Bridgewater Diner (Bridgewater, NJ)

Earlier in the month, I met Danielle and Amelia up at the Bridgewater Diner in Bridgewater.  I’ve driven by the Bridgewater Diner several times and I always wanted to stop, but it never happened. Even though I told Danielle our friendship was strong enough to go to restaurants that weren’t diners, we ended up there.Bridgewater diner

The Bridgewater Diner was more crowded than most places on a Sunday night.  That’s always a good sign.

Bridgewater Diner Atmosphere: B
Getting into the parking lot of the Bridgewater Diner is terrifying. It’s located in the middle of the main road so you must make a left.  There is no left turn lane, so you hope cars behind you are paying attention because they have to come to a stop or go around you from over 40 mph.

The inside is that of a typical diner.  There are plenty of booths, tables, and a bar.  We were lucky we got a booth in the back.  When we were leaving almost every table was taken.

Bridgewater Diner Coffee: A
The coffee was brewed hot and fresh. The waitress brought a small kettle so I could continue to refill my own drink.

Being able to refill my own coffee was nice.  The coffee itself was good.

Bridgewater Diner Food: A
I wasn’t sure what I wanted at the Bridgewater Diner, which seems to be a common theme.  There are plenty of options on the Bridgewater Diner menu from all-day breakfast to lunch, and dinner.  I decided on the pork chop special.  I have been in a pork chop mood lately.  It was a lot of food.

First, it came with a salad which was bigger than most side salads.  The salad itself was good, but I do appreciate when the dressing is mixed in.

The pork chops came topped with a balsamic glaze and onion rings.  I chose their squash special and baked potato.  The pork chops were cooked perfectly, and I liked the glaze they used.

The squash was one of the best diner sides I’ve had in a while.  The baked potato was a baked potato and nothing too unusual about it.

Bridgewater Diner Dessert: B
The meal at the Bridgewater Diner also came with dessert. I chose the Smores cake to go.  The cake itself was a bit dry but in all not too bad.  It had a lot of whipped cream, marshmallows, and chocolate.  I wasn’t sure exactly what I was expecting with a smores cake, but it was decent.

Bridgewater Diner Service: C
The waitress didn’t come around too much.  We could have used more water refill and napkins.  She was friendly, but we only saw her a couple of times.

Bridgewater Diner Cost: $
For all of my food and coffee, it was only $20.

Overall Thoughts/Summary of the Bridgewater Diner:
I enjoyed the Bridgewater Diner, and it was one of my more favorite diners in the area. I would come back.

  1. I’d totally be buying that smore’s cake JUST because I LOVE smore’s!! DO you think it possible that the cake wasn’t the BEST because you took it to go and it dried out a little?
