Although the food selection was delicious, it was rather expensive and we waited a bit for our meal.
They are still overwhelmed service wise and are still not open for dinner because of difficulty finding staff.
Stopped here for lunch on Sunday. Burgers and turkey club were fantastic as were the milkshakes. Avocado toast just meh. Loved the soda water with Hudson Shrubs. Corner booth uncomfortable for the person in the curve especially at midday with sun — the only window without blinds. The place looks fabulous and staff all friendly and accommodating, though a bit slow at times(with water and check). No worries— we still enjoyed our lunch immensely and will be back many times.
What a nice stop off on our route--a delicious brunch and scrumptious coffee cake. Glad this has been revitalized. And the iconic sign retained.
Love the redone diner, love that they kept the ambiance and all the retro parts possible.
Also love that they redid the sign, hope they don't get rid of it. It does not seem offensive at all to me.
It's different. Most diners, you get pretty much the same things, especially at breakfast. This place has the regulars but everything is just a little quirky- locally sourced and very good ingredients. Flowers on the table were basically stuff you can pick on your own, but really nice.
I had pastrami hash and I had to do a takeout container because I was stuffed.
My wire had a cornmeal pancake with smoky tasting tree juice.! Really good, but as I say... different
Food terrific. They got a smoker and know how to use it.
Staff mostly good and in spite of occasional purple hair does not veer into attitude land, thank god, which is the danger given the all the hype.
It’s taking a while for some food to come out. Not surprising, since they have been hammered since day one.
Waiting for them to add dinner. Fingers crossed.
It was good that we made reservations for 4 since it was Fathers Day, and were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time. Took 15 minutes to get our order taken - 20 more minutes to get coffee, only after we had to ask for it (small cups and $1 for refills). After another 45 minutes our waiter (who had other wise ignored us all of this time) BROUGHT US OUR CHECK for $78.00 BUT HE HADN'T EVEN DELIVERED OUR FOOD!! - saying "Oh, you didn't get your food?" (DUH - you're our waiter, right?) He then went to the kitchen and eventually brought 3 of our 4 meals. After another 15 minutes I asked the hostess who was seating customers to please check on the missing meal which she tracked down and brought. This was NOT a good experience and there was NO apology from anyone for the late meals and incompetent waiter. "Oh - the waiter is new" is not an excuse for this series of events - especially giving us the bill before we got our food!!! Our plan for a nice Fathers Day brunch was ruined and left us all stressed and bewildered at the whole series of events. (Note: I'd like to be able to say that the food was worth the wait, but it was not. The pastrami on the Ruben was the fattiest I've ever had, and all the meals were overly greasy. Never again.)
Good food, good drink, good people, good times. Can't wait to go back.
Simply quality food prepared extremely well
Do not miss the salted chocolate chip cookies
Cannot wait for a dinner option
Terrific food in an epic diner. Magic.
Good food. Inventive menu
A real find and so convenient off the Taconic Parkway. Not your grandfather's local diner and that's a plus!
From the first bite of my seemingly simple dish- fried eggs smoked chick peas tossed greens crumbled grains and Nordic rye toast I realized that there someone in the kitchen who not only knew food and how to execute ingredients. But also deeply cared about what was on the plate. Delicious cake too
Loved the diner atmosphere. Complaint. Music way too loud for lunchtime conversation
I’ve been eating at the WTD my whole life and seen it change hands a number of times. This was our fist experience with the new owner and we were pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food was. We are most definitely going to make it a Sunday morning habit. The only thing was that the coffee was a little bitter it had an almost burnt flavor. Not gonna stop is from going.
Not your typical diner! Lots of smoky handmade dishes. Phenomenal beer list. Friendly service. We talked to the manager for a while - she is also the pastry chef. She and our waitress were great. And the food ... oh the food!! Delicious. My wife ways it was the best. clam. chowder. ever!!
A little bit of a lunch rush, but great chicken and salad.
Exceptional food and service. We’re already planning our next trip there.
What a great transformation of this established diner. The food was terrific. Love the local sourcing Our waitress was terrific. Will be back.
The food and staff were both amazing! Highly recommend this place. However I am almost fearful to do so as then it will get so busy and be hard to get into!!!
Worth the stop!
