Recently I was in Ramsey, NJ near New York State. I’ve been to a lot of the diners near the NY border so finding a diner near the top I haven’t been too has been increasingly difficult. Even though I live nearly 90 miles from Ramsey and route 17, I’m actually very familiar with the area now from road races as well as hiking. I’ve passed the Majestic Diner a few times but never stopped.
The Majestic Diner looks like many North Jersey Diners. The outside is clean, modern, and open. When you walk in, you face the bakery and dessert case.
I enjoyed the personalized coffee mug that says: “Majestic Diner”. The coffee itself wasn’t the best or worst. It tasted decent. I do wish I could have more refills.
The Majestic Diner has a lot more upscale options. While they do have “traditional” diner items, they all have an upscale feel to it. The Majestic Diner is known for their Gluten Free options as well as their in house pastry chef.
Due to traffic, I got up much later than I wanted so I arrived hungry. I ordered the Mezze platter which came out quickly. It had plenty of grape leaves, olives, pita, and hummus. I ate it all embarrassingly fast.
There are breakfast options like chicken and waffles and dinner options like fish tacos.
I’ve had a craving for fish tacos lately, so I decided to order those. It came out with a side salad, which I had hoped would come out beforehand but came with the meal. The tacos themselves were good. It could have used another side like french fries, They were a lot spicier than I anticipated but I enjoyed them. They satisfied the random taco craving I was having!
Even though it was quiet that particular evening, the service was slow. The food came out quickly, but I could barely understand what our waiter was saying. The manager did seem nice though!
The Majestic Diner (Ramsey) is more expensive than most diners because it is a more upscale restaurant. The cost of my meal was about $20.The quality of food is good, and I think it’s worth it.
Overall Summary/Would I Come Back to the Majestic Diner (NJ)?
I liked the Majestic Diner and thought it was a good diner. They have a look of unique and upscale “diner: items that I would like to try.
