Coming back home from Maine. Rain pouring down for the past three hours and we were stressed. I had a turkey wrap that was excellent but the cole slaw was tasteless. Husband had a turkey burger and fries. The good news was that the rain stopped. and we had a safe drive back home

Passed by this place many times and finally got a chance to stop in. Menu has plenty of daily specials for under twenty dollars. The specials include soup or salad, entree, and dessert (cheesecake is extra). I started with a delicious lobster bisque then on to crab cakes (three not two) with baked potato and green beans, then blueberry pie... More

We wanted to eat in a NJ diner while we were in New Jersey and Brookside did not disappoint. We tried the Friday night specials which was very reasonable. We both started w/ a soup, he tried the lobster bisque and I had the matzo ball soup. His bisque was very pink but he said it was tasty and my... More

Brookside is a great diner. Eat there on a regular basis. We're not adventurous with our menu selections; we stick to classic diner foods. However the menu is vast for those who want to try lots of different things. Manager John and staff are very good.

Typical diner food. However what makes this place stand out is the service. The waitress was very nice and helped make suggestions for our little one. I felt like we were in someone's home. We love diner food and this one stood the test of time.

Breakfast was needed, and my grumpy group was extra grumpy because I made them take extra time to visit this spot. But we were very satisfied by our visit. The menu had something called Taylor Ham. I had not heard of it before, but learned that this is a New Jersey specialty. Who knew that NJ had its own regional... More
