“Not so good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is my third time there and I'm going with the three strike rule. This time I orderd a Chef salad to go and that is what I got but as for quality its just not there. The salad was $12 and the lettuce was brown and there was a long black hair in it. On the other visits we have had similar issues. It was a long wait for it to open and what a disappointment!!!!

“Nice diner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Ate at the diner twice so far; once for breakfast and once for lunch. There is a large selection of food to choose from and everything I ordered was good. Service is quick and the atmosphere is nice, although rather loud depending on where you are seated. All in all, it's diner food ... so if diner food is what you want, this is the place to go if you're in Flemington/Raritan.

“It's a diner.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

I was shocked to hear that there was a wait for two on a Weekday evening last week. Then, I had dinner and realized it was simply because it is new and everyone wants to try it out. Well, news flash- it is a diner. All the food comes straight from already made containers or a freezer bag. My mom's hamburger was very well done when she ordered it medium, etc., etc. My recommendation is to go here and order DINER food not anything fancy shmancy. I got a reuben that was quite good and an unsweetened iced tea. Be reasonable and you won't be disappointed. In my opinion, the owners are undeservingly cocky which was odd- example, "Oh yes, don't worry! The food is SO worth the wait!!" huh? Also, when I checked out the banquet room- another "owner" said - "Oh yes, have your party here!!" I said- "what party?" and he said, "Don't you have anything to celebrate?"
WOAH.

Enough Said.

“Finally Open”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

Very nice interior, upscale diner. Good service and great bread sticks (warm & made fresh). The stuffing w/the pork was very good and not mushy or runny. Definitely a step above others.
