We are diner people. We'll try any diner. We tried the Livingston Diner years ago and thought it was horrible. How can you screw up bacon & eggs? Well, they did. We tried the pancakes. Not good either. Then, this past January, we decided to give it a second shot. Nope. The pancakes were still bad and the bacon &... More

My co-worker and I stopped in for breakfast on a rainy weekday morning. I ordered the blueberry pancakes, a side of turkey sausage, and coffee. The pancakes consisted of 3 large pancakes stuffed with mini blueberries. If you know about cooking, the mini blueberries are the ones you cook with so I was impressed to see they got it right....

Just got into town on a business trip and decided to give it a try. Very friendly staff and the food was great. The prices are outstanding. I had the linguini with meatballs. Had soup and salad. Great meal at a great price. Can't wait to go back.

Today my Dad and I were looking for a place for lunch before and appointment and found the Livingston Diner just across the street from our Doctor. It was lunch hour and the parking lot was full and I thought we might have trouble getting a table. Luckily, we were quickly shown to a table. The restaurant was busy and... More

The best thing about this place is its close proximity to the Turtle Back Zoo; she the kids get hungry, you don't have to buy the fast food at the zoo. Our food took a very long time, however, and the check took even longer. Food was just mediocre; nothing bad, nothing special. They got my sister-in-law's order wrong 2... More

It's the only diner in the area close to St. Barnabas Medical Center. Ok good, typical diner but pricey because of the area It's in.

Have eaten here many times. The food is good and is priced reasonably. I've had breakfast here. Eggs, hash, french toast. pancakes etc. All were done properly and the portions were generous. I had sandwiches and soups for lunch and again all were good. For dinner I've had fish, roast beef, salads etc. I've never had a bad meal here.... More

Went for early dinner on Saturday night. Everything was very good except lamb chops. While they were tasty, they were tough and somewhat fatty. Everyone else's meal was very good along with extensive sides.
