Our go-to anytime restaurant

This is a wonderful example of a true New Jersey Diner. Wonderful staff, wonderful food. We've had dinner for two at 7pm and Lunch for 25 on a Sunday afternoon in a snow storm. They always accommodate no matter the size of the group or the occasion.

Not often we visit a diner but this was a good one. The menu was extensive and the waitress very helpful. Each day has a page or two of specials and a guide is very helpful. We got a good meal...tasty, large portions, not expensive. And they let you bring in your own bottle! Something we miss from our Somerset... More

Ate breakfast here several times last weekend. Food was OK. Companions did not like the potatoes served with breakfast. They do serve you a lot of food.

First off save room for dessert or take some to go...The desserts at SD are excellent!! The plate servings are huge so come hungry. Lots to choose from and you won't be disappointed.

It was our first time trying this diner. Heard from a lot of people how great it is and finally, one day, we decided to check it out. The atmosphere was nice. We were seated by the bar and everyone had a smile on their faces, always great to see that. The waitress that we had was suchhhhh a pleasure... More

My wife and I went for a breakfast meal. The service was attentive. Asked several times whether our meals were satisfactory. Ambience was attractive for a diner. Minor concerns which by he way I did not divulge until after my meal was completed. 1- potatoes were under cooked. 2- The toast was brought out several minutes after the meal arrived.... More

My visits here will be (very) limited because (new) management is not very client friendly. (Day) manager (Dimitri (?) part owner) is "making more money" than he did while working for Peter, former owner, and he "does not care if (clients) are unhappy." In quotes are his words when I made my first complaint in 25 years. Complaint was centered... More

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... 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.
