I am surprised about the below ratings! We went there twice and did not like it, the first time I went for lunch and the chicken wrap was terrible, sweet potato fries were okay, I have tasted better at Kings Diner in Kingston.

The second time we went there was in the morning and we were directed to a dirty table and when I started reviewing the menu it was torn and dirty which was unappealing so we left and went to Pete's Cafe. I did not like it, it was too noisy and just did not seem that clean to me.....like I said I am shocked about the below reviews.

my daughter came from california and we made this one of our "we need to go here" visits. The food was very good. i had the mac and cheese and my daughter had the fish n chips. she wanted a souvenier, and ordered a mug which was on the menu. when we got our bill, the mug wasn't on it. We were told by the cashier they didnt sell the mugs anymore. Do you think the waitress would have known this? Anyone know where I can get a mug? The prices were reasonable and a good deal. This is definitely a place to go again.

ZAGAT my butt.... Not worth the 10mi trip from the TAC (Taconic State Parkway). Insects in the cocktails, missing alcohol from their "premier drinks", dried-out over-cooked fried food (how can you mess up Chicken Fingers?), overcooked Pork Loin, missing Au Jus for Prime Rib ... then the proverbial icing on the cake ... they FORCE CHARGE you 20% tip (even after leaving cash on the table), and when you call them on it, they tell you its not their problem and to call your bank. Can only hope the other places on the Diners, Dives & Drive-ins show are better. Coincidentally, there are 2 pictures of NJ Diners, the Bendix Diner (in Hasbrouck Heights on Rte 17) and the Tick-Tock Diner (in Clifton on Rte 3 West) .... both are phenomenally better.

Pros: if you want overpriced food with small quantities, this is the place

Cons: shyster management, crappy service

Generally speaking, the food at the Eveready Diner is very good. I've not been disappointed with anything I've ordered to date. I find that the [young] staff can sometimes be less than service-oriented, but for a diner it's somewhat tolerable. As always, try to avoid busy times at any diner in order to lessen your wait, otherwise, this is a nice place to enjoy a good meal.

The meals are so ample that you can split them.
We usually do and have Roast Dinner, Fish Dinner, Gyro, or Macaronni and Cheese with a side salad. The fresh vegetable side is usually several squash with carrots and brocolli. Lemon pie is fanstic. The ice cream sundaes too much to eat. The menu is very extensive with hot dogs and burgers to much more "refined" tastes. This is one of the best American Diners in America and we have been to many, including the one last built. This is just north of FDR's home and the Hyde Park Drive-In Movie theater (real outdoor movies), and south of the Vanderbuilt Estate. Choosing between the Everready and the Culinary Institute of America's restaurants is hard, but we usually end up at the Everready.

Pros: Its the best in Dutchess County and tops in America

Cons: Nothing

I am a regular at the dinner, and yes at times it can be a wait, but normally that is due to the time you go, you go between 5-7pm its dinner rush hours you go before or after its not too bad, i rather go to a Diner with people it everybody can't be wrong??? than empty diner. The food is good, The waitress I get is very polite takes care of you with refills. There short ribs when they make are a Must!!
Its a good all rounded diner, even the bathrooms are good.
in short, you just need to pick the right time or just enjoy the atmosphere.

This is a diner on steroids. Pretty much everything on the menu is really well done, typical stuff as well as a few interesting twists. The cherry coke is the REAL deal, cola and cherry syrup, garnished with a handful of maraschino cherries in a glass large enough to fill a fishbowl with. I'm not pretending this is haute cuisine, but sometimes you just want a massive burger cooked perfectly. The fresh fruit salad is usually quite good, and the fries are perfectly cooked.

It is filled with kitsch, but not so that you want to gag. There is a bar with a lot of fancy bottles, but the prices don't encourage you to have an adult beverage. Stick to the milkshakes in this place. This place sometimes fills up with teenagers, and you may need to wait, but it isn't usually too long.

Pros: good diner standards, fresh ingredients, attentive staff

The last time that I visited the restaurant I had to wait almost 20 mins to be seated. Once seated, there was an additional wait for the waiter to come over to order our drinks. It took forever for him to return for us to order our food. Almost an hour later we received our cold food and still hadn't gotten the drinks that we had ordered. I will never go back there. The service was horrible.
