I'm not a fan of diners or thumbing through a ten page menu, however the food and atmosphere of the Imperial are above average so this diner is worth mentioning. For the most part, the prices are reasonable and the service good. The ambience by the bar is definitely congenial and more cozy than a typical roadside diner.

Went for dinner on a recent trip to Long Island and was really impressed. Menu is very large, atmosphere is great, service was good. It was quiet on a Friday around 6:30 which was good for us but somewhat surprising, given how great the place was. I had chicken francese and it was good - not quite as good as... More

We had 20 people for a wedding rehearsal dinner, so families that did not know each other could get acquainted. I worked with Steve the manager, Felipe his assistant, and a fabulous waiter named Victor. Private room, glass enclosed, so that we had our own space but still felt part of this classic chrome-and-mirrors diner. We worked out a menu... More

Went the other day with six good friends and we were seated promptly. The waiter came right over and got us set up with menus and he paid close attention to us and we never had to look for him. Shortly after we placed our order, the food was delivered to our table and boy was it delicious!!! Great big... More

I was sold on my first visit for breakfast because of the quality of the homefries. A standard in any diner, but these are seasoned and cooked correctly. The rest of the menu is standard diner but the quality is good. Avoid the holiday and Sunday morning crowds which require a 5-10 minute wait but then that is a sign... More

The best diner near Long Beach. I didn't expect the exceptional value and friendly staff. Delicious cole slaw and pickles, just as if you were at a Jewish Deli! Always parking in this congested area of Freeport Long Island. It is worth the 7 mile drive than settling for the local diners in town.

It is a good diner, but my omelet was dry. It has a good reputation, so I expected more. Service was okay. I'll go back because my sister will take me, but I wouldn't go on my own. There are too many diners in Long Island to settle for good.
