Love this place. Reminds me of the many NJ Diners that are so great. Expansive menu and super service. Huge BLT with turkey. Flavorful beef barley soup. Large portions. Hard to pass by the case with the many pies and cakes without enjoying. Don’t miss.

This diner is lower than the street and it wasn’t was easy to figure out how to get into the parking lot, but it was so busy that obviously no one else had trouble. I had the catfish plate and the salad, then the entree...arrived quickly. I was in a hurry and couldn’t have been happier. The salad was crisp and fresh, the entree hot and tasty. I can’t say enough about the excellent service by my waitress. I’ve eaten in a lot of diners across the US and this one was super clean by comparison to most. Will definitely return.More

A large group of us stopped at 54 dinner after a wedding in Iowa. Location was central, establishment was clean and food prices were reasonable. Our waitress was amazing and the food was perfect. Biscuits and gravy were fabulous.

I eat at Diner 54 monthly. It's your classic diner fare, complete with a wide variety of pies. Prices are good, service is great!

Good food & reasonably priced. But, if you are seated on the south side there is a sewer smell every now and then.
