Moving on, the East Bremer Diner! (4.5 Stars)

We don’t think we could have said it better than Bob did in his review on TripAdvisor, “The East Bremer Diner is a place to have a delicious meal in a quiet setting without a big price tag. Had a tasty prime rib meal with delicious (bottomless) salads (both their specialty) with their own salad dressings,” Bob shared.
