I have passed this diner for the last 6 years on my way to and from work. I packed my son up from College and we stopped in for a late lunch. It was outrageously good!. If you are in the mood for excellent food, great service and a quick on/off Interstate 78 then this diner is the ticket.

This is the place you end up at when the DD drives you to satisfy dunk munchies with chicken fingers at 3AM. They burn those. This is the place that can ruin any omelette. This is the place that advertises a salad bar and closes it in front of you. This is the place where you forgot it was bad... More

We stopped for a late lunch on the way home from NYC. Very convenient access with ample handicap parking. Large menu offering breakfast to lunch to dinner items. The two Greek dishes my wife and I had were quite disappointing especially for a NJ Diner. The waiter insisted everything was homemade but that clearly does not mean cooked from scratch.... More

The Clinton Station Diner is a favorite. Not only do they offer good food and service, but they are easily accessible off of Rt78 and open 24 hours. Yes, not every visit has been perfect. I attribute that to new cooks, etc. the waitstaff is ALWAYS excellent. The mixups are generally in the kitchen, which just wasn't "caught" by the... More

After a red eye from San Francisco to Boston and a long day driving my wife and I needed a hassle-free rest and some good food. This place fit the bill! The restaurant's access from I-78, friendly staff, a huge menu and well prepared food were exactly what we needed.

Stopped on way home from airport. Easy on and off of 78 West. Great variety on the menu. Friendly staff and clean environment. Large dessert selection, made on premises. Best of all open 24-7!

In town to see family and enjoy their company, I came here on the recommendation of a family Member, I wasn't really happy with anything on the menu so I decided to go for he Cuban Panini, something fairly simple, well, if the meat on the sandwich was a palatable, Flavorful Pork, I would have eaten it, however it tasted...

I met up with a friend who lives in PA as this was a good 1/2 way spot from my NJ location and it was suggested by another friend who lives in the area. Location was good as it was easy on/off 78 from both directions. The restaurant and the food, though, were very disappointing. First, upon entering, the set... More

Worst meal we ever had tonight at Clinton Station Diner. We’ve been going to the CSD since it opened, and tonight is the end of an era for us. We will never return. The short ribs were more fat and bone than meat, the chicken pot pie had a few shreds of chicken meat, loads of potatoes, carrots and zucchini,... More
