Visiting family from out of town - walk into the diner and my husband that grew up in Croton ran into 4 different people and/or families he knew. All the locals come to the Croton Diner and for good reason. Food is good, huge portions, and reasonably priced. I had the stuffed cabbage it was delicious. Can't go wrong at... More

The staff is super professional and the ownership is super nice. Food is great as well. My minor complaint is the loud music which makes it hard to talk to friends. And the multiple TV screens are also not needed....they are a visual distraction and without the TV volume why bother watching silent video?

Portions are what you would expect at a traditional diner and the food was really good. Large menu to chose from. Owner was really nice and gave me a coffee mug when I complemented the dinner at checkout.

This diner has been around for years. The quality has gone down and the prices have gone up--way up. It is much too expensive for the quality of food they serve.

this is one of the better ones. Went there today when all other lunch places in town were closed...Monday. I had feta spinach omelet and a chocolate egg cream. Service is fast and it's always open.

The diner is located just off Route 9A in Croton On Hudson. An old style diner with excellent food. There is plenty of available parking on site. The food is very fresh and the portions large. The prices are reasonable with a very large menu. A nice place to eat

And figured it was fine for the Blaze, so back we went. Solid diner fare. Portions generous and tasty. Chicken salad 3x decker was yummy. Moist, meaty, not overly mayonnaise-y, tomato and lettuce fresh, bacon crispy, and toasted rye toasted to crisp yet soft center perfection. Son devoured gyro. Daughter devoured hotdog which was more like bratwurst. Wife's roast beef/Swiss... More

Had dinner here before going to the Halloween Blaze in Croton on the Hudson. It is clean, food was very good and staff pleasant. Since there were many tourists in town for the Blaze, the diner was very busy but it did not hinder the service or quality of food. Extensive menu. Will stop again if in the area.
