dinners are very average we do like the breakfast sandwiches. But prefer not to eat there usually call ahead and [pick the sandwiches up.

“Local spot”
Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

Popped in the Blue Moon Diner after driving around Gardner in search of a local restaurant. Had the 'diner' smell as soon as you walk in. Doesn't seem to be the place to get many travelers, but the food is money! Everything is hand-made in house, according to the waitress, and all diners in our group of four enjoyed their meal on this cold December day.

“Never go anywhere else for breakfast when in Gardner”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

I love this old diner that gives you an experience of what the old days were like. The staff are friendly and the breakfasts are cooked quick and among the best I have had. What it lacks in luxury it more than makes up with character, quality of food and service.

“Great Diner Atmosphere and Eggs Maryland!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

One of the things that I look for in a restaurant/diner is an interesting menu. The Blue Moon Diner has a great menu full of interesting choices for breakfast including a couple different types of hash and five types of Eggs Benedict. Last year I was on the "Hankerin' for Hash" tour when I found the Blue Moon Diner. This year it's all about the Benedicts. I love seafood and Eggs Benedict, but I also love hash, so it was a choice between Eggs Irish (poached eggs with hash on English muffins with Hollandaise sauce) and Eggs Maryland (poached eggs with crab cakes on English muffins with Hollandaise sauce). I didn't get enough seafood on my vacation, so... It was great! Great diner atmosphere too and a nice destination for a motorcycle ride.

Great breakfast, friendly staff, Crowded but probably due to the delicious food and cheap prices! Worth going to, Hours are limited and I don't know them, but several times got there after they already closed! =(
