Fast friendly service (hard to come by with the current restaurant staff shortage everywhere) and delicious food! My breakfast bowl was super tasty and they made a special order corned beef hash and cheese omelet for my hubby. Thanks for a great experience! We'll be back!

What a wonderful find today as we were driving around chasing estate sales to locate Lawrence Park Dinor! Charming outside and in, and exceptionally friendly and professional. I had the grilled Reuben sandwich with French fries and a coke. The sandwich was perfect, fries were just right, and the wait staff was very attentive. Made for a perfect lunch! Thank you!


The diner has always been a good place to go and eat. But ever since the new chef has taken the reins, things are incredible there. Fast and friendly, not to mention the delicious home cooking.

What a diner or should I say dinor! This is the only dinor in Pennsylvania on the National Register of Historic Places. The Lawrence Park Dinor takes you back to those memorable 50’s. There are five booths, each of which can accommodate four people. But, in our day in the ‘50s, we could always squeeze in more. There are eight swivel seats on each side of the dinor. The walls are adorned with signs, plaques and photographs of yesteryear. A happy atmosphere and a feel-good place to dine. The husband-and-wife team who own the dinor, were very welcoming. The dinor has a great staff and all were very accommodating. A had a Reuben Sandwich for my lunch and a slice of the Mix Berry Crumble with Vanilla Ice Cream. The pie alone was reason enough to dine there. All our food was very good. No wonder the dinor receives such good reviews and has been the #1 place to eat in Erie every year since 2010 when the owners bought the dinor. NOTE: When leaving the dinor read the sign above the door way.


Had breakfast there this morning — great meal in a warm, friendly atmosphere. It’s a small place, so we spoke with all of the staff and most of the customers by the time we left. Really charming. Would recommend it to anyone who likes a classic American diner.


Everything was amazing. The cook was very sociable and nice. They were a very cohesive team. Service was quick and the best we've had in a long time. It's a restaurant made out of a train car and it's very interesting and cool inside. Well worth the trip! I'd give more than five stars if I could :) thank you!

Visiting Erie with my folks so my mother could tend to her parents plot. Stopped in on the way into town for breakfast and wonder why we have not been there sooner.Nice building and atmosphere. They were busy, but the staff was friendly during our entire visit. I had the Greek omelette and it was great. My folks got more basic breakfasts and also enjoyed them. The Greek sauce had a familiar taste, but with slight difference, that gave it a great flavor. It was a delicious topping for my omelette.It was a wonderful way to start our day.

Stopped in for breakfast while on vacation in Erie and glad we did! Staff was so friendly, you could tell it was a neighborhood spot with regulars. Our food was delicious and portions were more then enough. My husband loved the Greek omelette.

After a surprise at another restaurant, we decided to eat here. We visit occasionally, but haven't been for a while. Food is simple but good. Service is fun and solid. Prices are far from extravagant. Want to eat good food at a fun place that won't drive you broke? Eat here!

Good food, good atmosphere. Enjoyed the Greek good and had a look at the fried bologna, wished I gotten that instead

This place is tiny, but serves big personality and big portions of food. The breakfast was very good, and the pancakes are huge, bigger than a dinner plate. The Greek omelet was interesting, but would have liked the sauce to be a bit spicier. The service was great, there were always refills before I even had a chance to realize I needed one. And this is definitely a bit of a local hangout because 99% of the customers were known when they walked through the door.

My wife and I just had a fantastic breakfast at Lawrence Park Dinor. The food and the service were excellent! I highly recommend the greek sauce (seasoning packs are available for purchase)! We will definitely be back next time we're in the area!
