I haven’t posted a diner review in a few weeks. I don’t even know what my blog is about anymore. After running the New Jersey half on Sunday, Laura, Heather, Tim and I found the All Seasons Diner. We went to location right outside of Mammouth park but there is a second location in Freehold NJ as well.
As soon as we got there, they were able to accommodate us very quickly. (Which was actually shocking because it was relatively crowded). When we left there was at least a 45 minute wait.
This was a typical diner atmosphere. Although we sat in a booth, they did have another room filled with high tables and a bar. It was loud, crowded and exactly what I imagine when I visited a greasy spoon diner.
They were (suprisingly) able to add whip cream to my coffee. The coffee was also unlimited and was kept refilled the majority of the time. For four people who had been up since four am, that is a big deal.
I ordered a Greek salad with salmon. The Greek salad had (lots of) lettuce, tomatoes, and big chunks of feta cheese. I ordered pita bread on the side. (since it didn’t come with it). The salad itself was huge but I quickly realized it was a lot of “lettuce fluff” and not a lot of substance. It wasn’t terrible since I had gotten the salmon but it was so much lettuce. The food itself was good and I don’t have complaints about the quality of food, just that I would prefer more vegetables besides lettuce.
The menu itself was extensive and had a lot of options. A lot of the diner options were seafood and salmon. For a diner they have a lot of seafood options.
Dessert: We did not have any.
The cost of Tim and I’s meal was 37 dollars. Between my 9.95 large Greek salad (+5.95 with salmon) and Tim’s wrap as well as two coffees I found it to be reasonable. Two filling meals as well as two coffees, this is a relatively inexpensive meal in New Jersey.
I thought a few times the waitor had forgotten about us but in his defense the restaurant was crowded. It wasn’t anything to mark down for. It was good food and the price was decent so I would go back if I’m in the area. It was stereotypical NJ diner and if you are in the area I would recommend it.
Questions for you:
What is your favorite salad green? (spinach, lettuce…etc)
What is the longest you will wait in a restaurant for food?
I think I’ve waited 45 minutes before but I honestly eat pretty early so I don’t normally have a waiting issue. I don’t think I would wait more than 45 minutes though.
