The Bethlehem Diner served us a two-star food but gave us four-star service. Like many diner divers, we ordered breakfast. My wife's waffle was a bit rubbery in texture. My omelet was overcooked. The home-fries were uninspired and under seasoned. The coffee was reasonably good, but the breakfast meats were lackluster. I'm not sure the Denny's wouldn't have been a... More

Nice find near our hotel. For a simple meal the gyro pita with cole slaw and fries was tasty goodness. For dessert, chocolate ice cream with whip cream and chocolate syrup. Mmm good. Left totally satisfied and ready to relax. Go, try it out.

My friend needed to go to CVS which was nearby. We decided to have dinner here. It was conveniently just off Airport Road right near Route US 22. The hostess greeted and seated us promptly in a very comfortable booth. Our beverage orders were taken as soon as we got settled. We found several tempting items on the extensive menu... More

The choice was between Denny's or the Bethlehem Diner in the same parking lot. The diner had more cars in the lot so that influenced our choice. Should have went to Denny's. We were seated immediately, service was very good. Didn't appreciate the Greek owners speaking Greek while in the middle of the dining room or at the register. Who... More

What more could you ask for from a diner? It's filled with locals and the elderly, only adding to it's charm. Located in the same parking lot as Denny's, this was clearly the right choice. The food came out lightning fast, was warm and scrumptious, all for a very reasonable price. One downside is that the coffee was "weak" for... More

Grumpy manager seated us in nice booth with view of the US22E on ramp. Waitress seemed a bit harried, but tried hard to be friendly. Coffee was weak, even for a classic diner. Hash was a bit soupy, salty and delicious. Poached eggs perfect. Potatoes nicely browned. Slightly soggy Wonderbread style rye toast with packets of jelly--were you expecting anything... More

Classic 24-hour diner with a menu like an encyclopedia and an incredible pastry case filled with homemade desserts. French toast is made with giant Texas toast and the eggs are super fresh. Waitresses are super sweet, attentive and efficient.

We stopped here on the recommendation of the hotel staff, so glad they did. The food was very good and the service by KP was exceptional. It was amazing just how fast the food was delivered to our table. KP was a joy to talk with.

Stopped by for lunch and found the place crowded. The menu was large and there were several specials listed on the board. I got a burger with well done fries and my daughter got a chicken wrap. The coffee was served in a small cup and refills were slow in coming. The burger was plain with tasteless cheddar cheese and... More
