It has now become a tradition to stop here for a late breakfast on our way home from Atlantic City. We've only had breakfast here but I'm sure their other foods would be Justin st as great. Their waffles are the lightest I've ever had and the food comes just as requested all the time. They make their own baked... More

Very quick service on a busy Sunday. I had the Grand Slam with French Toast, 2 eggs and breakfast sausage. My son had the children's menu Shrimp and fries. My breakfast was just what I expected and very good. The coffee was just OK. My son's breaded shrimp covered half the plate. He took the extra home. The service was... More

Day two at Phoenix Diner. Day one was prompted by 3,000-4,000 teenagers here for a DECA Conference business competitions. Yesterday's French toast, eggs & scrapple were very good. Today's AC Wrap was delicious, substantial, & served with home fries. At $9.95, it was so much better than a small bagel egg sandwich at Harrah's Deli for $8. The service at... More

I made the mistake of ordering the stuffed cabbage. It was the worst stuffed cabbage I have ever tasted, the sauce was a mushroom base and never before did I have it with mushrooms anywhere. The sauce was thick as glue horrible tasting and COLD !!!!!!!

Ate here twice during a weekend stay in the area. Had a wrap one day, which was fantastic. Had an omelet the next day, which was also very good. Only complaint was onions in the home fries. Next time I know to ask for them without. Pastries made on the premises looked delicious and were huge. Everything was reasonably priced.... More

If you are staying in AC and tired of paying top dollars for regular food, visit this diner. We have stopped there quite a few times. The prices are reasonable, the service is great and so if the food. It's worth the short drive out the White Horse Pike.

I am not a breakfast person, so a diner is a good choice for the other people in your party who want breakfast. I also love Greek food, so this place was a great choice with it's huge menu. The Greek Omelette was tasty, but the beef & lamb gyro, accompanied with a greek salad, were really great. Portions were... More
