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.

We only drank (vanilla milk shake and greek iced coffee frappe) but everything was fine and the service was very kind. Outside and inside it is the classic old-styled diner. We liked it.

We came here fairly late in the evening and got the French Toast, Sausage, Jumbo Wings and Disco Fries. The service was very slow, especially considering there was only a few other people. It seemed like other tables around us got served faster than us. Some of the food was ok, some of it was not good.

In a changing Long Island City the Court Square Diner has always provided great food in more than abundant quantities at a very fair price. The 8 oz. cheese burger was cooked to my order and served hot. The egg sandwich of soft eggs and well done bacon came the way I liked it. A great diner in a great... More

Food was as expected, good tasting, place looks great on the outside and it is a place you have to try when in NY to get the vintage diner experience.

In my opinion, you can't go to NYC and not eat at a diner or delicatessen. Court Square fills the bill for both. Huge sandwiches, fresh fries & onion rings, delicious slaw and pickles. The food is not cheap, but very reasonable for what you get. The desserts are great too! So glad we chose this place.

Before 5k run, I had an amazing breakfast in this place. There are lots of options in the menu, but everything looks similar it's a typical American breakfast.

Came with friends for a bite to eat and couldn't figure out what to have everything looked so good. Decided on an order of "disco fries". They were great. My husband had a hamburger and it was good as well. Great atmosphere we really enjoyed our visit. Hope we come back the shakes looked wonderful just couldn't eat another bite.
