    Besides having great food, coffee, and music...they give a military discount. How cool is that? Thank you Trolley Car Diner for caring about our military. Highly Recommend this place. Love it.

    Love the Trolley Car! Corned Beef Hash and eggs are legendary. Milkshakes are worth the wait. Sunday Mornings are busy and the service is often slow, but the food never disappoints.

    Great hoagies, with homemade potato chips. Cobb salad, Belgian waffles. Fish and cheddar grits are surprisingly good (for non-southerners). Still waiting for them to undrstnd the concept of hot sauce.

    Almost too many good choices! Try the bison burger breakfast style (served with crispy house-made potato chips) for an unusual treat.

    Fun place. Good atmosphere. Good food. It's not your old school diner, but it has the benefits of those. Grab some Evil Genius beer on the way out.

    You expect good home-style cooking at a silver diner, and they do it up right (butter 'n all). But the Trolley Car also has an amazing variety of vegetarian dishes. Check our guide for recommendations Read more

    Old-school diner with a retro feel that serves a variety of great tasting food. Their milkshakes are the bomb!

    The corned beef hash was so good with over-easy eggs. Surprisingly good Bloody Mary, too!

    The milkshakes are great and large enough to split with that special someone. Ask about the featured flavor of the month.

    Love the water ice, ice cream and milkshakes in the summer but generally find the food to be pretty unappetizing.

    Service was just alright, food was the same. Went for breakfast on a Sunday morning so maybe it was the rush getting to everyone, but cool atmosphere! Would give it another try

    Ask for the home fries to be well done. Much better taste and texture!

    The kids’ menu features chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese; adults can choose non-standard diner fare like a veggie grinder and Maryland lump crab cakes. Read more

    Just learned that they won't let you customize the paninis. It's a shame, I wanted to try the pepe rosso with tomatoes instead of peppers (I'm allergic) and wasn't able to
