We stopped here on the way to Belleayre for breakfast, the food was amazing. The Interstate 77 Revisited Skillet was soooooo good. Staff was friendly and it was nice and comfortable inside. Definitely recommend!

This spot always pleases. Popular for a reason. Friendly staff, with a talented owner that brought new life to this classic dinner. Must visit, you will enjoy it.

Very crowded and noisy, but the food is good. Trout and meatloaf were very good. Chicken nuggets were a little burnt and spicy. Good place to visit when in the area. Nothing better around.

A no-nonsense foodie recently told me I had to give the Phoenicia Diner another chance, (under its new ownership). Fair enough. The last time I'd visited (at least a decade ago) the wife and I left without eating. The first thing I noticed was the friendly staff – which seated me even though my breakfast companion had not yet arrived.... More

Great food, beautifully restored 60s diner, very hipster crowd with occasional locals. This is a greet-and-seat place, often very crowded. Excellent management. Nouveau-diner menu. Alas, it is not an old undiscovered diner where you can get a slab of cherry pie and coffee for a few dollars, sit wherever you want, and look out the window for hours, but it... More

Every time we eat here the food is delicious. It is all locally sourced and so fresh. I love the old school diner decor and it is definitely a highlight of any Catskill trip.

Going to keep this one short and sweet. Was here in April of 2016, had the best biscuits and gravy I have ever had. Biscuits were fluffy, thick, and perfect. Sausage Gravy, well, if I could fill a bath tub with it and bathe in it, I would. Sausage was spicy but not too, just enough of a kick with... More

A local favorite, amazing menu with a gamut of possibilities from plain eggs and meat to duck legs and grits to pan fried trout. Full bar to boot. Great place for a small bite or a large meal.

We have planned our stop here 100 miles north from New York City on our trip to Woodstock. This diner is a jewel of the restaurants. Breakfast served all day. Vegetarian alternatives. Delicious food, a real american atmosphere and a friendly service. Come for the mountains, stay for the food.

We stop at the Phoenicia Diner every time we drive past it, and often will change the route to our Catskill home just so we will drive past it. My family is totally addicted to various items, but my favorite is the duck confit with grits! UNBELIEVABLE!!! We live in Minnesota but have a home in the Catskills too and... More
