Our party of six managed to score two small booths for breakfast at this small restaurant. Service was just OK. Not very friendly. Our table commented that of our waitress (a beautiful young woman) should learn to smile. Food was OK. Home fries were good. Had to ask for coffee refills. Our other table had a good experience and raved... More

I keep returning to the Knotty Pine as it does the basics the best. Great breakfast and great lunch...nothing fancy but the basics are done so well. The home fries are the best! It is a very comfortable and welcoming place. If you are a single, you will feel welcome here sitting at the counter. They will even offer you... More

My girlfriend and I recently vacationed to Boston (we stayed in the suburbs of Boston however) and wanted to find a late night diner to eat at. Well, we searched the Internet and discovered that Boston only had one 24 hour diner left, and the suburbs didn't seem to have much else to offer. Then we discovered the Knotty Pine,... More

It's a cute little diner- very small, but the food is great and the service is fast. Perfect neighborhood spot.

A neighborhood diner with Greek flair. An old fashion counter where the coffee is hot and the muffins are homemade. The pies are baked on site. A great place for an early breakfast with no frills. Kind of Norman Rockwell'ish. A nice find in Auburndale section of Newton, MA.

The Knotty Pine is the last of the real diners of this great country. Loui's in Lower falls was on of the greats as well. The working mans dining room. America has drifted so far away from reality that we havent even noticed where our kitchen went and where we sit down with one another and eat. Where people know... More

Having recently moved to the neighborhood, I'm glad we have a place like the Knotty Pine. It's a place where pretension is non-existent, and you can just feel comfortable and order some comfort food. You'll find all the breakfast favorites you'd expect, for very reasonable prices. The quality is not gourmet, but it is better than you would find in... More

I was staying at the Indigo across 95 in Newton and asked them for a good breakfast place. They didn't even need to think before they said "go to the Knotty Pine". It's a nondescript entrance so you need to make sure you find the restaurant name so you know where to go. Luckily it's at the end of the... More
