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.

The food is mediocre at best, the service staff treat the customers with disdain, and the prices for diner food are ludicrous! Do yourself a favor and go down the road a little ways to the Union Plaza Diner instead!

We asked for a hamburger and the waitress asked if we wanted "fries". We both said yes. SHE NEVER MENTIONED THAT THERE WAS AN EXTRA CHARGE. Had she said there was a charge (which we never heard of), we would have said NO. We left them over anyway. We assume, she was giving us a choice of fries, lettuce or... More

Typical diner food - huge menu. Large servings. Wait staff ever so pleasant and accommodating. Cakes and turnovers and other dessert items in a display case that will make your mouth water!

classic diner menu but nothing special to recommend the Scotchwood. Union Plaza further up Rt 22 east has bigger selection and nicer interior.

Thank Jillef
