good Jersey diner with a lot of options

My family and I went to Candlewyck Diner for a quick dinner, and while there were some issues, the food was pretty good and prices were adequate. Compared to what I normally think is a typical Jersey diner, Candlewyck is positively upper-class. Of course they have the display cases with cakes on... read more

I go there every weekend and every time I get s great meal and budget friendly prices and always feel like family by the owners and wait staff. They just opened up the outdoor patio can't wait to try it out looks very nice. Once inside you would not believe it was a diner. Great job on the Reno Jimmy... More

We got to the diner and sat down. Our waitress comes over and asks what we want to drink, we say water. So far so good. Unfortunately 65 minutes later of listening to this waitress run (yes she literally RAN in the diner) around with a chicken with no head talking incredibly loud to every table, we finally received our...

We tried this restaurant while in the area recently on someone's recommendation. The menu is extensive, so if you have a hard time making up your mind on what to select you might have trouble. We were satisfied with our meal. My son and I chose hamburgers which there are lots of choices as I mentioned earlier. The food was... More

We had dinner here 2 nights in a row because the food was so good. Highlights in our group were Atlantic salmon, chicken pot pie, and burgers. The salmon eater said it was the best he had had in years. The chicken pot pie had large chucks of chicken, and the burgers were Angus beef on artisanal rolls; mine had... More

I go to this Diner at least once a week. The owners Jimmy and Vicki always greet us with a big Smile and come over to the table to see how we are doing. They have top notch staff and service. My favorite wait staff is Alyssa she is the best. We have never had a bad meal here or... More

They asked if they could change the channel to watch another sport event being that there was 3 TV's showing the same game. When they received the check each were charged .33 cents... More

This restaurant has kind of a family restaurant / New York Deli kind of feel. As you enter it has a great looking desert display that definately gives it the Deli feel but the decor and menu gives it more of an American family restaurant feel. I ordered the Pot roast sandwich with a salad. The sandwich was delicious and... More
