If you check out any of my reviews you will notice that I am not easily impressed. To rate every category, "Excellent", for me, is unheard of. The River View Diner is a gem in every respect of the word. It's a gift to everyone who lives in or near North Bergen, NJ. I'm sure the River View Diner has... More

Family owned and operated, the River View reflects... More

We had the large bowl of lobster bisque. Cost $2.85 For dessert we had the biggest piece of baklava that I had ever been served. Both of us shared one... More

This was one of my first experiences at an American Diner and it really met the stereotype I have from a UK perspective. You get what you enter the building for with no rubbish. Fast, friendly service, big menu, simple, large dishes, a nice selection of drinks and then off out of the door and into the car on the... More

This restaurant is the quintessential New Jersey Style Americana Diner in a great location. There was a diverse array of menu selections as expected from pancakes to steak. We ordered burgers, a gyro, and turkey sandwich. These items were flavorful, and abundant portions were served. The service was attentive and friendly. The prices were fair when factoring in the large... More

Both of the choices we made were not available. I don't remember what they were but we never order anything strange. After looking at the menu to find substitutes for a... More

We've eaten there several times now. Consistent food, generous portions, friendly service. This will become our "go to" diner.
