    Diner Burger is ok but didn't worth the price, especially with the French fries who have nothing special. Interesting selection of beer in bottle.

    Apple pie was amazing - not full or cinnamon so you can appreciate the apples

    Nachos-ok Tuna Tacos-excellent. Ordered Apple Pie Al Amode with a check. Waited longer for dessert & check than for dinner! Waitress hung out at hostess stand, bar, leaning on wall. Worst service ever

    This place is terrible. There are a lot of authentic diners in the area with real diner food. The menu here is trying to be "hip" but nothing is as good as what you would get at a real diner.

    The Irish bourbon is a mans drink. Something sexy to start the day. I highly recommend brunch at this spot. Music is nice and soothing adds to the laid back ambiance#satisfied

    Ordered take out breakfast food here. I don't think I've ever had such a flavorless omelet, toast and hash browns. Ketchup couldn't even save this meal.

    Overpriced for easily the worst diner breakfast I've had in a while. Home fries tasted 3 days old and the hollandaise sauce smelled like buttery mustard. Spend $5 for breakfast at a food cart instead
