In the late seventies, my dad and I visited Louie’s Diner on Commercial Boulevard in Ft. Lauderdale Florida, and it quickly became our favorite place to eat! With counter, booth and table service, Louie’s became an inspiration for me and I was determined to have my own diner someday. My dad’s influence stuck with me as well – just look for the Dad’s Favorite breakfast on the menu!
In 1999, my dream became a reality! I opened my first Diner on Noblestown Road in Greentree! When my Dad became ill, I lost my drive and sold it a few years later. Knowing my dad would have wanted me to stick with my passion for the diner business, I got back into it when I bought the old Bellevue Restaurant and called it “The Bellevue Diner.” Then, due to corporate downsizing and pretty serious health issues, I really went full-steam ahead and opened in Kennedy Township. As we continue to grow, you will find us in Kennedy Twp, Carnegie, Painters Run Road in the Mt. Lebanon/Scott/Upper Saint Clair area and Grove Road in Castle Shannon.
You will often see me chatting with customers, thanking them for their business and sometimes offering a dollar bill to those who finish both pancakes! I continue to be grateful for the support of the communities we serve and hope we have added a nice little spot for a good meal! If ever I may be able to assist you with comments or questions – please call me directly, Bob Marshall, at 412-922-2176 or reply to our website and I will reply personally.
