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.

Open 24hrs/day seven days a week, this place is a classic New York City diner. Great food, good service and a lot of local flavor, (both people and food) Staying nearby at the Hilton Garden Inn, the hotel staff recommended this a a good breakfast place. It's only a short ten minute walk from the hotel and it's really worth... More

After a long day on LIC, we were looking for someplace to grab an inexpensive meal. We are not New Yorkers, but it seemed like this must be a classic NY diner. The menu is extensive. If there is not something on this menu for you then you must not be hungry! There was plenty of wait staff and everyone... More

Me and partner were visiting over new year from England for 5 nights! The fist couple of days we ate in time square but didn't think much to the food (and it was so pricey in the city) so we tried the dinner at the end of the road and we were amazed and how yummy the food was! My... More

Our sons wanted a real NYC diner experience. The Court Square was everything we wanted. Excellent food and service was top notch. They even put fresh strawberries in the Daiquiris!! You won't be disappointed!

I don't have high expectations for diners other than being affordable with speedy service. So this place ticked all the boxes. This trip I visited with my 10 month old son (in a stroller) - and when the staff saw me struggling with the stairs they came out to help me - I really appreciated that.

We visited here twice. First time no problem and service was great. The second visit I think we were forgotten but when the food arrived it was great! Huge portions of great tasting food in an authentic diner. Would definitely recommend.
