I have eaten here on several occasions for breakfast. The portions are generous; the menu is interesting. The food arrives quickly and hot. The wait-staff is pleasant. The prices are reasonable. It has been consistant. I believe it is one of the favorites for the locals. The only downside is that... read more

Perhaps it's because I have spent so much time in norther Virginia, where everything was built much more recently, but this place looks old and run down. They also put their money into cameras but still do not have WiFi.

Nice menu with some healthy options. Clean comfortable diner. Definitely worth a stop. I can not recommend the corned beef hash strongly enough. It's house made and totally delicious. The staff is friendly and efficient. As diners go this one is awesome.

Went to the diner with my family the other day. Normally when we go, the food is ok, the service can be good/bad depending on the wait staff, although you are seated quickly. I'm 7 months pregnant and my husband asked for ginger ale...easy request, right? The waiter assured us that they had it, and everything was fine. The drink... More

I agree with other reviewers that the corned beef hash is excellent. The service is very fast and they keep the coffee coming. The hash as a little bit of a kick to it so just giving a heads up if you don't like spicy food. they also offer a grilled tomato with your breakfast which was really nice.

4 of us stopped in on our way back from New Haven. Cromwell Diner is sort of retro-cute diner-y looking, with an extensive menu. Unfortunately, my friend's eggs had a bunch of hair in it. When he complained to the waiter, he was expecting a replacement to be offered, or perhaps a refund. No such luck. The waiter just shrugged... More

I met a business partner here yesterday and the dining experience was great! I was impressed with the wide open space and the quick service. I had the grilled chicken Cesar salad and it came real quick. Plus, the chicken was done so well that it practically melted in my mouth, not something I experience often at diners. Even the... More

We recently went for dinner, both of us having the chopped steak and mashed potatoes. The flavor of just the meat was fine (but not the best we've had). The steaks were really well smothered with onions. The mashed potatoes and dark gravy were excellent. In addition we had cole slaw and broccoli, both well prepared. There was no bread... More
