When in the area it is a great local stop on Rte 22 East. Just passed Martine Ave. this local stop provides great breakfast and fast lunch options for any traveler or local resident. We stopped here twice, once for a breakfast and another time for lunch. Both excellent choices, friendly staff and good food. Stop for that quick meal... More

I have been to several diners and this one is still the best one for me when I want eggs and pancakes. Although there is nothing special about diners in general, this one has great coffee. The servers have always been friendly. Portions are generous.

A very generic type diner. Nothing is to terrific or bad. For a quick bite a little bit better than fast food . Service is hit or miss.

I've eaten at many diners over the years. My advice to everyone is just order a burger, club sandwich, or an omelette. Anything above that you should expect to be disappointed. The best place to get a chicken parm dinner is at an Italian eatery .ie pizza place. A great place to get a nice steak is Spanish Tavern not... More

This is your typical NJ diner. We went for breakfast and had a really good breakfast. Our waitress was attentive and the breakfast food was excellent. The eggs were just right, good potatoes, and great rye bread. Have never been there for any other meal, but breakfast was right on the money. Right on Route 22 East in Scotch Plains,... More

We eat at Scotchwood almost every Sunday after church. Our party ranges from 4 to 10, and the management always accommodates us. He now knows us, so I call ahead when we are on the way, and he gets our table ready. Rarely do we have to wait more than a few minutes. Most of the wait staff knows us... More

Three of us ate lkunch there today. All ordered something different. Food was delivered reasonably promptly and both looked and tasted very good. The only complaint was that the waitress, for most of the meal, was out of sight. When we wanted refills of our drinks, we had to ask another waitress to find ours. Same thing happened when we...

After several average visits, we were served bad meat. They did not look surprised , did apologize but still charged us for it.
