Good service! The soups are delicious. Went there for dinner and again got breakfast. The cream of turkey soup is superb. The omelets are excellent! The staff will cater to your mood. They will stay on top or leave you alone if you are in a meeting. Very good!

We have been regular weekly customers of Lester's Diner in Margate for over three years. We have our favorite waitress who always goes out of her way to make our experience a good one, which it always has been...up until today (8/6/14). I was shocked to be yelled at and threatened by the women behind the counter over a question... More

My parents are in their 80's and still get around fairly well, but it's difficult finding a restaurant that isn't too loud, has food that isn't too exotic and has waiters that are more understanding. BINGO! We took our parents there the other night just for an evening out. They had the most wonderful experience. Everyone was friendly and talkative.... More

If you are expecting an elegant atmosphere, this is not the place for you. This is a diner, nothing more and nothing less. The food is diner food and it's not bad. It's also not 5 star good. Bob and I eat here about once a month. We can take the daily newspaper and read it while we linger over... More

My wife and I took our five year old granddaughter to breakfast at the Margate Lester’s Diner this morning. We have been customers for twenty-five years or more. We ask for and were given a booster for our granddaughter. She can’t fit in a high chair and can’t reach the table from the chair. We have never had a problem... More

It's not a visit to Florida without going to Lesters. We like the old photos on the wall. Food is good. Try the matzo ball soup. However, the matzo balls are, well, ehh but the soup is delicious. We will be back!

There were 5 in our party. The waitress was super friendly. Service was a little slow, we waited awhile for the check. In total we were there for 2 hrs, not because we wanted to be though. Entree was good but nothing to write home about. The dessert was spectacular.

We just moved to Coconut Creek. Lester's is a very good diner, the food is good. This morning I had the breakfast special with Polish sausage. The sausage is extremely salty, and I asked for bacon instead. I told them this because many seniors cannot eat salty foods because of blood pressure problems. We have also eaten lunch and dinner...
