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...

We were with a group. We had pre-ordered our selections. The salad was fresh and OK, even with ice berg lettuce. My fish, stuffed with spinach and feta cheese, was overcooked and not particularly fresh. The sweet potato; however, was huge. The green beans were not green. We had paid for another member of our party who could not come,... More

The food is ok and for the price it's ok as well. The people who work here are pretty old, snobby, uninviting and rude at times when asking questions about the menu. Surprised this place is still open. Has a home feeling when you dining in and it's just your typical diner foods, nothing amazing or special.

I work across the street from this restaurant and could eat lunch there everyday if I felt welcome. I went there once and the hostess ignored me. Some other people came in and she ran over to seat them. I had to finally ask for a seat. Everyone who worked there acted strange, even the waitress and what appeared to... More
