Good food at a reasonable price. The staff was very attentive and pleasant. The diner itself is spotlessly maintained. As with most diners, I took home a lot of food. I will go back again.

Food not bad and service better than most. Problem with this diner is they have done nothing inside to make it attractive in any manner. Poorly lit and and just plain dull interior.

The Jersey Diner had just about everything you would want at a diner on their menu. The food was good, not your typical greasy diner food, more like the comfort of a home town restaurant. Good Food and decent prices for the area. I will...More
