We went here for a burger - typical diner fare. My wife had a patty melt and I had turkey burger. Both were excellent with a generous portion of hot french fries. The service was friendly and efficient. We got out of there for about $20. The booth across from us haha mountain of food served to them for dinner... More

This dineer has so many choices to pick from that you can go a whole week and longer and not eat the same thing. It also has specials that are out of this world.

My bad. I ordered the wrong dinner choice. Broiled salmon over a quinoa/kale salad mix was a smelly disappointment. Anyone knows that when the fish dish smells of fish, the fish has been around a while or not properly stored. The quinoa/kale mix was just ok. Could have benefited from some type of flavor kick. On the other hand my... More

I'm here on business. My supervisor and I forego the hotel breakfast and drive the 5 miles every morning to start the day here. I get the #2 with 2 extra eggs, bacon, English muffin, hash browns, cranberry juice and hot tea. They give me 6 slices of bacon....that's awesome. I really like this place.

The diner is clean and the staff is friendly, but the bathrooms are so tiny and need to be updated. The food is good for diner food. I've been to diners with better food and better selections, but it you're looking for a diner, this one is just average. Easy on and off Rt. 35.

The Blue Swan is consistently good, good food, good service, no matter what time of day! Try the Waffle Sundae, if you have a sweet tooth. Onion rings are excellent also!

We've eaten here a few times since moving to the Asbury Park area, and have never been disappointed. A great selection, as you'd imagine, with all kinds of omelets and classic breakfast choices. They're always happy to customize, the food comes quick and piping hot, and the servers are on the top of their game. Always very friendly and warm,... More

Been here several times, breakfast only. It's 15-20 miles from the house and there are a number of diners along the way, but we make the trip here specifically for breakfast, and especially for the pancakes. Like most diners, fast service, inexpensive and busy. All breakfast items I have tried have been good, but the pancakes and hash browns stand... More
