I've been to The Dive twice and also have mixed feelings about it. Personally I liked their Dive Burger but, as the review noted, the soggy, oil-soaked fries were barely edible and nothing I'd eat again. They would go back to the kitchen if I got them like that again...
I also had breakfast there. Some of the intital turn-off were extremely greasy plates and silverware (even the other set of silverware on the table appeared not to have been washed). I though the coffee was barely drinkable, and the home fries were so-so. The omelet, however, was very good.
And I will say that the server (the same gal both times I was there) was very nice and attentive. So, good burger, good omelet, great service. I'm just not sure if that's good enough to outweigh the negatives. It has been over a month since my last visit and thought I'd give 'em some more time to get their food preparation squared away. Looks like I may need to wait a bit longer as your reviewer experienced the same thing my wife and I did. Well, here's hoping they can work things out and survive...I'd like to have an independent litte diner near by.
