Millstone Diner

A few weeks ago, the famous owner of New Jersey Isn’t Boring, and I decided to meet at another diner.  We’ve reviewed several diners together, and she is the only one who likes NJ diners as much as I do.  Although she reviews everything related to New Jersey from diners to food trucks and ice cream.  If you are looking for something fun to do in NJ, I highly suggest checking her website out.

Atmosphere: A
Once arriving at the Millstone Diner, we felt extremely underdressed. The Millstone diner is new, and it’s clear the diner hasn’t always been a diner. If the restaurant didn’t have the name “diner”, I wouldn’t even consider it as one.  It’s upscale, modern and to feel undressed at a diner is a unique experience.

If the chandelier in the bathroom doesn’t give you a clue how fancy the restaurant was, I don’t know what does.  That being said the Millstone Diner is an excellent restaurant.  It has a beautiful atmosphere, just no diner vibe at all.

Coffee: A
The whipped cream is homemade, and they have their full coffee station with plenty of syrups. It was one of the best coffees I’ve had.

Service: A
The server was extremely friendly.  He was a personable person and made jokes.  He refilled the beverages and made conversation.  The food came out quickly and I have no complaints.

Food: A
When I found out the diner used to be a fancy Italian restaurant everything clicked. The Italian aspect hasn’t been lost, and the menu reflects the old restaurant.

There is pizza, pasta, salads and then at the end of the menu “all day breakfast”.  I decided to order the Greek Salad.  I saw another table have it and it, looked great.

Our meals came with garlic knots and soup. I liked the garlic knot basket, and it was always replenished…

The Greek Salad was everything I expected from a more fancy and upscale restaurant.  It was delicious, a large portion and the salmon was good. The food was fresh (read the lettuce was green) and that it came with everything a Greek salad should. My favorite aspects including pita bread, anchovies, and grape leaves weren’t missing.

Cost: $$
For my salad and coffee, the cost was $21.  It’s a more expensive meal but the quality of the meal was high.

Overall Thoughts/Summary:
I liked the Millstone Diner a lot. However, I struggle with calling it a diner.  It’s a much more upscale and modern restaurant.  I do like it and will be back.

Something I found interesting was there was no sign of dessert.  The dessert case in the front was empty, and the waiter made no mention for dessert.

  1. Love garlic bread and your salad looks amazing! But no dessert? Whaaaaaat ???

  2. Those garlic knots have me drooling. That alone would be reason for me to eat there. Glad you had a great experience. And LOLZ on the “diner with an identity crisis” — I don’t think I have ever had that experience.

  3. Oh yes to garlic knots. Every time you post a greek salad I get an immediate craving for stuffed grape leaves.
