TYPICAL DINER

Went with a group and the food was OK....no problems but on the way out I noticed a posted "B" on the wall. I am from NYC where restaurants are rated with letter grades and do not eat at places that do not have an "A" rating. In fairness, I do not know if the rating is the same as... read more

The Somerset Diner is certainly an interesting place with fun décor. The food is very good, and the menu is certainly unconventional, offering creative things such as the All-American French Toast*. Just make sure your waiter knows exactly what you're ordering, as I have suffered some mistakes there.

Somerset Diner is one of New Jersey's finest! The side dining room looks like it came directly out of "Saturday Night fever", with a disco ball. The selections are on the menu are incredible. The service is fantastic--worth a trip just to see the personalities. I am a 24-7 breakfast person, but most places do you a disservice when they... More

The Somerset Diner features an entrance ramp that curves around the building. Last year when the parking lot was resurfaced/repainted, the handicapped spots were moved close to the end of the ramp-- previously they were in the back corner of the parking lot. While it is still necessary to cross the parking lot, changing the location of the designated handicapped... More

Somerset diner on Easton Ave. in Somerset (on the way to New Brunswick) is the perfect spot for a tasty sampling of New Jersey Diner dining. Their extensive menu has something for everyone. We had the stuffed chicken Marsala (highly recommend) and the grilled rib steak. The steak was prepared medium rare to perfection as we requested. The chicken Marsala... More

I live close by and come to this Diner a few times a year. The food is always good and the service is great. Large menu with all the items you would expect to find at a Diner.

We occasionally stop here for a small casual business meeting in the mornings. We had breakfast here yesterday and it was great. Our waitress was attentive & brought coffee right away. I had a cheese omelet which was loaded with cheese, just the way i like it. I read some of the previous reviews which mentioned that the omelets were... More

The Somerset Diner is one of the best family diners in New Jersey. The owner (Peter) takes great pride in providing quality, variety and value for your dining experience. Breakfast specials are made to order and outstanding for dollar value. Lunch and dinner specials will delight your pallet and not break the bank. Quality of service is second to none... More

I stopped in this past weekend for a simple breakfast, I ordered 2 eggs "over", hash browns, toast (Rye) and coffee. The eggs were so runny I couldn't eat them and I don't think the cook had any idea what "hash browns" are supposed to be like. My hash browns were cold slices of potatoes' that had been thrown on...
