Only thing positive about this place was the speed. Party of 2. One had grilled cheese and soup, other had pancakes and sausage, 2 sodas = $25 !! Reviews said the service was great. It was so-so at best. Saw the server when we ordered, dropped the food and bill. No check-backs, no smile. Likely will not do again given... More

Everyone seems to go here for breakfast. The food is always good, the service friendly and the prices reasonable. From pancakes and omelets to breakfast sandwiches there is something for everyone.

When in Potsdam, we always make it a point to eat lunch at the Village Diner. The staff are always friendly & welcoming! The food is consistently good diner type food. They have super specials and we always get filling portions. Great hometown atmosphere!

I ordered lunch at the village dined, the atmosphere is wonderful, the staff delightful. I ordered a burger and what was placed in front of me was a low grade effort to create a genius idea. I love hot food, what I expected from the Frank burger is nothing short of disappointing. Watered down blue cheese, 8 total little chips... More

This diner has had a complete overhaul in the past three years. The staff and menu is all new. Great service and a wide selection of diner fare.

We stopped here for Sunday breakfast when visiting my son at Clarkson. The breakfast was delicious and we loved the place, but the best part for me was when I happened to notice a sign on the wall advertising the diner's chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. This particular combo of cake and frosting has always been my kids' favorite... More

Best known apparently for its table top size pancakes. My husband sampled the plate size version - I've never had to cut pancakes with a knife and fork before. They beat the batter and the pancakes get a very tough skin on it. Batter is just plain box mix, nothing special. I had an "omelet". Very thin layer of eggs... More
