I rely on diner's for a good solid, filling breakfast when I'm on the road and Longway's did not disappoint. Eggs, sausage, bacon, fries. All good. But there is more than just the good food. This place operates like a Swiss Watch. Make sure you...More

Great food, large portions, friendley people. What is not to like!!! Very helpful as well. I had left my jacket with my keys in the pocket. They were kind enough to ship them to me in Dayton, Ohio.

Haven't been here since the by-pass went in and we're relly glad we stopped back in. Food was great. Sitting at the counter is an experience watching the meals come together. Good service as well.

Went there for lunch and really enjoyed it. Chicken dinner and pumpkin pie, all the coffee you want - very good. Very nice waitress too. Obviously a place that has a lot of regulars, by which I mean customers as opposed to Ex-lax users 😊

Longway's Diner is like a truck stop in the best sense of the word; specials are cooked on site, service is fast and friendly, and the place is clean and comfortable. The soups taste like home-made and the "Carl's Burger" hamburger is huge, fresh, and...More

Very good food, friendly staff. Fast service. I'm not sure why they make you type 100 characters, 30 was more than enough.

We've been traveling through New England for the last week and, so far, this is the best breakfast we've had. There were 3 cooks working the grill ensuring our meal was delivered quickly. The eggs were perfectly cooked to order. I like my eggs with...More
