Good Family Dining

Typical family restaurant with good food and average service. The menu is huge so it offers a selection for everyone but unfortunately it menas that they don't specialize in any one great dish. We enjoy it all the same as it doesn't break the bank and it beats a chain restaurant any day of the week.

This is my favorite diner in the area. The prices are reasonable, the food is good, and the specials are awesome. I usually get the duck for eighteen bucks. It comes with soup, salad, vegetable, starch, coffee or tea, and an unreal dessert of your choice. I've never been disappointed. I have to say, most of their soups are the... More

I've been eating at this diner for over 25 years and it remains a staple in the community as well as a local hangout. As diners go, this is one of the better ones, with a wide, varied menu where you can get anything from a snack to a full meal. Staff are friendly and helpful, particularly the mainstay server...

I have eaten at the Croton Diner hundreds of times since moving to this area in 1972. I can honestly say that I have never had a bad breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Pete and his family deserve the highest marks for providing so many great choices combined with excellent and personable service.

Great service and good food; a bit expensive since it's in an expensive town. I prefer the Bypass Diner on Welcher Avenue a bit further north.

We went for breakfast on FAthers Day. It was crowded but we got a table right away. The eggs and French toast were very good. Enjoyed it!

We went back to the Diner a couple of times now, and can't believe the amount of food and the quality of it, for the prices the charge. I'm becoming a fan of the place. Soup, Salad, Main Course and Dessert depending on what you order for under $20.

I took my family to the Croton Colonial Diner and left stuffed and satisfied. My gyro was delicious as was the matzo ball soup and caesar salad. My wife's feta, spinach and mushroom omelette hit the spot, and my son's eggs florentine tasted good. All in all, the diner was packed on a Monday night so that should tell you... More
