“Best of the Best Diners Along I-81”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This diner deserves a five-star rating for the service alone...but there is a lot more than that offered at the Middlesex. The service is so consistently friendly, and polite that it is almost unbelievable. It is great 100% of the time. The food offerings are quite varied and expertly prepaered. A true diner serving customers from the local area, truckers and tourists travelling I-81, as well as people who go out of there way to dine there. You can't miss at this place. Great breakfasts and lunches. Dinners are large and fresh. Super inexpensive. Don't forget to try there world-class coffee!

“Good food and lots of it.”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Casual place to eat with friendly people. From the moment you step in you hear laughter and friendly conversation. Quickly seated and everythingfromthere was excellent. Food was served quickly and everything was excellent. AND THEN ...
Their problem is they let their waitress add the bill at the side of the table. Our waitress needs to go back to simple mathclass. Over a fur dollar mistake isn't a good way to get a tip.
Cashier took carry of it once it was pointed out. She did question if we had something that wasn't on the bill? Didn't like to be questioned about a bill we never made.Waitress made the mistake, maybe this is a way to get more tips at the end of evening. Did not like to have my honesty questioned on their mistake. Ruined the evening meal.

“24hrs and always something good on the menu”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

This place has been there as long as I can remember coming here. The menu has almost anything you want. It's open 24hrs, so you don't have to rush to get there. It is moderately priced. And the food is consistently good.

Great place for "comfort" food. The meals are generous and tasty. The servers are efficient, fast and friendly. The prices are very reasonable.
