Being English I love American diners which seem to be the only authentic American food you can get other than home cooked. This is the first diner that I was introduced to and still is the best I have visited. It also seems to have quite a history. Its close to a friend's place where we stay so this is... More

Always bring my friends from out of town to the Deluxe Town Diner. This time my guests were from New York where they say things like Mahrio and wooter. I consistently get the tasty hash and eggs, over easy for sure, with a lil bit a hot sauce. One time I had beer there at night. It was a good... More

This restaurant is a great place and the atmosphere is real American diner. The milkshakes are good and so is the chicken. The staff is also very friendly. I definetly recommend.

Now this is stick to the ribs meal! The coffee is freshly brewed and the water comes bottled... from the source.... Watertown Tap! Breakfast served all day and hearty it was. Ham and eggs were made to perfection. The ham was lean and not salty. The sunny side eggs were perfect and they were smiling at me. The home fries... More

I met a friend here and really enjoyed the place. Old school with something for everyone... except perhaps for the super health conscious. Reasonably priced.

We went there with another couple for dinner. We ordered johnny cakes, meatloaf dinner, Ployes, and a Monte Christo sandwich. Everyone like what they ordered. The Monte Christo sandwich was UGE!!! The diner is retro and takes you back in time as a lot of the elements are original even though there was once a fire. If you like diners,... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my dinner here - had a Tuna Salad sandwich on sourdough with fries. It's a lovely old diner and the interior remains authentic. Menu is slightly upscale diner stuff (humus on the menu for example). Service was very friendly and efficient - food was better than expected. Only reason not giving 5 stars is that it is a... More

The "Town Diner" was recommended by a resident of Waterton (our row mate on flight to BOS). It was well worth the drive from Cambridge, walking a couple of blocks in rain (no on site parking available) and standing outside for a short period of time with the chilly wind. We were told that the line often wraps around the... More
