Average diner but well-located

I have had breakfast and/or lunch here with business associates several times and its main attraction is that it is very near the George Washington Bridge and easy to find for those coming from New York City. The food was fine, but unmemorable. It's a typical New Jersey diner.

Had a very bad experience last night. Basically I wasn't happy with my chicken dinner and ordered something else, only to have the manager come to my table and harassed me about the situation stating that I was responsible for the bill even if I didn't like it. Paying for the bill was never my problem, another manager comes in... More

The diner was recently renovated. Service was outstanding. The prices were reasonable. I really enjoyed the French Onion Soup. The Pork Chops were delicious.

We went here knowing you will get the typical diner experience which is expected & fine. What we wanted to see was what they did with a ground up total new diner. They did a fantastic job and diner afficionados will appreciate the newness and cleanliness. Homemade soup , a good burger, & we will be back.

we were there tonight and it was really good, beef stew with veggies. Pork loin and baked potatoes! For the longest time there was not a decent Diner in our town, but it will change now if they keep up the great work ! The only that bothered us was the valet parking situation, but I guess it was necessary... More

Attempted to eat at 'old reliable' Plaza Diner only to find it closed and renovations being done. With further investigation, I learned that they were fined by the Health Dept. for various violations. Not sure when they will reopen.

When we were younger we used to end our nights out at the plaza for early morning (2am) burgers & gravy cheese fries. Years later we still go early, only now is 7am for breakfast. Over the years the plaza has been a hang out, a meeting place and a staple. The food is diner fare of the finest quality.... More

Convenient location offering typical diner food. This place has been here ever since I remember and is usually fairly busy. The staff is usually friendly but depending on the time of day you can get some moody waitresses. Diner prices are not cheap any more but at least the food portions are generous. They have parking in the back which... More

New Jersey is the land of great diners. Plaza, however, isn't one of them. The premises are a bit out-of-date/downscale. The food is unimaginative...the basics done basically. The french fries are those awful food service frozen jobs that don't actually taste like they are made from potatoes. Not worth a detour.

Conveniently located, real turkey in the club sandwich, good burger, breakfast, bad frozen fries, professional, friendly service, pretty good coffee. Best part cheap ok wine and open most of the time. Recommend it if its diner food you want and you're in the neighborhood, its late and you're hungry.
