The food was very plain. Pancakes were dry, bacon and ham were so so. Chicken orzo soup was salty too. Service was good and that is why I gave it a 2 out 5 rating.

I was looking for a diner at 7 am and this was the only one opened. The service was nice. The food was delicious. The atmosphere is very downtown diner. I really like it.

Have stopped in for breakfast a number of times. The food is served promptly and hot. Theo's home made corned beef hash is, in my opinion, the best I have enjoyed and I look forward to it. The staff is courteous and were very gracious...and organized this past Monday noon with the Memorial Day crowd.More

If you want a great breakfast, with excellent service in New Milford, this is the place. Every breakfast option is delicious and the staff is so very friendly. The decor is inviting and cozy and they have nice teas & juice options in addition to...great coffee. I go at least once each month and never come away disappointedMore

My wife and I decided to try someplace new. We live in Danbury and came to New Milford to try one of the places. We decided on Theo’s and it was a great decision. The coffee is great and we started with a muffin. It...was so fresh and had excellent flavor. I had eggs and hot Italian sausage. The sausage had great flavor and the potatoes were excellent. I don’t usually eat breakfast potatoes because of usual prepackaged stuff but this was different. Everything was fresh and seasoned just right. My wife had the eggs with gyro meat and she loved it. Can’t wait to come back again. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating!!More

I always love getting the Greek salad from here, the dressing is delicious and chicken is always well cooked. The breakfast offerings here are excellent as well; my personal favorite is the challah bread French toast and western omelette. Would definitely recommend, it is open...for breakfast and lunch. It is closed on Monday’s (except for holidays).More

Stopped for breakfast. Very ordinary and not inexpensive. There are several Better options close by.

New Milford and the surrounding area has some great diners. In terms of modern art deco glitz, you have something grand like Diner Luxe, and then, in the town center itself, you have something unassuming like Theo's. This was the first time we had been...there and it was based on a recommendation. The restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch, but seems to do great business and has lots of regulars. The breakfast was great - the home fries in particular were among the best I've ever had at an American diner. Also, friendly service and the food came out fast and piping hot. The diner doesn't have its own car park, but there is some on-street parking outside and a car park directly across the street. We would definitely go here again.More
