Had breakfast with my daughter on her way back to school. First off, we had to wait to be seated when the place was empty, everyone who worked there was too busy. Service was not very good, the food was overpriced and it was average at best. Would not recommend.

Stopped here on the trip home late at night and they had a great variety of meals to offer,including breakfast. The food was very good,large portions and staff was very friendly. Prices were fair and I would be down there everyday if I lived closer.

I stopped in my traveling on the highway . It was a much needed break and the food was adequate , much better than what you would get at a rest stop. I had an omelette which was standard , the bread was delicious though. My waitress was pleasant and kept the coffee flowing. I stopped in the restroom to... More

We appreciate your report regarding our restroom. We are very proud of our restroom design and function and have received many great comments about our excellent cleanliness. It is not our policy to allow anyone to use the diaper changing station as a countertop. We also offer a hand dryer instead of wasteful paper towels. This ensures that our wall... More

We pulled in and the parking lot was packed, I thought for sure we'd have to wait, however, the dining room is huge. The menu is also very big, with a lot of good options. We were there for dinner but I was the only one who ordered dinner food. I got the Greek chicken from the blue plate menu... More

Thanks for stopping in for dinner - our service may have been a bit slow due to the high volume at that time - same for your not being given crayons and coloring books. We appreciate your review and hope to make you happier next time!! More

We measure diners elsewhere by Jersey standards so the Cromwell Diner fits in about average. It was close to motel we were at and the wait to be seated was short. Breakfast was our choice for two mornings. As with many diners, they offer too few creamers when you order coffee. Big place, plenty of servers.

The last time I was at the Cromwell Diner the interior was very old and musty smelling. Visited today and was really surprised. All new interior. Bright and up to date. Our sandwiches were very good. Our waitess. ..well...not so friendly. Even the restrooms have been updated. Will Definitely go back.

Lots of good things-close to the highway, lots of windows so it's very bright inside, clean, friendly staff, prompt service, even the bathrooms were clean. The food wasn't horrible but I felt like it was average. I probably wouldn't stop in again. I ordered eggs benedict which had way too much hollandaise sauce for my taste...my mom had pancakes which... More
