I enjoy myself here everytime I go. It was a little busy but to be expected during the holiday season. Parking can sometimes be a challenge when it is busy.

Definitely one of the better diners for breakfast !!! Food was terrific, service was good, and meal came out quickly. Reasonable priced for two people to eat. Coffee was good!!! Definitely a good place for breakfast.

This was one of the better Bergen county diner...no longer. Just had brunch there...food was poor to fair. Ordered matzo ball soup...matzo ball had no flavor and the soup was straight out of a jar/can. Had a bagel with lox...was expecting the typical out of package, not fresh, but even for packaged smoked salmon it was bad. The wife had... More

I grew up in Bergen County. I moved a few years ago, but my parents are still stuck there until they retire. They always go to the Tom Sawyer Diner when they do not feel like cooking. When I come home to visit, that is where we go and have gone for years. They remember you, and it feels like... More

Not fans of diners, but our son's choice and he was treating. Attractive outside/inside - not the typical 'chrome everywhere' look. Friendly staff. Efficient server. Fair prices. Food arrived within 10 minutes. Corned beef hash w/2 eggs over medium & home fries: hash crisp w/ actual pieces of corned beef, real potatoes and perfect eggs (no pre-frozen stuff). Husband had...

We were on the way home; it was close to 6 PM and since it was too late to start dinner, we decided to stop at The Tom Sawyer Diner. We’ve driven by this diner many times but this was the first time we decided to stop & have something to eat. The diner is located on Ridgewood Avenue close... More

Stopped here while driving home from Williamsburg, Va. The diner doesn't look like diners in Massachusetts....This is right off the highway and easy to get to. Parking if busy might be little tough. We were greeted right away and the hostess was very nice and friendly. Our waiter came right over and took our order. Our meals arrived within 10-15... More

Nice portion size for lunch. Mom enjoyef enjoyed hers. Mine were a bit on the sweet side. Would choose something else next time. Service was attentive... More

We went to Tom Sawyer's today and got breakfast omelets. I got the Italian and my boyfriend got the New Yorker. They were delicious and they gave us heaping servings so we didn't leave hungry at all. Our server was nice. Good diner :)

We eat here when in the area have noticed the service slowing of late. While crowds are nothing new there appears to be a change of staff. If you are not in a hurry please stop by. I usually have a wrap or Ruben sandwich. The turkey dinner is also very tasty. A nice stop after shopping at Paramus Park... More
