Description: US Diners™ is an online dining community in the US. It's a restaurant search portal for consumers to easily find their favorite restaurants with online coupons, menus, gift certificates and more. It's a platform for restaurants to showcase, to promote their establishments online to a large, fully targeted audience.

The website serves about 400,000 restaurants across the US. I provide 80,000 restaurant menus. Restaurant members can get a user id and password to access the account management area where owners can update restaurant information, issue online coupons, set up/update online menus, view performance reports. Consumers can register to receive special offers from local restaurants. But it is not required to use the services.
