Great food, super friendly staff. I never had to ask for a coffee refill as they had a lady that did nothing but walk around refilling coffee. I've never been to a diner with this level of service.

Checked this place out for breakfast, not really knowing what to expect. Found it to be a traditional "diner" but with baseball themed decor. Nothing fancy. But GREAT service, wonderful food, and reasonable prices. Will definitely eat there again.

Meals were great. Service top notch. Philly steak sandwich is incredible. Highly recommend. Prices very comparable to other restaurants. Really like the baseball theme.

Good food, a couple of mistakes. If you want mayo on your sandwhich they bring you a cup of it and you put it on yourself. Do I work here? Still good.
