We like the Redwood. The food is always good and you always feel very welcomed! Service is good and we have been going for years- they put a lot of heart in their holiday decorating and welcoming families young and old !

My boyfriend and I came in for brunch on a Saturday. It wasn't too busy as we got a seat right away. The food was average, nothing exciting but simple. The sausage links were crispy (which I loved) and the pancakes were fluffy. It's not our favorite place for breakfast but it did the job of quenching our hunger.

Every time I come back to Schenectady my first stop is Redwood diner. Two dogs all the way mustard, meat sauce & onions. Get the party started Greek style!

We were staying overnight in Schnectady, NY and were looking for a quick place to eat dinner after a day of travel. Have a nice covered patio. Ordered the pork loin and the meal was packed with options - soup(which I didn't take) and salad, corn on the cob(too full to eat), pork loin, potato and rice pudding. I was... More

We go here often and the past few times, food has been getting better each time. This was for a lunch, and I took a chance and ordered a hot pastrami sandwich. That's always a risk -- pastrami is often too fatty and tough. This, however, was perfect -- tender, lean (for pastrami) and on a sandwich with plenty of... More

We have stopped several times at the Redwood Diner on our way to an auction on a Sunday - always a good breakfast - good fast service. It can be busy on Sunday - not much of a wait to get a booth.

We were traveling down I90 and needed to stop for a quick lunch, we were going to run through Mc Donalds at the next rest stop but decided against it as there were a lot of restaurants off the next exit. We stopped at the redwood diner instead and they were the perfect alternative because of how quickly we were... More

Old time Diner that has more Specials than you can remember. Delicious. Many different kinds of pies and creamy cheese cake. Very busy but, no waiting.

Family friendly diner. Love giving business to home town businesses---they are great at refilling your coffee mug and do not rush you out.
