The night before Broad Street, my inlaws, Tim and I decided to head to a local diner. I had wanted to try this diner for a while. Realistically I liked this diner because the outside looked really nice and “diner-like”.
The outside atmosphere is what originally drew me into the Dolphin Diner. It’s a giant blue metallic building. I was thinking (and hoping) they would run with the nautical dolphin theme inside. While there are plenty of dolphin designs, there aren’t as many as you would think! Either way, the outside is nice, and the inside is clean. When we arrived around 5:30, it wasn’t crowded at all. I was actually very surprised, but there are 5 diners within the 10 min radius. The waiter was quite the unique individual. He was very nice and kept everything refilled.
I always enjoy when diners give a bowl of whipped cream instead of putting it directly into the coffee. The coffee was great, and it came with quite a bit of whipped cream. I have no complaints. It was excellent.
The menu of diners is like black holes. You find yourself wondering how on earth they could make all of these different foods. The Dolphin Diner has at least 200 different menu items. I ordered their signature Greek salad with blackened chicken. Due to the price, I wasn’t sure how large the salad would be. When it came out, I was pleasantly surprised. The salad was massive and filled with feta cheese, greens, cucumbers, grape leaves, pita bread, and olives. However, it was missing onions which surprised me. No harm was done and it was one of the better salads I’ve had in a while. Cost: $
The salad and coffee were 14 dollars. I was shocked! The salad was extremely filling. I have no complaints about the cost and the amount of food. It’s one of the best diner deals in the area.
Overall thoughts/Would I come back? The Dolphin Diner is a great diner. I was pleasantly surprised and have no complaints. If I’m in Burlington soon, I will be back.
Cost: $5-22 (the highest end being the seafood platters)
