Great Place to eat

I have been here 3 times and the experience has always been good. The staff are efficient and friendly. The food is always good with very large portions and very reasonable prices. This is a favorite place for many of the local residents.

The food was great! HUGE portions ! (my chicken sandwich was actually 2 huge chicken breasts, and not just one). the service was horribly SLOW. I think there was one waiter for an entire area of the restaurant. We were not offered refills of our drinks and it took a very long time to get our check. If you have... More

They offer such a wide variety of options but, in my opinion the Chicken Corn Chowder is the best. Huge portions....

Great selection on menu. Great place to a resonable meal and very resonably priced. I get the Greek Salad with chicken. Also the soups are always good. Basic egg and tuna salad dishes always good.

This diner is located near La Guardia airport and my wife thought that it would be a good place to grab a quick bite before our flight. Unfortunately, it wasn't. My wife had a hamburger that was supposed to be medium-medium well. It was so well done it was inedible. I ordered a tuna melt. The cheese was barely melted... More

This diner is very dated and gives off the impression that it is old and dirty. Food was okay. Had a BLT and fries. Had to remind my waitress to bring the gravy twice. I have eaten here before. Average or below typical diner food. Mens Bathroom was dirty and smelled Only upside to this diner is that it is... More

On our way to the Long Island Wineries, we decided to stop at the Buccaneer Diner for Breakfast. It’s a cute place, and old style diner, with the little juke boxes on the table. The food was good, fast, and hot. I got an egg and turkey bacon sandwich on a bagel, and my girlfriend got an omelet . We... More

Stopped here for breakfast as we wanted something different than what the hotel offered. It was a real retro diner with little juke boxes at each booth. Breakfast is a definite good deal. Just about anything you want. Service was friendly and fast and got water, coffee and tea quickly and meals were not far behind. Left very full and... More
