Country Club Diner

I went there on Sunday night. Harldy any customers, but the young waitress disappeared. Ordered french onion soup and a "california burger". The soup itself was very greasy and tasted as if the base was chicken broth, and a bouillon at that. The burger platter was served on an undersize plate so that you had no room to sort out the food. The burger had half jar of roasted red peppers under the bun with lettuce and onions and a slathering of avocado mash on the bottom. The bun could not hold all the moisture in and became a soggy mess. Burger was more toppings then meat. I spoke to the manager and showed him the food. He apologized and was very nice. He took the food off the bill. Maybe it was any number of circumstances, but the food quality and presentation needs to be improved.

This Diner has the best Carrot Cake in the area. I have tried many and NONE measure up to the flavor and consistency of the Carrot Cake sold by the Country Club Diner. Definitely 5 star. Worth the travel!

I really like the Country Club now that it has new owners. They really fixed it up nicely and the prices are more reasonable. It has a very nice atmosphere and the staff are friendly. We go there often. And yes I do have to agree their chessecake is very good, however, I wouldn't recommend the lemon marrague pie.

Service went down since the old man died. It is part of a chain in a declining part of a declining region, and the service reflects it. One old bat said leaned over my wife and reached across the table to fetch her tip saying, "gimme my money" and she had a scowl the whole time she waited on us. And we waited. Left her two ones. Shouldn't have left her anything. She seemed angry that the fellow working as maitre de even brought us to her table on her station. Pastry and cheesecake might be good, but we left after our main entrees and din't want dessert. Having her serve it would have been no dessert at all.

At 12:00 am a toasted bagel with lox, cream cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and onion, delicious. They've added capers in the 10 years I've been gone, wow. A Northeast institution. Long live the Country Club! Where else you gonna go?
