Sunday Breakfast at the Redwood Diner

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.

Staying at Super 8 and they offered this restaurant as a local place to eat and we are glad they did! Haley was a great waitress, our food was delivered promptly. I had the beef and barley soup which was excellent. I also had a very crisp salad with honey mustard dressing. All honey mustard dressings are not always good... More

We stayed at the Super 8 in the area and this was the only highlight of the stay. We ended up eating dinner and breakfast here and would return here if ever in the area. The food was delicious and the wait staff goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. The best part the cost... More

On arrival I was seated immediately. From the menu, I saw they breakfast, lunch, and dinner were served. This diner offered comfort food classics and lighter fare. I ordered the Baked Stuffed Haddock at $13.99. It came with choice of vegetable and potato, plus soup and salad. I chose the Greek Noodle Soup which had large orzo carrots, and celery... More

We stopped by on our way to a concert, so we were concerned about time. We had no need to worry!! Our waitress (Jamie, I believe) took care of us quickly and efficiently. Our drink orders were taken within a minute of being seated. When ordering, I had a question on one dish, and she hurried back to ask the... More

We were in the Albany area to attend an event, and we stopped at the Redwood Diner for breakfast around 10am on a weekday. It was fairly busy but we were seated quickly and our order taken and served very quickly. Excellent breakfast items--eggs, toast, good coffee, homefries, etc. Friendly service and convenient to the area.
