Stopped at this attractive diner near Allentown, PA mid-afternoon. Diner was busy but not crowded at this time of day. My wife and I were seated promptly. Surprisingly the dining room was not too hot or cold which is frequently the case. We ordered off the senior menu which was varied and a good value. The rest of menu is... More

We stopped in at the Trivet when visiting some friends who live in the area. There were lots of menu choices and it was possible to mix and match items to create whatever breakfast you wanted. Typical diner food and service. I would go back again if in the area.

The Trivet was one of the victors of the "Chrome Wars" that occurred a decade or two ago, when local diners seemed to be competing to see who could have the shiniest exterior. The Trivet gleams in the sun like King' Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem did 3,000 years ago. The interior is a bit more subdued, but it's clean and... More

When we drive into PA, we have found that the Trivet restaurant is a great stop on the way. Every time we are there the service is the best, the meals are always great, and the place is as clean as any restaurant we've ever been in. Never have we been disappointed. Today's visit was no surprise. Great burger, wonderful... More

This places runs hot and cold, and rarely hits a home run. My meal yesterday were barely passable crab cakes! The vegetable barley soup was iffy. The cole slaw and onion rings were good . Service is middlin'. Last resort

The food was good, portions were plenty but not excessively large. Waitress was busy but did a job. Prices were average for a diner. Plenty of choices on the menu. Very clean restrooms. We had a good experience.

We went there on a Saturday evening and wasn't to busy. We sat down for several minutes before our server came , I am pretty sure she was pretty new. We ordered and the food came within a reasonable time and was really good. Did not get drink refills, but overall it was good

Seems like everything we had was fried in the same grease. Overcooked and heavy. Deserts were LARGE and heavy also, not really that good. The service was just average. There are other diners around the area that are a lot better.

We've been to the Trivet 3 times now. EACH time we've gone, the hostess has been...let's just say...less than friendly. Today, EVERY single person we came in contact with; hostess, server and cashier seemed to REALLY not want to be there!!! Holy cow!! Pretty bad when your first impression is a NOT SO SMILEY hostess. Then your server seems like... More

Stopped here on our way out of town and discovered our new breakfast date favorite place. Clean, fast service, great food. Try the sweet potato pancakes. Totally unique. A pleasant surprise.
