What you would expect from a typical New Jersey Diner. Good breakfast selections. Inconvenient to get to if you are westbound on Route 22.

We needed to find a dinner at the last minute - so stopped in. WE both had the salmon special, I had it poached, my wife had it broiled. Both of us really thought it was done fine - nothing fancy, good basic salmon. Very affordable - full meal included, sides, salad or soup (I had the soup, my wife... More

The service here is friendly and quick. I come for breakfast or lunch frequently with a friend. The food is good diner food and the price is average for a diner.

I have lunch at The Scotchwood Diner several times a month. The food is average, decent diner food. I find their prices to be a little higher than I think they should be.

Went with a friend for lunch and it was awful! I had a Greek salad and there was a bunch of water in the bottom of the plate which made the lettuce soggy. My friends sandwich was equally as bad, the bread was dry and stale. Won't be back!

Only served on Wednesday and to die for. Big portion with huge chunks of white meat and fresh vegetables in a creamy sauce with a fresh baked crust in top. Love when they have this!

The scotch wood diner is a fine dining establishment. They have a wonderful assortment of food for breakfast. Lunch menu is very good and dinners too. They are reasonably priced but contain a lot of items and can be confusing. The turkey club for lunch was very good along with their cheeseburgers. The fish appears to be fresh and tasty.

I love going her for Breakfast even if it's 7 at night the French toast can not be beat. There are not to many diners left, but believe you me this place is a great place for families or people on a budget.

The service was good. Expect the usual diner fare. I ordered scrambled eggs and coffee. I wasn't disappointed.
