    This is not a typical diner & far surpassed our expectations. The service was top notch and the food was fabulous. Farmer's omelet packed with deliciousness. Also noteworthy were the fluffy pancakes!

    Hands down my most favorite place to eat in NJ. Skylark salad to lamb chops r all prepared to perfection. Visit the sister diner on rt 18 in E. Brunswick (the Skylark). Same quality but better prices!

    Odd booth design. Kind of like how Friendly's does it, without an actual partition in the middle. Also the complementary bread is probably one of the best tasting breads I've ever had!

    Great menu...never a bad experience... One of my favorite places to eat. Generally they change up the main courses seasonally to keep a variety of tastes and flavors... Exquisite.

    For foodies! Not your typical diner. Much more thoughtful menu. Waitstaff are knowledgeable and super friendly. A favorite spot.

    Not your average diner...this is a luxury establishment. Always something amazing here ..menu & portions have gotten smaller and prices higher but seriously always so so good.

    Loved the Heuvos Rancheros, non traditional but everything on plate was filled w/flavor. Deserves its 'best diner' designation, a foodies choice

    The Dinner Menu is the same as the lunchtime menu except the owner has separate menus. Dinner (everything is a la carte) prices can average anywhere from $3 up per item!

    So not really diner fare per say - a bit more gourmet/fancy, but still delicious! They have classic sandwichs and breakfast, and higher end dinners. Too pricy tho. So more special occasion...

    Weekdays for breakfast wont break the bank here...but for all 3 meals visit it's sister diner on rt 18 in E. Brunswick (the Skylark). Same quality but better prices!

    Omg...what a great place. Upscale diner. In-house made bread...napa burger is the best. Goat cheese and beet salad...yummy

    Breakfast has gone downhill here. Omlettes are routinely overcooked. However, the bloody mary is one of the best I've ever had. Bartender told me they roast their own tomatoes to make the mix.

    Great diner, but don't come expecting a traditional diner menu. Very limited selections to give an upscale feel. Everything is delicious, though.

    I was so impressed that they had healthy choices on the menu like grass-fed beef, and offered a gluten-free bun. Very unusual menu options.

    I love this diner. Fresh ingredients with good coffee/pastries. Pricey place but at least the food backs it up. Parking lot can get annoying.

    Came on a Saturday at 2pm. House/techno music in the diner area was unappealing. The food quality is great but the portions are small and the prices are high. Breakfast is the best option

    Good wine list. Also sign up for their loyalty card, good at all their restaurants, gives $20 after spending 250.

    Food is good, but too expensive. They charge $7.50 for orange juice! Also they won't split checks. This place is not good for groups.

    Not really a diner anymore, more of a restaurant. They got super expensive and breakfast isn't even on the regular menu anymore, you have to ask for it.
