Wades is an Oswego icon. It's a lot of fun to sit at the front counter and watch the cooks work. The waitress that comes to your booth memorizes your order. We can come back in a month and she remembers who ordered what last...More

Good, solid American breakfast! That's their specialty - only breakfast hours. That's how they make their money.

Wades has been here a very long time & is a favorite of locals. The breakfast is decent, but coffee not drinkable.

Yes , the new wades is wheelchair accessible.
Hi Tom, We at Wade's Diner would like to thank you for taking the time out to write a review. It is always nice when a person has nice things to say about your place. As for the home fries- we do not add any salt to them at all. We try to use very little salt in our food. the same goes for the sausage. I add half of what is called for in the sausage mix. If the individual wants to add more salt then that is their choice. I have learned from going to other restaurants how much salt they add many times the food is to salty and there is no way of changing that. Again, thank you for the great review and hope to see you return. Tony Zappala Owner
