At American Dream in East Rutherford, Around The Clock Diner  wows with its familiar yet refined take on the classic diner experience. Opened earlier this year, Around The Clock is named after its iconic two-story clock centerpiece. The diner offers high-quality ingredients, inventive dinner options, and playful spins on traditional favorites, such as donut-topped shakes.

Near MetLife Stadium, Around The Clock Diner boasts an extensive menu catering to every craving. From all-day breakfast to fulfilling steaks, lively pasta dishes, and refreshing cocktails, it caters to every preference. Notably, it stays open until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, making it an ideal spot for post-game or late-night cravings.

True to the essence of great diners, Around The Clock Diner ensures that breakfast aficionados can indulge in their favorite morning treats at any hour. Highlights include the Mixed Berry “Stuffie” French toast, Jersey Benny eggs benedict, and a full waffle menu. For heartier appetites, there are classics like the Reuben sandwich, flavor-packed burgers, and indulgent off-the-griddle offerings.

However, what truly sets Around The Clock Diner apart is its commitment to elevating the diner experience. The dinner menu features enticing options like the vegan cauliflower steak, comforting French onion soup, and perfectly seared and seasoned prime ribeyes. Moreover, their hand-dipped, house-baked donuts—customizable with a variety of glazes and toppings—are a must-try.

The restaurant’s striking two-story dining room, designed by renowned architect Richard Bloch, exudes an inviting ambiance reminiscent of a European train station.

Whether seeking a meal after a day of shopping, pre-game sustenance, or simply a satisfying dining experience, Around The Clock Diner promises something for everyone. Located at American Dream Court A, Level 3 in East Rutherford, NJ, it stands out as a Jersey-owned gem.
