We popped into this diner on our first morning in New York as it was conveniently located next to the Court Square subway station and near to our hotel. We both tried the pancakes, one with just bacon and the other with bacon, ham, sausage and egg. The portions were very generous but we were not blown away by the... More

My wife and I hosted an after wedding Sunday brunch at the diner in the separate dining room for about 35 people. Excellent food, service and reasonable prices. Everyone was very satisfied; many out-of-towners impressed with their first experience in a "real" NYC diner. Event was a total success. Thank you Court Square Diner!

Convenient, just under the Court Square 7 station. Appears to be well liked by locals. Food is reasonably priced and the service was very personal.

One of the best diners I have been too. Huge portions, great value and friendly staff. Great selection of cakes too. They will also make something special for you if they have the ingredients. Only downside is you are so full after your main meal you can not fit in the cake.

So much choice for breakfast but I finally decided on the French Toast Deluxe, which was huge but very tasty! Not greasy at all. Service was very friendly, coffee flowed freely and staff were able to crack a few jokes to liven up what looked like an otherwise quiet morning.

This diner is tucked under the #7 subway on 23rd Street, in Long Island City. Old fashioned style with typical diner fare. We had breakfast. Coffee was a bit slow in coming.. We tried omelets, and chocolate chip pancakes which were a bit dry, but plentiful with tiny chips, not too over sweet. The price was reasonable and we were... More

We had breakfast here (pancakes, and a big breakfast) and it was really good quality, big portions and proper American food. Really recommend this place if you're staying in Long Island City.

I live about a ten minute walk from the Court Square Diner, so occasionally dine here, but more often than not I order for delivery. The food here is consistent and what one expects from NYC diner food: decent burgers, great omelets, disco fries, a good chicken souvlaki platter, nice chicken salad, good melts and sizable portions. I've had a... More
