UPDATE! The Port Ewen Diner is reopening Saturday January 16th at 6 a.m.

The closure is due to a COVID-19 exposure.

Sad that they have to close for now, but this is another great example of a local Hudson Valley business putting our well being first and helping to stop the spread of this awful pandemic. The good news here is that they are planning to open back up when they can.

As soon as they are ready to reopen, we will update this article and would encourage everyone reading this to get a meal or two from them when they do. If you need some help on what to order, I would strongly recommend any of their burgers or their soups, they're some of the best around!
