“Fantastic Catskills Diner. Will be back.”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

I wish more roads had The Phoenicia Diner on them! The attention to detail is immaculate and extra kudos goes to the designers as menu and look of place was perfect. My son and I went for breakfast and it was one of the highlights of our American road trip. please open a UK branch!

“Make this a stop during your visit to the Catskills”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

My friends and I stopped at Phoenicia Diner on the way home from a gig in the Catskills. What a great diner this is! The menu was vast and offered great dishes using locally sourced ingredients, including locally fished trout. The owner and our server were very friendly. We each ordered egg dishes and they were all good. I got a biscuit along w/ my eggs and it was good. The coffee was tasty. The atmosphere was lively. It seemed like "the" place for people to go to eat in that neck of the woods. I highly recommend it.

“Fresh local food products cooked creatively”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

First of all, the location of this diner is idyllic, in the Catskill Mountain Reserve, with fantastic mountain views all around and the Esopus Creek across Rte 28. We like the fact that they use locally grown produce, meat, coffee, fruits, etc. The dishes are delicious - we have tried many of them and make it a point to stop here whenever we travel upstate NY. The staff is very friendly and easy going. You can taste the freshness and the richness of the food that is served here.

“Great Diner experience”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

Fun, authentic diner relocated by new owners. We had a great breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed the local characters who stopped by. Food was perfect. The experience was even better! We'll be back whenever we're in the area. Real Americana with great views. Try it!
