So great to get some reasonably priced amazing tasting food whilst on our honeymoon. Our waitress was an absolute doll and enjoyed laughing at our SUNOCO FROM HELL STORY --- the pie was amazeballs as well ... I could live at this place.

Not much to say. Food was ok. Wait staff mediocre. If I was close, I would probably eat there again. Seems like a place the locals frequent.

Diner food...we have all had diner food at one time or another. It isn't good, it isn't bad; well there is an exception, the Redwood Diner. From the warm welcome by the hostess to the waitress's "What can I get you?", you know that this is a town favorite. After looking at the rather extensive menu, my wife and I... More

The Redwood Diner is good for a reasonable inexpensive meal. It can be a bit chaotic at times but for the price I guess one cannot complain.

Good food. Good service. GREAT desserts. This is a busy place. Truckers and locals crowd the tables. Worth a stop.

We were driving to Colgate & accidentally got off 90 and came across this diner. It felt like we were at the 1950s diner. The waitress was very nice & efficient. We loved our food. Service was quick & friendly . I felt better tipping the waitress in person since that is what I saw some of the other patrons... More

I have been going to the Capitol District Renaissance Festival for three years and have eaten at this diner in the past. My husband and I think the food is average but it is very close to the hotel we stay at so we go for the convenience. I ordered the mac and cheese and it came with soup and... More
