The Deepwater Diner (Carney’s Point)
Last month we decided to stop on the border of NJ and Delaware. Carney’s Point is located off of exit one, and you can see the Delaware Memorial Bridge from the diner. We hungry and found this one. Despite the internet having limited information about the Deepwater Diner (Carney’s Point), we decided to stop.
Deepwater Diner Atmosphere: A
The Deepwater Diner has the trucker and family atmosphere to it. The diner itself is cute and has a very hometown feel to it. It’s also open 24 hours!
Something I found unique to the Deepwater Diner was the specials menu was handwritten on a notepad. How fun!
Deepwater Diner Service: A
It’s clear at the Deepwater Diner every member of the wait staff knows each other and enjoys working there. Our waitress was extremely friendly. It was clear she had a lot of parties in her section, but she always made time for us. We had a great experience with the service there.
Deepwater Diner Coffee: B
I enjoyed the coffee. It was brewed well, and the whipped cream was delicious, too, but the cup was abnormally small. I wish they had larger coffee mugs, but the coffee itself was perfect.
Deepwater Diner Food: A
There is no menu or even website for the Deepwater Diner, so we had no idea what to expect! We assumed we could find something, though. The menu is huge, and they have everything from breakfast to lunch specials and dinner. The Deepwater Diner has a lot of seafood specials (typing that out makes sense…Deepwater Diner and seafood).
The vegetable soup sounded good, so I ordered that as an appetizer. It was delicious and came out quickly. I think I blinked and it was out! It was as if they had dumped every type of vegetable into the soup. There were even Brussel sprouts. It was a different vegetable soup, but I liked it.
I ordered a burger with bacon, provolone cheese, and mushrooms. It was cooked perfectly. The steak fries were also excellent. After the RnR half marathon, I was craving red meat.
Honestly, the food was excellent, and I have no complaints.
Deepwater Diner Dessert: A
After walking by the dessert case several times, I knew I wanted a piece of carrot cake. Tim and I decided to split a slice with vanilla ice cream. Despite being already full, I had no regrets. The cake was very dense, as was the frosting.
For the burger, coffee, and dessert, the cost was 18.
Would I come back/Overall thoughts of the Deepwater Diner (Carney’s Point)?
The Deepwater Diner was one of the best diners I’ve been too, and I highly recommend it for anyone who is traveling through. The Deepwater Diner is within a mile of the start of the NJ turnpike and 295; it’s along the way for anyone going up and town the east coast!
