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.

This is the real thing, a top shelf New York diner! Both of us had burgers ( choice of 7 or 9 ounces) with the works. They were fabulous. Greek coffee is a plus. Great choice near LaGuardia airport.

I stopped at the Buccaneer Diner since it was within walking distance from my hotel. My first impression was very good as the waiter immediately greeted me and had me choose my own seat. The diner was fairly large with both tables throughout as well as seats along a counter. There was a small television atop the counter which was... More
