3rd St. Diner Restaurant Review

: The 3rd St. Diner offers Fifties Funk and you’ll find a mishmash of favorites on the menu, including American, Italian and Greek (as in an omelet with feta, lamb and onion). Expect everything from Southern fried chicken with mashed potatoes and broccoli and salmon burgers to chili and a grilled donut with ice cream. If you can’t make up your mind, just order breakfast any time with the likes of steak and eggs, egg sandwiches, french toast, and biscuits with sausage gravy. Décor reminds us of days gone by and the food, of times gone by. There is a bar and a very abbreviated wine list, and root beer floats look right at home next to the Long Island iced teas.
