Pleasant atmosphere and food tasted ok. But I ordered a Gyro, which should be on pita bread and was served a gyro on a white tortilla wrap. Disliked that jukeboxes were for display only.

This is always our half-way stop on our way to Wildwood. Never disappointed, the food is always good and lots of it. I usually get an omelette and the home fries are perfect. Staff is always friendly. Love the classic diner atmosphere, too.

We followed the new owners up the street from the old Quinton Diner when they moved in November 2013, so we've been their customers since 2010. Food has always been anywhere from good to excellent! Their homemade soups alone make it worth the trip! Portions...More

I had an evening meeting in Salem, New Jersey, and a colleague recommended this little diner for dinner. It was a blast from the past. The service was ok; this is a classic lunch counter diner place and I wasn't exactly expecting top notch service....More
