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.

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...

Food and service was great! A wonderful place to grab a good, hearty breakfast. And, you get a lot of food for not a lot of money!

The Somerset Diner is a fine establishment for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The value is good, the food is good, the service is good. The soups are for the most part excellent!

I stopped in here to grab an egg and cheese sandwich to go, and when I got the check there was a 45 cent "packaging fee". When I inquired I was told that their supplier changed containers and it is costing the diner more. When I asked to have my sandwich just wrapped in paper, I was told that egg... More

This is a reliable breakfast location. I've been coming here with family for breakfast for years and the experience is always the same. Service is efficient (sometimes friendly), the food quality is quite good (VG french toast and whole grain pancakes), the menu is huge and so are the portions. It's clean, accessible, reasonably priced and a short ride on... More
