We ate breakfast here recently, we have eaten here in the past. The food was good, ample portions, and good service. Home fries were a bit under cooked, but it was late in the morning. Recommended!!!

The only thing better than the homemade meatloaf is the friendly people and the original diner. What a great lunch. I travel all over New England for work, and I love diners. The Blue Moon is the best of the best. It is worth a diversion of your travel to stop by and experience a true American institution.

After an appointment at the Colonial Hotel, my husband and I made a stop for lunch at the Blue Moon. We were not disappointed. We enjoy going to this type of diner and have visited several throughout New England.

I recently returned to work part time in Gardner, in my line of work you get to experience many different types of food and establishments. I have not been in here for over 10 years but I am certainly glad I returned. It is a classic "Diner" and the wait staff and cook were very friendly. I got two eggs,... More

It's nostalgic looking . It was even in a movie. I usually like dinners for their original ideas and home cooking. However, this one has failed on several occasions. I always give a place more than one chance. Anyone can have a bad day. The food was borderline spoiled. Long waits , not very clean. No more chances, three strikes,... More

Others will tell you about it used as a set for "School Ties" I just liked eating there as a regular. Over the years it has changed hands, and staff change occasionally. It is the go to place for breakfast or my favorite lunch: Meatloaf with Mashed potatoes and gravy, beans or homemade cole slaw finishes off the plate

The Blue Moon Diner on Main Street in downtown Gardner is a must for diner enthusiasts. Service is friendly, quick and efficient and the food is well prepared and abundant. My friends and I have had breakfast there several times and have never been disappointed. Get there early because the off street parking is limited in close proximity to the... More
