We had a nice week in Julian for our summer vacation. We enjoyed many places in town but this one was quite possibly the worst I've been to in a looong time. I had to go up to the register to order, which was noted on a sign so not the biggest deal in the world. It was in a very awkward place though. But then while I ordered our sundaes, the employee helping us seemed very annoyed to be there. I let that slide and we waited at the counter for our classic diner experience. Well we kept waiting . . . . when we did finally get our ice cream, the girl was on her cell phone on her shoulder while handing them over. And to top it off, mine was wrong. I ordered no whipped cream on my sundae. When I pointed that mistake out, the owner/manager was right there and told the girl (sort of under her breath) that she "could not make ANOTHER $6 sundae so convince her to take it that way". So the waitress, now off her cell, asked me if she could just scrape off the whipped cream or if I needed a new one. I really didn't care that much so I said she could take it off. She proceeded to scrape it and all my hot fudge off in the sink in front of me and handed it back. To top it off, the sundae just wasn't worth the bad attitude.

It might have just been the heat and long day, but I was expecting a bit more upbeat, positive atmosphere at this classic soda fountain. Instead we were disappointed by the bored, rude service we received and definitely will not visit there again to try their regular food.

I went here with a school group and they had such a good time. The food was awesome and the prices were quite reasonable.

When my family and I visit Julian, we always make a point to eat at the Miner's Diner. The burgers and shakes are awesome. It's usually very crowded on weekends and so finding a table can be somewhat of a battle since the restaurant is a bit small. Overall, the service is great and the food has never been a disappointment.

We were staying in Julian for the weekend, and decided to have breakfast at the Miner's Diner. It's an original old fashioned soda fountain and diner. It was crowded too, so we had to wait a little while. But the wait was well worth it, we had a delicious breakfast in a nostalgic atmosphere.

This is the best restraunt in town for families. The place is always crowded. It's a great little hometown diner with a fifties feel. They have great food and reasonable prices. They are great and especailly on a hot day for a rootbeer float or sundae.
