Ignore all the photos on their website. The place was updated to a wonderful diner motif about a year ago. It didn't change the food, however, which has always been "very good restaurant" quality.

Food is fine, but better diners abound

LIC needs more diners, this one is convenient and near Court Square station. Service is fine, but food is average. Reasonably priced but nothing exceptional

If the show cheers was set in a diner this is where they would have filmed it. Two brothers that are fixtures in the joint and have everything you could want.

I love diners...this one wasn't BAD it just wasn't good. it was...hm. mediocre. The waitress was really nice. the place was almost empty (a local guy reading a paper at the counter).

This is a well priced Diner below Court Square subway 7 station. It has an extensive inexpensive menu. The Diner is spotlessly clean with friendly attentive staff. A good place to call in for supper after the show or dinner before the show. The diner is open 24hrs. We used the diner whilst staying at the Ravel Hotel.

Would highly recommend this diner for breakfast as it was so tasty and very reasonable. We had the French toast which was really good and the coffee refilled every time before the cup was empty. The staff were so friendly and really chatted to us. There is also a bakery that looked so good but we were so stuffed after... More
