Spa Restaurant

Spa Diner under new ownership in Hoboken

A couple years ago, the Spa Diner was included in a Hoboken411 list of local businesses that were up for sale.

Well, it’s time to close that thought – as “The Spa” is officially under new ownership. The operation will continue “as is” for the foreseeable future. So no worries about a favorite “dirty spoon” closing anytime soon!

Listen to owner Sean McGarr talk about the Spa Diner – in an interview we did with him yesterday with Hoboken Internet Radio. Great stuff (you can also listen to the full interview to hear about their other exciting Hoboken projects – including the exciting House of ‘Que authentic Texas style BBQ restaurant this summer!)

    the only place in town where you can get a pack of newports with your cheesecake.

    (look at the dessert case, so so soooo ghetto)

    great burgers though if you have had a little too much to drink and taste and cleanliness does not matter.

    Enjoy it while you can.

    why???? are they closing? i hope not, as much as I make fun of it, I think the place is classic.

  4. FAP says:

    The building is being (has been?) sold and SPA will be out.

  5. noone says:

    i have been going to the spa for ten years now and am so thrilled it has not been sold. The food comes out before you know it and it tastes great. The waiters and waitresses are great for what they deal with. Although at times they may seem moody or rude, if you see the people they have to put up with, you would understand. OVerall its one of the few mom and pop coffee shops out there.

    I’m saddened to say that I haven’t visited the very fine Spa establishment in a few years…since I became an old fart and moved uptown.

    I used to be a regular and I always found it amazing that no matter what time I went, it always appeared to be the same staff of waiters and cooks. I think they all must have worked 24/7.

    One of the great things about the Spa is that Potatochip/Noone never goes there.

  11. emarche says:

    Speaking of which…I think we’re almost due for Potatochip/Noone’s latest incarnation to debut. I can’t wait!

    The Spa…used to eat there. I thought it would be impossible to screw up breakfast, but they did! That and i think the place is filthy, but thats just my opinion. The malibu is the only other alternative I guess, but somewhat out of the way.

    Went to Spa around midnight Sunday after a couple drinks. There were 2 roaches crawling on the wall by our booth. Right above the table. I couldn’t finish my meal – just wanted to get out. I will NEVER go there again. Next time, we’ll just head home and cook something there. Yuck!

    Every town needs a reliable greasy spoon, it would seem.
    For late night/early a.m. heart attack food that neutralizes the massive alcohol consumption.

    Especially in Hoboken.

    The Spa has been it for at least 20 years.

    Roaches & rat hairs are part of the late night ambience.
    And they’re everywhere in the restaurant region, night & day.

    Just more transparent at The Spa.

    Bon Appetit!
