“Good Fast Breakfast”
Reviewed October 1, 2011

Anytime we are travelling south on I-81 from Canada to the U.S.A. in the morning enroute to wherever we are going for a vacation trip which passes Watertown, Longways has been our breakfast stop for the past few years. Good food, served quickly for a reasonable price.

“Great diner experience”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

We just returned from a three day trip to finger lakes and enjoyed our lunch at Longways diner. This was a simple diner with great food, wait staff were pleasant enough, given the fact that they would serve some of your apps with paper plates and carelessly toss the cutlery on the table, but this only added to the great diner ambiance. The food temperature was also impressive and food was tasty. I whole heartedly recommend this diner for home style comfort food. You will not leave hungry and don't bother with counting your calories when you enjoy dining at this establishment.

“Love this Diner”
Reviewed July 8, 2011

Longways is just one of those places that you go to and you like it so much you just keep going back. Yes! Their food is good. Yes! They have a great breakfast. And YES! They serve a great dinner too. Our family has eaten here several times and each time we are never disappointed. They have daily specials and when you see someone eating it you just want to say I'll have have what he is having. They have the best blueberry pancakes in the area. I know because my husband eats bb pancakes at every place that serves them and he will swear it to you. The staff is really great too. They always bring out coloring books for the kids and they are super nice. Great food Great service Great prices and we drive away with happy bellies. You can't beat that!

“What a diner is supposed to be!”
Reviewed October 8, 2010

We go to longways at least once a month and have for years. It is always consistent. Many of the employees have been present for years and still provide great service with nice conversation. This is a diner with large four to six person booths and some four and two person ones. Seating at the counter is where one can watch the action of the cooks-really quite fun. The food is like you would get at home. From breakfast omelettes to the $5.79 Thursday meatloaf special, you will not go away hungry and you will receive money back from your $20. The place is clean, but the bathrooms need some overhauling. This is a true diner and sometimes you just need one to sit back read the paper and enjoy good food.
