Rehoboth Diner

Rehoboth Diner (Rehoboth Beach, De)

The Rehoboth Diner was a unique experience, to say the least.  When we arrived around 11 am, it was busy and most tables were taken.

Rehoboth Diner Atmosphere: B
The Rehoboth Diner sticks out on the main road. It’s not a big, shiny, metallic diner, but the “24-7” can’t be missed. The inside of the Rehoboth Diner is average size. You walk in next to a bakery.  There are several booths, tables, and a bar. We were sat at a table between booths. It’s my least favorite seating, but there are minimal choices when it’s busy.

Rehoboth Diner Coffee: B
The coffee at the Rehoboth Beach Diner was average. It wasn’t the best nor the worst, but it was decent coffee. I could have used more.

Low-quality photo and I didn’t realize it until I left.


Rehoboth Diner Food: C

The Rehoboth Diner menu has most everything a regular diner has. Since we got to the Rehoboth Diner around 11 am, we were only given a breakfast menu. I’m sure I could have asked for a lunch menu but decided breakfast was fine.  I decided to order the steak and eggs.

When it came out, I was disappointed that my steak wasn’t that big (for a $16 breakfast meal). Interesting because the Rehobeth Beach Diner is known for its big portions and generous portions. The steak itself was cooked medium rare, but it was bland in flavor. I chose scrambled eggs and rye toast. Everything was good, but not great.  Next time I go, I’ll probably order something else.

Rehoboth Diner Service: C
To preface, our waitress at the Rehoboth Beach Diner was great. She was friendly and working hard. The manager came by our table midmeal and asked us to move tables so another party could sit. It wasn’t a big deal, but weird.  As we were leaving, a man came storming in to talk about “how unhappy he was.”

Rehoboth Diner Price: $$
For my steak and eggs, plus coffee, it as $20. Which the meal wasn’t worth that.

Overall Thoughts/Would I Come Back to the Rehoboth Diner?
The Rehoboth Diner wasn’t the worst nor the best diner I’ve been too. I would be interested in trying something off the Rehoboth Diner lunch menu.

Blairstown Diner

Blairstown Diner

The Blairstown Diner is extra special because it’s the site of where the original Friday the 13th movie was filmed. It’s only fair that a movie that includes a diner is a New Jersey Diner. I have wanted to visit the Blairstown Diner for years, but the timing never worked out. When I was in the area last month, I was able to stop. Plus their social media is awesome.

Blairstown Diner

Blairstown Diner Atmosphere: A
The Blairstown Diner resembles any small-town diner. It’s a shiny, metallic diner that has stood the test of time. From the outside, it looks like a shiny, metallic New Jersey diner.

The inside of the Blairstown Diner has plenty of Friday the 13th memorabilia and even a Freddy Poster. It’s one of the smaller side. When we arrived, we got the lat booth next to the door. It’s one of my least favorite spots to sit because it gets cold quickly with the door opening and shutting.

Blairstown Diner

Blairstown Diner Coffee: B
The coffee was good, but there was nothing unique or interesting about it. I was hoping for a few refills.

Blairstown Diner Food: B
The Blairstown Diner menu has everything a regular diner has. It has daily specials including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There are plenty of omelets, pancakes, and breakfast specials. For dinner, you have daily specials like pork chops., sandwiches, and wraps.

Blairstown Diner wrap

I decided to order a corn muffin and veggie wrap. The corn muffin was excellent, and the waitress asked if I wanted it buttered (you bet). The eggie wrap was cooked well, but it was boring.Blairstown Diner wrap

It didn’t come with any sides and was kind of like a wrap placed on a plate.

Overall Thoughts/Would I Come Back to the Blairstown Diner?
I would come back to the Blairstown Diner and for the relation to the original Friday the 13th movie, I think anyone driving close should go. That being said, did I think it was the best diner in NJ? No, it’s right in the middle.

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.

Point Diner Somers Point

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.

Alps Diner (Wayne)

Alps Diner (Wayne, NJ)

After hiking with my good friend Shawn, we decided to stop at the Alps Diner in Wayne, NJ. Hard to believe Shawn is one of my closest friends, but we have yet to go to a diner together. I guess she was initiated.

Alps Diner Atmosphere: A
The Alps Diner sticks out in Wayne, NJ. The exterior is metallic, shiny, and the Alps Diner is abnormally tall. It’s hard to miss when driving by. Of all of the diners on NJ-23, the Alps Diner stands out the most.

The interior of the Alps Diner is like a blast from the past. There are plenty of booths, tables, and a full-length bar.

The Alps Diner coffee was okay but nothing to write home about. I was slightly disappointed that it was lukewarm.

Alps Diner Food: C

Known for their good food, the Alps Diner menu has every option you can imagine on a diner menu. I wasn’t sure what I was in the mood for. There is all-day breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I was between the pork chops and a gyro, so I decided to order the pork chops. The pork chops came with a salad, side, and potato. I ordered the greek salad and a side of corn.

The Greek salad was the best part of the meal. The dressing was tasty and the salad tasted fresh.

Sadly, both the pork chops were thin and tasted as if they had been reheated. I was disappointed with my meal. Was it edible? Yes, was it bland and boring? Yes.

Our waitress at the Alps Diner was great and the food came out fast. I couldn’t have asked for better service.

Alps Diner Overall Thoughts:
The Alps Diner was one of the most stereotypical diners out there. There was nothing unusual or unique, and the food was clearly frozen and reheated. If you are looking for a retro, stereotypical diner, Alps Diner is it. It’s right in the middle as far as diners go. Nothing terrible but nothing great either.

The Colonial Diner (Lyndhurst) has been on my to do list for a while. I’ve attempted to go a few times but it’s never worked out. When the timing this time worked out, I knew I wanted to go.

One of the most common diner names is Colonial Diner. There is the Colonial Diner in East Brunswick, in Fords, and in Woodbury. I’m sure there are more.
