I have been to this diner twice; once with Liz, J&T and then just with Liz. We were on our way back from Mom's and Liz was starving so I decided to pull into the diner for a quick bite to eat. The place has the typical diner items and diner layout. When we walked in we couldn't believe how dead the place was. Only three other tables of customers....more

During the day light hours it's perfectly safe to walk around the city of Newburgh, however once the sun goes down, I don't recommend walking around the city of Newburgh.

Fondest memory: I am politically involved so when Mayor Audrey Carey became the first female black mayor in the STATE OF NEW YORK, I was ecstatic! I felt like had ownership of this beautiful city and could help it along its path of rebirth! I also hold dear the many evenings I sat along the river with my boyfriend watching the moon rise behind the mountains and flames flicker from a fire he lit to fry the fish he had so proudly caught!
