Average diner...

We ate here since every restaurant in town shuts down around 8pm! That being said, the staff were super nice, and accommodating. So gold stars for the staff! The food was okay....I had the fried shrimp basket. It was as expected, and my kids had hot dogs. My husband had a burger. This is your... read more

This Pizza establishment was reccommended to us from the place we were staying at. It was reasonably priced and tasted great. Friendly staff and was accutally a short wait. Wished they did deliver.

The food was good and service was good, but not outstanding. The decor was interesting. The portions were good size for the kids meals. They have malts and other ice cream selections and gigantic cookies for dessert.

we walked in with more than 20 in our group. The staff found seats for us and were very pleasant and helpful. Even with such a large group, their service and food delivery was very good. The inside of the diner was clean and had a "diner" atmosphere. I had the "old smokey", which i really enjoyed. It was hot... More

Need I say more than the review? We had a fly get stuck in the pasta and overall the food was pretty gross. Not one person of our 5 enjoyed the food. We had spaghetti and meatballs, chicken fett Alfredo, chicken strips and turkey bacon melts. We left hungry after spending $73. Never going back.

First the good - the staff were lovely, if a bit overly attentive (either because they were new and enthusiastic, or wanted to get us out nearing 9pm, I'm not sure), and they served beer, which not all diners do. The bad: nearly everything on the menu was a burger or sandwich, and was served in tacky plastic baskets. The... More

A friend and I stopped by for lunch. The place was packed. We ordered the brisket sandwiches which were good. The brisket was flavorful and tender. The sandwiches had a good amount of brisket. Although we didn't order a milkshake they looked really good.

My husband and I stopped at Route 16 Diner for lunch, Tuesday, Aug 27. I ordered the small 1/3 lb. cheeseburger and had to pay an extra $1.00 for lettuce (1 piece), tomato, pickle and onion. That is what they call "deluxe". Really? The burger lacked seasoning; it was just a piece of meat. My husband ordered the codfish sandwich... More

Ice cream soda came in a pint jar. Had no whipped cream and no cherry. Couldn't finish it because it was not good. The two sundaes were okay but not presented well. The fries were greasy. I would not recommend this restaurant. Was there July 3, 2013
