Have been here several times, and considering the location, it is always packed! Even so, we are seated right away, get wonderful service, and don't I've to wait too long for the food. Coffee is always refilled promptly and the food is delicious. Every time I've been here they have had awesome specials, but I still want to try everything... More

What a wonderful discovery! Enjoyed a delicious midday dining experience with fresh, locally sourced items & a range of choices that combined traditional & inventive fare. Worth a detour if you're in the vicinity & a must if you are staying locally.

A very interesting menu with well described choices, carefully prepared from fresh and locally sourced ingredients, makes this place consistently great! They only do breakfast and lunch, but offer some brunch cocktails and a beer selection, as well. Thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast skillet and omelettes we ordered. They were served with freshly baked bread and homemade blueberry jam. Just delicious!... More

Great food, and reasonable prices. We had two breakfasts and one lunch. The lunch was two crab cakes, and I mean crab cakes, not crab mush, over a salad. It was delicious and so reasonable. Breakfast was the same. Good food. It really is "homemade" from the breads to the jams. What more could you ask for? I say, don't... More

If you are looking for a great diner in New York State, it would be worth every mile to go to Phoenicia and eat at the Phoenicia Diner and really treat yourself. From breakfast to dinner, it is the best diner I ever ate in—and that includes any state I've visited. The food comes from local farms from the area... More

The Phoenicia Diner is one of the best diners you will ever visit!!! The food is incredible --I have never had a bad meal there and we return on a regular basis. It is an upscale kind of diner with local produce/food products and everything is fresh and delicious! My personal favorite is the Chicken Tortilla Soup. It is located... More

We were in the area and my husband really wanted to try this diner. The breakfast tacos were some of the best breakfast tacos I've ever had. Great place!

We heard that the diner had changed ownership and had a makeover, well it had indeed! The place was great! Service was on point, a good choice of food at good prices and really tasty. It seems to be what the area is in need of as every time we drove past the car park was busy and people seemed... More

Been going here for years when it was an old school greasy spoon. The building is a real mid-century diner which was brought up to this location in the 1980s from Queens, NY. The place and food has been transformed since the new owner took over about 2 years ago. A bit more expensive but worth it. Great Eggs Benedict,... More
