Oatmeal lukewarm. Eggs over medium cooked hard. Taylor ham well done grill marks not hot or well done. Took off the oatmeal and the owner proceeded to argue with us about the rest of the meal. Not rushing back.

This diner is very nice, clean and you get plenty of food. The food I have had there is excellent. I mainly go for breakfast, and you leave full.

Jersey is known as the "Diner Capital of the World", and there are many good ones. The Rainbow Diner, on Rt 70 in Brick, is among the best. The food is fresh and plentiful. Most patrons wind up taking a portion home in a "doggy bag". Breakfast, lunch, dinner, are all well worth the visit. One word of warning, Sunday... More

We had a group of 13 go to the Rainbow diner after the movies the other night. We had a wide variety of food from Hamburgers to salad, club sandwiches and pancakes. Everyone raved about the food. The amazing thing is all of our orders came out at the same time and the orders were 100% correct. We were all... More

First impression was great, we had a very friendly server. The menu is huge and varied...our group ordered food from $10-$25. Everyone was very happy with their meals.The $25 salmon entree was dinner...and leftovers FOUR other times. The portions are tremendous, quality and value are rock solid. I'm not a big diner person, but I'd go back here anytime because... More

If you're looking for a good, big meal with a focus on comfort food, this is the place. There's no haute cuisine here, but who needs it? No one could ever walk away from the Rainbow with an empty stomach. It's simply an impossibility. Nor will they go unsatisfied. The food is well prepared.

First time at this diner. The corned beef sandwich was large, and very good. Service was very good, the waitress check on us a couple of times. If I am in the area, I would return.

It seems like a lot of diners are owned by Greeks. I love Greek food, and the Rainbow Diner delivered. The Spanakopita and Mousakka were both great specials, at a reasonable price. If you don't get the specials, some of the entrees can be pricey. The included soup and salad were average, nothing special.

This is a local favorite diner with super-late hours and a typical enormous diner menu. My young daughter happens to love it because it has a giant rainbow on its sign. We've had plenty of things off the menu and they are truly very good or very bad. Salads, fried chicken and kids meals are impressive. Do not order a... More
