You can't have visited Oswego and not have heard of Wade's Diner. It is embedded in the city's history and it is a landmark. I had visited it twice before the old diner was destroyed in a fire but I must say that the new...More

In reading the LIGHTHOUSE TOUR review and going to Wade's, I must refute their findings. Wade's treats everyone with fast, courteous service! Food is consistently great and fairly priced. LIGHTHOUSE review should be NOT considered as a typical experience and as small as this town...More

Yes , the new wades is wheelchair accessible.
Hi Tom, We at Wade's Diner would like to thank you for taking the time out to write a review. It is always nice when a person has nice things to say about your place. As for the home fries- we do not add any salt to them at all. We try to use very little salt in our food. the same goes for the sausage. I add half of what is called for in the sausage mix. If the individual wants to add more salt then that is their choice. I have learned from going to other restaurants how much salt they add many times the food is to salty and there is no way of changing that. Again, thank you for the great review and hope to see you return. Tony Zappala Owner
