I had visited the Strand branch of The Diner before, so when a friend and I decided to take another girlfriend out for her birthday, I knew this was the place we needed to go. On a Wednesday around 5pm, the place was empty, which suited us just fine. My friends were bowled over by the massive selection, and we ended up choosing a few burgers and fries (pulled pork and beef, and chili cheese and garlic) for my friends and chicken and waffles for me. And of course we had to start with boozy milkshakes!!! Just as with the food at the Strand branch, it was all incredible. The bacon gravy is pretty much just bacon fat in a cup but I wasn't moaning - also excellent with the garlic fries. I was also very happy to see real Canadian maple syrup on my plate!

Service was a bit slow when we were trying to get our bill but the server was very funny and we had some good banter with her. We would all definitely return - and the birthday girl has since been to another branch!

Very honest and great American food! We found the service a bit too laid back. We really enjoyed the Mexican tortilla starter, the burger and the Philly cheese steak sandwich. The mac and cheese was too much on the dry side though. Would go back for the nice American diner atmosphere.
