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

I had a late lunch with some business associates at the Buccaneer Diner. This place has an extensive menu and all of us seemed to enjoy our lunch. It has everything from breakfast food to burgers to dinner entrees. They also have a cooler with fabulous looking cakes and cheese cakes, although I passed on dessert during my visit to... More

I stopped by at the recommendation of a near by hotel for dinner after flying in to the city. I found the menu very extensive which sometimes worries me as a skeptic how can one restaurant be all things to all people. I ordered the fajita wrap with fries and it was fresh, hot and delicious. The waitress kept my... More

It took me this long to write this review after our horrible experience at this so called diner. Overpriced,overcooked, overly rude(if they don't know you), overly staffed for caustic and inept service.

I love this diner. I've been here a few times whenever I'm in town. I love diner grub, especially the jumbo steak burgers. Try their waffle fries too. The portions are huge so go hungry!

No where but NY do you get the variety of a diner like this - I had goulash and my husband had lasagna - and we could have had greek, burgers, or even stuffed lobster. Insane. Our food came out quick and hot and was quite good; service was expedient and prices were reasonable. I do wish I had taken... More

The Buccaneer is highly recommended for brunch, opened 24 hours and it is close to the airports. There is a wide variety of items on the menu for all ages and the service is excellent. Overall, the prices are reasonable.
