Love it. Nice hometown feel!! Food and drinks are always good. Don't forget to kiss the Moose.
I have lived in Traverse City all my life and it wasnt until about four years ago that I had actually heard of Randys Diner. Heck I used to drive passed it every day and still had no idea. I absolutely love american comfort food, especially when it comes down to omelettes hashbrowns and wheat toast. Now I have to say that the very first day I visisted I immediately became a regular. The service is absolutely exceptional--better than some of the "fancier" places you might go in TC. All of the waitresses are extremely nice and always helpfull. The food is exactly what you would want in a mom and pops diner: home-style cooked everything. Now I eat at Randys five or six times a week and all the waitresses know my name. Sometimes Randy himself will even sit down and eat with me. Great people, great ownership, great atmosphere and great food! I can reccomend Randys all day long.
The food quality is poor. Definitely not local sourcing, unless GFS is local.? Service was immiture AT BEST and I believe this place has been around for a while. Highly dissapointing when there are so many really great places to eat in Traverse City. I will never step foot in their doors again.
Excellent food,services,clean,menu choices,breakfast all day,drinks,tv and smiles
I had a marinated flank steak with a pepper "sauce" and garlic mashed potatoes. The flank steak tasted strongly of vinegar and the pepper sauce was runny with no flavor. The mashed potatoes were soggy and had no flavor. This dinner was expensive and terrible. My friend had a pasta dish and she really liked her dinner. I was really disappointed especially because I asked the wait staff if the flank steak was good and they told me it was.
This place is the go to bar for Craft Beer Fans in the Traverse Area. Not for those on a budget or those who like quiet open spaces. They also have hard cider on tap and will host events for hard cider. For those who want cocktails or liquor the owners opened The Low Bar that is in basement Wed-Sats.
Thought I would try something not on Front Street, read the burgers were different and great. I found seating for one or two (other than the counter) was the first 2 tables in the middle of the walkway. First mistake was to sit at one of these. In hindsight, the first mistake was arriving here in the first place. After I seated myself I felt I sat at the table the staff dumped all the extra menus. Service was minimal and with little interest. I wasn't asked how things were. I would have told them I expected at least onion and pickle on a regular burger since the mustard and ketchup were on the table. A refill for the soda was an afterthought. I guess she was hoping to receive a tip. I did tip, but reluctantly. The coleslaw was served in a covered souffle cup. I felt I should take it to go. Another guest came in with their mother, who was using a walker. I had to move my table several inches to one side so she could pass. I did not mind this, I have been with people who need accomodations and it is nice to have people help out. A few minutes the bus person, a mature woman, banged my table twice trying to put her cart through the other side of my table. Then she just moved the table as I was eating. I found this to be irritating, but brushed it off. I continued to eat my meal and browse my magazine when the bus person decided she needed to pass through again. I guess she didn't move it enough the first time to suit her so she banged it again, twice and moved my table again. She said, Oh, sorry. I got up and said I guess I am done now. I paid my bill and left. From what I gathered, don't go to Randy's Diner two hours before they close, they have too much to do to want to serve you or be considerate. I should've gone to Sparky's or tried the Fleet downtown. If you don't expect much, this is the place to go, but the price is not in line with experience.
Huge burgers, great soup, Awesome food!
Good variety if burgers and more
