Food not bad and service better than most. Problem with this diner is they have done nothing inside to make it attractive in any manner. Poorly lit and and just plain dull interior.

Typical diner that serves a wide variety of food - never had a bad meal and we visit often mostly for breakfast - friendly welcoming good service. Breakfast specials are great also have a dinner salad bar.

I met an old friend for dinner at the Jersey Diner and was pleasantly surprised by the large selection on the dinner menu. The food was tasty and the price was fair, what more you ask for.
