You start here by being handed a very good menu that feels like a textbook, offering many choices and some very good prices. Watch for the chef specials, which feature an entrée, a potato and vegetable, a cup of soup and a nice salad. I...More

Have been to State Line many times and consistently get good food and service. I particularly enjoy the broiled seafood and all their home made desserts. Easy access from NJ17 North and ample parking.

This is a great diner, the food is quick and delicious and the wait staff are airways courteous. Convenient location between NY's I87 and the Garden State Parkway. Great little stop when you're on your way to or from the city.

Thanks for taking the time for pointing out where we can do better. I'm not sure when you last checked our online menu available at statelinediner.com but it always matches our current menu on premises. As for the sour cream, I can see that it...More

We got into NJ late diners are always open so we went here. Our server was talking to other servers a lot. So she wasn't able to bring food out when it was ready or fill drinks regularly. But food was good. I love diners...More
