Decided to catch breakfast here before leaving Boston area. So glad we did! My eggs benedict were delicious. Eggs cooked perfectly. Served with home fries which I don't usually eat. These, though, were really homemade! I also had a fruit cup with fresh strawberries, blueberries and sliced bananas. My husband's eggs and bacon were well-prepared also. The only thing he did not care for was the Belgian waffle. He stated it was so-so. Otherwise, a good meal overall.

Very, Very busy which means good food. And it was! Got lucky and grabbed a seat out waiting too long. Veggie omelette with sausage was fantastic. Home fries were seasoned and cooked perfectly. The staff was friendly and the restaurant is clean. Coffee and unsweetened Iced tea was great. Best part of the meal was the grilled chocolate chip muffin. Wow.CASH ONLY

Wilson's is our go to diner in Waltham. I come to town once a month for work and love coming here for breakfast before a day of meetings. Classic diner food and the staff has been there a long time. Just a great place.

Old school classic diner in downtown Waltham is more of an experience than anything else. The wait for service was a bit much, and then there was the wait for the food which was another twenty minutes. On weekends there are no french fries with anything only home fries so don't even ask for them. Then there is the food itself which for our entire party was a little bland and lacked anything worth writing about. Three stars is all I can muster for this place mostly because it does have a good atmosphere.

Wilson’s Diner is truly a Waltham staple! I’ve been going there since I was a kid; Arthur, the original owner made everyone feel like family. I’ll admit, I was very skeptical when the new owners took over but I must say, they’ve done an amazing job! Customer service is a 10/10 and so is the food ?

What a great place! Not only was the food good and plentiful, but what made this place outstanding was the staff!. Everyone worked together to take care of us. We had 3 different waitstaff serving us the whole time. Once we noticed that, we noticed that no one person working here did one job. Everyone was pitching in to help their fellow employees in the overall goal of serving their customers. The experience was amazing to see in operation and our food came quick, we never had a want for anything while we were there. Our cups were always full and our needs were always met. Despite being busy, the staff were beyond friendly and helpful. We wish we lived here because we would come back again and again.One additional note, bring cash, Wilson's doesn't take cards. They have an onsite ATM but is charges a $3.50 fee.I can't recommend this place enough. If we ever find ourselves in the area, we will go out of our way to come here again.

I go here every time I visit my grandfather. They remember me and my grandfather's order every time and the waitresses are sweethearts. The owners even remember that me and my grandfather are italian. That proves the remember even the smallest details! They're all very personable. The food is out of this world, especially the corn beef hash. The coffee is perfectly brewed as well.


Great breakfast place love the bagel with egg,ham and cheese. The pancakes are so yummy here. I can't say I was in love with the homefries.

If you’re not grilling your blueberry muffin, you’re not living your best life. The crispy texture, the hint of salt, it’s life changing.

Cash only and $2.50 for the ATM. Not American traditional-very Greek. Very much out of another decade. No air conditioning on a very humid day and you have to go outside to wash your hands.

Great wholesome food at this family diner. The Benedict's are super tasty as is most of their food. And with reasonable prices you can't go wrong.

Haven't been here in awhile due to the pandemic and lack of funds to eat out. Decided to take my daughter out to have lunch with a little one on one time with each other. Place was almost fully packed. Service as always was prompt and friendly. Food was tasty, portions were good sized and was definitely filling ? I can't believe I ate the whole thing! Prices aren't too bad for freshly made-to-order grub. Whether it's breakfast, lunch or a light dinner you want to eat there's always something for everyone's taste buds. We will continue to return and to always recommend Wilson's Diner!! A little touch of homemade right here in Waltham. Good eats!!

A Father and Daughter Teem make this place trully great. It is like a magical time machine. It is somehow a place where the use the old cashregister and it still works! They also have Greek sausage, Loukaniko, that has orange peal in it. Wonderful. Alexis took this picture. Wow!
