This diner has new owners and it is wonderful. It has been fully redecorated. The food is great. Give it a try. Do not judge it by the former Pilgrim diner. Only the name is the same but everything else is different and so much better.

Visited for the first time in many years and was pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent and so was the breakfast. Spoke with the manager and was told they have new owners. Will definitely be back in rotation.

What a wonderful place to eat. The place is brand new and beautiful inside and out. The breakfast i got there was top notch. I highly recommend the tone and eggs with hashbrowns and the homemade corned beef hash. The servers and upfront staff are friendly and super helpful. In an area with a wide selection of eateries this diner shines bright. I’m very happy I found this awesome restaurant.

I absolutely love the Pilgrim Diner! I eat there about twice a week! Their matzoh ball soup and pea soup are out of this world! Same goes for their cheesesteak sandwiches and the turkey clubs! Everyone is so nice as well!

Diners are a toss of the coin, this was a heads up! Had the Reuben, the pastrami was SO GOOD! If I’m back in the neighborhood I would try the corn beef next time. The pasta salad on the side was fresh and with a hint of dill.

I order from here every Friday and I’ve never been disappointed. I’ve also dined in. Lately I’ve been getting the Greek sampler , the spanakopita is amazing and my 16 month loves it too. I also quite enjoy their Reuben style sandwiches (hot mess etc). They have it all though ! Definitely recommend.

We enjoy going to this diner, the food and service are really good. The music can sometimes be loud, but they will adjust it, and I can talk to my family without having to yell. The prices have gone up, but they have everywhere.

Best diner ever! Great owners. Outstanding service. Food was perfect. Cheese omelette was the best. Had choice of toast, pancake or French toast. French toast was also perfect with a touch of cinnamon. Coffee excellent. Home fries were offered with or without onions and peppers. With peppers was delicious. Which is was closer to me.

The food was good. I had the spanakopita.
I like the pilgrim paintings and pilgrim theme. It’s a nice original idea. Most diners do not have a theme.
