I've eaten here, @ The College Diner, before. It has always been good service & food @ a reasonable price. This time I met a friend for lunch .. & ate breakfast. A Veggie Omelette, grits and toast, all for a very affordable price. The food came out quickly but, unfortunately, the omelette was very salty. The cook overdid it... More

Great Food, Great Service. Great Selection. We just finished touring UNCW. The four of us all had different food choices on our minds. The College Diner did the trick. We each were able to choose a food/ethnicity we liked, and it as great, and also abundant. We were too full for desert, but they looked great!

Our freshman at UNC-W said we had to eat here. I was happy with it. Nice service and good corned beef hash, my favorite for a brunch outside of the house. I tried my son's pancake. very nice.

Wife and I eat here fairly frequently and 19 out of 20 times have great food. Usually have breakfast, but eat the menu specials enough to speak highly of them as well. Grilled pork chops my fave, whether as a meal with collards and the best fried okra in town, or with eggs and hash browns. All around good place... More

I confess I almost always end up ordering the same thing here, gyro on pita or on top of a Greek salad, and a cup of the Greek lemon chicken soup ( with a long name I never remember). I am never disappointed. On his visit, my husband had a Reuben sandwich, which was a nice size, moist, and tasty.... More

Went for breakfast and had corned beef hash. Sadly, the waiter made sure to tell me that it was made on-site - "not canned like at their other location". I've not had mexican corned beef hash until that day. Odd spices, covered in gelatinous cheddar cheese and with no meat in sight it was was certainly unique. The place is... More

We were on our way back at 9:00 pm to Surf City, which has nothing open to eat because everything closes so early and ALSO most of their restaurants think they can't cook eggs after 11:00 am. I don't understand why & they can't answer with a real reason, but not here, which is why they get FIVE STARS. Like... More

This place offers your typical diner food from burgers and hot dog to club sandwiches, meatloaf, soups, chili, salad and a bunch more of the comfort foods you would expect to find in a diner. The food is tasty and well presented. The staff is friendly and efficient. They even have wine and beer on the menu a real treat... More
