I'm a big fan of old school traditional diners. I randomly stumbled upon the Snydersville Diner while traveling through the Poconos. Upon walking in, it was clear that this was a traditional old diner much like the one my grandmother worked in many years ago. It's nothing fancy. There's plenty of chrome all around. It looks like it hasn't changed one bit in the decades it's been open, yet it is clean and tidy.

The food is simple but delicious. There's nothing fancy; just your standard diner fare. Everything was hot, fresh and made exactly as it should be. Diner's are about comfort food and that what you find here.


The waitresses are your classic diner waitresses. They are friendly and more than happy to suggest the best items on the menu yet just gruff enough so you know that you probably don't want to mess with them. The only odd thing is that the waitresses wear what appears to be a uniform you'd find on an employee in a doctor's office. It's not a bad thing, just odd.

One of the things that our waitress provided a suggestion on was dessert. Snydersville Diner is apparently well known for baking a huge variety of pies. Since we were there in the Fall, I chose a slice of pumpkin pie. The waitress told me that she suggested that I order a slice of pumpkin cream pie instead. She was right, it was delicious. Though I suspect that it would be very hard to find a pie on their menu that isn't delicious!

Whether you want a delicious fresh cooked meal, yummy pie or just a step into the past, this diner is worth a visit.

I understand this place has a long history but it has evolved into just your typical diner food. Mass produced store rolls, overcooked vegetables, etc. It is a nice quick bite but nothing special.

The Snydersville Diner was once the place to go to for a good family style meal. good prices and good portions. Both are gone now...prices are high and portions are small. Pies are terrible and the menu is stale as can be. Very boring!

Stopped in on Labor Day on our way home from The Crossings. The atmosphere is a bit dated with 1970's wood paneling everywhere you look, but it adds to the vintage diner feel. Started with big steaming mugs of freshly brewed coffee and ice water. My husband ordered the Hot Roast Beef Sandwich with Homemade Mashed Potatoes and Creamed Cucumbers and I got the Chicken Fingers with Beer Battered French Fries and a side of Coleslaw. The salads arrived first and were fresh and cold and piled high in the dishes. The hot food was not far behind, gigantic portions on both plates. Everything was piping hot and fresh. We finished with an amazing slice of Coconut Cream Pie with two forks. The service was OK, could have been better, but they got the job done. The pie alone would bring me back. $26 before tip.
