    Brightly lit diner serving slightly greasy but definitely tasty food. We’d recommend breakfast for dinner and order any of the omelets.

    Came here to escape the rain, ordered the cheesecake and the hot apple pie. Both were excellent.

    You can get a fried egg and cheese on one of their bagels. Just ask, you'll be so glad you did.

    They had it all going on until I ordered pie. It had mold on it and was freezer burnt. Anything they did well up to that was erased. Their remedy was to offer more pie??? How about a puke bucket?

    Fried chicken was basically a dry carcass. Stay away. Avoid the mashed potatoes too. Lumberjack was fairly good, but the pancakes weren't great. Service/ambiance could both be improved.
