“Solid Bet for good food at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

My wife and I have been going to the Niantic diner for a number of years and can truly recommend this eatery for its reasonably priced good food. It is a family place where you can take you kids to dinner without having to take a bank loan out. The establishment is what one would expect from a diner - casual open rooms with booths along the walls and a few tables in the center. There are two dining rooms one adjacent to the bar and the other a larger area off to one side upon entry. The restaurant is always clean and neat. The staff is congenial and will always greet you with a smile. They spend whatever time needed with you to ensure your dining experience is to your satisfaction. The majority of the staff have been there for a few years and are very efficient and know what they are doing.

The menu is rather large be it breakfast, lunch or dinner with board specials that should not be overlooked. The food is always fresh, served hot and taste great. Don't miss the fish sandwich for lunch as it is excellent. Dinner entree's are large portions guaranteed not to leave you hungry. The chicken parm is a favorite of mine. Don't miss the Monday - Wednesday special of two entree's (your choice) and a bottle of a modest wine for $20. Hard to beat and in these times a super value.

I highly recommend the Niantic diner for a great casual evening of good food without emptying your wallet.

Great service- waitress was personable, efficient and attentive without being smothering. Food was great, came quickly and was reasonably priced. Try the seafood!

“Decent family diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2009

Had breakfast this last weekend. The place was packed but we were able to get a table without a wait. The serving staff is friendly, young and efficient.No hostess to seat you, the waitress took our orders and the coffee was refilled by others, while food was brought out by someone else altogether. This was all done in a coordinated manner and the waitress came back twice to ensure all was like we liked it. One can't go wrong with this place so long as one's expectations are appropriate- it is a casual diner with godd, hearty food. Nothing fancy and nothing gourmet
