“Good food, good people”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

We stopped off at the Park Wood Diner after a red-eye flight. Tired and stinky we stumbled in after reading great reviews online.

Arriving before 8:30am on a Sunday (especially Easter/Passover) is a good thing. This place filled up fast!

We were pleasantly greeted and promptly sat in a booth. The service was fast and efficient. Our food was out in 5 minutes.

Food was very good. We had the French toast and a bagel platter. Standard diner fare, exactly what you'd expect.

Everything about the Park Wood Diner was pleasant.

“Perfect of its kind.”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Never disappoints. Perfect of its kind. And the Park Wood was there for all during power outages in Hurricane Sandy. They worked off generators and with little or no heat to provide hot soup and meals to all comers.

“Fantastic/clean diner”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

You can tell this diner is run with a firm hand. It's fabulous. Breakfasts run from the usual fare to the outrageous like pumpkin walnut french toast. The specials are always fresh. The steak is huge and tender as if you got it in a restaurant. The burgers are great and juicy...sandwiches fresh. Coffee is usually perfect, and if you don't like it, they'll make a fresh cup. Take out is fast. Families are welcomed and it is packed out on weekend mornings....but, so worth the wait. Free mints and cookies at the door! Service is fast and professional and the place is amazingly clean. A credit to the owner! Oh, and a beautiful outdoor seating area for meals as well. They also have music some nights.
