This is hands-down the best diner I've eaten at. I very much enjoy diners, so I try to eat at them whenever possible. This diner is close enough that I'm able to enjoy it frequently. Everything is fantastic and is in generous portions. This is the quintessential diner experience!

Man, where do I begin? If you are a diner fan, go, but go early. The locals know what they have here, and support it enthusiastically. Hash omlette was out of this world - house made hash, and they are generous with it. My wife's brioche French toast was amazing as well. They serve you water from a bottle labeled... More

I've seen lines outside this diner and decided to try their breakfast. The pancakes were undercooked and I didn't like the taste of their syrup. My friend had the scrambled eggs and hash browns and he said they were very greasy (and it looked it, too). Also, I saw our waitress emptying two different pots of coffee together and then... More

This Watertown diner has the a classic diner look but the menu is huge and it includes gluten free and vegetarian options that you won't find at other diners. It's a cosy friendly place with reasonably good food. But don't try to go here on a Sunday morning unless you are prepared for a long wait in line. Excellent for... More

There is always a line, lots of kids and seats cramped. Food is OK - lots of other places to go but if you live in the neighborhood I guess it's as good as any other

This looks like a typical diner but the menu is anything but that. You can get typical diner food Or more updated selections. Eggplant fries are yummy. And the breakfasts are huge and delicious. The home made corned beef hash is the best I have ever had.. We come here aLmost,every week for lunch or dinner.. Weekends are pretty crowded... More

The Town Diner is a great place. I've had breakfast, lunch and dinner there and can't decide which is the best - it's all good! The menu is mostly comfort food with some healthy/vegetarian options as well. The diner atmosphere is authentic. Service is pleasant and good. Friendly and welcoming, it feels very homey when it's not too busy, but... More

I've gone for breakfast, brunch and dinner (still had breakfast foods). The "hungry man" meal was absolutely delicious: 2 sausages/bacons strips, 2 eggs, homefries, toast and either 2 slices of french toast or 2 pancakes. Certainly never left hungry! But boy can they burn a hole in your pocket. The meals are absolutely well portioned but for the money, there... More

This place is horrible. I went here 10 years ago and remember the dirty silverware, terrible food, and the tricky no prices on the drink side on the menu. I just went again today (not by choice). It has changed. The place got 10 years dirtier, older, and overall much worse. Décor is not classic dinner, its classic dump. Even... More

I took the time to visit the Deluxe Town Diner on the third and final day of my visit to Boston so I guess I'm making comparisons with the other two breakfasts I enjoyed elsewhere. The weather was beautiful after two days of rain and humidity. So I'm writing this sitting on the seat outside the diner while the experience... More
