Went here for breakfast for Father's Day, which is why I gave it an average rating. The diner was very crowded, as expected, but we were seated in short order. Food arrived in a timely fashion, but was not very hot. Given the day, the service was good, but the food did leave something to be... read more

food was average at best, service was OK. This was a late night staple years ago. We had lunch and were really disappointed in food quality. We ordered basic burgers and sandwiches. Sandwiches were meager, burgers dried out small patties, cold fries. There's much better available. It was disappointing as we went out of our way to go here while... More

First off let me say the decor needs some improvement. Secondly the food doesn't really stand out to me it is your typical diner and typical diner food not much choice to really make it stand out from the rest. I went there and ordered the steak medium rare and when they brought it out to me i was expecting... More

Though the Diner was not teeming with patrons at 10 a.m. when my friend and I arrived for breakfast, the staff was so noisy that I wish I had brought ear plugs. The bus boys threw dirty dishes into wash basins with such force that I expected breakage galore. Waitresses sat on bar stools conversing with each other without regard... More

I went to the River Edge Diner the other morning for breakfast and am shocked at some of the bad reviews. I had a very good pancake breakfast with the nicest waitress who was straight out of central casting for waitress's in diners. She could not have been any more pleasant or jolly. The pancake and sausage breakfast I had... More

I found the River Edge to be just fine. Our waitress was pleasant enough and checked up on us appropriately. Our breakfasts came reasonably quick and were done to order. Prices were also reasonable. I would return.

While I'm glad that it sounds like you enjoyed your meal enough to return, I'm disappointed to see that your overall impression was just so-so. I'd love to know what we could do to earn more stars in your book next time, and I hope to welcome you back to our place soon! Take care, George Siderias, Owner More

Missing some good diner food, I chose this place for my birthday with my family. Our waiter seemed to sigh with every item ordered, which was the sign of things to come... Their salad bar is really poor, and on our visit at least, items were not fresh at all. The chicken wings were clearly the worst I have ever... More

I can't believe anyone would give this diner a good review. Anytime I've eaten here has been more than a disappointment. The majority of patrons they get here are local seniors who don't want to travel for good food. Their salad bar is a disgrace. I work with the board of elections on local elections and they order from here... More

Wow, first, I'd like to apologize for the delay in getting back to you -- we're just now getting active on TripAdvisor, but it doesn't feel right to not acknowledge a bad review, no matter how long ago you left it. I am so sorry to hear that you had several bad experiences with us last year. We are always... More

Occasionally, my bandmates go out to eat after a gig. This is the second time I have visited the River Edge Diner. The first time, last year, was a disaster. I ordered a grilled chees with bacon, very crispy. The bacon was barely cooked and all fat. The onion rings were awful. They tasted as if they'd been in the... More
