Nice diner food

My husband and I were looking for a quick bite to eat today and happened upon the Toms River Diner. I am wary of ordering burgers in diners usually, but the "Jersey burger" was really good. Also, the service was good, too. All in all, a nice lunch or breakfast place.

I'm very particular with how I like my eggs cooked and they nailed it perfectly. The service was great. Restaurant is a bit dated and could use some refreshed decor.

Stopped here for breakfast on the way home from the shore. 70ish style, really needs an update, half the bulbs in the lighting needed to be replaced. Tacky fake flowers strung between booths. Looked dark and dingy. Food was okay, French fries fresh and crispy, coffee tasted burnt. I've had better diner food.

I come here by myself for steak and eggs in the morning, the steak is great, the bill is under 10 bucks and the waitress and hostess are so nice. This is a nice NJ diner, proud of it!

My brother lives in Seaside heights and we always go to the TRD when I visit. The owners are friendly and oblidging. The food is great and I just love a diner feel. You dont get anything like this in Florida. Mike, George, Mom & Dad, keep up the good work, hope to see you soon!

Great food and service! Piping hot coffee! Their homemade corned beef hash is simply outstanding and with the closing of Mustache Bill's, it's the only place you can get it in this area of the Jersey Shore! Ask for Lynnie for the best possible service; tell her Richie sent you!

If you live in Toms River, you know TRD means the Toms River Diner and you've been there more then once. More than twice. More times than you can count. Good for late night after drinking, a nice quick morning meal or lunch- good and greasy. A little expensive, but everything is these days.
