Lots of people enjoying lunch when I visited. I had one of my standard orders: corned beer Reuben, and no problems switching out the fires for a salad. Service was pretty quick for such a popular place, and the food good.

Pete and Fifi make everyone feel welcome; and their menu deviates from a typical diner with wonderful healthy specials, amazing salads, made-there desserts. Oh, and there's the typical diner food too.

The title says it all. Everyone loves the Park Wood Diner. Breakfast, lunch, or casual dinner. Great salads, omelettes, and everything else.

A bright, cheery diner with good food & coffee, comfortable seating and great service. Everything you want in a good, old fashioned (but not old) diner. They even have an outdoor porch during the warm weather.

This is a well-run diner and the folks who are here are genuinely nice people. It's comfortable, convenient and reasonably priced for a New Jersey diner. The food is consistent, and like most New Jersey diners, there's just an enormous amount of choices on the menu. I've come here for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and the occasional take out salad.

It gets busy but worth waiting if you want great homemade New Jersey diner food. Best Greek salad in the state. Had the grilled chicken wrap last time I was there. Perfect. Go....... It's a great local landmark.

The Park Wood is a terrific diner. No New Jersey town would be complete without a staple like this. Family friendly, family owned and operated the service is with a smile and the food is fresh and delicious. We have never had a bad meal here! Breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Park Wood has the greatest salads of any diner or restaurant I've been to - very imaginative and delicious. I love the Organic Salad that comes with grilled salmon and a wonderful lemon vinaigrette. Everyone will find something great here, from vegan to paleo to gluten-free and pescatarian.

I went here Sunday afternoon after church. We were welcome at the door by the owner and seated. It was a very warm day so everyone was sitting inside, they do have outside seating. There was 6 of us in our party and there were many large groups but we all sat very comfortably. Our waitress came over very quickly... More
