Trip Advisor Led Me To a Good Meal

I love a good Jersey Diner, and TripAdvisor said this was a good one. it is. I enjoyed the large menu and the friendly service. I was solo on a business trip, but the waitstaff made me feel at home. The "famous" spinach pie really is famous for a reason.

Our first stay in Absecon was to attend a wedding. We chose Phoenix Diner and it was a good choice. Wow what a huge selection. There was five of us and not a complaint. Food was good, price wss right and our server was great.

We went 2 days in a row for breakfast. Food is well cooked and super fast with a good staff. The omelets are really good and filling. All of their menu including dinner look good and the place seems to do well. A little pricey for breakfast though. $33 dollars for 2 people is a little steep. Rating would be... More

We ate there for breakfast... The whole staff from the hostess to the waitress were friendly. We were staying at the Harrahs Casino in AC and were told about the place while at the Casino. Its 10 min away and easy to find... The food was inexpensive, good, and fresh.... We also learned what scrapple is lol :-)

Breakfast is pretty good. Pancakes are yummy. Lunch and dinner are ok. Burgers are pretty good too. Dinner is hit or miss.

Huge selection including low fat and low carb meals -- all at a great price. Warm, friendly atmosphere with super service. Note to self: If you're trying to stick to a diet, don't even LOOK at the delicious Baklava! Great find on a business trip.

It is bad enough that they play "Delilah" on the radio...but loud, distorted, static ridden Delilah is unbearable. Staff says the control is locked in the office. Don't come here. Staff can't be blamed. This is management.

Stopped for breakfast, it was nice. Stopped for lunch/dinner, it cost too much, half was cold, shrimp overcooked and they did nothing to fix it. Took too long. Very disappointing. For $70 for 4 people, will NOT go back.
