The Diner began its operations at its current location in 1934.  The original Diner was a Diner car (see pictured right) manufactured off-site and brought in and placed on site.

At the time, this location was ideal because it was across the street from Morris Pumps Manufacturing Plant (see photo below of employee vouchers), later known as Gould Pumps.  The location was unique because it was on the edge of the Baldwin Canal.  Click to See Full-Size Image

The original Diner was named "Grady’s Diner"  and this Diner car operated from 1934-1950.  It was then purchased by the Younis Family and they renamed the diner, "The B’ville Diner."

They love the B'ville Diner and it shows in their commitment to quality, homestyle cooking and plan to continue the legacy of the B'ville Diner.

We thank the local community for making our Diner a true landmark in downtown Baldwinsville.
