Alexis Diner (Denville, NJ)
After hiking the Mahlon Reservation and Headley Overlook, I stopped at the Alexis Diner. When I arrived around dinner time, it wasn’t crowded and there were plenty of booths and tables open. I got a booth in the back, which was peaceful.
Alexis Diner (Denville) Atmosphere: A
The Alexis Diner is everything you expect in a diner. The atmosphere is big, shiny, metallic, and stands out in a local shopping center. The inside is lit by blue lights with plenty of booths, tables, and a full-length bar. There is an extensive dessert case towards the front with plenty of delicious looking treats.
Alexis Diner (Denville) Coffee: B
The coffee at the Alexis Diner was good but nothing unique or unusual. That’s been the trend lately. It wasn’t the best or worst, just average.
Alexis Diner(Denville) Food: B
After hiking, I was hungry. Alexis Diner menu has 10+ pages of food, so you’ll struggle not finding what you’re looking for.
I can never turn down a good Greek platter and ordered the “Greek Pikilia” for an appetizer. It came with olives, spanokopita, grape leaves, pita, and tomatoes. It could have used hummus to round it out, but other than that it was good.
For my entree at the Alexis Diner, I ordered the “Heartburn Hotel” which came with hot pastrami, imported swiss, cole slaw, and spicy mustard. The sandwich itself was good, but could have used more mustard. It also came with good French fries, but nothing unusual.
It was so much food; I ended up bringing some home.
Alexis Diner (Denville) Service: B
The waitress was friendly and one of the best I’ve had. I was disappointed because both the appetizer and entree came out at the same time. It wasn’t a make or break for coming back, but I doubt I would have ordered both if I knew they would come out at the same time.
Alexis Diner (Denville) Cost: $$
For the coffee; appetizer, and meal, it was $30. It’s one of the most expensive diners I’ve been too.
Overall Thought of the Alexis Diner (Denville):
I liked the Alexis Diner, and I would go back if I’m in the area. It’s expensive though.
