I frequent Empire as it is one of the diners in my neighborhood and I am a huge diner patron. It is the favorite of my father-in-law, and it completed a rather significant renovation and it well lit, nicely furnished, and now offers views to large flat screen TVs. The service is good, but fluctuates based on which waitress you... More

The prices are reasonable , the servers are friendly. The place is clean. Parking is plentiful. The menu is quite large so things like seafood items are frozen . All in all it was a good experience for a diner. I only have one question why do they stop serving waffles after 4 p.m.?

We visited a nearby cemetery and the gal in the office Empire as the best in the area. It would be the best diner in any area. Spotless, friendly and great Greek salad.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, you can't go wrong. The waitresses are friendly and like to banter with the regulars. There is also a nice assortment of fresh baked... More

I like going here. Service is good, prices are good. Food is OK. The section of town is the only part not to like.

My mother treated us to dinner at a restaurant for my birthday. It was at the Empire Diner, in Lansdowne. It appears to be a newly remodeled place with ample parking and easy access. After being seated in this diner, we noticed that the menu was pretty big, like one found in a fancy restaurant. As it turns out, almost... More

I went to this diner for the 1st time based on other reviews on another website. The atmosphere was inviting and bright. The food was good, though not great. It was well worth the reasonable prices and the portions were large. The lemon meringue pie was excellent. I had the hot turkey sandwich, which was good. The service was also... More
