Northfield Diner (Northfield, NJ)
Recently I found myself in the Somers Point area. Since it was around dinner time, I decided to stop at a local diner. I had already been to the Windjammer which I’m a fan of but drove a little further north to the Northfield Diner.
When I arrived, there was only one car in the parking lot of the Northfield Diner. To be honest, I didn’t even know if the Northfield Diner was open. Luckily when I walked in, there were about 4 parties dining. Since it’s a locals area, my guess is they all walked!
Northfield Diner Atmosphere: C
The Northfield diner atmosphere is everything you hope in for. It’s a big, open, diner with plenty of booths, tables, and a full-sized bar. They have a few desserts towards the front.
There were, however, a few small quirks including not having placements and the blender being in the front. I guess someone was getting a milkshake or smoothie when we arrived because it was in full use. When they first started using it, I honestly thought something had broken in the diner.
Northfield Diner Coffee: B
The coffee at the Northfield Diner is decent. There is nothing unique or unusual about it, but it’s not bad either. The waitress added a bowl of whipped cream versus adding it directly on top. I don’t have any complaints.
Northfield Diner Service: B
The service at the Northfield Diner wasn’t bad, but it was slow for a number of people in the restaurant. It took over 25 minutes for our food to arrive which was surprising due to how empty it was.
Northfield Diner Food: B
The Northfield Diner menu is massive, and they have most anything a diner would typically have. In fact, it has one of the biggest menus I’ve seen in awhile. There were over 6 pages of menu options, including breakfast lunch and dinner options, plenty of salads, specials, and seafood.
At the Northfield Diner, I ordered a Jalapeño Burger. When it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. I wasn’t sure what to expect and realistically didn’t have high expectations.
The bun was perfectly toasted and tasted great. What impressed me was the jalapenos weren’t from a jar and were fresh. The patty itself was juicy.
The burger came with fries which were cooked well. I haven’t had steak fries in awhile.
For my burger and coffee, the cost was $11. I have no complaints.
Overall summary/thoughts of the Northfield Diner:
I enjoyed the Northfield Diner. The atmosphere of the Northfield Diner is a bit outdated but other than that I have no complaints. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first arrived, but the food was good, and I would come back. I was pleasantly surprised by the entire experience. There was nothing crazy or unique, but it was a quality stop.
