What a treat! We had never been to this diner although we have lived not too far for a long time. It's not on the main part of Route 22, so it is kind of hidden away. A friend offered to meet us there for lunch, so we didn't know what to expect. The staff was super friendly and seemed... More

The Fine Diner is a locally owned restaurant that features fresh ingredients, interesting selections, delicious fare. The staff are all quite friendly and it is my favorite restaurant in the Clinton area. I am vegan, and Hunterdon County is not a veg-friendly area; but the Fine Diner has some delicious selections for my dietary choices. I love this restaurant and... More

A perfect place and setting for late breakfast. Great menu and such a friendly staff. One of our favorites are the Maple Pecan and the Eggs benedict but you can't really go wrong with their menu. We were a party of five and wanted to share so the waitress arranged half portions for us.

After browsing the wonderful shops of Clinton my husband and I decided to grab some lunch. The Fine Diner happened to be on the block where we were shopping so we stopped in. So happy we did! Lunch was very good and friendly, quick wait staff. As we ate, we observed other patrons enjoying omelets. After inquiring we discovered they... More

This is one crowded place, that locals love to go to. So, be aware that parking is tight and you most likely will have to wait to get a seat. They are also open only until 3 p.m. and closed on Mondays. We have eaten breakfast and lunch here. My favorite by far is their french toast. We have had... More

I've been several times. Twice I wanted breakfast and was denied. They close the breakfast menu at 11:30. Reason stated is the kitchen is too small to accommodate preparing both breakfast and lunch. The place is called The Fine DINER. Diners serve all meals all day long. Very disappointing. Other than that, the food is good. I'm a bit of... More

The Fine Diner was fabulous. Great food, great service, all around well worth venturing off the turnpike for! Will definitely stop again.
