The service on Sunday June 22 at 5:00 pm was terrible. Young male server was surly, got the order wrong, and never came back to the table to check on the food. We had sandwiches which came with cole slaw and a pickle. The portions were large but the quality only fair. Lester's Diner used to be great. I'm not... More

We have gone to Lester's in Margate before and have been pleased, and we liked Lester's in Sunrise even better. We were seated quickly, and our server, Nicholas, served our meals promptly and efficiently. He was friendly and professional. My husband got the Greek special dinner with three different Greek dishes, and he loved it. All dinners come with soup... More

I see many others giving very positive reviews, so for that reason only, we might give them another shot. It also seems from the reviews, the ones that liked it were eating breakfast, we had dinner here. Service was very slow, although very friendly. The one waitress was a bit over the top noisy and over friendly, kind of annoying... More

First thing that jumped out at me was the menu prices. Wow! For this money I could have gone to Fridays or Chilies. Food was ho-hum for the price. Was "OK" I guess. Really overpriced designer dinner. Probobly won't be back

Wow ! Breakfast all day. And Greek meals on the menu. The specials looked great. Lamb even. Three had breakfast at lunchtime, the forth had Greek spinach pie. Service was very fast. Food was great. If I lived nearby, I'd work my way through the menu.

Great food and friendly waitstaff. Best chicken noodle soup I've ever had. Had the Greek Combo Platter for dinner. Great Greek food but a bit too much food for me and since we're travelling we couldn't take the leftovers with us. Excellent cheesecake. Lots of other yummy looking desserts in case as we left. Definitely recommend this place.

Always looking for someplace to eat near Sawgrass and this is great. We have been there for breakfast and dinner and neither meal disappointed. Great service and fresh food at reasonable prices. Plus, they are open late.

Went there for a late lunch with friends. I had the open ribeye which was like eating a piece of leather...........just as tasteless and someone else had the stuffed cabbage rolls which had no flavor. This is the second and last time we have been and been disappointed each time. Service was pretty awful as well.....there are plenty of other... More

I didn't this place despite previous visits to Sunrise. The eggs, salads and bread delicious. The american coffee is served at every moment without aditional cost. It is easy Access near sawgrass mill outlet.

I have been enjoying the 3 South Florida Lester's Diners for about 8 years. The original restaurant is north of Fort Lauderdale International Airport and I live near the Sunrise,Florida location. The restaurants are owned by Greek-American families originally from Sparta. For breakfast this place cannot be beat. The service has always been prompt and the food arrives piping hot.... More
