I went for a quick and easy Sunday lunch, but ended up getting more than I expected. First, the place has ample parking, and then it's rather nice inside -- a step up from my usual places that I enjoy, but still casual and inviting. My food was great -- Moussaka with Greek salad, which was tasty and quite a... More

Service was extremely slow and somewhat disorganized. I asked for a side salad and got a very large one. Omelet was OK. If you get something from the lunch menu, the only dessert choices are jello or pudding. Chocolate pudding wasn't so great.

We were there to move our daughter in - stopped for breakfast. Very busy, a little chaotic, but HUGE PORTIONS & Quick service. We've eaten there for lunch too- again, big portions & good food!

I LOVE diner food! Diners provide the most options and some of the best local eats in any given town. This diner however, misses the mark FAR OFF as far as good eats. Food was bland and flavorless which could be remedied with a little salt and pepper BUT hair in the food...UNACCEPTABLE! Once we noticed the hair, we told... More

Mark Twain has been renovated and the decor is nice. Menu is your typical diner selection. Good place for a quick bite.

The ubiquitous NJ diner can be underrated and under appreciated, as just a place for an average meal quickly for a reasonable price. We have dined at this one several times and think they well exceed the average expectation. Mark Twain Diner does not disappoint.

Prices are very reasonable and service is OK to Good. Food is average at best. Try the Sunrise Diner in Roselle Park instead (only 10 minutes from the Mark Twain).
