Key City Diner Reopened June 17, 2024. Welcome Back!

Yesterday, June 17th 2024, to the delight of all their fans and loyal customers, Key City Diner on Rt 22 in Lopatcong, NJ (Phillipsburg area, Warren County) reopened its doors to reveal a totally redone, fresh modern look.

Key City Diner Renovated June 2024

I’m excited to share pictures of the newly renovated, better than ever, Key City Diner!

Back in 2022, the building caught fire, and the owner was forced to close down.

Today I happened to be driving past the diner when I noticed a full parking lot, and I had to stop in and see what the deal was.

It was great to walk in to a packed house… smiling hostesses and servers welcoming guests in the front door, the hustle and bustle of a well-loved restaurant, and all the great food smells.
