“A little better than average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We stopped for lunch at this cute diner. The food was good, but with a ittle effort, could have been so much better! Great bread, very good, crispy fries and stuffed grape leaves on the salad bar rate high with me. However, those same fries had no seasoning, and so, were very tasteless. My chicken panini was almost sensational - delicious bread, roasted red peppers, cheese, but lacked any condiment or seasoning on both the chicken and the bread. Some feta or seasoned mayonnaise would have made it top-rate. Portions are good and a linzer tart cookie I brough home was phenomenal. I would stop again, hoping the owner and chefs read some reviews and take our suggestions!

“Great stop on way to NYC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Clinton Staion is right off of I-78 in N.J. and about 30 min from NYC, we travel to NY several times a year from Pittsburgh and always say we want to stop but never did til this trip. Walked inside at lunch time and were greated right a way, once we were seated our server came over and asked what we would like to drink. Service continued to be good trough the meal and I could tell they are use to serving a lunch crowd that needs to get back to work. The food was good, the portions were large and the it wasn't over priced. I would have to say on the scale of Diners I have been in the "Clinton Station" is a step above.. Great food, Great Service we will stop back again..

“Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

This place is your typical highway stop. It tries to be more than that but fails at it. The menu is huge so you know the food is not fresh and alot of items have that frozen taste to it. Has a salad bar that is nothing special. The big this are huge burgers that no one could actually eat. Food is okay if you stick to the basics, Portions are huge service is just okay but never great.
