I drove out of my way to go buy this place. I have eaten here many times before and always had tasty good value for the money spent food. What a major disappointment. First new owners and prices are higher. The food was served after a long wait with the scrapple cold and overcooked. I think it was cooked earlier... More

Been a while since I was last here. Convenient location with adequate parking.Place is clean and quiet. Got seated promptly and greeted by costumed waitress for Halloween. Ordered waffle and side of pork roll served promptly and hot. Coffee was hot and served first Booths are in good repair no tears or bad padding. Clean windows so I can watch... More

I had the meatloaf mini meal. It was very tasty and a large portion. Took 1/3 home for lunch tomorrow. My husband had the beef stew which was one of the evening specials. It also was very tasty. We both had the chicken rice soup. Very good. We definitely recommend the Point 40 Diner for a good home cooked meal.

R.I.P. Point 40 Diner. New management has taken over, and not for the better. I have been ordering onions with my home-fries for 20 years, no problem, today I got charged 50 cents extra. My husband also got his first dried out egg's Benedict ever here. Are the cooks and waitresses fleeing the sinking ship? They also upped all of... More

We stopped by the Point 40 Diner on the way home from Baltimore Maryland. What a wonderful surprise. We both got the Maryland Crab Cake Friday Special. It came with a generous salad, rolls and cornbread, two giant crab cakes, large portion of very good mac and cheese and stewed tomatoes and a dessert. The cost was just $9.95. What... More

As you enter the diner you come face to face with a rotating display of yummy cakes and pies. We visited for breakfast, which was excellent! The service was prompt, even though the place was quite busy. The coffee cup was kept full and our server was pleasant. I had a 3 egg omelet and home fries. Enough food to... More

Good for breakfast any time of the day. For dinner they have a great selection of mini-meals. This is an easy stop for those using Route 40 on their way to the shore (just south of Woodstown).

Stopped in on way back to Vineland from Woodstown. This is an average NJ diner. Service friendly and attentive. Locals friendly. It is all in what you order. Breakfasts are the best in a NJ diner, love that they are usually served all day. However, at lunchtime, I ordered a cheese steak, it was average, at best. Husband orderd croquettes.... More

This has become our go to restaurant on our way home from our vacation in Sea Isle City. Have been stopping there for several years now and have found the restaurant offers a great menu for breakfast.
