We are diner lovers. We always search for diners in our travels. We stopped for a noon time breakfast on our way to North Conway. Well this was the absolute favorite of all our diners we have visited. Husband had the biscuits and gravy which he loved. I had the home made cinnamon bun. It was as big as a... More

The service was okay. The coffee was kinda weak and the omelet was a tad thin. Edible food but not diner we'll be heading back to. Appeared popular with the locals.

This is where Presidential candidates stump in Keene. Elected Presidents have eaten here. They talk to locals, with an elbows-on-the-countertops appeal. And that is Lindy's Diner. It looks like crap, but hey, you might run into someone semi-famous. The food, nothing to write home about. For all the hoopla about diner food, I've yet to find one that serves anything... More

Just got back from visiting Keene State College. We had many options to choose from for lunch but decided on Lindy's Diner as most diners are pretty good. Wrong choice. Started poorly when it took nearly 10 minutes to get 2 cups of coffee and 2 hot chocolates for the kids. Went really wrong when it took 20 plus minutes... More

Terrible service.... took forever to get our drinks and then our order. The food once given to us was cold and tasteless. We also found several hairs within our food. The diner was un clear that the diner was cash only and we were without cash...

My friend and I were visiting Keene for the first time, and this classic diner was calling our names. To my delight, when I looked at the beverage page, I found mocha java. Hot chocolate and coffee mixed together. Yum! I got the patty melt and he got eggs and hash. We were both very pleased. The diner's motto is... More

5 of us were wandering around Keene looking for somewhere to have lunch when we spotted Lindy's slightly off the Main Street. I think it's far to say back in the Motherland we don't have anything quite like This eating establishment, what a shame: enjoyed the whole experience of 'diner' eating: menu was extensive, food yummy, and the waitress once...

wanted a traditional, no frills breakfast and found it here. Eggs done as requested, and hash browns with onions hit the spot. The coffee in its solid mug was perfectly brewed and served hot by Lindy herself.

May have been better for breakfast food, but tried the clams strips on a busy Sunday afternoon and was disappointed.... Will give them a 2nd shot for breakfast sometime
