I adore local restaurants usually. In this, the order was taken-- meat loaf from their vintage group.., something I always enjoy. After a lengthy delay, I was served a large portion of mash , some not very good cole slaw and some thin slabs of very burned ground beef WHAT HAPPENED TO MEAT LOAF? I examined each and every piece... More

Came here for Breakfast with my friends who live in Clinton - this is your typical hometown cozy Diner in the center of town. The service was great as well as the coffee and my order "eggs over easy" were cooked perfectly. However the Bacon strips were "not" top quality meat - they were thin and fatty plus they tasted...

I frequent the Towne Restaurant regularly, 2-3 times per month, almost always for breakfast on weekends. It can get crowded, and then slow. But if it's not too crowded, they do a good job getting your food out and keeping your coffee topped up. The food is very good, an excellent Jersey diner really. I typically go for a dish... More

What a great spot for a great breakfast. Enjoyed a farmer's inlet and it was served with homefries that were perfect. Good coffee and nice staff.

Quaint diner in the center of downtown Clinton. Portions are fair and reasonably priced. For lunch, Had the gyro. Pita was fresh and soft. Meat was tender and juicy. Sweet potato fries were fresh and crispy. Chicken tenders are also a good option. Service was helpful and pleasant.

Went in for breakfast on a Sunday. Food was good with some different omelette choices. Only two comments. Need to learn how to serve warm toast and soft butter. Cold toast with hard bricks of butter don't work. Also, visit Riverside for coffee and bring it with you. You will be happy.

Recently on a Sunday afternoon my wife and I stopped by the Towne Restaurant around 2, apparently they close at 3. My wife ordered a Turkey Club and thought it tasted really good.

Perfect diner for Breakfast or Lunch (not opened for dinner). Fast, clean, friendly, nothing not to like here. Breakfast menu is varied and cooked perfectly every time. It is not too big of a place, so it is not overly loud and you get your food very quickly. Best of all, prices are very reasonable considering the area.
