This is the epitome of a Pennsylvania/New Jersey/Delaware diner. The menu is loaded with favorites -- chicken, meat loaf, steak, pork chops and pasta. Add the sandwiches, soup and the salad bar and you are covered for almost everything you crave. Breakfast is special with pancakes, eggs and coffee at the center of everything (biscuits and gravy plus grits add... More

There are so many fast food places that it is becoming difficult to find restaurants with healthy menus. Arner's offers variety in a generous portion, and a salad bar with many choices to accompany many of the dinner items on the menu. Be sure to check out the pastry counter as you walk in. Eight inch tall lemon meringue caught... More

My wife and I have been having breakfast at Arner's for over twenty years. We recently went there for breakfast and were totally surprised. There seems to be a lot of new staff there and we found that the service was less than what we were used to. We were seated as soon as we arrived and waited for our... More

My wife and I tried Arner's for the first time after buying a reduced price gift certificate thinking it might be a place trying to establish themselves. We were mistaken and breakfast could not have been better. We arrived around 11a and found no wait, and that breakfast is available all-day with many good choices. Our meals were hot, fresh... More

Food is quite good; lots of choices on the menu; service with a smile; good prices. Homemade pies. Great place to stop for lunch while travelling. I do not recognize the photo that is shown here though.

I have eaten here 5-7 times and the service and quality for close to airport dining are both good. Salad bar is clean and fresh. Today I had the stuffed flounder which had a really nice lump of crabmeat inside. Amex, visa, mc accepted.

Great for breakfast and inexpensive dinners. Salad bar and several menu items for entrees, casual and family oriented. Food is moderate but good.

Went here one saturday morning before my flight departed. I grew up in Delaware so i usually set my expectations low and considering this was just breakfast i didnt expect much. We were served by a older woman could assume she had been there since the beginning of time or the since the existence of the resturant. Food wasnt bad... More

Believe the positive reviews. I've been going to Arner's on and off since the 70's, when they first opened. It had probably been 7 years since the last time I stopped in. The food is just as good as the first day they opened. The entire staff is always so friendly. Something you don't find that often anymore. They have... More
