After an awesome dinner at Fleetwood last night, we returned to check out their breakfast. The food was great and the staff is perfect. They all help each other, your coffee and water stay topped off, and they're super nice to the customers.Previous review:Erica took care of us and was wonderful. We tried Fleetwood Diner for the first time because my wife was jonesing for mash potatoes and gravy and Fleetwood looked like it might do the trick. It did. She ordered the roast beef and gravy and it was off the charts, even Guy fieri's charts! The servings were very generous and we both got mashed potatoes she got the beef gravy and I got the chicken gravy and we shared and I give them both an A. The cole slaw was perfect, super fresh, as was my wife's salad, and the homemade Greek salad dressing was simple and lovely. We will be back to this hidden gem!!! We thanked the two gentlemen doing the cooking; they are right up there end you can see their whole workspace and I just can't believe they did all that with with a relatively small space.

Really good food!! We ordered a mix of breakfast food and dinner food, all which was really delicious, the only issue I had was that the biscuits and gravy is a little too much gravy, but seriously, everything was so delicious!! The stuffed French toast was the best we've ever had!! Great little diner, I'm pretty sure we'll be back!!!

I went once two years ago and ordered a steak. I was extremely disappointed as it was 1/4 inch thick.I have heard numerous people say this is a good place and decided to give it another try. This time I went for breakfast and ordered the hippy hash breakfast with gyro meat. It was delicious! Would definitely go back again. Just stear clear of any steaks

Great gyros and hippie hash as usual. Nice to have outdoor socially distanced picnic tables under a tent though seasonally bad for bees. Wonderful online or paper menu options. Fast service.

Great feel... Felt like I was on a movie set. The classic look and atmosphere of the old classic diner was great. Our service was awesome. The food was amazing and price wasn't too bad. Only rating it a 3 because it's still a old diner but was a GREAT old diner. Definitely coming back.

Of the hundreds of times I've been to Fleetwood, I think maybe once I've had a bad experience, and it was easily remedied and if memory serves me correct, it was of my own accord.You want the best diner in ALL of Lansing? Go to Fleetwood

Good place to have an American style breakfast. It's a 50's style restaurant. Portions are great. Only feedback I have is that the menu carte was kind of old. I would suggest to use some disposable paper menus .

My dad and I were out trying to diagnose a noise in my car and decided to stop in for coffee. The food around me looked so tempting that I tried to convince him to eat, but he already had breakfast. Once we're allowed to socialize and go out again, I'm immediately returning to this place. The staff was friendly and kept our coffee topped off. The hippie hash also looked delicious. The fact that it was steadily busy and was filled with all types of people is encouraging and speaks volumes about its food and value.

I got some hash browns. They were excellent.

Often I will forego some of the fancier dining establishments in Lansing to make the trip over to Fleetwood Diner. The menu is extensive, the food is reasonably priced and delicious. I've tried to replicate the hippie hash on my own many a time, but it's just not the same as sitting down at my favorite booth and getting a hot plate of hash browns, broccoli and feta cheese.

Review №35

Service was quick. Food portions are huge. My eggs for Benedict were right on. Hollandaise was mildly creamy with bright citrus flavor. Multiple styles of hash available. My man was not impressed but he ate most of his meal. Tables are small, dinner style so don't let plates pile up. Things come on plates to be served but consolidate where you can. Hot Tea came with lemon and real honey with tea bag on the side. They way it should be.

Review №54

Tonight was my first visit, the food was disgusting. I had the turkey dinner with mashed potatoes and fries fries. About 60% of the fries were edible, the rest were extremely burnt and to hard to eat. The mashed potatoes were weirdly half cold and the other side hot. They seemed very over boiled, the texture was off putting. The turkey looked like lunch meat from the grocery store. The stuffing was bland and cold. The wait staff were friendly. But the whole time I was in there they were talking about Meth and their arrests. The picture I'm adding is the food I didn't eat. Never in my life have I left so much food on the plate. I didn't even want to bring it home for my dog.

They open at 5am. The people responsible for opening were in the parking lot at 5:15 hanging out. Tried to come come in 5:30!! They finally decided to go in the building and do there jobs and we went to go in and they yelled they were closed.... If you are going to change your hrs of business at least freaking post it. Ugh!!!

One of the few diners in the area that is open late. Our waitress was great. Onion rings were crispy but not burnt. Thr ranch is homemade and perfect for the rings.Got the biscuit & gravy platter. This goes up against Bob Evans. My friend got the Hippie Hash, which looks good for what it is.Remember to tip the cook on the way out!

We hadn't been here in a while. We enjoyed coming back. There were 3 of us. One had the bacon cheeseburger with onion rings, another had the roast beef dinner with mashed potatoes and a vegetable and the last meal was the fries that had chili, cheese, scallions with sour cream and salsa. Our waitress was good and made sure we were taken care of. One of us got a piece of strawberry/rhubarb pie to go and it was very good.

One of my very favorite places, though I have only been there twice because of my crazy schedule. They were two of my very favorite days. The first time was right after I got married. I took my whole wedding there! Today, I am going into labor with my last little baby girl! Thanks for making my memories delicious!

Review №72

I'm a long time customer and I usually order to go. The customer service was not great tonight and after not ordering in awhile, I received two of the most inedible/basically raw cheeseburgers along with what looked like charred left over hash browns soaked in old grease when I asked for well done hash browns. My husband and I just threw it away. We won't be back which is sad because there's not much on the south side and this place was always so good!

Review №73

Wow! Had the absolute, hands down, best service by waitstaff. (And the food was great too). They know EXACTLY when to refill coffee! Love this place! You will never be stuck waiting for your check either! Seriously, this place has their timing down to a T! I tipped 40%. It's that good!

Review №74

Food was great for mine and my daughters first time there eating, but the waitress we had probably didn't get our food to us fast enough since it was cold. Except my daughters which is probably what she was waiting for instead of just giving me and my husbands food when it was hot and ready. I hope next time I go it's actually hot.

I've been here several times, because it's open 24 hours. The wait staff is very friendly, and attentive. However the food is just kind of mediocre. Each time I go, I get something different. The burgers are usually dry, just as the Reuben was. I ordered stuffed French toast and it looked like someone threw up on the plate. So far the best thing I've had were the egg based dishes, and the hashbrowns. I'm not sure if it's just the cook at night or not, since I've never been here during the day, so if you go at night and need something to munch on get some egg based breakfast items, or some fried foods. Other than that, you'll probably get a bland dried out meal.
