My family has had breakfast, lunch and dinner here numerous times. Everyone enjoyed the food and the selection of the menu. Bowmanstown Diner is an American Classic!

From farm fresh eggs and PA's own Scrapple to pies and real Pennsylvania dutch cooking, you can't go wrong here! Very genuine, amazing prices (I live in NJ, so everything seems cheaper when you're not in NJ)...service is great, food is really fresh and the place is clean! Don't miss stopping here on your way to Jim Thorpe, Allentown or... More

A good diner, oper 24 hr (except a few holidays). Very good food at a good price. Cash only, but they have a Mac machine. Can get busy, but it's worth the wait. Experienced staff, booths, tables or counter. Plenty of parking. Good for train spotters, right by Me tracks, and rt 248. We go here when ever we can.

This is the classic American diner everyone loves! With great parking for the trains that pass by ;-). Waitresses are always friendly and pleasant. Breakfast served until 2pm, open 24/7. What is there not to like. Fries with gravey is a signature. Great locally made desserts too. Breakfast is best! D

Love the dutch country food served at this old-fashioned diner. Chicken with waffles and fries with gravy are my favorites, but it's all good. A couple of things that bother me are that they only accept cash, but they do have an ATM on premises, and they will not seat you until your entire party is present. Take note.

I have never been disappointed in any meal at the Bowmanstown Diner. From a California burger to their delicious crab cakes you just can't beat the meals served. The prices at the Bowmanstown Diner are unbelievable! I suppose that's why the parking lot is always filled. You can't get a better meal for a great price.
