If I ever wrote a “small-town diner” review, this would be up there. The Trainer’s Midway Diner is located right off of Route 78 in Bethel, Pa. My husband and I were going to stop at the Sheetz up the road for a quick bite to eat, but then we saw the giant “Midway Diner” sign and decided to stop.
The Trainer’s Midway Diner in Bethel is attached to a Comfort Inn and looks like a common spot for Truckers to sleep and grab a quick bite to eat.
Trainer’s Midway Diner Atmosphere: C
Trainer’s Midway Diner is located off the main highway. The giant “Midway Diner” sign stands out, which is how we found it. The sign was the only reason we knew about it!
The inside is lackluster and has the small-town diner feel. There are plenty of booths, tables, and a full-length bar. The tables are decorated with personal art with the specials. Everything you can imagine with a small-town diner is there. We had no clue it’s called “Trainer’s Midway Diner” until googling it afterward. All of the signs say “Midway Diner.”
Trainer’s Midway Diner Coffee: B
The coffee at Trainer’s Midway Diner was brewed hot and fresh. The cups were tiny and I could have used a dozen more refills. Other than that, it was fine.
Trainer’s Midway Diner Food: B
The Trainer’s Midway Diner menu has everything a stereotypical diner has but no more. There aren’t many healthy foods, but it has all of the basic breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. The one unique item I saw was the eggie quesadilla so I decided to order that. It came stuffed with cheddar cheese, onions, and mushrooms. It tasted like a homecooked meal. The theme of the restaurant is things homecooked meals and this did not disappoint. If you are looking for a 5-star meal, you might want to look elsewhere.
Trainer’s Midway Diner Serice: C
The waitresses are the Trainer’s Midway Diner were young. We had friendly service, but we overheard most of them gossiping all of the time. It took a while for our food to come out, despite the Trainer’s Midway Diner not having many people.
Trainer’s Midway Diner Cost: $
For the eggie quesadilla and coffee, it as $10.
Overall Thoughts/Would I come back to Trainer’s Midway Diner?
Trainer’s Midway Diner was a good stop for what I needed. I wasn’t hungry, so it was a nice break. It wasn’t anything fancy, but I would come back if I’m around again. It’s a step up from fast food. If you need a hotel and diner stop along route 78, it would be a good one.
