“Desperate Diner”
Review of Barnegat Diner

One must be desperate to eat at this strip mall hash house. Why it takes so long to get food out of the kitchen when there are only three customers is a puzzlement. Other diners in the area have better food, lower prices, and more attentive wait staff.

Tucked away in Gunning River Mall is the Barnegat Diner. Food was very average, service was mediocre, and atmosphere was non-existent. Even a diner prices there are far better places to go in the area. Try Kristies in Waretown or Stafford Diner in Manahawkin. Both are much better.

This seemingly tiny diner is huge in customers' satisfaction and frequented by 'always-go-there' consumers. Once inside, the vast spaces do fill up quickly, by patrons who know the great taste, excellent value, and wonderfully pleasant staff.
Whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, the menu variety and reasonable prices do entice us to keep coming back.
All staff are hard working, attentive, professional, and very happy to be serving you. Along with the reasons listed above, cleanliness, varied menu items, and quick service are some of the reasons we dine here 2 to 3 times each week.
There's a banquet room, four or five steps up/on a higher level, which isreserved often by various groups/families. The area can also be divided for two or more groups at one time.
The whole atsmophere including fantastic, dedicated, and efficient staff, delicious & varied fare, and very reasonable prices will continue to keep us as regular diners.
There is not enough space to write all the kudos the Barnegat Diner deserves!
