While meaning well, the current owners have not raised this greasy spoon to the level of a Triple D worthy review.

Great for typical comfort-food style cooking. Been here for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Always satisfying. Don't understand the negative reviews... go for eggs over easy, mac-and-cheese, meatloaf, or a burger--typical diner food--and you won't be disappointed. Staff is fast, friendly, and patient. Children are very welcome.

If you like blue cheese & burgers then you experience when the 2 come together is even better! The flavor at the Diner that day was unbelievable after my 1st bite of their "Big Blue"(I believe they call it?)!

But if you pick the right dish you'll love it. Fun surroundings, great shakes and eggs Benedict, I'd order blt before I'd risk the meatloaf and I've never dared order a salad but that's not what you eat when you come here, breakfast good and some odd dishes. Saw a guy slurping up a chipped beef on toast, I use... More

I grew up in Baldwinsville and The B'ville Diner was the place to go...now I think people just go there for convenience. They should really look for other local diners and eateries...this place has gone way down hill. Tables are sticky and gross, staff is nothing but unfriendly kids just looking for a buck. Maybe would be worth it if... More

Not sure why we've been ignoring this place. Negative reviews? Less than spectacular food in the past? But avoiding it we have. Decided to give it a(nother) try last night. No issues with service (sat instantly, menus-drinks-food delivered timely). Extensive menu with decent prices. Ordered chicken and biscuits, turkey dinner and a basket of fries. All served hot. And the... More

Went in for dinner on a Sunday evening. Took the kitchen 30 minutes to bring us our food!! This is the second time in the last month something like this has happened. The last time our waitress warned us that the kitchen was so backed up that the wait would be 1 hour!!. Thanks to her we took our business... More

I know this place is always busy, I don't get it?! We've been in B'Ville for 20+years and we've tried this Diner probably 2 dozen times or more for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The breakfast food is always greasy. Very greasy! The people are always friendly and provide great service, but the food, albeit it's a Diner, we've given up... More

We visited Bville Diner on a Friday night for their fish fry. The fish was not good. The coleslaw was not good. The french fries were not good. We ordered the dessert (carrot cake) thinking how can dessert not be good - it wasn't ! Never again.

Local diner with nostalgic atmosphere. Food is a bargain. The diner is clean, staff are attentive, and its great experience for very casual family dining
