Vegetable soup was hearty and full of flavor. Chicken parm sandwich was fair. Tomato sauce could have used spicing up. Menu is large and offers dinner selections also. Service was attentive.

My family wanted to eat here and so I had to cave. I am not a diner person since there aren't really healthy fresh options at them. Food was ok, nothing special and prices were average. Wait staff was polite and accomidating.

Mom and I just ate here tonight. We came here years ago and it was very good. We ordered a medium rare T Bone Steak, which came 1/4" thin, if that, and tough as shoe leather (the steak knife had trouble cutting through it). Burnt. Served in burnt fatty water. Disgusting. I sent it back and ordered something else. The... More

If you are looking for an all American diner, I recommend this place and don't pass on the pancakes-they are the best I have ever tasted. Close second is the French toast.

This is by far the cleanest diner I have been in! Even the soda and shake machine were shining! There were hanging plants in each window and I should speak of the food! We had omelets. Great tasting and their were so many choices. Wait staff friendly and were always there with a cup of coffee. We stayed at Paradise... More

Nothing special here...the usual breakfast/diner experience. The owner was a little creepy...kept walking by our table, offering coffee etc. more than was really necessary

If you're in the Tannersville, PA area for shopping, the Pioneer Diner is a great place to stop in for quality food. On the way back from New York City, my family and I stopped in for lunch. I had a gyro platter with really good French fries and a piece of Baklava for dessert. The atmosphere and dining areas... More

We had breakfast twice here during our stay in Mount Pocono. The staff is friendly. The coffee was very good. The pancakes and home fries were excellent. We enjoyed the atmosphere of a hometown, traditional diner.
