What a disappointment! I grew up eating here so I knew what to expect but after visiting this past Sunday after 3 years it was clear to see that things got MUCH worse.

1. Waitress didn't speak much english. She was nice and all but couldn't understand her. She was also very unknowing. Asking a question was very painful and what she told us was not accurate.

2. No bread was ever served, nor was our cucumber salads. (Well not until our bill came because we had to ASK for them.)

3. The food was just so/so. Actually, all three meals were a bit dry and not very fulfilling.

4. This place looks like it needs to be bleached down from top to bottom. Actually, it looked like the place hasn't been cleaned since the day it opened and make sure you don't touch under the tables. The piles of gum is just NASTY.

5. You get dessert with your meal, you ask what kind and waitress says jello or pudding. We know pie's were included but it was clear now (a day later) why she may not have wanted to give the pie. Nothing like taking it home, putting your fork into it, it falls apart only to discover the MASS AMOUNTS OF GREEN MOLD. Unbelievable disgusting. How long has that pie been sitting there for it to grow that much mold???

Never again. Just the thought of this place is making me want to hurl.

Beware, this place charges more on tax than should be. Everytime. I visit the diner the tax is not accurate. The owners are aware of this, yet, nothing is corrected. I told the man at the register who I believed to be the owner's son. However, the next time, I went to the diner, again, they overcharged.Noone apologized. In fact, they were on the defensive side, Peter, the owner, asked me if I was calling him a thief. He said it, not me! Also, it is advertised that they have no sugar cheesecake, however, fior the most part, when I ask them, they say "no."

Sherban's is one of my favorite diner's. I don't expect Haute Cuisine from diners. Sherban's gives a good meal for the money. I have been there dozen's of times and have never had a problem.

Bad experiences at this diner...

1) I found shards of glass among my french fries. When I told the waitress, she smiled and joyfully tried to explain what must have happened.

2) When I tried to pay for a $20 meal with a credit card, I was charged $2,000. Though this issue was eventually resolved, it was not easy. The diner refused to give me anything in writing that they had made a mistake and my bill was not $2,000.

3) I asked the waitress for an extra large side of mayo and I received an extra large side of nothing.

4) The waitress sat talking with the other waitresses while my friend and I waited twenty minutes for the check. When I finally went up to her and asked for it, she said, "Oh, you want the check?" Umm, yes, because we've been done with our meals since yesterday!

5) After receiving free refills on my soft drink every visit, I was suddenly surprised to see that my friends and I were charged for all of our refills. When I asked the waitress if charging for refills was a new thing, she said, no, it has always been this way.

6) I ordered cheese fries to-go and received fries without cheese.

7) I ordered one hamburger and one cheeseburger. I received two cheeseburgers. What's worse is that I asked the waitress before I took this to-go order home if she was certain that one was a cheeseburger and one a hamburger and she said, yes. She told me she had checked.

8) A drunk guy from the bar nearby was hassling my friends and I while we were eating and the employees of the diner did nothing about it. I guess they weren't concerned about our dining experience.

9) Not a problem I had...but they keep the cole-slaw and cucumbers in what look like paint buckets. They are uncovered too and so anything could crawl in. Needless to say, it's not appetizing.

Aside from the these issues, the food is decent. I generally stick to the burgers and so I can't really speak about all the food. The menu has some unusual items on it though. I can't remember what they are but if you look at the appetizers, you'll see what I mean. They don't even have quesadilla's. The portions are good, so they have that going for them.

I guess if you pay cash, check your food for bugs, glass and mistakes (like cheese when their shouldn't be cheese), you'll do fine at this diner.

I ate there in their "banquet room". The glasses and utensils were filthy. It looked like they just rinsed them off with water, no soap.

The decor is shabby, the carpeting looks like it hasn't been cleaned in 10 years. I almost fell off of the staircase because of a wobbly banister. The electric lights were flickering the whole time. So, not only is the decor shabby, they have faulty lighting.

The food was pretty bland, but seemed edible at the time. 2 days after eating here, I got sick (violent diarrhea). Probably due to the filthiness mentioned above.

I actually been working at this Diner for years. Iced tea is not 3.50, it's 1.70 for your information. The guy at the door is autistic, thats why he seems rude. He is one of the nicest people I know.

Get the stick out of your @$$, stop lying trying to bring our business down!

the waitresses for the most part seem to reflect his aura. The carrot cake was as hard as hard candy. Iced tea is $3.50!

We were considering having our company hiliday party there for convenience but I think we'd rather be inconvenienced for a similance of quality. There is no level of quality here to speak of.

I usually give a diner several chances before I give up on them and this one has taken every chance and then some.
Here's a list of issues:
Bland food- Cucumber salad is the only guaranteed tasty item.
Overcooked Pasta- I got penne pasta that was mush. I sent it back and you have to ask...when it looks like you took it out of three day old dishwater, why would you serve it?
Service SUCKS: I've had waiters and waitresses forget I'm there, bring me the wrong thing more than once, forget to bring me the check while I wait for 15 minutes after I already got a to go box..

I've decided I won't go back. It seems to be a great place to take your Grandmother though...

The food here is mediocre. The menu is comparable to many other diner menus but it is not that good. The coleslaw and pickles that they give you before the meal are the best part.

Overall they have a pretty extensive menu.. however the food is not that great. I mean I have been to a whole lot of diners and this one is okay at best. They do give you a lot, but do you really need a lot of something you don't want to eat? The place needs a remodeling, you feel like you stepped inside a 60's themed park.

PROS: Quick Service
CONS: Food not that great
