Every dinner food item tasted like a frozen TV dinner. The cole slaw was the saddest thing I’ve ever seen. I think it was just old mayo with a few chunks of carrot? The pork chops fell apart as if they came straight from the freezer, I basically ordered pork chop gravy.The only positive is the price, but considering the food likely didn’t cost more than $3 to prepare it’s still overpriced.

Had the chicken parmigiana. It was okay, nothing special or spectacular. Noodles were very dull and flavorless, but chicken was exceptional. I didn't bother eating the garlic bread: it was just a toasted hot dog bun


I would give this place 5 stars just because our waitress, Ruthie, was so sweet. However, the food was also good too, so they truly earned it. My dad said the tuna melt was scrumptious.It is train themed inside, so if you are train lover, it’s neat to go just for the pictures.PS- Ruthie is you see this, I hope you get to see Cher someday

Just a nice diner very accessible and orders comes quickly if you at that hungry. Food is okay typical diner not too bad for the price of food you typically order.

Our server Kim was really nice and attentive. She asked for feedback and was fast on refills etc…Good things were the prices, friendly staff and roomy dining area. The Turkey breast is real, and sliced and she says everything is made in house, but I have my doubts on the mashed potatoes, which were good but no lumps. The potato filling is tasty and cucumber salad pretty good too, even though I normally don’t like the creamier style, so good job.. Cream of asparagus soup, not so great, but I did eat it since I was hungry from a long hike. Overall, it was pretty decent and we left with a $32 bill, so not bad at all. I couldn’t finish it all. Good place for comfort food and typical diner menu. Desserts looked great but was too full to try any. I’d definitely go back.

Great efficient waitstaff and the best breakfast- available all day! Daily specials are delicious. Stop to enjoy the old steam engine pictures! Oh, and bakery!

Cafeteria like food. Wasn't bad but wasn't great either. I got the Turkey dinner and I liked it. Maybe being from Texas the food was different.

We stopped here for breakfast. We found the diner was clean and dividers between each booth.We were seated promptly and our server came directly to our table for our drink order. I had a mushroom omelet with cheddar cheese (an additional charge) home fries and raisin toast. This is the only diner we've been to that serves raisin toast. My partner had eggs,bacon and toast. Everything was quickly served and as ordered. Good coffee. Daily specials. Breakfast served all day. We will definitely be back to try some of their other menu choices.

Great American diner. The food is great and so are the prices. It may have dated decor but the food is very good.


We came here for a late lunch. We were looking for a local diner that wasn't too far away. Lots of parking and had a good local feel. Unfortunately we came at shift change and we got missed for a bit but they remedied that soon enough. We ordered their club sandwiches, the turkey and chicken salad varieties. They came quickly enough and they were very fresh and excellent. Despite the rocky start between their food and the service we received afterwards we enjoyed our visit here and would come back again. Only note is they are not 24hrs currently.... need employees apparently.


We like to avoid chains on road trips, so we stopped here for its all-day breakfast menu. Yes, the prices are less than McDonald’s, but so is the food quality. My omelette was dry and over-cooked, and my daughter’s toast was moldy. We won’t be stopping there again.

This is not one of my go to restaurants! I went because friends of mine invited me, they love this restaurant. The restaurant is clean and the staff is very friendly and engaging. I find that the food is tolerable but not the best tasting. The prices are reasonable and there's plenty of parking.


My friend and I decided to stop here for a quick bite. The salmon was great, as was the veggie and rice. We topped our meal off with cheesecake topped with both cherries and blueberries. The staff were professional and attentive. This is a place I will go to again.

Let me tell you, we had a not so pleasant experience at an Airbnb, so when we got to Front Street Diner in the morning…it was exactly what we needed! The whole experience was amazing! We were seated quickly…our waitress was fantabulous, the food came out quickly and was so good! We loved how our waitress got our sense of humor and played along with us! Mentally and emotionally…it really was what we needed to get our spirits back on high!

I had breakfast with a friend I hadn't seen for almost 50 years, when our server (Ashley) found this out...she said take as long as you like. Great server, checked on us MANY times.The reason I gave a 4 instead of 5 was the "home fries" were just like sliced, boiled potatoes?!
