Stopped here for lunch with my two (adult) children. Daughter had the fish sandwich (huge and delicious!), son had the turkey club (huge and delicious too!) and I had the egg salad roll (perfectly sized for me and delicious!). All came with awesome fries and coleslaw. Waitress was attentive, quick, friendly and professional-exactly what you'd expect at an old time... More

A REAL traditional diner. Old fashioned, great service, beautiful looking deserts and daily specials. I had a chicken salad sandwich on toast. The sandwich was stuffed full of white meat chicken, delicious and filling. My companion had the chicken pot pie with mashed potatoes and a side of cranberry sauce. It was delightful!

I visit family here every couple of years, travelling all the way from Australia, and a highlight of my trip is always dessert at the Agawam Diner. The service is excellent, exceeded only by the quality of their cream pies. A new favourite tonight - coconut cream!

After driving past here since I was a kid my wife and I stopped for lunch. A nice find! I ordered the Chicken Pie which was very good with a great crust and large chunks of chicken. The mashed potatoes were great. Our server was friendly and efficient. Make sure you bring cash as they don't accept credit cards.

Be ready for a wait when you come to the Agawam dinner. Service is quick for being so busy. It is an old school place. We had chicken salad and cheese burger club . both were good. We were too full for desert but they looked awesome. We will be back

Wow. We haven't been here in over five years but nothing has changed. The exterior and interior are still 100% all-American Diner. The specials are still lettered on the wall above the counter, the booths are comfortable and clean, and the clientele is mostly so that tells you something. My husband wanted a good plate of fried Ipswich clams, so... More

Eating at the Agawam is like walking into Grandmas house. They welcome you like family. The food is typical diner fare but it's the atmoshphere they've created that's so warm and friendly. After only a couple visits they asked our names, now recognize us when we go in. They make you feel right at home.

I eat here about 3-4 times a month. It's great when you just don't feel like cooking. I love the BLT Clubs and Hot Turkey Sandwiches and those PIES are to die for. I have taken 1 star off of the review because they are not accessible to handicapped customers. My sister requires a "walker" and she can't get into... More
