Great diner food.

We have lots of diners in the Colonie/Latham area, and most of them are pretty good. This is a busy place at breakfast time, but it doesn't take long to get seated. Food is very good, and you get lots of it.

This was not my first time at 76 Diner. We have been coming here for 16 yrs plus. I have to say today visit was the worst experience I have ever had at any restaurant.

Food was average quality, good but not a standout. We had steak Delmonico and Chicken Parmesan with spaghetti. Clam chowder was good.

While I'm glad that the clam chowder hit the spot, I'm bummed to hear you were left less than satisfied with your entrees.

Went there for breakfast and I ordered the Big Breakfast. Wow what a deal for under $10. I could not eat it all. The food is great and so is the service. It makes you feel goo when the staff treats you like family.

Again had the opportunity to visit the 76 Diner and again left with the impression why fix something that isn't broken. Luis, our waiter, represented an attentive well trained staff. The food was excellent, the diner was exceptionally clean, the wait staff was excellent and the food was good. I'll go for a repeat performance any time.

We come here for breakfast every Christmas Day! Always busy! Hasn't been renovated since the 70"s, but that's okay! You can overlook the décor, the food is solid, classic diner! Huge omelets, good coffee and friendly servers. What else could you want? AND they are open on holidays!!!

I had a very early 5 a.m. breakfast at the diner- very attentive waiter who made sure I got exactly what I wanted. A couple of college students in a booth nearby were talking, mixing in lots of profanity, and the person on duty at the cash register quietly asked them to clean up their act- I hadn't said anything,...
