I keep trying to give the place a chance, but the last few times we have stopped there (as it's convenient location), it was mediocre at best. Nothing special at all. The food was edible, but really had no reason to say we needed to...come back. You are almostt better with a McDonald's breakfast, and that's sad for a diner. They don't even cook their own home fries potatoes with vreakfast, they are frozen cubed tasteless potatoes from a frozen bag. It seems to be getting worse instead of better. A shame, management needs to wake up that they can't go on the mastalgia of the "World Famous Roscoe Diner" alone.More

Been coming here for years. The staff always make you feel at home. Lately the quality from the kitchen has been slipping. Had breakfast today with a party of 5. 4 of the 5 were disappointed. And breakfast shouldn’t be difficult for a diner kitchen....Not ready to give up on them yet but improvements are necessary in our opinion. Give it a chance and see what you think.More

We had breakfast several days in a row at the Roscoe Diner before fishing (they open at 6AM) and always had great food and service. The Greek omelette is excellent, as are the home fries and the servers readily refilled our coffee cups and could...not have been more helpful and friendly. Lots of regulars and an extensive menu to choose from for breakfast, lunch or dinner.More

I have fond memories of this place from grad school days, so when I came back to NY I was eager to go back. This is my 4th try, and it isn’t getting better. The staff are disengaged and seem to know they got you...(because not much else between Binghamton and Monticello). Food is mediocre for a diner and the service is less than mediocre. This will be the last try, I will be packing a sandwich from now on.More

Been stopping at the Roscoe Diner for decades and always looked forward to it. Had our first post - Covid road trip and stopped in tonight on the way home. The food was over cooked and dry - worst burger we’ve maybe ever seen and...not served as requested. The restrooms were hot, smelly and filthy. The staff seemed stretched thin. We were more than disappointed and will be stopping somewhere else next time. I do want to give a shout out to our server, a young and polite gentlemen who checked on us several times. Otherwise, I don’t know what has happened but the quality of the Roscoe Diner has gone south.More

Three stars is a gift because in the past we've had good meals here. Calamari app was WAY overcooked and tasteless. (Amazing considering it was 5 PM and only one other table in the place was occupied). Pork chop was tough. Vegetables were overcooked and...mushy. Manhattan clam chowder was creamy and contained potato chunks but virtually no clam pieces or clam taste. If this is how the food is when they're not busy during a pandemic I shudder to think what it will be like if they ever get busy again!! In fairness, the server did a good job.More

Despite primarily live in NYC, we tend to dine out at restaurants outside of the city. My most recent experience was one of the worst ones at a diner called Roscoe Diner. In particular, our waitress named Donna gave us a nasty attitude the moment...we stepped into the diner. In addition to her attitude, the diner was also in bad condition and in need of a renovation. On the bright side, the food did taste alright. A friend recommended this diner, but I guess they didn't have Donna as a waitress.More

This historic diner did not live up to its past glory for a Sunday AM breakfast. The coffee was better than average for a diner, but the rest of the food (pancakes, bacon, and an egg sandwich) were just average, nothing special, and nothing worth...a special trip. Service was good, but not great. Overall an average experience with higher prices than expected for this small town.More

Excellent food and service! Enjoyed a delicious breakfast on our stay in Roscoe. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. Recommend stopping here.

Great place to grab a bite. Breakfast all day, delicious sandwiches & desserts.I could definitely do without the nasty political stickers at the cash register. That alone would deter me from coming back.
