I love this place. It's a great find. Great atmosphere and homestyle food. I enjoy the easy going, friendly and efficient staff. They have regulars and it's like being at the diner version of the old TV show Cheers.
Today waste second time I had eaten here. The first time we got breakfast to-go. They were fast and our food (bagel sandwiches) were great. Today, however, was a different story. We arrived at 12:05 and were told it would be a small wait for our party of 3. That small wait turned into 25 minutes. There happened to be a man sitting at a high top table who was waiting because he wanted to be sat at a booth! The staff did not as him to move in order to free the table for our party so we waited for 25 minutes for nothing. We were sat at 12:30, and placed our order immediately (we obviously had ample time to look over the menu while we waited). A kids hot dog, a burger and a meatball sub. Come 12:55, we still did not have our food. It seems that along with the miscalculation on the small wait, our server neglected to tell us that a 12 person carry out order had just been placed before we got sat. The kitchen in this place is TINY, so it makes sense they got behind. What doesn't make sense is why they decided not to inform us. Our food can out at 1pm. The meatballs appeared not to be homemade, and my burger was grossly over done and dripping in grease. We also had to refill our own drinks. I want to love this place. The decor is adorable and it should be a hidden gem. If we didn't have places to be, maybe I wouldn't have minded all the wait. But I feel like efficiency and service are not at all this place's strong point. And after all that wait, to be served over cooked food and what tasted like Subway meatballs, I was severely disappointed.
Good food. Good atmosphere, and a heck of a lot less crowded and expensive than if you make it all the way to the shore to eat. This place reminded me of eating breakfast on the farm. Glad we found it on our way back to DC from Ches. Beach - try it out. As long as you're not expecting the Palms, i think you won't be disappointed.
