We went to the Agawam Diner for the classic diner meal, chicken pot pie and meatloaf, which were delivered. The mashed potatoes, resembling those of my youth, and the "well cooked" green beans speak to an audience that appreciates things "as they remember them". It is certainly not progressive, but it should not be, it is a place that holds... More

Took a weekend drive to Ipswich and decided to have breakfast at the Agawam dinner. Eggs over easy with hash was delectable. Coffee was much better than expected for e diner. Service at the counter was great. It's a small space and a line quickly formed after we were seated, but quick service means quick turnover. Definitely has a local... More

This place is delicious! Everything on the menu is homemade and so good. Their turkey club is a real show stopper, and their french fries are beyond fantastic. The place itself is really small, which makes the atmosphere so welcoming and charming. The prices can't be beat, and the wait staff is extremely nice. Whether you want to go for... More

We ordered sandwiches and breakfast items and all were made to perfection. Deserts were also a hit. We were packed like sardines but that did not detract from the diner experience.... More

I used to come here often when I lived in Newburyport and the food was consistently good. The service was great and the customers were friendly at the counter. There was a beautiful waitress that had the most amazing blue eyes. That was 25 years ago. I moved away from the area and stopped going. Today I was in the... More
