Having been coming here for over 40+years and having seen some changes but not much; if it's not broken don't fix it and go where the locals go. The owners son is doing what his father did great service with great food! Best to stop in on a Sunday for brunch.

This place is just such a part of Clinton. I love a place where family happens. Dino and Chrissa are just such nice folks. Nick is a Clinton treasure. The staff is friendly. The food is great. I really do miss it when I travel for business.

I live near this joint and have been going there for a while. The Towne Restaurant is always packed when I get there, and the service is not that great. They have delicious home style food; however, it is can be greasy. Overall, if you are looking for a family friendly meal, the Town Restaurant is a good place to... More

After a lengthy delay, I was served a large portion of mash , some not very good cole slaw and some thin slabs of very burned ground beef WHAT HAPPENED TO MEAT LOAF? I examined each and every piece... More

Came here for Breakfast with my friends who live in Clinton - this is your typical hometown cozy Diner in the center of town. The service was great as well as the coffee and my order "eggs over easy" were cooked perfectly. However the Bacon strips were "not" top quality meat - they were thin and fatty plus they tasted...

I frequent the Towne Restaurant regularly, 2-3 times per month, almost always for breakfast on weekends. It can get crowded, and then slow. But if it's not too crowded, they do a good job getting your food out and keeping your coffee topped up. The food is very good, an excellent Jersey diner really. I typically go for a dish... More

What a great spot for a great breakfast. Enjoyed a farmer's inlet and it was served with homefries that were perfect. Good coffee and nice staff.

Quaint diner in the center of downtown Clinton. Portions are fair and reasonably priced. For lunch, Had the gyro. Pita was fresh and soft. Meat was tender and juicy. Sweet potato fries were fresh and crispy. Chicken tenders are also a good option. Service was helpful and pleasant.
