Royal Diner (Vineland)

Sadly, the Royal Diner (Vineland) is now closed.

Lately, I’ve spent a bit of time in the Vineland area, and I’ve wanted to check out the Royal Diner. The Royal Diner used to be a Friendly’s, which is apparent from the exterior. Royal diner vineland

Royal Diner (Vineland) Atmosphere: B
The Royal Diner exterior looks like an old Friendlys. There are plenty of signs outside saying now open.  I’m not sure how long ago it was transformed. That being said, it’s a big building with plenty of parking.

The inside is one big room with plenty of booths, tables, and a salad bar.  You never feel like you’re sitting on top of anyone.

Royal Diner (Vineland) Coffee: A
The coffee was brewed hot and fresh, and the waitress brought plenty of refills. It was good.

Royal Diner (Vineland) Food: B
The Royal Diner menu has plenty of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. There is nothing unique, but it has all of the usual diner options.  It is advertised they have plenty of flavors of ice cream too (Is that what Friendly’s is known for?)

I decided to order the beef gyro and the salad bar.

The salad bar at the Royal Diner had plenty of options. It had everything a small salad bar typically has: lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and several kinds of salad dressings. It also had beets, bread, coleslaw, soup, and three bean salad. I thought it could use a few more options, maybe spinach or another green.

The beef gyro was good. It has a little bit too much tzatziki for my liking but other than that good.

In all my meal was good, nothing out of the ordinary but nothing bad.

Service: A
I have to say, the waitresses and hostess were one of the best of any diner I’ve been too. They were all kind, funny, the food came out quickly, and I had plenty of refills. I couldn’t ask for a better experience.

Cost: $
For my coffee, gyro, and salad bar it was $16.

Overall Thoughts/Would I come back to the Royal Diner (Vineland)?
I liked the Royal Diner and thought it was a good stop. I would go back.

  1. Didn’t know that friendly’s had salad bars. I do wish there were more diner’s in the midwest that had salad bars. I think the only salad bar that I can go to close to where I live is Ruby Tuesday’s. Not my favorite restaurant. 🙁

    1. I don’t if Friendly’s has salad bars but this diner did. I haven’t been to a Friendlys in maybe 10 years. Ruby Tuesday salad bars were good!
