Great meat lovers omelot. The resturant is very clean and the staff is welcoming and friendly. Its best to sit in the back where its cooler on hot days. I definately go again if I'm in the area.

Beautiful old diner! Pleasant staff. Typical vast range of excellent quality food at a good price. Why anybody would go to McDonalds or Wendys instead of supporting these quality old family run diners is beyond me.

We were looking for a place to take my father-in-law to lunch and came to the Neptune Diner. The food was excellent, and portions very large. Between the 4 of us we had chicken and waffles, Reuben, burgers and grilled cheese so we had a good cross section of the menu. And it was ALL great! Staff was very friendly... More

It's a great place - nice ambience, great food, good prices, no complaints! The only thing is that it was very crowded, but it still was a great experience regardless!

I order Belgian waffles for the maple syrup. Sometimes diners charge extra for it, and that's OK. To learn the only syrup available for my waffle was not maple was a disappointment. And this in a town where maple syrup is sold at Central Market. Too bad, since they've rebuilt the Neptune nicely after the fire.

After a morning of shopping, I like to stop in to the Neptune for one of their burgers. They are one of the best burgers I've had in this area. The servers are always friendly and very attentive. It's a bargain at best for a great meal. Their meatloaf is good too.

This place is known for their Apple Dumplings & Meatloaf and the only two good things on the menu were the Apple Dumpling & Meatloaf. Everything else was we had was blah and normal. Nothing to write home about. Apparently, they don't have calculator there because BOTH times we were there durning the weekend, our bill was never totaled and... More

This diner was on a tv show on the travel channel and since we were in the area we decided to give it a try. I am so glad that we did! We had a variety of food, (burger, crab cakes & meatloaf) and everything was delicious. The prices were great too! If you're in the area, you have to... More

Went there for lunch because of the recent reviews and seeing the Meatloaf Stack on the travel channel. My husband ordered the meatloaf stack and he did not like the gravy at all. He said it overpowered the entire meal. He said the onion rings on top were excellent, and so were the smashed potatoes. He did not like the... More

Hi Deborah, We are flattered that you chose us based on reviews that you've read. Furthermore, you came and tried some of our well known meals. That's excellent and we appreciate it. Your husband's meal sounds like it was heavy on the gravy and that's upsetting to have that overpower the taste of the entire meal. For that, we are... More

Just what you'd expect in good, diner fare. No unpleasant surprises. We always enjoy our visits. Worth a stop for breakfast if you are in the area.
