Good ole Jersey diner experience.

This diner gives you the total diner experience that New Jersey is known for. What ever meal you are there for, it will be a wonderful event. The food is always tasty and enjoyable. The only downside it the server gave us the wrong check and came back to give us the correct one. When we went to... read more

For Sunday morning Jersey - diner breakfast, the Blue Swan Special hits the spot. Dinner choices are typical and not very exciting, but if you're going there to have breakfast for dinner, that's a winner winner.

We dropped in because we were hungry after having had an early dinner and being out all night. This was the only place available. The place is clean and does get many customers. The food was good average diner fair.

I guess the owners are ready to retire back in Greece, amassing their fortunes from their 40 odd years in business and have taken their eye off the kitchen, the service and the sanitation! Complicent and lazy, they idle away with overly expensive, tasteless food, and reluctant slow service. Overcooked breakfast meats, decent hash browns, hard as cardboard toasts (once... More

This place is a dated drag. The food gives dinners a bad name, the prices reflect a real restaurant, and the service is even worse. We were in for dinner, and it took so long that it began to feel like a fourth meal. Soggy sandwiches, flat fries, mashed potatoes that probably tasted better in the box. Total disappointment!!

The diner was very clean and very well maintained. I ordered a corned beef on rye which came with a pickle... More

For breakfast you just cant beat the eggs served here, always excellent, dinner I recommend the turkey, a very simple dish that many places are not good at serving, pre cooked lunch meat is the norm, not here its real turkey off the bone and it tastes great. one major problem is they charge for a second glass of soda,...

It's an old fashioned Diner with modern everything, and the air condition was working really well. The food we ordered was delicious we couldn't complain about that. The coffee was great the muffins were great the meat the eggs everything tastes... More

New Jersey has more diners than any other state in the Union and most of them are exceptional. This one is off the charts. Their menu is huge, as are their portions, their food fresh and freshly prepared and their prices very good. We liked it so much that we are there twice in three days. Their individual lunch or...
