The treatment of an incorrect bill was done by management is a rude an incorrect way. When ordering an omelette and asking for specific ingredients we were told by waitress No problem When the bill came we were charged for these items like tomatoes etc we were told that juice came with order but then it was on our bill...

I had brought the senior 1/2 meatloaf sandwich with mashed potato band gravy. I could not finish the potatoes they were very filling. I could not eat the whole salad either. Plus I get a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

What a delicious meal! We were invited here by family for Greek Easter Dinner. We were treated like family by Gus the owner, his wife and Jimmy the host. The food was terrific. We were a large party including 4 children and everyone in our party was very satisfied with their meals. The lamb shank with orzo was my favorite.... More

My family and I had our Greek Easter dinner at the Dutchess Diner. Gus and Mary took care of every detail. We had our Easter bread, dyed red eggs, and every Greek delicacy on the menu. Lamb shank with orzo to die for, pasticio, souvlaki, spanakopita and all desserts. Our waiter David was wonderful and our hosr, Jimmy, made sure... More

I have gone to the diner in the past and it was okay...nothing to write home about. Well I had lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The sandwich was tasty and different. I had a turkey sandwich with cranberry and cheese. The cranberry was melted and it just gave the sandwich a fresh taste. The french fries were seasoned hot and... More

Just what you'd expect and want from a diner. Lots of choices and all of ours were good. My fried fish sandwich was just right. Efficient service, fair prices.

This is a fairly typical, fairly large diner, competitive with the above average diners in New Jersey. Very attentive service, very good cleanliness, including the men's room. Typically vast menu. Matzoh ball soup was light and well season with good chicken flavor. Vegetable Panini was cooked perfectly. Generous salad bar and good Greek desserts. Well done.

Was there at breakfast on a Saturday with my brother. It was very busy like most diners are. I wish people would cut back on their cologne and perfume......that had nothing to do with the diner but for those of us sensitive to it.....wow......I want to smell food when I eat not someone's perfume emanating from another table. The standard... More

we were seated in a high traffic area, next to the kitchen. Food was too overpriced for what was given.
