I remember going out to Longway's as a kid... decent food, great prices, your typical diner. I went there recently and was a bit disappointed in their prices and the food was not as great as I remembered, but they did have great specials of the day that were a great value. Real close to 81, so it's definitely better than any fast food joints...

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

Just beginning a spring road trip in mid-March 2016, my wife and I stopped for lunch at a Northern NY tradition, the Longways Diner in Watertown NY. It was diners choice for immediate seating – we opted for a small booth. Our food orders consisted of toasted cheese (mild cheddar on white) and a patty melt (burger, provolone, grilled onions on seeded rye) plus an iced tea and coffee. Both - after a bit of a wait - with a big pile of fries, both meals, including the fries, were excellent, very tasty. Our meals were also extraordinary for their inexpensive bottom lines –sandwiches with beverages and a nice tip totaled well under $20. Longways Diner in Watertown NY is an entertaining place (sit where you can see the action behind the lunch counter) that serves great food for an old fashioned price.

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 as good as any burger you'll ever have.

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