me. Parking was kind of strange, as they had a small lot, with most cars parked on the street, though it didn't seem to be difficult to find a spot. We got in and were seated in about 10 minutes. They had immediate seating at the counter available, but we opted to wait for a table. Looking over the menu, they seemed to have a pretty eclectic mix of food. The sandwiches and some of the seafood looked good, but I was craving breakfast. I ordered the country fried steak and eggs, and my wife ordered the crab cakes benedict. When we received our food (after a bit of a wait), we were not that impressed. Certainly not bad food, but then again nothing to write home about. The portions were a decent size, but for the price, I probably could have gone some where closer to my house for a better deal. My wife and I pondered if we had gotten some of their "specialties" would we have felt different. We may never know. Overall, I would say if you're not in the area, or it's not 3am, you would probably be better served going some where else.

Not up to expectations, go to Bob's Big Boy – Went on a rainy Sat. night and was really looking forward to a 40's / 50's diner experience. Service was very slow. Food was mediocre at best, and way overpriced for what I had. Hot fudge cake was overcooked (in microwave). Save your $ and have a much better experience. Go to Bob's Big Boy.

Great Clam Chowder – Cool...I dig the New England Clam Chowder!!

The Real Deal!

Great when the bars close down.

Saw a bunch of Chargers Players after a late night practice session.

They accept all credit cards which is nice.

Best East Coast Style Diner – Wow!! What a Cool Spot!! Studio Diner is right next to a TV/Movie Studio

and it serves breakfast 24 hours a day seven days a week.

I thought it was cool because it's a tricked out East Coast American Diner

transplanted to San Diego!

When I was there the Food Network's Guy Fieri was filming an episode

of his show called "Diners, Drive Inn's & Dives"

I really liked the Lobster Roll and the New England Clam Chowder.

My sister liked the "SamSon Steak" an AWESOME thin sliced prime rib sandwich with spinach, sprouts and garlic with mozzeralla on a french roll!

Editorial Review – 24-hour diner tucked away in Kearny Mesa serves a bustling lunch-hour crowd by day and hungry night-crawlers after hours.
