1st time was great; 2nd just ok

We ate here for lunch one day. The place was packed. However we were seated within 10 minutes. Edith our waitress was awesome. She was fast, efficient, and friendly. I ordered the steak and cheese sandwich with fries and hot fudge sundae for dessert. It was very good. My husband had breakfast... read more

Great ambiance but surprisingly 'meh' food. We have tried on and off for years to love this place but the food (served in a very creative and festive environment) always feels more institutional not like fresh homemade diner fare found in real diners like the ones along the byways in NY and CT.

This place reminded me of an by gone era and my childhood... The only thing missing were the table top juke boxes! The food was great, the portions were enough to even fill my big tank and the service even dispite that the place was packed was very attentive. If you enjoy the simple meals served at diners of yesterday-years,... More

We had a really delicious turkey club sandwich and a great chicken Parmesan with spaghetti. Large portions (that we used for lunch the next day) at reasonable prices.

The Tilton Diner is located right off the interstate in Tilton New Hampshire and is always a welcome sight when going to Laconia for bike week. The food is good and the staff friendly.

One of the ONLY reasons we went for breakfast was the reviews on here and there's not much else in the area for breakfast. We would have been better off eating at our hotel. After a 20 minute wait, we finally sat down, i thought with all the people that we were in for a real treat. NOT THE CASE!... More

This was our first visit and we hope it won't be our last. We are in this area at least once a year. The service was great. The food was oh, so good. And the surroundings were engaging! Bravo!

It's a traditional diner. They also offer some hot cider or something that I order every time as that "hot toddie with butter shots." MMM.

Located right off exit 20 of I-93, the Tilt'n Diner provides both good food and good service at very reasonable prices. I got off the highway mid morning on a weekday for a late breakfast. First, the food. I had an omelet. It was as good as any I've had. A side order of link sausages was very tasty. Beans... More

If you've spent a long day on the road, and just want some simple, well cooked food... This is it. Prices are right. Service is enthusiastic... Never a dull moment.
