Great lunch & dinner – Can't remember the last time everything went so well at a restaurant. Food didn't just look great; it WAS great. Servers were friendly and attentive. This new management has turned this restaurant into a great spot in a great location. Menu has a little for everyone and there's even a full bar. Definitely would encourage people to give this place a chance. They won't be sorry!
Awful service (as the previous reviewer noted) – We arrived at 6 p.m., were seated, immediately ordered a milkshake for our child before placing our orders later. We emphasized that the shake should come out as soon as it was ready.
Twentyfive minutes later, the owner (we assume) was making rounds, asking how things were going. We mentioned why our child was nearing a meltdown, and he went back to the kitchen. His lame response was to explain that the ice cream was frozen, and that was causing the delay. He did not bring or offer to bring anything else in the meantime (a chocolate milk for the child? the fries we had ordered after that? anything?). Another five minutes or so passed, and no one checked on us. In over thirty minutes, we never saw our waiter again.
Let's review one thing: this is a diner. Do they not serve more than one milkshake per day? Do they not know the secret trick of running a spoon under hot water to get the frozen icecream out? Lame. Extremely lame.
So we left, cancelling the order. We did leave a dollar on the table for the water glasses.
Will we return? No.
Great desserts...terribly slow service!! – Everytime my fiance...well now hubby and I visited this diner it took almost 2 hours to finnish a meal. The service was definitely sub-par even for a diner. If you are looking for quick nosh this is not the place but if you and your friends need a late night hang-out wihtout being bothered then look no further. The food is decent and the deserts are great, just watch out for slow service.
