Recently I went to the Four Seasons Diner in Mayfair, Pa. I was in the area, and I’ve heard the Four Seasons Diner is excellent. After going to diners for almost 4 years, the closest diners I haven’t been too are in Pa or even De. (Which to be fair, Pa is only 15 minutes from my house, and Delaware is 30 minutes).
Anyway, I arrived at the Four Seasons Diner around dinner time. There was plenty of parking, and it wasn’t too crowded. My party and I quickly got a booth.
The outside is one long building next to a McDonalds with plenty of parking. The inside is lit up with neon signs. There are many booths, tables, and appeared a bar as well. I appreciated that the booths were very personal and you weren’t sitting on top of anyone. There was also a large salad bar in the back.
How many diners do you know with a fish tank? I think in the 250+ I’ve been too, I’ve seen a fish tank 5 times at most.
The coffee was excellent and the waiter refilled it often. There wasn’t anything unique or unusual about it but it was good.
The Four Seasons Diner has every option you could want or need. There were even some unique options I’ve never seen at a diner before like creole! I can appreciate a restaurant with a salad bar too. I was in a pork chop mood so I ordered that. It came with an overwhelming amount of food. I had run that day but still found myself unable to finish everything.
I started with the matzah ball soup and salad bar. The soup was good and I rarely see matzah ball soup have strips of chicken in it too.
The salad bar had a lot of options. It’s one of the better salad bars I’ve seen. There were several different kinds of greens, the usual salad toppings, three bean salad, beets, artichoke hearts, marinated mushrooms and pickled vegetables, cornbread, and even grape leaves. You can tell I like beets, artichokes, and Italian dressing.
My entrée came with pork chops, applesauce, and a baked potato. The pork chops were cooked well, and they weren’t too rubbery. They were some of the better diner pork chops I’ve had. The applesauce and baked potato were typical of a baked potato and nothing unusual about them.
Our waiter was one of the most friendly waiters we’ve had. He refilled our beverages often, plus our food came out fast. I couldn’t have asked for better service.
For my meal and coffee, it was $15. That is a lot of food.
Overall Thoughts/Would I Come Back?
I enjoyed the Four Seasons Diner, and if I’m in the area again, I’ve be back. I was surprised by how great the food was and it’s one of my more favorite diners in the Philadelphia area.
