“Lunch Respite on a Long drive”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

A couple times a year my wife and I drive from New Hampshire to the West Haven Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Before we return home we stop for lunch at the Duchess Diner. The food is delicious, the service is wonderful. And the portions are huge. We are really made to feel at home and what we can't eat there we box for dinner after we complete the return trip. For some reason we find diners the place to eat in Connecticut and we love it. If I were a patient in the medical center I would walk the few blocks or take a wheelchair if necessary to get meals at the diner.

“Old Style Traditional Diner - Good Food and Fair Prices”
Reviewed December 15, 2011

We have been going to the Duchess Diner for over 30 years. It is an institution on Campbell Avenue and is found next to the train tracks.

Their menu has something for everyone. We have gone there for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late night snacks.

I especially like their Greek Souvlaki.

Their portions are very generous and the wait staff is always friendly.
