We visited this diner on our vacation to go see my family. The service was good along with the food. We will visit again when we come visit.

Recently opened with a new owner and boy does it show. We had steaks, baked potato and veggies. Steaks were perfectly cooked and they gave us shrimp cocktail as an appetizer on them. Terrific meal. If your in the area or driving up Route 17 it's a must stop. By the way the name has changed from Monroe Diner to... More

We have given this diner a chance on several occasions as it is convenient, but have not had a meal yet that we have enjoyed. Service is inconsistent, at times so slow we wondered if our waitress's shift had ended and she had gone home. Its food, its filling, its ok. We usually leave wishing we had chosen to go... More

Good food and service. Eggs done as asked, hash browns a little undercooked, and toast was toast. Friendly faces waited on me.

Usually diners are warm friendly places with huge portions of food. This place was none of that. We had burgers, were well done and small.

Ordered a cheeseburger....medium. It was a little strange, and not what I was used to getting at this once great diner. It was huge. About 1/2 lb. of meat and like 3/4 of an inch thick with flat sides, kind of like a hockey puck. It was slightly charred on the outside (as any flame broiled burger should be) but... More

I used to visit this diner a lot haven't been in a while. I am sorry that I stopped the food is awful tasteless and very starchy the rice was like glue. The prices have doubled and it looks old and dingy. Don't waste your money
