Fantastic and Friendly

I have eaten at what we simply call 'The Diner' many times, and the combination of great food and very frendly service is unbeatable. The breakfasts are delicious, ucnhes fine and the dinner, including nightly specials, are yummy. I would recommend The Union Diner to anyone.

This is no ordinary diner. Yes, it looks like a diner, and at first sight, the menu looks pretty conventional, but nearly every dish has a twist which takes it from the ordinary to the extraordinary. The lobster stew is flavorful and anything but bland. A grilled meatloaf sandwich has a chipotle mayonnaise which gives it just the right amount... More

We grabbed breakfast at Union Diner midweek and had a great meal. I had 2 eggs over easy with toast and hash browns. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the hash browns were great, crispy but not greasy. Union Diner serves both home fries and hash browns and we definitely preferred the hash browns if you had to choose. Definitely... More

Piping hot, freshly cooked, tasty breakfasts (and other meals available) which were the very best that we had in the whole of our 3 week tour of New England to see the colours of the Fall! Smiling, speedy service all in 'old school' diner surroundings and at good prices. Well done guys, it was a real treat!!

We stopped here for breakfast and enjoyed the experience. The typical breakfast offerings were decent and some "specials" were offered...celebrating the Fall Harvest season. Our friendly server was roaming the tables with her coffee pot... keeping the coffee cups "hot and refreshed". This is a nice spot to take in the ambience of a bygone era. Many of the old... More

I live in the area, and visit the Diner as it is called, regularly. Rose, the owner, runs a lovely diner, with great breakfasts and real dinners, complete with nightly specials. I really enjoy the broield haddock, the Friday night AYCE haddock, and the scallops. For breakfast, dont forget the many benedicts .

Came based onTA reviews. Really happy we did. An original diner car, one of only about 100 left of this style in the country. Breakfast is your basic diner menu. Good quality, portions and taste. Came back for dinner for the lobster stew. Thick, rich, chocked with big pieces of lobster. Nice people working and running the diner. Lots of... More

Breakfasts are really good and the service is excellent. We have found that the lunch is not as good however. I was recently very disappointed with a very mundane sandwich. I expected more from a diner. I have also had not so clean silverware. They do have excellent egg dishes though.
