The Lewistown Diner

The Lewistown Diner is located at the corner of Water and Main St. This location was most recently home to Singers, and before that Zimmies, and Mel and Dotties. This location is the site of dozens of forgotten, failed businesses over the years.

The neysayers wil say that the Lewistown Diner is doomed. I don't say that. I encourage people to hang out their shingle, and start businesses. I wish the Lewistown Diner folks well. Perhaps they can succeed where others have failed. If they expect to succeed they need to give the place a good scrub job inside and out, including the hired help.

That place definitely seems to be cursed, but maybe they'll make a go of it.

Lewistown as a whole is doomed, these places will fall with poor overall town mismanagement. Just look around and you'll see its alrady happening.

I see that the Lewistown Diner went under, in less than 2 weeks if even that.

A new place just opened up.

Was just coming here to post that. Drove by there this afternoon and saw a sign that there's a new place "coming soon".

Honestly at this point I wouldn't even try to open a restaurant there. People have to be associating that place (location) with failure at this point.

try another business there. Bad spot for a restaurant. Terrible parking.

I don't know about that. It has much better parking than the Downtown OIP, Trolly Car, etc. and they do well.

Yesterday the sign read LAST DAY OPEN, so does that mean the end to Crossroads Diner already?

When you don't have experience in running a business, don't have money and don't know how to cook stay home. Give it up.

I think if anyone wants to put a restuarant there they should do a mexican place. Why have another burger and fries join when we have Red's, Bing's, BK, and McD's.
