“Princess gives the royal treatment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

Had a wonderful dinner tonight at a local 'diner'. Far more then a diner a restaurant. If you're lucky you will have Princess as your waitress. A charming young lady.

“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

I truly enjoyed my meal that I was served at Riverdale Diner in November. I had ordered Stuffed Chicken Breast Dinner. My waitress Princess ensured that my food was hot and exactly what I ordered. I will definitely be returning to eat there again. It was a true Diner experience with great atmosphere.

“Top Shelf Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

My family and I are always impressed when we eat at Riverdale. From the moment you walk through the doors you are treated like royalty. The wait staff is courteous, professional and sensitive to everyone’s needs. The staff is prompt taking your order and the food arrives quickly and is always fresh. For dinner we recommend trying the roast beef or the buffalo chicken salad. For breakfast our favorite is the western omelet and for lunch, you can’t go wrong with any of the freshly made sandwiches. If you are in the area, Riverdale is a must! Don’t wait.

“FIVE STAR DINING!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

Breakfast, lunch, dinner or any time RIVERDALE DINER is tops with us... in our view anything we've chosen from their extensive menu has always been delectable. When you have the excellent service and immaculate surroundings with a relaxing, friendly ambiance... there's nothing better for a palatable experience. With many restaurants in the area, Riverdale Diner's great food that's reasonably priced, attentive service and clean, friendly and enjoyable atmosphere, in our view is a stand out.

And don't forget they have good wines!
