Monroe diner reopened after renovations . Sorry to say we won't be going back . The corn beef Reuben and pastrami Reuben were horrible. The meat was flavorless . The sauerkraut had a strange taste to it . My coffee was so strong I had to switch to tea. The waitress was helpful and did a great job. So it... More

Over the years it's become mediocre. It's fine for a burger or an egg breakfast. Coffee is hit or miss. The desserts offered for the dinner specials on on the brink of too stale. I noticed they are currently remodeling so maybe they will revamp the menu.

I don't know how a diner can mess up an omelet or a club sandwich, but it happened today. The place looks kind of bomb-struck in certain interior areas , but (as a positive) the wait and service staff were good. We won't be back. Next time, we'll go back up the road to the Goshen Diner for better eats.

Fast and fairly priced diner food. Nothing spectacular but a good variety as expected. Turkey dinner used to be much better, with real turkey - not cold cut.

I have been here many times in the pass. The service is great. The food is average. Location is great. We stopped coming because of the fly problem. We could not enjoy our meal without the distraction. It killed the experience.

Terrible service, unfriendly staff, poor quality food. I even got sick from their breakfast eggs. Do yourself a favor and eat somewhere else. Anywhere else.

I have been eating at the Monroe Diner since the 1970's. Never had a bad meal there. That's rare today. The owners, the Lagakos family, have been serving the community for almost 40 years. They do an outstanding job. The staff is friendly and the service is very good. You can't go wrong having a meal at the Monroe Diner.

Monroe Diner is your average diner. However, in this town, where dining options are limited, the Monroe Diner is most welcome! It's a place that offers your typical diner food where anyone can find something to eat and you just can't go wrong. The staff is friendly and the service is good. I would recommend this place to anyone looking... More
