This is quite simply the BEST comfort food place to eat in all of New Jersey! While I don't live in town, I frequently find myself craving a meal at the Summit Diner. It is like going home. The men behind the counter (especially Billy) are so warm and welcoming and we also very much like the younger dark haired daytime waitress who is incredibly sweet. The breakfasts are wonderful! I can especially recommend the ham and eggs. I don't know of any place that I can go to and get ham which is cut off the bone. It is amazing! The soups are excellent and are homemade. It is a great place to take kids and you will never be disappointed with your meal. It is so worth driving to Summit because I know that wonderful food and wonderful people will be there when I walk in the door. It is an incredible value as well. Truly love this place!

If you like nostalgic diners with very good food THIS is the spot. Classical in every sense. I had delicious split pea soup, and a grilled cheese. He had the meat loaf dinner, which could serve a small family. Simply to be gluttons we tried the cheese cake dessert, and it was the perfect blend of rich flavor and light texture. In other words, save room for it. Unexpected, I know. But get the cheese cake for dessert.

This 1938 diner is truly a classic. Walking into Summit Diner takes you back in a flash to that era. Eight booths and twenty stools at the counter this diner looks and still probably handles the same way it did back in the late 30's. Lots of good home cooked food at a low price.

Leave your diet at the door and go in to enjoy yourself and the atmosphere, it is well worth it.

If you find yourself close to Summit, New Jersey treat yourself to this little jewel, Summit Diner.

Greasy Diner - gruff service- but THE BEST breakfast! Be prepared for a line out the door. It's worth the wait.
