The Point Diner (Somers Point)

The Point Diner (Somers Point, NJ)
Recently I was in Somers Point and wanted to go to a new diner. I’ve been to the Windjammer several times and decided to switch it up and go to the Point Diner.  This Point Diner isn’t to be confused with the Point Diner in Fairview or the Point 40 Diner in Monroeville.

When I got to the Point Diner on a Sunday for lunch, it wasn’t too crowded. That as surprising because usually, lunchtime on a Sunday morning is the most crowded time for diners.

The Point Diner Atmosphere: B
The exterior of the Point Diner is a retro, shiny, and a stereotypical diner. The Point Diner looks like it’s been around for quite some time.

The interior of the Point Diner has plenty of booths, tables, and a full-length bar.  There appears to be a giant room in the back with the ability to host parties.

The Point Diner Coffee: A
The Point Diner coffee was brewed hot and fresh and the waitress refilled it often. I couldn’t have asked for better coffee.

The Point Diner Food: C
The Point Diner menu has everything you expect in a diner menu and nothing more. There aren’t many healthy options, but there are plenty of omelets, wraps, and dinner options.

Point Diner Somers Point salad

I was craving pork chops, so I decided to order those. The pork chops came with two sides and soup or salad.

I chose a salad and beets as my side. The salad was bland and I was thankful I didn’t order it as my entree. The beets were from a can but fine.

When the pork chops came out, I was excited because it was a large portion. Sadly, they were dry and not as good as I hoped.

The Point Diner Service: B
The waitress at the Point Diner was friendly, but the food took a while to come out. You would have thought the diner was jampacked full of people.

The Point Diner Cost: $
For my pork chops and coffee, the cost was $18.

Overall Thoughts/Would I come back to the Point Diner?
I didn’t dislike the Point Diner, but there are a lot of other options that I like better. The food was decent, but it was nothing unique or unusual. Somers Point and Ocean City are both nice spots if you are looking for a pleasant shore getaway and a diner along the way.
