    Food and menu has unfortunately gone downhill a bit from a few years back. Chicken parm and reuben sandwiches were the highlight of the meal. Very tasty. Meatloaf plate was a mixed bag. Potatoes with gravy were great, meatloaf was very dry, and side of corn... was just that, a side of canned/frozen corn. Buffalo Cauli w/ nashville sauce were pleasantly crispy, very spicy and little else. Under seasoned, and the "blue cheese" dip was terrible, no flavor, gritty texture. Ranch was a little better, thin and also a bit gritty. Crab cakes were quite nice, crispy, excellent texture, and a nice side sauce, but they had absolutely no fish flavor at all compared to many other veggie fish options which may be a pro or con depending on your preference. Tater tots were crispy and just what you'd expect. Rootbeer float was decent. Service was delightful. Friendly, attentive, and on point. In the end, we had an enjoyable meal but paying $115 for the above before tip felt like it just wasn't worth the mixed quality received.

    Definitely make a reservation! I am just outside of the delivery range and have been dying to come here for a while. Trying to walk in on the weekends is pretty impossible (as someone who’s tried once or twice lol), but so worth the reservation! Food is incredible, vibes are so cute, service was just enough :) the aioli with the fries??? Otherworldly. So, so good.

    It was cool catching up with my friend here. However, the mozzarella sticks were old and looked stale. I’ve had them before and to go and they are usually brown and this time they were really white from the outside. I tried the Mac and cheese and it was okay. More on the sweet side which I could do without. My friend got the chick sandwich and honestly, I wish I would have gotten that instead. It was delicious. Service was slow but friendly.

    This was my first time going to this diner. I really enjoyed everything. I had the breakfast slam everything was well prepared and those pancakes omg loved them I opted for the home fries instead of the hashbrowns. My daughter had the “steak” and eggs with fries. She really enjoyed the eggs and fries but was unhappy about the steak. Not because it wasn’t good I believe it was the exception of it tasting exactly like steak because she is not vegan. I thought it was good and had a good texture.We shared an order of crab cakes which are a must and the bbq cauliflower wings were delicious. The server was very friendly and gave good recommendations.I will be definitely return soon.

    Great menu but food came out cold the first time. Second time they brought it was warmer, with the exception of the main item on the dish (meatloaf). Getting the food was slow to begin with so it was disappointing that it took even longer to wait for a hot meal on a cold winter night.

    This place is an absolute must to try out, whether you're a strict vegan or just trying plant-based options. The mac & cheese was creamy and delicious, just as good as I remembered it! I ordered the vodka chicken parm as my entre and was blown away with the flavors and texture of the "chicken". It was so good, arguable better than a non-vegan chicken parm sandwich! I look forward to coming again and trying out their other menu options, including their breakfast menu!
