“Going Downhill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We visit the area on occasion and usually tried to eat here. You know there is something wrong when they "can't" substitute toast for potatoes, when they raise the price of oatmeal from 2.99 to 6.99, and they stop serving country ham to the thin sliced stuff. We will stay with the Red Lion diner from now on.

“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Stopped at the diner with seven in my family. We really loved the food and the service. Jason and Stephanie our servers were top notch. All of our food was excellent and we had plenty of food left over to take home. I read other post complaining about the portions and I can't imagine getting a larger portion than we got. The Jersey milkshakes were to die for. Jason makes a mean milkshake. Can't wait to go back.

“Farm to Table Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

I've dined at this rather large diner on a few occasions when in this part of S.Jersey. Agree with most reviews of this place as food is very good and service is pleasant. Breakfast , lunch or dinner item are guarante to have something for everyone. Awesome selection of burgers, sandwiches and wraps. Blueberry or sweet potatoes pancakes are highly recommended. This time around was for dinner and I had baked cod al forno which was excellent along with berry spinach salad. Veggies are from local farms as there close by in this part of Jersey. Decent wine selection but crafts beer is way to go here. There are several micro brews to choose from the list. Desserts are made on the premises so try the cheesecake for sure. Parking is ample and you cann't miss this place on Rt206. Premises is kept spotless.

“My favorite Diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Every time we go to the Vincentown diner it is so so yummy. We were there for breakfast and it was delicious. They serve the best coffee in really big cups. They even have Raw Sugar. The eggs were so fresh.
They are known for great burgers. We are planning on going back for burgers and shacks.
They have a bar also. You have to check it out.

“A health hazard”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

To begin with, we were long time customers; before they renovated. The Vincentown Diner used to be great; the food was delicious, large portions & a decent value. As soon as they renovated, like many other Diners (it still baffles me why Diners still call themselves diners after they've basically morphed into restaurants & charge high end prices) they immediately jacked up their prices, the service & quality of food took a dive.
Our visits declined quite a bit, however we decided to visit one night. HUGE MISTAKE. During our meal, we each needed to use the restroom. Before we even got there, the horribly disgusting smell of sewage assaulted our noses. We decided to get the heck out of there after that. While waiting for our check, we heard loud screams from another part of the diner, it seems a mouse had scurried near some other diners.
Here's the worst part-We politely told the manager (who we've talked to on a friendly basis for many years) about our concerns. We were stunned by his lack of concern.
NEVER AGAIN.
