Just OK

This diner's food is sometimes good and sometimes terrible. Last few visits it was the ladder. Food came out missing items from the plate or not cooked as ordered. The wait staff is horrendous. Either they don't understand or they never come back to the table. It is on a downhill road.

This typical New Jersey diner is right at the western terminus of the George Washington Bridge which made it easy for us to meet our party of six coming from Long Island last evening. This place gets crowded, so much so that they have valet parking, a first for me in a diner setting. The portions are enormous and the... More

My family and I had dinner there the other night and it was very good. It's your typical diner food but everything was well prepared, hot, served quickly and good size portions you can share or take home. We will definitely come back and do breakfast next time. The place was recently renovated and it's beautiful.

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.

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.

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
