What People are Saying about

The Rusty Lantern Diner

“The atmosphere was just absolutely great…”

“I didn’t realize this place was here but my Dad mentioned them so we tried them tonight. Absolutely loved it. Quiet atmosphere, great service, excellent home-style food. We both got the hamburger steaks and loved them. You should definitely try to fried pickles! Plus desserts to choose from. I will be back”

“One of the last…”

“Love this little place. One of the last ma and pa type restaurants.”

“I feel like I was transported to a time long ago…”

“Well as a fellow business owner, if it’s one thing I can appreciate it’s the difficulty it takes to create a certain atmosphere. The business setting, the care people get from your employees, it all plays into what people see and feel when they do business. Well at The Rusty Lantern Diner they did so well with it all. I feel like I was transported to a time long ago when things weren’t so complicated! Nice waitress, amazing food, good prices and of course an incredible atmosphere. It’s a 5 star place that I’m sure took this 5 star owner a long time to build, I can’t wait to get hungry again!” Dan W
