Great American dinner

Great food. Huge potions. Got all the American classics you'd expect. Friendly service. Great place for a family meal.

Everything about my meal was terrible. I was expecting better than this based on other reviews. I got takeout. I got a burger topped with pulled pork. There was no flavour whatsoever. The bun was soggy to the point it felt wet and fell apart on first bite. Sweet potato fries were also soggy. I collectes food on time as... More

If you can't find something you like here you really shouldn't be dining out! So many different dishes and every one of the six that we tried was excellent, just about everything comes with a choice of variations and then various dressings, even "chocolate cake" had more choice s than I could keep up with. The waiter was a great... More

A very elaborate menu. You can have it all here. Just be prepared to pay a lot. Two breakfast with eggs, sausage and home fries with toast & coffee was $30.00. Pricey but good. Friendly staff, convenient to our hotel and open 24 hours.

We recently stayed at the Best Western and they recommended getting delivery from the Belaire. We were very happy with our meals. Food arrived quickly and was still warm. We had a variety, from hot turkey platter, to meatball grinder to turkey club along with the chicken noodle soup. Everything was great and they knew to include lots of napkins,... More

This large diner is competing with many new "hot spots" in the Astoria and Long Island City area. We enjoyed brunch chosen from the special menu and our friend ordered from the general menu. We all were satisfied. Our food was imaginative and well prepared. Service was excellent and even the coffee was better than the usual diner brew. Note... More

The food is pretty good and the service is fast, but they are a little quirky in that they always mess up the order just slightly. This would usually annoy me, but I have eaten here three times and each time the mistake was a good mistake. Get the dinner special if you are going to share. It is worth... More

We go here on a fairly regular basis. We came 2 years in a row for Thanksgiving with a group of people. My husband is a vegan, so they have a couple of options for him including a veggie burger. For me i recommend, the salad platter dinner, Cobb salad with blue cheese dressing, pasta and turkey dinner.the chocolate cake... More

The porgie was the whole fish, so of course there were a lot of bones. But it was a little salty. The sides were large portions of steamed spinach and lemon potatoes. Delicious.

Discovered this place while walking from my Hotel (Super 8) to the Subway Station (at Broadway). Had a lunch and two dinners there... every single meal was perfect. The staff was great as well, the place had a nice retro look and the booths were clean and comfortable. They have a huge menu, and I regret having left, not being... More
