You know how you walk in to some diner's and you just get really grossed out? Or the service is really, really bad? This isn't the case with the Nautilus Diner. You walk in and your first thought is often, "Wow, this is really nice."
They aren't a chain diner and while they are close to the colleges in the Towson area they aren't the closest diner so they aren't as crowded with drunk kids and have a nicer ambience.
They are open 24 hours a day with a large menu of items to choose from. And you can order anything on their menu any time of the day. There's a smoking section but it's in an enclosed glass room, so those sitting in the non-smoking section don't have to deal with the second-hand smoke.
They get really busy during "peak times" (breakfast from 6:00 to 9:00, lunch from 12:00 to 3:00 and dinner from 5:00 to 8:30). Sunday's are especially busy because of the church crowds. I recommend going in one of the off-peak times if you want to check them out.
Reasonably priced good food.
