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.

Good food, good experience

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.

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

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.

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
