  • Allison needs to concentrate more on her cuisine than her decore. That was the worst breakfast I ever had. Not sure how anyone can screw up breakfast. The Hashbrowns tasted like shoe polish and the eggs tasted strange. Never will I recommend or eat there again.

  • Order: Eggs, hashbrowns & bacon

  • Food was excellent, did not have to wait long for drinks appetizers, dinner , or desert. Waitress was very friendly and did a excellent job to make sure we always had what we needed.

  • First, I went to Allison's based on these reviews and the fact that it looked new and clean from the outside. I wasn't disappointed as far as the cleanliness and decor was concerned. Very nice. The food and service? Eh. The blue cheese burger was ok; nothing special, nothing terrible. It was certainly edible, but not great or even better than average. The onion ring things (I forget what they call them) were very disappointing. I noticed other servings of the rings going by my table that looked crispy and fresh---mine were luke warm and limp with oil--yuk. I think my server should have noticed, since I'm sure she serves endless numbers of these things. If I had taken note of what fresh orders looked like before eating half of them instead of after, I'd have asked for a fresh order. All in all, the food left something to be desired; the service was polite and friendly, but slow and obviously not very timely---I'd prefer grumpy and nasty, yet efficient and attentive, if I had a choice! Food first; smiles second. I'll give it another try and sample another of Allison's offerings...but I think consistancy may be an issue.

  • Order: Blue cheese burger/ onion ring things.

  • Great to have a place that understands customer service and knows about fresh made food.
    the stay is friendly and the owner talks to everyone to make them feel welcome.
    Don't have to travel out of town to find a great meal at an affordable price.

    Thank you, we'll be back again and again

  • Order: patty Melt, soup/salad combo, meat loaf sandwich, root beer,side of onion straws,sample dessert platter

  • Since my last review Allison's Diner has gone downhill quite a bit. The HashBrowns for breakfast are not that good and the portions have been reduced, the pork tenderloin sandwich has also declined.

    Had Allison's Diner reserve a room for 10 to 18 people for a Saturday lunch.
    Twelve people showed up and 3/4 of them had not been there before that day.
    All had Sandwiches , Lunch Entrees or Appetizers and all agreed the food was excellent.

    PS - For a side dish I always order the crispy onion straws.

  • Order: Pork Tenderloin Sandwich and Hashbrowns
