Mays Landing Diner (Mays Landing, NJ)

Recently I went to the Mays Landing Diner.  I’ve found it more fun to ask Twitter to choose a diner based on a name.  I have to go to all 500+ sometime, right?  Anyway, after an appointment down that way, I ended up at the Mays Landing Diner.

I arrived at the Mays Landing Diner for dinner, and it was dark.  When looking, I had thought I had already been to the Mays Landing Diner.  It seemed so familiar.  Then I realized it shared a lot of characteristics of the Galloway Diner.

Mays Landing Diner Atmosphere: B
The exterior of the Mays Landing Diner is big, clean, and shiny. It was well lit up for the holidays.  The inside had plenty of booths, tables, and a full-length bar.  It was everything you picture in a diner.

Mays Landing Diner Coffee: A
The coffee was brewed fresh and hot every time.  The waitress brought out plenty of refills, and she added a lot of whipped cream.

Mays Landing Diner Food: B
The Mays Landing Diner menu is extensive.  The menu has everything you want and need in a diner.  Like many diners down the shore, it’s heavier on seafood.  I ordered the Philly cheesesteak and seafood bisque soup.

The soup was interesting.  I don’t know if I’ve ever had seafood bisque, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  It was a mix of Mariana and white sauce.  There was imitation crab (I like that…as well as usual crab meat of course) and had a kick.  In all, it was good.

The Philly cheesesteak was decent.  It wasn’t the best or the worst.  It was one of the biggest cheesesteaks I’ve had and was probably about a foot long.
