Great breakfast, great service, quick turn around, nice prices, just what we were looking for. The waitstaff was excellent. Nothing like a good diner to pig out in.

We stop here every time we're in the area visiting family. Food and service are always good. Efficient friendly service, important when you need to get on the road early!

I go here quite frequently for breakfast, my favorite. There are plenty of options and daily specials. Service is always great. Please give this review a helpful vote if you found it helpful.

Regularly come here for breakfast/brunch. You can't go wrong here if you're looking for standard diner fare. The service is speedy and friendly. Make sure you get here early on weekends or be prepared to wait.

this place is better than fantastic. the food is off the charts, better than excellent. portions are huge this alone makes this place a "got to go to" spot. but wait, service, off the charts also. friendly, polite attentive, accomodating. They GOT it. You will too if you want the best breakfast or lunch in the north country.

Average wait for a busy weekend. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Food was nothing special and a tad overpriced. We will exhaust other venues before returning.

We had no problem getting a table...they have a hostess who seats you. Nothing fancy about the décor. Food is good, service is quick, but $9 for an omelet is a bit pricey. I would eat here again, but would check out other places first.

One of the first things I notice in a restaurant is the silverware. Most restaurant silverware is made of cheep stamped steel. The silverware at the Village Diner is for-real flatware. It has heft and feels good in the hand. For that alone I give the Village Diner high ratings. The food is good, serving the best pancakes in Potsdam.... More
