Recently I went to the Amwell Valley Diner in Ringoes NJ. It’s only about an hour from me, so it’s surprising it’s taken me this long to venture up there.
I arrived around noon on Sunday. I expected it to be more crowded, but I quickly found a booth.
The Amwell Valley Diner is an old school metallic diner. It matches everything you visualize in a diner from the chrome exterior to the powder blue booths inside. There are plenty of booths, tables, as well as a full-length bar.
The Amwell Valley Diner brews the local Lacas coffee which was a nice surprise. Even though the mug was small, it was refilled often.
The Amwell Valley Diner has all of the stereotypical diner options: eggs, wraps, and a few dinner options. There isn’t anything unique on the menu, but it has enough options to please anyone.
I decided to order the new Mediterranian sampler. It came with olives, hummus, pita, Tzatziki sauce, and an olive tapenade. It was kind of thrown together and could have used a better presentation. Other than that, it was good. There was nothing special but a good appetizer I would order again.
The food came out quickly, and the waitress was friendly and funny. It was clear all of the waitresses enjoyed their job and working there.
For my appetizer, gyro, and coffee it was $18.
Overall Thoughts/Would I come Back?
