Golden Eagle Diner (Bristol)

A few weeks ago, I went to the Golden Eagle Diner in Bristol, PA.  It’s only about a half an hour away, and while it doesn’t count towards my New Jersey Diner total, it’s still local to me.  I had heard the Golden Eagle Diner was a good diner.  I had a free evening, so I thought, why not head up there?

In summary, I wish I hadn’t gone to the Golden Eagle Diner 

Golden Eagle Diner Atmosphere: A 

The Golden Eagle Diner does have one thing going for it and that’s the atmosphere.  The Golden Eagle Diner has huge windows, plenty of parking and the inside has interesting and unique tables. We sat in a cute booth.

Golden Eagle Diner Coffee: C 

There was nothing or unique about the coffee and it was room temperature.  The Golden Eagle Diner coffee wasn’t the worst coffee I’ve had, but it was closer to the bottom.Golden Eagle Diner

Golden Eagle Diner Service: B 

The waitress at the Golden Eagle Diner was nice.  She took our orders, but it felt as if she was avoiding our table.  There were only two other parties in the restaurant so it wasn’t crowded.  She only came over to our table to bring the drinks and then the food.

Food: D 

The Golden Eagle diner menu has all of the typical “diner” options.  I ordered a burger.  The waitress asked if I wanted Cole slaw and a pickle.  I said yes, little did I know the Coleslaw and pickle would be an extra $2 charge.  I don’t love coleslaw enough to order it as an additional side. I’ve never been to a restaurant that charged for Coleslaw.  The burger itself was clearly a frozen patty that they overcooked. Nothing from anyone’s meal looked fresh.  It was reasonably obvious everything was frozen and then cooked in the microwave.  It’s hard to truly mess up a burger, but they came close.  It was edible, but it wasn’t great.  Golden Eagle Diner

The food was in the worst five restaurants I’ve been too. 

Cost: $$

For my coffee, burger and extra Coleslaw, it was $20.  It wasn’t worth it at all.

Overall thoughts/Would I Come Back to the Golden Eagle Diner (Bristol)? 

The Golden Eagle Diner (Bristol) was one of the worst diners I’ve been too and I probably won’t be back.  I never say never, but there would have to be a very good reason for me to go…

  1. Last week my son was home and a new restaurant had just opened. It was a BBQ and grill type and I said ok. So disappointing…the inside looked like a large warehouse with picnic tables and there was very few options on the menu. We chose a beef brisket on a bun with coleslaw and it was certainly not worth the price.
