Took a party of six for dinner to The Golden Reef this weekend. Though a busy Saturday night, my reservation was honored and we were seated immediately. The food was outstanding. Big, fresh and beautiful salads to start the meal. Entrees did not disappoint. The stuffed shrimp were large and tasty. Chicken Portobello was a hit, as well as the... More

I recently stopped at this diner for breakfast with a friend early one saturday morning. The diner is pretty large and is hard to miss but the parking lot was pretty small. The parking lot also had a valet but he appeared to only park certain cars - he didnt park mine or my friends. Once you enter the diner... More

I have been coming here since I was in high school. Pretty much always get the Burger Deluxe with a bowl of gravy for the fries and a vanilla egg cream. Unless I come for breakfast which is also very good. The place has never been busier. It's amazing to watch how quickly everyone Works.

This diner has produced quality food and a menu that might take an hour to read. Every choice is up to snuff and if not the server will tell you not to order it. Greek, Mediterranean, Italian, American fare are all served with quality, fresh ingredients and portions to make the hungriest satisfied. Anything on the menu that strikes you,... More

Always a very good diner. I liked it better when they served free celery, carrots and olives. No more.....I would recommend this diner to all.

Service is friendly, food is plentiful, diner food is excellent (not sure about more elaborate fare). Prices are a little high but most people get two meals from a normal meal. Breakfast is their speciality. Lot of regulars fequent here.

Visited the Golden Reef Diner while staying in Rockville Centre on business. Staff were very friendly and service was prompt. Portions were very big and left me wanting for nothing. Visited twice during my week stay and wasn't disappointed.

Really fun Diner atmosphere. Huge portions; but note that it is a bit pricey. Thumbs up to the burgers and turkey burgers, as well as the classic ham sandwich! Employees seemed super cool on the whole. Our waiter was a bit grouchy but he was so over the top about it that it was hilarious, and he was definitely attentive.... More

The parking here is a problem. Very few places to park and if the small lot is full, you must use the public lot which is a pay lot. At least the public lot is close. Let's start with the price. Kind of on the up side for having lunch. Of course this is a diner which serves one large... More
