I often went there for breakfast. The food and the staff were great. Before Christmas the owners retired and sold to new people. They changed the name to "Dinertime Diner" (wth??) they changed products, vendors & recipes. They changed the atmosphere. No longer the 50's music, now it's contemporary. The food? I ordered overeasy eggs, homefries, bacon (crispy) and toast.... More

The food was good when my husband and I went, service was Ok. The prices seemed a little high for a salad and sandwich.

We have been to this diner a few times and it was always ok, just ok, nothing to write home about. But this time, I fear we made a mistake in going there for breakfast: I ordered a cheddar omelet, wheat toast and home fries. So out comes the omelet...overcooked, flat , hard and the cheese had congealed already! Cold... More

Visiting Albany, we'd heard that the Circle Diner is now the Diner Talk Restaurant, so we decided to give it a try. I know that it takes a while for new management to get their systems in place, but we wanted to see where they stood. This was a great meal. The service was really good. Every person in the... More

I like the fact that they still having homely diners in business. It reminds me of when I was a kid. Their gravy and biscuits were superb.

Had to go around the rotary twice but what a great find. Any time I can get my favorite patty melt made with buffalo, it's a great day. My husband's Reuben was one of the leanest we've seen. Awesome lunch and will figure out how to get back here.

When you walked in you also walked back in time but in a good way. breakfast was great diner food, we had omelets and French toast..great breakfast potatoes too. Many business people doing breakfast meetings so locals must like it too. PS what a treat for your eyes ..all the dark wood and shiny stainless steel.

Having been raised in dowwnstate diners, I am amazed when a diner is not open in the evenings and has no lox on it's menu. But, the omelettes are fine and the coffee is good. Service is excellent and there is ample parking but alas there is no lox.

Stopped in for lunch on a road trip in the area. Service was great! Menu is huge. Husband had the Pilgrim sandwich -- turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce -- which he said was great. I had greek salad wrap which was just ok. The french fries are excellent! Place was clean. Would recommend.

We have visited this diner each year for the last five we have had our annual "college friends" reunion at the horse races. The food is always good. The specials a nice variety. Breakfast is served all day so if your not feeling like lunch or dinner go for breakfast. My friends had the bow tie goulash, tuna salad wrap,... More
