It's a diner. Need I say more?

I have heard some people complain about the Viewmont Diner. They say the service isn't that good, the food is too greasy, and the selections are weird. To all this I answer in a slow melodramatic voice,"It is a diner." The portions are large, the selections are varied, and the food is overall... read more

This place had good diner food. It offers breakfast all day. We chose other things. I had a crabcake sandwich. It was inexpensive, and packed with crab. None of us left hungry.

The woman who seated us had an attitude and looked like she just rolled out of bed. This should have been the first indication to turn around and go someplace else, but against our better judgement, we stayed. The food was disgusting. The oatmeal tasted like glue, the utensils were dirty and I had to ask for new ones. The... More

Let's start off with the person at the front has a slight attitude. The food is disgusting and the coffee taste like warm dirty water. Let's just say that the food left a lasting effect :-(

Large and tasty portions. Great home fries and omlettes. Prices are also reasonable for the quantity and quality of food served.

I decided to try the viewmont diner after I was told that it had good food, and I was very pleasantly surprised, not only was the food great but the price was good as well, I had pancakes and sausage with milk and a lot of coffee, and it cost me with tip only $14 now that is a good... More

This is a sort of joint review, as I'm also including my wife's and niece's less-than-favorable comments along with my own more positive take. My wife's been here twice while traveling to and from New York City, and not liked it either time; my niece has been here three times (I think she said) also while traveling, and been more... More

My wife and I stopped after midnight for a bite. We were seated quickly because there was not a lot of people at this time of night. Very friendly women seated us and took our order. Highly recommend! Great menu & great food!

Often times a crowded parking lot, is a good indication of a good restraint, this is no exception. The food is homemade styled, quick, hot and plentiful. There's plenty of space to accommodate the potential customers. Service was quick and the price was good. It's sandwiched between two rival national chained types; but the parking lot shows which is the... More

I'm a native of this area but had never been here. Because theme- and chain-restaurants, fast-food joints, and specialty food places (Chinese, Italian, etc.) dominate this incredibly congested retail area, I decided to give a "Mom and Pop" "diner" a try. I paid $5.00 for a "side salad" consisting of a few leaves of lettuce, four crouton-size tomato cubes, and... More
