Review of Emmy Lou's

Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 March 2016

Emmy Lou's is this tiny little hole-in-the-wall restaurant that you can easily overlook but don't. The staff is so friendly and the food is quick and delicious. Their waffles with tons of fresh fruit will fill you up so you don't eat the rest of the day!

Emmy Lou's is tucked in the back of the Amsterdam Post Office and accessed off of Main Street right along the Chuctununda Creek. It is an old diner car and hasn't had many updates in the 60-70 years that it's been there. The staff is friendly and the service is pretty good. The walls are covered with pictures of old wrestler celebrities that visited during their stops to the former Hall of Fame located next door. All the standard fare for breakfast along with hot coffee and a friendly chat with the employees, most of which are family.

This is your typical small town "train car" style diner. They are open limited hours breakfast and lunch. Absolutely the FRIENDLIEST service you will get anywhere. I travel a great deal and have eaten in dives and fine restaurants all over the US, Canada and France and I receive the friendliest service at Emmy Lous. The food is your typical diner style food (but for Amsterdam Brownies fans from the old days you CAN get a Mexican Hot with meat sauce AND fries with gravy here!!!) Breakfast is great, service is very quick and its cooked to order. The best part is hands down, the friendliest service around. Its a mom and her daughters and we frequent Emmy Lous VERY often.

If you want a great breakfast at a great price along with some great family owners then come here, It is cute, small, compfy and friendly. You will typically see all sorts of people there as groups. They are so friendly and the food is just great. Nice portions cooked properly and very tasty. You cant beat this place in Amsterdam!

This place stinks. Not only is the food gross and undercooked, but it's expensive!! The place is dirty. They buy inexpensive food from places like save a lot and then turn around and over charge the crap out of it. It's not worth it going here to eat. There are better places in amsterdam to eat at.
