The Summit Diner is a landmark in town and not to be missed if you're hungry, or visiting. Want to know what's going on in town? Go to the DIner.It's got classic diner breakfasts (Uuuge..!!!). Great lunch specials include their fabulous fries, slaw and pickles. My favorites are (breakfast) ham, egg and cheese on toasted rye bread or roll, and (lunch) pastrami on rye with deli mustard, fries and pickles with bean soup.

This place is an ol’ school diner at it’s best. Service is efficient, sometimes stoic but fine. Food is classic Jersey Diner fare. Breakfast in the Summit area, hit this place its well worth it…..

It's fun to eat in this old fashioned diner. It is cozy with typical diner food. My western omlette was good, but not great. Service wasn't too friendly, but it was very quick. Home fries were yummy. Warning for the ladies - if you go to the ladies room, it is very tiny!

This is a fun diner, set in an old train car. It's just across from the Summit Train station. Nothing fancy, but good diner food.

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!
