Decent, but not remarkable, food; great atmosphere

The food was hot, the wait staff professional and the diner itself is very cool. Standard diner fare menu. Clam strips were very tasty, but rubbery - but they tend to be. Fries were frozen, deep fried variety. Coleslaw was plentiful and good and not the kind that is drowned in mayo. Husband said... read more

Great tasting little piece of history at the corner of Route 1 and 133 in Rowley, MA. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner and even just a cup of coffee and a piece of delicious pie! Read up on the history of our diner...it was even featured in an Elvis Costello music video!...then stop in. You will not be disappointed!

Not High end by any means, always tons of locals who visit on a weekly basis. The specials are tremendous but don't expect fancy. Solid American food like pot roast, franks and beans and meat loaf among many other choices. My wife and I love this place not only for the food but the ambience of it. Locals and family's... More

Great home cooking, wonderful staff, and very cozy. Great prices too! Can't beat it, especially if you love comfort foods. They have it all!

There always seems to be a crowd at the Agawam but the food is average. Diner atmosphere with booths, counter, and a few tables. Clean and fast service but don't expect anything special in the food department.

Have been going here for years. Place always full. Food is good and served by very courteous waitresses. When you are finished you can look at the large selection of deserts. I always say I am not getting anything but am enticed by some homemade delecy they have presented. Worth a visit. Prices are fair , food is good, hopping... More

I'm visiting friends, and for lunch they suggested this place -- a favorite of theirs for over thirty years. It is small, but worth the wait to get a table. The food? Fantastic. I had crab cakes-- much more crab than cake. Awesome at a great price. The fries were cooked perfectly -- a sure sign that they know how... More

Visiting from England and love your diners. Agawam has great character outside and inside, loved it. Called for breakfast, food and service good, had corned beef hash, eggs etc. Portions not as large as many but did enjoyed. Definitely hope to call next time visit.

We were traveling home from a vacation in Maine and decided to stop in at the Agawam Diner. My Mother had eaten here before but this was my first time. You can get Breakfast all day so my Mom had bacon and eggs and said they were very good. I was really hungry and had a hard time deciding between... More

We had breakfast with my family a couple of days ago and we enjoyed it so much. The waiter was so nice and don't understand why people say the opposite. A classic American diner on the oldest route of the USA, route 1. I think it worths waiting some minutes in line to taste a well done bacon omelette!
