This place was not just a late night stop. It was literally a part of my family. So many important memories were made here, be it celebrating a graduation or the conclusion of a school play, returning... home after time away, or even saying goodbye to a loved one, the people and the surroundings of the Pank were there to help celebrate our triumphs and mourn our losses.
The streusel French toast was legendary, but there was nary a bad item on the menu. The Peterpank even hosted my rehearsal dinner.
America is running out of small businesses that become institutions. No doubt something depressing like a pharmacy will be placed over the ashes of the Peterpank. But will the employees remember your name, or make sure to give your children a hug and balloon on their birthday? Will the owner sit with you and congratulate you when you get accepted to college? Will they actually care?
People do not weep over the closing of many places, but when I head north on 9 towards th Parkway, the dark sign and empty parking lot tugs at my heart a little. Support your local institutions and cherish them...before they are all gone.

Waitress was horrible, she kept talking to everyone else instead of actually getting our order. He had to wait 15 mins before she decided to see if we were ready to order. It was morning and barely an...yone was in the diner. She was just too busy talking up a storm and drinking water to pay attention. This was the second time we went and it was the same waitress. Never going again. See More

Great breakfast on my last day (April 2, 2014) in New Jersey !! Go see Alex the manager and tell him Irene from Florida said, "Hello". Peterpank was always a stopping place after the partying was... over. I left the area in 1978 to join the Navy, but, Wow, when I walked in the door, I felt like home to the best homemade eating place in town !! See More

I came around 12 am tonight and was seated right away. The waitress that served me was VERY friendly and attentative. The Greek gyro wrap I had was fresh and filling, and the fries were perfect.

One dish says it all: DISCO FRIES WITH CHICKEN!! The best around! I've never had any issues with staff, always pleasant. There is a major problem though. The place needs major updating! It's not ...the cleanest; the dirty, peeling wallpaper is from 1986 literally. The hanging lights bulbs are all different or they don't work at all. The carpeting needs to be picked up. RENOVATE!!!

Food wasn't all that great & the entire time the hostess was talking to someone about his mother's medical problems next to us while we were eating

Will miss this place a lifetime of memories.
Best Veal parmesan ever!!

Anyone who knows me knows food is my passion and all I've ever wanted to do with my life. Things may have not went according to the original plan and path I was on but that is called life. This gives me the opportunity to show the showcase me and my style. I'm going to have easy to follow recipes, techniques, reviews and all things food related, as well as sharing my stories and experiences from my 20+ years inside a kitchen. I'm also gonna have 2 amazing little helpers assisting me at times. So please follow along as I embark on this journey. I'm open to feedback, questions, ideas, and requests. Thank you.

It is with a heavy, that Dave the Baker lost his battle with Cancer this past weekend. I will post arrangements as i know them. Out Diner family is HEARTBROKEN. God Bless DAVE, guess God needed a GREAT BAKER. And he got him. Rest Easy Dave we all love ya.

To all of our customers, friends, and family who became part of my family: It is with a very heavy heart, and very bittersweet, that I tell you, the Peterpank has been sold. Our last day will be the end of December. December 17, 2015 will start our 58th year in business. That is a damn long run for any family, to own, run, and operate, any business, especially a Diner. Like any business, or life in general, there were many, many, many GREAT times for us here. And w...
