Nice atmosphere. Huge selection on menu. Quick service. Desserts made on premises. Food is usually good, and my last visit was fine. Other times, though, certain things have been messed up: one time egg salad and another time shrimp that tasted funny. Both times we sent the food back; it was replaced with no questions asked and no further problems,... More

We don't live in the area, but we travel here to get a good meal every time. This is a diner without the diner food label. Every plate is loaded with food, so come hungry or you won't finish it. I cannot even get my mouth around the turkey club because it's so large, and the chicken parm has two... More

The waitstaff was courteous, and our food was prepared and served very quickly. The decor is somewhat dated, but not in a retro kind of way--one comes away with a kind of purply-mauve impression in the memory. I had a patty melt with fries. Typically safe diner fare. The hamburger patty was thick, and the french fries were good. The... More

The Collegeville Diner is a great place to eat. No matter how busy they are, the service is excellent and the food high quality.

We brunched back in our old own backyard, at the Collegeville Diner and enjoyed all. They are user friendly, incredible server. The food was warm, prepared with care...not greasy, burned, inaccurate, or with an unreasonable wait. They are very busy. When others slow, the CD is still busy and producing quality rests. Pride is key for this business, uniformly.

Spacious dining area. Awesome desserts. Prices are higher compared to other diners in the area, but food is always great. My family has been coming here for years and years already.

Best diner in the area. Other diners are pretty bland, run-of-the-mill, but Collegeville Diner is great. Everything is fresh, and the staff is very nice.

Last Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2015 a friend and I brought a third friend to the Collegeville Diner supposedly for a "great" meal. We were extremely disappointed. I ordered breakfast, the scrapple was as hard as a hockey puck and I had to send it back. Believe me, I am easy to please. I have been eating in restaurants for over... More

After passing this place several times, I decided to stop here with my mom one morning. We were seated quickly and everything was very clean, unlike many diners i have been in. The wait staff were very nice, and made good recommendations about what's good on their menu and what they like. I had the apple cinnamon pancakes, and they... More
