We stopped by here on our way out of state. It doesn't look like much from the outside but inside you find a nice menu with reasonably priced food and a friendly staff. We've now visited twice. On the second visit there was only one server covering the entire floor herself but yet she remained pleasant and the food was... More

I had been given a gift certificate to the Putney Diner, a place I had never eaten. I had heard mixed reviews, so I was procrastinating on using the gift certificate. I walked in and was immediately greeted, told I could sit anywhere. I joined a friend already seated. One of the things I noticed immediately was how clean and... More

What a great diner! Good food with good specials. We like the eggs and the pancakes. Sit at the counterl, chat with the staff, and enjoy the local flavor.

Several of us enjoyed a hearty breakfast on a Sunday morning in October, prior to racing in a rowing regatta. Service was adequate, but we seemed to lose our server as we worked our way through breakfast and ultimately sought a bill. I'd recommend the diner, but don't be in a hurry!

We love to try local diners as we travel these United States and believe me, this is one of the best. We stopped here based on TA reviews & so glad we did. It does look awful on the outside but so cute and clean inside. We were greeted with a friendly smile and told to sit where we wished.... More

We wanted to try this 'diner' for a week. We finally found ourselves in Putney at 10:)) am and took the opportunity to give it a try. It looks like nothing from the outside. Actually it looks closed up, run down and abandoned. The inside is sparkling, charming and clean. A real local spot where the friends are many the... More

Been going here for years and some things after the new owners took over have improved. I think the last couple of times we went the service is better. There are less options on the menu then before which can be a good thing but I was sad to lose a lot of the veggie options that they had before... More

but bless its heart for still being there. I love it, but it's more out of nostalgia. Been going there for 25 years. The chocolate milk shakes are still great and bring up excellent memories of eating with my children.

IF you want to get "Fed UP" on a Great Breakfast, this is the place to GO! Almost more than you can eat, tasty, a fair price and Top Notch Service!

Not too fancy, friendly service, breakfast all day! And, fresh spinach for the omelet! We all enjoyed our meals, left satisfied, and the price was reasonable. Well done.
