Modern Diner Reviews

Add your review for Modern Diner.

  • ChefMozThe Modern Diner is most faithful to its genre, set in a 1941 Sterling Streamliner and having the honors of being one of the first diners placed on the National Register of Historic places. Aside from a dining room extension constructed in the back, the Modern Diner is anything but modern from its truly authentic cramped and authentic stainless steel look to the "What do you want honey?" style service. Boarded up upon hitting hard times in Pawtucket in the 1980s, the Modern Diner was moved, restored and brought back to life in another area of the city, where crowds can be found any time of the day. Great fries, omelettes, French toast with custard sauce, lobster Benedict (replacing bacon with lobster), fresh fruit, tuna melts and burgers fulfill the most finicky diner patron at this fun, old-school diner in an old city full of personality and personalities.

  • ChefMozAs a fan of Diner's, I consider the Modern Diner the finest I've eaten in. I lived in Jersey for 15 years and sought out different diners as often as weekly. The Modern Diner, per my grandson, is Awesome.
