Classic American diner fare & ambiance. Service is friendly, prompt, no-nonsense. Their twist on the veggie burger, the "Jazz burger" is tasty, filling, and can take the place of any of the specialty burger combos. Great place for milkshakes--Nutella is one I wouldn't have expected,...More

Waited 15-20 minutes...no reservations...tight seating...regular dinner. Online MENU prices need to be UPDATED! We were 'not pleasantly surprised' by $7.99 to be $13.99 price. Whoa! We should have gotten a burger.

The Highland Park Diner is a favorite in this Rochester neighborhood, and has been popular for decades. Last week, I stopped in for a salad, which had strawberries and chicken, with healthy doses of red onion and other veggies in a Balsamic vinaigrette dressing. It...More
