Good, no frills dining

It's a basic diner but the food is decent and the price is right. Breakfast is best but there are good lunch choices as well.

We were looking for a place to eat, and a woman told us that Pete's was one of the best places to eat. She was right. We had soup, salad, and a few entrees, and the quality of the food was terrific. The portions were HUGE. The prices were unbelievably good. It's more of a cafe than a diner, with... More

we visited in a busy Sunday morning for brunch. The place was filling up but we were seated and served quickly. You could tell the waitress was busy but she was very pleasant and accommodating. We played our order and it seemed like all the plates came within just a few minutes. Our group had wraps, quesadillas, veggie burgers and... More

My wife and I were there last Sat Oct 31. I wanted to go somewhere else, but my wife was hungry. Extremely limited menu, mainly soup, sandwiches, and wraps. However they did have a small selection of dinner entrees. Wife had the chicken Parmesan with spaghetti, which really wasn't bad. I had the Greek dinner....spanakopita, moussaka, Greek salad. Totally tasteless.... More

We travel to the area once or twice a year and find ourselves at Pete's for breakfast each time. The wait staff is friendly, personable and efficient. The food it standard breakfast fare, but well prepared in good sized portions. The kids love the fluffy pancakes. I usually order eggs with hash browns and toast, which are always good. my... More

My husband and I (and many others) enjoy a delicious breakfast at Petes Famous Diner when we come for a stay in Rhinebeck NY ... Friendly service and freshly made food.

I rarely write such negative reviews but like to be honest. Given the crowds at this place (great location, captive audience of locals and tourists), you'd expect the cooks to be able to execute simple egg dishes. Nope. My husband's order of eggs over easy came with broken yokes. The eggs were also tiny. My English muffin was also barely... More

Nothing special here, seems dated, but plain simple diner fare. No atmosphere, and they are not to swift.
