First time at Summit Diner and we will absolutely be back! My omelette was made to order and was so fresh. Everyone was friendly and the bill came to $16 for two people and a LOT of food! Original decor and a cozy feel. Would recommend it to anyone.

We just landed from Paris and needed a simple yet tasty first meal and it was just perfect. My 3 children got exactly what they wanted, no problem in customizing and adapting to their particular requests, my wife and I were starving and had a perfect lunch. People very nice and friendly, the check was OK! Will go there again!

I wanted to visit a classic American diner for breakfast and this met every expectation. Huge portions, free flowing coffee and I was asked if I'd like my eggs easy over - made me smile. Made one mistake and order far too much, bacon, eggs, potatoes, pancakes and toast..... Ate about 50% :)

A nostalgic interesting 1930s style diner. But a bit too common/brash for my taste. The food is okay but a bit messy, plopped together quick - simple fare. But not into greasy foods. My objection is the service which was quick but seemed too quick. The cleanliness of the place seemed a bit questionable. The flatware did not give me... More

Authentic diner food. Service is great. People are great. Get there early on a weekend. Bill Parcels and Phil Simms once did a Super Bowl broadcast from here. Love it.

I've been everywhere In the USA and New Jersey Diners remain one of the few institutions unique to the state of. New Jersey. Some diners are formulaic and call themselves diners when they are simply restaurants. The Summit Diner is an authentic New Jersey diner complete with rough edges but terrific food delivered fast, tasty and hot. We have been... More

You may have to wait, you may have to sit at the counter, but it's worth the wait. The service isn't the friendliest, but the food is delicious and the prices are great.

I go to this spot weekly for their soups which are always good, and usually some eggs with mashed potatoes. All that for $6.00. If you want something quick and reasonable it is great. They also have great Greek salads, and fresh sandwiches, and you must try the HILLTOP BURGER- that is awesome in deluxe form, and great coffee. I... More
