This is our go to diner and we are never disappointed. Breakfast through late night snack the staff is friendly, service is efficient, food is great and the prices are reasonable. We visited twice this month = once for Saturday night dinner with our children and grandson and later in the month for lunch during a busy holiday shopping trip.... More

Food was so fresh and delicious. The portions are well worth the price. I had the beef brisket with au jus and mash potatoes. For $16. It came with soup and salad. So much food. Like getting 2 meals for the price of one.

Love this diner! Eggs, pancakes, waffles and French Toast all delicious. Best spot to go on the weekend for a very quick breakfast.

Nice decor, nice staff, good food & ok prices. It's just another diner... nothing exceptional. (We were just driving thru & Manalapan Diner was recommended to us. It seems to be a popular local place.)

Love this diner! The staff is wonderful and it is immaculate. We come here several times a month and I have never had a bad meal. Breakfast is amazing, coffee is good and the omelettes are huge! Love coming here :-)
