Breakfast was needed, and my grumpy group was extra grumpy because I made them take extra time to visit this spot. But we were very satisfied by our visit. The menu had something called Taylor Ham. I had not heard of it before, but learned that this is a New Jersey specialty. Who knew that NJ had its own regional... More

Breakfast was good. Service was a little slow at times. Eggs cooked just as requested. Bacon was good too. Potatoes were a bit bland for my taste. I would try it again.

The Brookside is a great diner in the tradition of New Jersey diners. It is a very good place to take your family. The food is excellent, reasonably priced, and the restaurant is clean. I would highly recommend.

Was staying in the nearby Hilton for an event. Had breakfast at the Hilton the first morning and it was not only awfully bland with a very small selection (buffet) but it was $50 for 3 people. Not a bad price for hotel breakfast buffet, but not for what we ate. Found this nearby diner. Had a great menu, fresh... More
