Bridge-Way Diner (Old Bridge)

Bridge-Way Diner (Old Bridge)

Recently I went to the Bridge-Way Diner (Old Bridge, NJ). I was in the Old Bridge area and wanted to miss the traffic, so I begged, Jess, to meet up with me.  After a confusing few turns, I made it into the parking lot.  After typing  “Bridgeway Diner”  a few times, I’ve realized,  it’s  “Bridge-Way Diner).Bridge-Way Diner Old Bridge NJ

Atmosphere: B
The atmosphere of the Bridge-Way diner is typical of many NJ diners. The outside is a typical building with a giant metallic sign. Something comical to me is there is no “Bridge-Way” sign on the front of the building. I feel like most restaurants have that.

Anyway, the inside has a full bar and plenty of booths and tables. What I do appreciate is you walk next to the dessert case, and there is a full salad bar.  Not many diners have either!

Coffee: A
At the Bridge-Way Diner, the coffee was brewed hot and fresh, and the waitress refilled it often. She also included an overflowing amount of whipped cream, which in my book is A++.

Food: A
It took both us a long time to order because we had no idea what we wanted. There were so many options.  I knew I wanted the salad bar so I decided to order off the specials menu. I haven’t ordered a lot of chicken specials at diners, so I opted for the greek chicken that came with 3 chicken breasts topped with olives, feta, and spinach.  It also came with the salad bar, soup, potatoes, a side, and dessert. Oh. My. Word. The Bridge-Way Diner might have more food then any other diner I’ve been to.

For my soup, I chose the seafood bisque. It was good and had a slight kick to it. It was one of the better seafood bisques I’ve had, and there was plenty of crab.

The salad bar was my favorite because they had a well-stocked salad bar with dressed salad, three-bean salad, beets, grape leaves, and even bread. As far as restaurants go, it’s one of the better salad bars I’ve been too.

My chicken was delicious, and I’ve never had a Greek chicken special, so I don’t have anything to compare it too.  The chicken was cooked well, and there was plenty of olives, feta, and spinach.

I chose the mixed vegetables and homefries for my sides which were both excellent. By that point, I was pretty much full.

Service: A
The waitress was kind and refilled our beverages often. I always appreciate waitresses and waiters that show their personality and she definitely did.

Dessert: A
Since my meal came with dessert and I’m a cake fiend I decided to get the Bridge-Way Diner cake. It was a chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting.  It was definitely good and not too dry.

Jess got the seven layer cake which was extremely good. I think next time I go, I’ll get the 7 layer cake. Each layer was filled with mouse frosting. As a frosting fiend, that’s my type of cake.

Price: $
For my entire meal and coffee, it was $17. For the average person that would be 2-3 meals.

Overall Summary/Would I Come Back?
I really liked the Bridge-Way Diner, and it’s definitely one of my more favorite diners in the Old Bridge area. I would come back if I’m in town!
