This was one of my first experiences at an American Diner and it really met the stereotype I have from a UK perspective. You get what you enter the building for with no rubbish. Fast, friendly service, big menu, simple, large dishes, a nice selection of drinks and then off out of the door and into... read more

This restaurant is the quintessential New Jersey Style Americana Diner in a great location. There was a diverse array of menu selections as expected from pancakes to steak. We ordered burgers, a gyro, and turkey sandwich. These items were flavorful, and abundant portions were served. The service was attentive and friendly. The prices were fair when factoring in the large... More

We went to this diner several months ago. After being seated, we ordered 2 drinks: a soda and a cranberry juice. After the drinks came we placed our orders. Both of the choices we made were not available. I don't remember what they were but we never order anything strange. After looking at the menu to find substitutes for a... More

We've eaten there several times now. Consistent food, generous portions, friendly service. This will become our "go to" diner.

Breakfast was served in less than 10 minutes after ordering. Crispy fluffy Belgium waffle. Coffee not so great but hot. Free parking.

So they fast! That is amassing. That is why 4 stars in review. Food nothing special at all, i have mostly eggplant parm, it is execrable. All other food is much to desire for, but it is a diner after all. Hard to do better as average at that speed. There is no river view at Hudson, do not take... More

The portions are large and they have sides included with the price of the meal. It is a family owned business and the daughters of the principal owner... More

Went here with a group of people who are all tired of paying the exorbitant restaurant prices. My friends have been patrons for years. The food is plentiful, the menu extensive, the service is very good and the atmosphere is nice even for a diner. I am not going to tell you that the food is exceptional but this is... More

TERRIBLE FOOD and service. The waitress (older woman, skinny, short blonde hair) was very bitter, impatient, and rolled her eyes at every one of her customers. I asked for a GREEK SALAD with grilled chicken breast, it was hard to chew on every piece because of the fat in it. The salad they served me isnt like any other greek... More
