Hollywood Diner was clean, service was good, food was good, value was good. Not much more to say, but I need tt write 100 or more characters. When we are in a strange area we try to eat in a chain restaurant, as we usually know what to expect. We were going to go to one, but the wait was... read more

This is a beyond a typical Diner. Stopped in there after my lousy visit to Super 8 for breakfast. Usual decor in a diner,but bring your appetite, The servings were enough for 2 people. Everything was cooked perfectly and served hot. The waitress Ruby was an absolute doll. Couldn't ask for a better place to eat. Open 24/7 which is... More

Had the fish & chips. Very good whitefish - no complaints whatsoever. Done to perfection.On top of that, the "chips" (french fries) were some of the best fries I've ever had. Very light and tasty. Don't know how they did that. For the same price as fish & chips just about anywhere ($9.99), you also get a vegetable of the... More

My Fiance and I came here for a quick meal before heading out to do some shopping. The entire wait staff was awesome. They were so welcoming and very helpful with the menu as if was out first time there. I ordered the french toast and my fiance ordered a scrapple sandwich, both were great. Not fantastic, but pretty darn... More

Looking for a place to get a breakfast menu at dinner time, we tried the Hollywood Diner. Our favorite, Kirby & Holloway's, burned down. The home fries were very good, the ham slice was good, and the scrambled eggs were good, but not soft scrambled as I had specifically asked for. The Belgian waffle must have been made with very...

My wife and I stopped in at this dinner later one night when everything else was closed, not expecting much. However, the service was quite pleasant and the food was great! Huge portions... Great taste. To me, this diner seems to be what the big chain "Silver Diner" seems to be modeled after, which tells you that is good!

I have eaten breakfast at the Hollywood Diner several times. The food is okay but nothing to shout about. The service is hit or miss. The last time i was there the serve was okay but the previous time the waitress decided to go sit in another room and talk to someone. Then it was no service. The food is... More

I love diners. They are almost always hospitable, friendly and serve up good food at reasonable prices. This one meets all that criteria and more. The classic chrome exterior and the retro hollywood interior always gets me in the mood for a good dining experience. Big menu covers all the basics and everything is available 24 hours a day. Service... More

Very shiny outside! Breakfast was good (poached eggs done right). Varied menu, good prices, order delivered quickly, large portions. A nice lady named Trudy took good care of us. Not great, not terrible - but just right...pretty much the definition of a diner.

Many diners are good values and provide efficient service. Our recent experience at this Route 13 diner did not meet either standard. The biggest problem was the slow and inattentive service on a late Saturday morning when there was not a crowd. Side dishes listed on the menu as included (cole slaw, pickle) were not brought with the meal and... More
