The food was great as always. Server was very friendly and attentive especially since we had three young children with us. Fried chicken is second to none. A good drink selection. Soda pop for the kids that doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup. Our leftovers were taken home in a cardboard container and a brown paper bag which I prefer over plastic and styrofoam. We will continue to dine here.

The food was great. When we first got there they tried to sit us at the bar for Mothers Day. It took some complaining, but the owner stepped in (and some of the wait staff) and found a way for us to have a table. Then they were extremely focused on us having a great experience. The service was excellent and we had the waffle, the two eggs breakfast, and a cobb salad and all were fantastic.

Food was delicious even though there was an unexpected shorter menu for Mother’s Day. We had dinner after USC graduation .. they took us earlier after I called directly and accommodated more of our guests. That combined with the food made for a great evening. Chicken and waffle was very good as was the meatloaf. Thank you!

If you have a special “grit” supplier why embarrass them? Grits were lacking...no salt, pepper, and watery. Cmon...add some cream, salt, and pepper! However, the topping for the shrimp and grits were good. Hate to eat at a southern restaurant that serves grits lacking their heritage .

I can not say enough good things about BLD! Sean the owner, the Chef and staff are incredible! We eat here at least twice a week. I have a unusual corn allergy and for my birthday they went out of their way to created a special meal and cake! Thanks again for always providing great service and excellent meals!

Food was excellent and a little different than what you would expect for breakfast but in a very positive way.

Would definitely recommend.

A diner with fresh and flavorful. We ate outside. The patty melt was delish and my salad topped with grilled salmon was modified for gluten-free and lactose free. The BLD Diner was a great neighborhood find!! Enjoy!!

The food was not great. Very bland. The service was slow. And very pricey for what they offered. Bill was 60$ for 1 lunch 1 dinner and 2 kids meals. Do not recommend!

My husband and I visited from out of town and decided to try BLD for dinner. I’m glad we chose it! It was a great experience for us. We had the fried chicken dinner and shrimp and grits. Very satisfying and full of flavor. We also shared the spicy boiled peanuts which were delicious as well. Oh, my favorite was the collard greens! Compliments to the chef and staff. We’ll be sure to tell our family and friends. :)

Everything was great service-wise and food-wise - the only issue was that they were out of a lot of things our table tried to order. I understand that being the case with some things on the menu, but being out of biscuits, etc. when that’s a signature item in a lot of dishes is kind of hard to work around for customers and waitstaff. Otherwise the food was great and the service was great too!

I love BLD Diner. I always get the best service and you can tell that they really care about their customers and their food. It’s always top quality. Whether for brunch, lunch, or dinner it’s always worth going. From comfort food to a new spin on your favorite, there is something for everyone.

Great food. A bit expensive for essentially burgers and hot sandwiches, but the portions are pretty big. The BLTD was awesome, and my husband enjoyed his burger. It was actually fairly slow, and we were in and out within an hour. Will definitely return!

I had the shrimp burger and it was delicious. I thought the prices were high for the menu and I’ve heard the same from other people who have eaten at your restaurant. I will eat there again.
