The previsit buildup and hype was justified. The Brownstone Diner and Pancake restaurant is worth the calories! The pancakes are flat out the best, try the blueberry ones- or banana chocolate chip if you've already been to the gym in the morning. Family owned and operated business that cares about the customer and it's help. Supporting local businesses is also... More

Better than I expected! I was lucky enough to have this place nearly my apartment when on holiday and I can honestly say the food here was real American food. Never completed a full meal portions were massive! I would recommend the wraps, very tasty. Pancakes are seriously good? never mind a little tub of syrup like in the UK...... More

It was Easter Sunday and surprisingly there was nothing open anywhere in New Jersey City. Luckily for us we stumbled across Brownstone Diner in our neighbourhood. The setting is quite nice inside and we had a window table. The menu is extensive, and covers breakfast, lunch and dinner and everything in between. Nick our waiter was very welcoming and looked...

I've been to this place half a dozen times, every time I go I think it will be different and every time I come out having spent / wasting money on food that is either burnt or undercooked. The wait staff is also rude....i learnt my lesson, im never going there again.

Why would you waste your time going anywhere else? This is a real diner with spacious and comfortable seating, efficient and friendly waiters who will literally accommodate your every need, and stick to the ribs hearty platters of food served up hot and tasty. The pancakes, especially, are superlative. They are light, fluffy and so huge that, though you will... More

Food was good. Service was fast. I ate there twice. Waitress made a few mistakes, I ordered Hash Brown potatoes with my eggs, I received French Fries. Forgot my toast. I didn't make a fuss about. Maybe she was having a bad day. I would eat there again,but I prefer the Coachhouse in North Bergen.

I was there for Sunday brunch. The wait was only 15 minutes as the restaurant does a quick turnover. I had the coconut pancakes--absolutely delicious.

I wouldn't bother to write a negative review, but the "Certificate of Excellence" was so underserved, it called for a review. I went for a late brunch on Sunday, Apr 2, 2017. I recall having been to Brownstone Diner about 6 months ago but I didn't recall what I thought of the food - couldn't have been too bad. I... More
