The Penn Queen Diner and Restaurant has been a local family owned establishment for 45 years.
 In 1964 three men had a dream; in order to make this dream a reality they risked it all and purchased The Penn Queen Diner and Restaurant. Zane, Nick and Angelo spent the next few decades working diligently; their quest for excellence in the restaurant industry demanded a hands-on approach to quality and service. In order to accomplish this goal they maintained 15-18 hour work days.

The Penn Queen began as a 119 seat facility and over the years has transformed into a 260 seat establishment with plans to remodel in the near future. In addition to traditional dining we also accommodate large groups of up to 100 people. We take pride in the fact that the quality of our food and service has not wavered over the past 45 years. This dedication to our customers fuels our desire to strive for excellence every day.

Nick and Angelo have retired and Zane is the sole owner today along with his sons Tom and Nick and his son-in-law Manny. Any time you visit the diner you will find one of these gentlemen there. All of us at the Penn Queen continue day in and day out to make your experience as enjoyable and pleasant as we can. Come in and try one of our platters and see why it’s the quality and quantity that counts at a reasonable price.
