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.

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

I have been coming here for years, and feel like walking into my dining room at this point. Staff is super friendly. Bianca is one of the best waitresses i have came across in NYC. The food comes in generous portions, good quality, and reasonable pricing. Their specials are what you should go for, and it changes offering something for... More

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
