My family and I stopped visiting small NJ diners a few years ago because the food as a whole tanked. Frozen/canned vegetables, reheated and or burned food, some "film" on all of the food that was disgusting. We tried this place recently on advice from a friend and were pleasantly surprised. Though it's not "top shelf", it's still great for... More

I agree with early reviews that there some problems when they first opened, but they've got down now. The food is good typical diner fare. Service is always quick and friendly. They have new $2.99 breakfast specials including coffee.

This place reopened after renovation and has been under the new management for past year or two. This was my first visit in the "new" Brooklawn Diner and I was quite satisfied. The menu is extensive and includes the usual and expected diner fare. There are daily specials and mini meals offered. They make some of their salad dressings without... More

My wife had Eggs Benedict and was pleased. Very fresh and served hot with well cooked hash brown potatoes. I had chicken croquettes and found them very good. Vegetables were well prepared and not over cooked. Very good Minestrone soup.

Tried it again. I had roasted 1/2 chicken over stuffing, mashed potatoes and fried eggplant. The chicken was so greasy I couldn't eat it. The stuffing was burnt on one side and mushy on the other. The fried eggplant was not bad. My husband had 'cheese ravioli and meatball parm' which was cheese ravioli with a meatball on top with... More

This diner has been around for a long time but closed several years ago for renovation and just recently reopened. I assume there were a couple of changes of ownership during that time. Anyway, my husband and I stopped in one night for a quick meal and we were literally the only customers the entire time we were there. It's... More

I am from out of town, and it seems the locals are really hard on this place for some reason. I loved the food, the atmosphere, and the waitresses. I ate here a few times a week while at CDL school in Philly (I was staying down the road at a hotel for four weeks). I even took my GF's... More

I reviewed this business to be so poor a few months ago. My husband convinced me to eat here last night . I have to say they are so much improved! My meal was amazing ! The staff was so professional and the hostess was super friendly! Great job with the improvements! I'll be visiting again !
