Everything about this place is fantastic. It is a little on the smaller side, so if you get there at peak meal time sometimes you have to wait to get a table. The staff are all friendly and helpful, food is great and it's such a comfy atmosphere to eat in. The parking lot is kind of in rough shape... More

This is a very friendly, down home diner, the kind where you see someone you know everytime you go there. The North Country has this phenomenon: restaurants open ONLY for breakfast and lunch and that's it. This diner is one of them. I wish they served dinner because it would be good and successful for them, however........The servers here are... More

The Village Diner is not pretentious at all - what you see (and get) is good quality diner food. The service is quick and friendly. They do all the normal breakfast items and have a nice lunch sandwich selection. My advice is to check out the specials listed on the big plates above the bar - usually some excellent items... More

On a Saturday morning, there is nothing better than a trip to the Village Diner. Especially if you have been out drinking the night before. The place is very small so it has the cozy, homey feel. Service is always fast and waitresses are usually always friendly. I recommend an omlet or any other egg item. Can't go wrong.

I've gone to the Village Diner many times - sometimes it's just for a bowl of soup other times it's for a Ruben sandwich (love Ruben's!), then other times for breakfast. Regardless of the time of day or what you're in the mood for, the Village Diner is someplace you know you're going to get a full stomach and it's... More

We only ate there once, but would have gone back if we'd had time. Everything about it was the very best you could imagine in a diner. The food was fresh, freshly prepared, cheerfully served and inexpensive. Everyone enjoyed their meals, and we had a fun time. Don't even THINK about trying the Pancake Challenge! They use a much heavier... More

We had breakfast here during our visit to Clarkson University. It was an excellent place to have breakfast. Great selections (they serve breakfast and lunch all day). The waitress was outstanding. She was friendly and very helpful in food selection. I go my usual selection for breakfast of 2 eggs over medium with bacon and toast. I got their Homemade... More

We have only been here for breakfast. It is much like most diners with good hearty food, friendly service, and a basic atmosphere.

When we go to Potsdam, which is several times a year, we can always count on this place for a fine breakfast or lunch. The service is friendly and familiar. The menu has many reliable dishes but there's always something special with a culinary twist that isn't found in many North Country diners. Many menu items are geared for folks... More
