Good food that goes way beyond typical diner fare, great specials, huge portions, friendly service, reasonable prices. Two entrees (came with small salads), a beer and a wine, and a shared dessert: $36. Monticello is a dilapidated and impoverished ghost town with few places to eat. This is by far the best and safest choice. Our only criticism: The diner... More

The food is very good here. I love the burgers and their matzah ball soup. I would give it a five star rating if the service was better and if it was larger. I feel like there is not much room for the traffic they get, especially on the weekends.

Located in a small town, where the servers know most patrons and treat those they don't know as if they are regulars. Our server the first night was fabulous, she anticipated our every need. The vegetable omelette, turkey club and reuben panini were all fresh and delicious! Prices are reasonable and the specials were classic diner fare.

Had breakfast, the eggs were good and everything was well cooked. Service was quick and place was clean. I will stop back again. The place was full and I was worried about a wait, but they have a back room and we were seated right away.

The food, the people are beyond wonderful. It is like having a wonderful dinner with family! Out of the 4 days spent in Monticello, we ate 2 of them here! I wish it were closer to South Florida!!!

Surprised with Greek food on menu at unpretentious diner...but great food! Lunch specials include soup and dessert at reasonable prices. Server very nice and attentive. Great find in cute little town.

Monticello is not the bustling town it used to be. The Miss Monticello Diner is the same. Big portions of well prepared food at reasonable prices.

Although the hostess(owner?) was crabby about our request for a booth by a window, everything else about our visit was very good.The hot open turkey was chock full of real sliced turkey and delicious mashed potatoes (ask for the bread to be toasted or for something other than white sandwich bread). The meatloaf was not a traditional flavor but was... More

As we were being seated by the host, an older woman, I wiped the table and seat that had food on it with the napkin that was on the table. I gave it to the host when done. She snatched the napkin and rolled her eyes at me. Not sure what that was about. As I sat down I got... More

This is a nice little diner in the heart of Monticello, old fashioned no frills, food was decent, staff was friendly, prices were very good. I would definitely stop in here again.
