Our family has been eating at this diner for many years. Nick, an owner, greets us personally if he is there when we walk in. So does Donna, she always has a smile and special greeting. The food is always very good; we have been there for breakfasts, lunches and dinners. We even had a holiday dinner there once when... More

Being from Europe, I asked my colleague to take me out to a diner one evening. This diner was what I expected it to be: the interior I know from US movies, the waitresses,.... My colleague wanted me to try the Matze ball soup and also the disco fries. We shared those plates. As a main I took the Cheese... More

This place may have been great back in the day, but now it's just terrible. You can tell everything is either frozen or out of a can. Service is generally friendly, but that does not make up for the quality of food. Yes, portions are gigantic, but it doesn't matter if the food is not good enough to make you... More

Still here after all these years! Food is decent for a diner. I do think of it and stop in when I want. One thing- the after dinner time ( 8pm and onward - ) , there's always some drama overheard with the waitstaff. I've been here a bunch of times and the endless chatter from the waitstaff is very...

We went for a family dinner recently. The choices were varied, with one person having shrimp, one pot roast, a hamburger, and an "asian" dish (probably not super authentic, of course). Everyone liked their food, and the portions were huge! Not fine dining, but good basic meals with big portions, enough for two meals.

Is it possible to have a bad experience at a New Jersey diner? Well this one certainly didn't change that. Great food, large plates, great service with a typical Jersey girl waitress. Can't go wrong here.

This use to be a great place to eat but what I experienced was the nastiest and driest omelet ever I could even eat it and was afraid to send it back the cook or chef need to be trained or retrained awful

Was here for the late night munchies and was pretty happy with the food. The portion sizes are huge however and enough for breakfast too! The staff were pretty friendly!

It seems like the last few times I've been in the Menlo Park Diner something happened to make it less of a good experience. Today we went there for lunch & the service was mediocre at best. As the waitress brought our drinks she spilled some diet Pepsi on me, immediately staining the white skirt I had on. Not a... More
