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.

Just as we expected.

Wanted to experience a genuine American diner. Right next (virtually under) the Court Square station on the 7 subway line. Menu is huge, four of us all had something different and it came fast and was hot and tasty. The prices were cheaper than in Manhattan and we would eat there again.

It looks like a classic American diner from outside (or as we imagined one). Inside, it's just another diner with less charm than we expected to be. The decor is rather nice, but somehow that doesn't go along with the vibe. The food is standard, and the price justifies. Broad range of choice as any mid-large diner would do -... More

great decor, cheesecake, historic, nice people. A true place. A DINER with one N ! The only reason to go there, avoid the ps1 nearby, you will see more here.

We enjoyed our meal at this diner around the corner from our rented apartment. The menu selections were good (even for vegetarians like us). The service was quick and the food was good. The prices are very reasonable. I would definitely go again if we were in the area.

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). The outside architecture is cool! The lemon meringue pie was...odd: the white was like air (needs more ooomph) the yellow wasn't lemony enough and a bit gluey, and... More
