An old style diner with a nice view onto harrison lake.
When you're in a small tourist town, and the bulk of any restaurants extend only to a maximum of one block from the hotel, you probably would be less discriminating. Actually, this what was my friends and I were looking for, a small, no frills, local area diner.
All of us ordered the mainstay breakfast dishes: french toast, corned beef hash and a couple orders with a little bit of everything. Homestyle touch with presentation but the food did the talking. Eggs were cooked right, crispy yet not greasy rough hash and complimentary beverage topup. It was our friend's order that seemed less bang for the buck but mostly because the rest of the dishes were ample.
Very small staff manned the floor and though we beat the morning rush, it started slowing down fast as more diners shuffled in. Friendly persona made for an easy going experience but they get bogged down easily.
Small town diner meant no over the top decor. The simple, effective, unpretentious and comfortable surroundings plays on the local ambiance and it's their simplicity that gets good marks.
Disregard the numerical ratings, as rest assured this is exactly what one should be looking for when you're out of town, and they played it to the T.
After rethinking my review on this restaurant, I have decided that my first review was very generous and the restaurant was not as good as I had made it sound. First, I have to say the service was still great, I just misjudged everything else. The food was good but not great. A thin omelette with two types of vegetables for $9.5 isn't the greatest deal. The portion was big, the hashbrowns were good but I could have made this at home for cheaper. Now, this was a little diner, so it's not expected to be stunning on the inside and it wasn't. That is why I give it a 2/5 for ambiance. I'm not saying that I hated this place, but I'm saying I was wrong to rate it so high last time. I might go there again in Harrison because it is still cheaper than every other restaurant, but if all the other restaurants were the same price as this, I wouldn't go here. The service was great, everything else was just okay.
