We stopped in during a day of traveling around the Putney-Grafton-Chester-Townshend area. Our server was friendly and had a great smile. Service was attentive and the food was good. The restaurant was relatively busy, but we never felt rushed. Plus, I happened to mention that we were celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary that day and they gave us dessert on... More

While taking the scenic way home down RT.5 we were looking for a spot to stop for lunch , saw this little roadside diner and pulled over. It's not much to look at and could use better ventilation but the food was great and reasonably priced. When we found out they have real house roasted turkey(not deli meat) we had... More

The little diner has a cozy feel to it and overly friendly staff. It is a seat yourself place and when I pulled out my chair, my hand was greeted with remnants of something old and sticky. We ordered our lunch and as we wIted the entire restaurant became saturated with the odor of grease. The kitchen doors were open... More

We stopped by here on our way out of state. It doesn't look like much from the outside but inside you find a nice menu with reasonably priced food and a friendly staff. We've now visited twice. On the second visit there was only one server covering the entire floor herself but yet she remained pleasant and the food was... More

I had been given a gift certificate to the Putney Diner, a place I had never eaten. I had heard mixed reviews, so I was procrastinating on using the gift certificate. I walked in and was immediately greeted, told I could sit anywhere. I joined a friend already seated. One of the things I noticed immediately was how clean and... More

What a great diner! Good food with good specials. We like the eggs and the pancakes. Sit at the counterl, chat with the staff, and enjoy the local flavor.

Several of us enjoyed a hearty breakfast on a Sunday morning in October, prior to racing in a rowing regatta. Service was adequate, but we seemed to lose our server as we worked our way through breakfast and ultimately sought a bill. I'd recommend the diner, but don't be in a hurry!

We love to try local diners as we travel these United States and believe me, this is one of the best. We stopped here based on TA reviews & so glad we did. It does look awful on the outside but so cute and clean inside. We were greeted with a friendly smile and told to sit where we wished.... More

We wanted to try this 'diner' for a week. We finally found ourselves in Putney at 10:)) am and took the opportunity to give it a try. It looks like nothing from the outside. Actually it looks closed up, run down and abandoned. The inside is sparkling, charming and clean. A real local spot where the friends are many the... More

Been going here for years and some things after the new owners took over have improved. I think the last couple of times we went the service is better. There are less options on the menu then before which can be a good thing but I was sad to lose a lot of the veggie options that they had before... More
