I live in NJ, the land of diners, so I have much to compare it to. Since there is no "good" rating, I used average. The food was fine for sure. The staff was pleasant, definitely. They were understaffed, things took awhile, but again, it was definitely good and on a Sunday morning, they held their own. If you are hungry and passing it, you will likely be happy but not "wowed". My french toast was fine but my son really did enjoy his oat dipped french toast.

We were in the area passing through and just love diners, so we decided to get breakfast here. It was a quiet morning and we were immediately approached by Santiago with coffee. He was a fantastic waiter- friendly and attentive. My husband got the eggs benedict and said it was fresh and delicious. I got the fruit parfait with yoghurt. The diner was clean and had a HUGE array of food offerings. Staff was very friendly! Great place to enjoy a meal!

I can be sure to have a vast selection of ANYTHING I want. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, all served any time of day. The Restaurant is spotless, kept up nicely, and the bathrooms are clean and always stocked. The food is very good. Of course it's not a fancy place (but it does look nice inside) but anything you order is going to be very tasty, done to your specific requests, and you always get way more than you can eat. That's why I always get a container, I have another meal, or two for home! The staff is extremely friendly, don't ignore you and are always checking to make sure everything is okay. If you just don't know where to go, but think a diner isn't good enough, consider going to the Dutchess Diner, you won't be disappointed! Oh, the prices are very reasonable for all you get!

Been here a number of time and always enjoyed the meal. They have a great variety and the prices are fair the portions are big. People are friendly. We had family in town and they got a hotel near the diner and they enjoyed going there and made friends with the waitress. The coffee is really good too.

This is a place I meet with a group once a month for breakfast. It is a typical NY diner with offerings you would expect. There are great combo offerings for breakfast that include beverages and meal choices, and more creative options in the ala carte menu. They are willing to substitute without additional charge (tomatoes for potatoes as example). The waitress is attentive and remembers us including the orders of those who are regular in choices. The owner makes a point of checking in if all is ok with our table.

Dropped in to Dutchess DIner around 10:30am. I felt like a burger and they made it for me even tho it was still bkfst time. Burger was delicious, extra flavorful (they must sear it with some spices), very very good side pickle and cole slaw. I had a chocolate milk, made up at the counter and I forgot how good they could be. A regular was at the counter-- clearly enjoying his time with the waiter staff. It's not high cuisine, don't come here for that; it's a great diner and handy to stop into. .

Service wasn't bad. However food has certainly gone downhill. My wife ordered a chicken souvlaki, it looked nice HOWEVER the tzatziki was HORRID. I don't know how one can mess up a sauce that is Greek yogurt and cucumber but they did (appeared to be possibly dill instead of cucumber). I ordered a burger off their burger contest list. It wasn't really bad, just a failed attempt at too many flavors on one item which also made it far too thick to manage. I really suggest they go back to their old standards and stop messing with time tested recipes.

They gave us very weak iced tea, it was pale and tasted like water. The waitress said it was the only iced tea they had offered to give us something else but I did not want a diet soda. I noticed that a nearby table ordered iced tea and they received glasses of ice and a small pot of hot water and tea bags. They brewed their own tea which was much darker than what we were served. I also had French toast which was the worst I have ever eaten. The bread was not even dipped in egg. It was just grilled bread. I also told the waitress the French toast was terrible. She said she would tell the kitchen. The least she could have done was not charge us the $2.90 for the glass of weak tea. We won’t be back.

Customer Service: Very Good Food Quality: Very Good Overall: Recommended There is nothing like a New York Dinner, the look, smell and taste of great food. I stop in for a bite at the Dutchess an had a great meal. The service was polite, courteous and friendly, her co-worker Jen was great, funny, outgoing and a really nice person. The food was top notch, I had the roasted beef club with, coleslaw, fries and the pickle. The sandwich was full of flavor and the pickle was awesome. Just enough salt and great crunch. The chocolate mouse cake was to die for. If you are in the area stop in because you will have a great meal. and a great experience.

It's a diner, with the gleaming chrome and bright lights to prove it. I've been there numerous times, mostly after movies with friends. Not the place for a romantic dinner, but a great spot for tasty food and awesome desserts. They also serve alcohol. The service has always been very good.

After the mall we usually go here. I decided to have a Ceaser salad. It was okay. I wish they threw in some croutons . The chicken was very good. We will return.

The introduction of a number of new restaurants along route 9 in the Fishkill/Poughkeepsie corridor seems to have affected business here- we arrived at 6 p.m. and our first impression from the outside was that the restaurant was not even open. Still, there were some cars there and we had eaten there many years in the past so in we went. We were immediately seated and our drink orders taken. In a few minutes we had received our drinks and had our orders taken. My wife ordered "Irene's 'To the Moon' Panini" while I had the pastrami Reuben. Both came with a small dish of good cole slaw and dill pickle slice. The sandwiches themseves were tasty, with the dressing served on the side to be poured on the sandwich depending on your taste. A nice sized portion of fries were included and they were good as well. You don't go to a diner expecting a gourmet meal- you go to get a decent meal at a decent price. In that regard, Dutchess Diner delivers- cost for the meal before tax and tip was under $28. Overall selection looked good.

Good food. Great service. Extensive menu. Love the breakfast sausage. Great for late nights. Recommend this diner above the other local ones.
