Prior to flying out of LaGuardia, we stopped in for a bite. This is the diner I had hoped to find all week and was glad a friend took me there before I left NY. The diner is clean and the staff is great. We had burgers, wraps, fries etc. the food was very good and appeared as though it... More

This place is never a disappointment; no matter what time of day we go there. Breakfast is quick and easy. Lunch serves huge portions at reasonable prices. Dinner is hot, tasty, good portions and reasonable prices. This is our go to place on the way to or from LaGuardia airport. Easy to get to. You head out of the 94th... More

We were advised to go and grab lunch here. It was close to our hotel so we tried it. WOW The greek salad had about $10 Canadian of Feta Cheese on it, vine wraps, eggs, and capers. There is nothing fancy about the setting, just a regular diner but the food was so good that we were back for supper.

I cannot in good conscious recommend this restaurant. I went here once in 2013 and once in 2014, both times with other people. I will never go back to this place. Both times the experience ended badly. July 4th of 2013 I had their Pizza Burger, which I thought was a total failure, but I used my debit card and... More

The food was tasty but nothing special. Ate here twice for breakfast. I suspect some of the Greek dinner items might be better but earlier in the day meals are less.... Memorable. Service is just OK but frankly it's pretty much equal to any NY/nj diner in this entire review! If you're IN the neighborhood eat there but don't go... More

Very convenient when flying in/out of LaGuardia! The Buccaneer Diner has lots of delicious choices. They even have a full bar, if you're so inclined.

This is a place that the concierge recommended from the hotel I was staying near the airport. The atmosphere reminded me of New York ..lol. I told a couple from the hotel about it and they thought that the food was really good. I ate a gyro with fries and a greek sald. I thought that it was pretty good.... More

We went for a Saturday morning breakfast after picking someone up from La Guardia. It's a rather large diner with a very extensive menu. We ordered a variety of breakfast foods (pancakes, eggs, breakfast sandwiches, hash browns, bacon, sausage, etc.) Everything was very good....typical diner food. The only thing I was not keen on were the hash browns. They had... More

Marisol who was my server was a doll. Spirited and friendly , she went about her job with efficiency and speed all the while engaging with incessant good-natured chatter with her adoring customers. I had a taste for meat loaf , mash potatoes(or white rice brown gravy topped with cooked onions) and corn. They did not have the meat loaf.... More

We went for breakfast, very generous portion and good value for money. There's a glass of orange juice go with each meal. My first time to have avocado omelette and love it. They do delivery too.
