I love authentic diners and this one is authentic from the actual antique Silk City construction to the meals. We got there just minutes before closing on a Sunday night (about 8:00 pm) but we were seated and still waited upon and served in a...relaxed manner. All three of us had burgers with fries and we could want for nothing more as they were excellent diner burgers: thick, juicy, cooked as requested. The fries were perfectly done as well. The waitstaff was all that was needed: professional, tended to us as needed, and not at all rushing us even though it was the end of their shift. We'll be returning next time we're in the area.More
We used to live in Middletown Springs, VT and ate here years ago so while visiting friends now we decided to try the Birdseye again and it was great. Wonderful breakfast everything was brought out to us just as we asked for and liked. If...you're in the area this is a good place to eat.More
We went at dinner time on a Friday night, it was not that busy at all. Our waitress was okay, seemed like she might have had too much coffee that day as her level of energy far outweighed the service needs of the dining room...and she was like a dervish in the dining room. The decor is retro-diner without the jukeboxes on the table. The Birdseye Onion Rings were a major disappointment. Expecting breaded thin sliced onion rings, we were presented with a large plate of something between a sauteed onion and onion rings whose batter fell off. We nearly choked on them as they were greasy, long and slimy. The Philly Steak & Cheese was very good, however the diced green peppers were odd, as they are usually sliced. My daughter had a BLT which she loved. We took dessert to go: Lemon Meringue Pie and something called Peanut Butter Explosion Cake. The Lemon Meringue was not homemade, but delicious nonetheless. The Peanut Butter Explosion Cake as a chemical mixture of chocolate cake and peanut butter. Guessing it was not homemade. Prices were affordable and overall the ambience is what made the experience. I doubt if I would ever return as much as I like diners, this one was just meh.More
Constant Companion and I were en route home and desired a light lunch. Having read about Birdseye on TA we detoured Route 4 and stopped.
This is a cute old diner in the heart of sleepy Castleton. Heavily frequented by local grey hairs and youths...it offers very good food and good service. CC ordered the Sauteed Chicken sandwich, house made cole slaw, and a Chardonnay. What she received was a perfectly cooked chicken filet, moist, and dressed with pesto, provolone, arugula, and sun dried tomatoes. She proclaimed it "EXCELLENT" as was the coleslaw if a bit runny!!
I ordered the Birdseye burger with cheddar. I ordered it "Rare" as it was advertised as 6 oz. of Chuck but it arrived nearly well done. Consequently, it was not great but still good! My order of fries was huge and really crisp just the way I like them but they did not appear to me to be hand cut as billed! I had a coffee for beverage. Our server Paula was great! Overall Birdseye offers good value and is worth another detour if in the area! Total bill was $27.31 including tax but w/o tip!More
Son was doing a revolutionary war re-enactment at Hubbardton, needed dinner. A great dinner not overly expensive, good home cooking! Would try again if in Castleton....best part of meal was milkshake!!
Enjoyed a nice simple delicious dinner for two and great desserts on a busy night that their credit card machine had died and the staff did a fantastic job of letting customers know and talking through them though it. Great service amidst it all.
Ten minutes sitting at a counter with not even an acknowledgement of my presence - no greeting, no menu, no place setting, no nothing! This must be where people who are not hungry go to eat. Never have I seen a service business totally ignore...its service obligation - I won't be back, and will recommend to everyone I know that they avoid this place like the plague.More
I almost thought I was at Campo’s in Philadelphia when I tasted the Philly cheese steak sandwich at the Birdseye Diner last week! Onion rings (regular ones, not the thinner Birdseye version) were perfection!
The coffee was excellent, and best part of this thoroughly delightful...lunch!More
