We eat hear or order for pickup almost on a weekly basis. Breakfast is served all day and is always perfectly prepared just as asked. You won't find a better breakfast anywhere! Burgers are some, if not the best, in the area. I still can't find one better. Portions are very good. You'll never feel unsatisfied. They have a great... More

This is a traditional American diner. You will find hamburgers, pancakes, and fine omelettes on their menu. We were there with a family of three and we all tried hamburgers. We were happy with the quality of the hamburgers. Unlike most diners, this one is designed carefully, which we really liked. There were framed posters of prime American artists over... More

Had pancakes with egg and bacon. Place was crowded around 10 am, but we were seated promptly. Parking is available. Oddly enough there is no view of the river. I prefer Malibu Diner in Hoboken but parking is more complicated there.

Great location and generally a traditional jersey dinner. Been to many, but this one unfortunately is not for me. Too many greater options nearby for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Suggest the old pancake house for breakfast.

If you check out any of my reviews you will notice that I am not easily impressed. To rate every category, "Excellent", for me, is unheard of. The River View Diner is a gem in every respect of the word. It's a gift to everyone who lives in or near North Bergen, NJ. I'm sure the River View Diner has... More

After driving from Eastern Long Island, through New York City, through the Lincoln Tunnel, I was tired and cold. Saw this diner and went in with my tired cold husband. We had the large bowl of lobster bisque. Cost $2.85 For dessert we had the biggest piece of baklava that I had ever been served. Both of us shared one... More
