I have ben coming to Rainbow for about 25 years at this point and it's clear the Corona put a stress on Bill. He's always been mean to everyone and yells at everyone but I think he's too much now. Today while I was eating...lunch I watched him scream at two women and. a little girl in the lobby of the diner. I was sitting by the front and the grandma asked for change for the little candy machine and he gave her the change and then went into the lobby screaming at this little girl, her mom and grandma. Then they left as he yelled at them and he came back in and was yelling about b*itches, and cursing right in front of the rest of the diner for like 10 minutes. I think it's time for Rainbow to have someone else take over. The food is still good but who wants that kind of drama?More

This is an old fashioned New Jersey Diner. I come here several times a month and always have a great meal. I stopped for lunch yesterday and had a Turkey Club with French Fries and the food was excellent. The server couldn't have been better....She was right on top of everything. Great Food, Great Service, Great Prices. It just doesn't get any better.More

Good food, but swelteringly hot. Made it uncomfortable to eat. Plenty of food for money though, and we wound up taking some of it home. Tight parking lot.

Food is always good. Tents are up to protect you from sun, not sure about rain protection. The Cuban sandwich is my favorite thing here.

I had gone to the Rainbow Dinner for years untill I moved out of the area. I loved it so much that I included it on my week long Aniversary tour. I don't have to cook for the week as a gift...well my mouth was...watering, I couldn't wait to taste that fabulous Tzatziki. What a disappointment!! We got it to go as that was only thing available during the Covid-19 shut down. It was so bad I tossed it and went on line to see if it had changed owners. It hadn't. The owners better get their butts to that dinner and clean house. it was a huge let down.More

The Rainbow Resturant -Diner has the best breakfast, lunches, and dinners in the area. Have never been disapointed. Servers are always pleasant and go out of their way to make sure you are satisified.

Stopped in to the Rainbow Diner for dinner. Classic New Jersey diner with a large menu. Opted for the Stuffed Shrimp off of the specials menu. Started with a delicious cup of chicken soup. The Stuffed Shrimp plate was full of food; four stuffed shrimp....The stuffing was excellent. Finished with classic chocolate pudding. Everything I ate was delicious and the waiter was very attentive. Will definitely stop in again.More

We were recently at the Rainbow Diner for dinner. We have been here many times before. The food this week was exceptionally good. The food was delicious, and served nice and hot. I ordered a seafood dish, which was cooked perfectly. The bread pudding was...very good, and creamy. I definitely recommend this restaurant as having consistently very good food!!More

Stopped in for dinner while passing through area. My husband ordered chicken croquettes. Couldn't find an ounce of chicken in them-all bread and breadcrumbs. Mashed potatoes were instant (in our opinion). Meatloaf tasted frozen. Finally, we ordered cooked cabbage as a side, and got sour...kraut. Whole meal was disappointing. Won't be going back.More
