All Seasons Diner II (Freehold, NJ)
Recently my good friend and I took a road trip to Freehold, NJ to go to the All Seasons Diner II. We wanted to go to a new diner and this seemed like a good one. I haven’t been to Freehold in a while. Many years ago (almost 6 OMG), I went to the All Seasons Diner in Eatontown after the NJ Half Marathon. Rereading one of my first diner reviews makes me realize how far in dinering I have come. Anyway.
All Seasons Diner II Atmosphere: A
The All Seasons Diner II is a large building located after a bridge on the highway. It stands out. The All Seasons Diner II isn’t a shiny, metallic building, but it’s a modern building with a large parking lot.
Inside the All Seasons Diner II, there is plenty of seating, including booths, tables, and a full-length bar. There is a dessert case as well as a salad bar. The salad bar looked massive, so I knew whatever I ordered, I wanted that.
All Seasons Diner II Coffee: A
The All Seasons Diner II serves the locally brewed Lacas coffee. It was brewed hot, fresh, and the waitress brought plenty of refills. It was one of the better coffees I’ve had recently.
All Seasons Diner II Food: B
The All Seasons Diner II menu has everything you can imagine in a diner. In fact, the All Seasons Diner II menu is one of the largest menus of any diner I’ve ever been too. I wasn’t sure what I was in the mood for but the salad bar looked appetizer, so I knew I wanted to order from that.
The All Seasons Diner II menu had so many specials, so I decided to order the pork chops from the early bird special. The meal came with soup, salad bar, the pork chops, 2 sides, and bread pudding. It was a lot of food. A lot!
For my soup at the All Seasons Diner II I decided to order Manhatten clam chowder. It wasn’t as hot as I like soup, but it tasted good.
The All Seasons Diner II salad bar had most everything a salad bar has. There were several different types of pasta salads, green bean salads, and most salad bar toppings. I was surprised the salad bar didn’t have olives though, but I’m a big olive fan. In all, it was a good salad bar and one of the better diner salad bars.
My pork chops tasted good. They weren’t rubbery or overcooked and I liked them—one of the better diner pork chops I’ve had recently.
For my sides at the All Seasons Diner II, I ordered a baked potato and carrots. Something got lost in translation and my waitress brought out green beans. I wasn’t that upset because the green beans interested me more. They were in a marinara sauce (which I’ve never seen them cooked that way.). It was exactly what it looked like: beans and onions in a marinara sauce. It tasted fine; it was just different.
All Seasons Diner II Dessert: C
Since my meal came with dessert, I ordered the bread pudding. The bread pudding came doused in cinnamon. It was good bread pudding; it just tasted like someone dropped a bottle of cinnamon on it.
All Seasons Diner II Service: A
The waitress was friendly and our food came out fast. I have no complaints.
All Seasons Diner II Cost: $
For the entire meal, it was $20.
