Just so-so

We definitely weren't blown away by this diner, considering all the diner choices in NJ. The diner is very old-school with outdated decor. It has a salad bar, which is nice when it comes with your meal, however it's extremely small with very few choices on it (there are unlimited rolls though which... read more

We've been going to Horizon for breakfast for a few years and have recently added them for dinner. This diner is a well kept secret. Located in a great location on route 17, you might pass it as you exit for Lake Street, the sign has fallen down. The food is like home cooking. For breakfast their pancakes are one... More

I Should have known by the empty parking lot to keep on driving. 7pm on a Sat. night and place is empty, not a good sign especially when all places around it are busy. Thought I'd take a chance anyway, that was a mistake. Very small menu (for a Jersey diner) and expensive. Didn't stay long enough to order because... More

This was on the list of places my friends who are local in Jersey had to take me! I ordered the Almond French Toast. This french toast was absolutely to die for! Crunchy almonds on French toast covered in powerdered sugar! The bread was nice thick slices. The waitress was friendly and the food was great!

The first thing that stands out about the Horizon diner is the atmosphere. The decor is unique and it has that "old diner" feel. The service is also exceptional; my coffee cup was never left empty. The menu has the typical diner food, but the quality is what sets it apart. Quality ingredients are used and the meals are always... More

We stopped by the Horizon Diner on a recent trip through NJ. We had brunch and were very impressed by the efficient service we experienced. Seemed we had 2 nice steaming cups of coffee on the table as soon as we sat down! Our brunch dishes arrived very quickly after ordering. I loved the mushroom-mozzarella omelet, served with delicious home... More

Had the chefs salad. Was very good but bill was 12.80 plus the tip. I had water so if I had ordered a drink I would have ended up paying almost 17 bucks for a chef salad and a drink. That's almost high end dining prices, and as I said, its just a salad.

If you like breakfast and especially home fries like I do, this is a great place. Order them really well done and you'll be really pleased. Coffee and everything else is good too, prices are reasonable and the staff is competent and friendly. NJ diners, you gotta love this stuff.

We stopped here purely from passing and so glad we did. We had a huge breakfast which was all perfectly cooked, very tasty, and lovely people to greet and serve. The breakfast was less than half the price of what we were paying in Manhattan and for twice as much. The coffee was very good too and I am a... More

In the 70's and 80's the Horizon Diner was the place to go for diner food in the Ramsey area. We decided to revisit it last Friday night. If we weren't so hungry we would have walked out! It was nearly empty for a Friday night. The decor is very dated. The bathrooms weren't the cleanest. Our waitress was not... More
