Stopped for lunch while traveling thru Binghamton. Very simple but delicious lunch. I ordered a grilled cheese, tomato and bacon and fries. Delish! Fries were hot, tasty and plentiful. My friend had a Reuben and even tho we split the fries, there were lots left. Cole slaw was so tasty. Waitress Amber very pleasant and nicely attentive. My only complaint....an... More

Third time we have passed through here in two years. We found this last year on our way to the Hall of Fame Inductions. Incredible menu, I don't know how they do it. Greek food, comfort food (meatloaf etc.), fresh seafood, everything. Amazing dessert case and selection. Very friendly staff that love to chat with you, no pretension. Not in... More

Planned a private luncheon for a high school graduation. approx. 30 people. The Spot was very accommodating, worked with me for a select menu. Treated the smaller members of the family with courtesy and special attention. The food was good. Overall if I needed a room for large informal group again, I would definitely choose the Spot.

I'm not from Binghamton, but without fail over the last 10 years driving through town I always make a point to stop at Spot. It's a classic looking diner straight out of the early 70's. The service is great and the people are very welcoming, but noticeably the food has slipped off a bit, especially for the price. While visiting... More

This was the third year that we stopped at the Spot Restaurant on our trip back to Canada. The reason is obvious - the food is excellent, prices are fair and the staff is both inviting and efficient. Once again we had excellent service and great food. My spouse particularly enjoyed a large serving of their baklavah for dessert after... More

Enjoyed a delicious combo omelet with great service and good coffee. Friendly staff. I love decent diner food and choices and would certainly return here.

It' was mother's day so I know it would be crowed, but stopped into the Spot anyway. I decide to sit at the counter and order the 3 eggs breakfast, scrambled with bacon, home fries and whole wheat toast. The eggs and homes were fine, but the I could not really taste the butter on the toast which was very... More

This place is way overpriced for quality. Go to the Denny's chain instead. You get the same dinner for a third o the price.

Ive been here at least 10 times over a few years (we have lots of restaurants in our area ) the last time I had french onion soup and it was very good...I've had breakfasts and I've had sandwiches for lunches. It has always been good. I think you get a good size portion. There's plenty of room. Lots of... More

The meals seem to priced on the higher end. That would be ok if the food was good but the food is not even up to standards of diner food.
