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.

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

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

Food is good but service is spotty at best.I must say their split pea soup is exceptional. My wife likes the wraps a lot.

I go several times a month and have always liked their food. Decent salad bar and good service. A 24 hour operation and I have been there for every one of the hours.. lol The whole restaurant has been redone.. Extremely clean place too.

I typically go for breakfast or brunch. Lunches are also good with specials to choose from. The service is friendly and better than you'd ever expect at a diner.
