This is definitely not your typical diner. The decor is very nice, with a domed ceiling painted with retro food and appliances, like blenders, steaks, etc. The menu is completely a cut above in terms of choices and fresh, healthy options. We were a fairly large group with very different tastes, We went to have lunch at 2 o'clock on... More

Americana diner is the best diner in New Jersey. Amazing amount of excellent choices. I had the lamb with couscous just the other day. Was cooked perfectly, couldn't be happier Highly recommend the food at this diner. For breakfast the turkey hash and eggs and potatoes is extraordinary

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I have been going there on a more or less regular basis (a few times a month) for about 5 years.. Most of the time, I just have a fresh turkey sandwich. The menu changes often and sometimes I enjoy the seasonal food but the turkey sandwich is what keeps bringing me back..... More

5-6 (or more) years ago my review would be different. Then they changed their menu and tried to make it a gourmet diner. If you're looking for "regular diner food" you won't find it here. My friend and I went there late at night and just wanted a grilled cheese... Not a single one on the menu. Nice part is... More

Since we live close, the Americana Diner is one of our go-to restaurants. The food is fresh and delicicious, always fresh and interesting. You can always have breakfast which is also fantastic.

We eat here about 3x/week. The dinner menu is limited and a little upscale...and they serve alcohol. Late at night I'll order eggs & toast so I'm good. On the few occasions I make it there at a decent dinner hour (8PM) I've had their entrees. They're good. The menu changes periodically. Because we go so often we know which... More

We used to got to Americana a couple times a week with the kids years ago. It had good food at reasonable prices. Now the prices are so expensive and the menu is so limited that we don't go anymore. The food isn't that good either! They should get back to basics and be a diner again! All the families... More

We were road tripping up the Hudson on the weekend and stopped here for dinner on the way up. Starting from my delicious flavoured Martini and my partner's Rosemary and Lavender tonic (non alcoholic) through to the lovely share plates we ordered - sliders, tacos, sharing platter. We were too full for dessert. Though Tim did order a coffee and... More

On our way back from Manhattan my wife and I looked on Tripadvisor for a place to eat and came up with the Americana Diner. My only tiny complaint is at the bottom. Though they have a decent online reputation I usually look at the negative as well as positive comments for kicks. My take, it is more expensive then... More

Had dinner there last night after a day running the Toughmudder race. I really wanted a steak but they only had a sirloin on a sandwhich. I chose the stuffed cabbage with French onion soup to start and it was super good. Great atmosphere, service was delightful and they got super busy while we were there. Great upscale food.
