The owner is an aggressive man who doesn't accept complaints. I substituted a side for another but got charged for both.

If you want cheap food for not so... More

My dinner companion chose this dinner over one that she felt was overpriced. She chose a booth near the salad bar. Unfortunately I am stout and the space between the seat and the table was a tight fit.

Many years ago (and I do mean many), when I attended the local college in the area, my friends and I used to eat at the Diner for late (and I do mean late) night meals.

Stopped here for a bit to eat after a show at The Chance venue. Staff was nice, food was pretty good. Probably would skip it the next time I'm in Poughkeepsie.

ZERO STARS if possible. Awful. My son contracted food poisoning after eating their chili this past Saturday night. Vomiting and diarrhea for 8 straight hours, cramping and fatigue has not yet left him. He missed performing in his Sunday matinee because of the food. Diner manager suggested he might be allergic to chili....brilliant. The Health Department is now investigating. DO... More
