We've been enjoying the Empire Diner for at least 25 years. The food is very good and reasonably priced, and dinners usually include guaranteed leftovers for us. Also a great place for a weekend breakfast. The staff is always friendly, and it's family-owned so someone is always there to see that things go smoothly. The Empire continues to be a... More

Food was just terrible. Service was average. There really was nothing that I liked hence the reason to never return. Even the coffee was weak and not fresh. I believe a diner should have at the very least fresh coffee.

The breakfast menu is satisfying any time of day. The pastries are phenomenal!! The service is good as well but it does get crowed quickly on the weekends... More

I like diners, and the Empire Diner is definitely one to try if you like diner food. What I really liked with the menu, must be at least a hundred different entree's available. I tried the meat loaf today and it was excellent. They have a large display with cakes and pies (always a good start), and as others have... More

After reading all the other reviews I realize I don't have much else to offer. In agreement- the place is spotless, prices are fair, portions are generous and the wait staff was efficient and friendly. I am writing because the Empire is the absolute favorite of people I was with. They LOVE this place. On their behalf I am suggesting... More

Stopped here for dinner after a lesson and was pleasantly surprised I got broiled shrimp and he got rib and chicken combo Very nice portions and tasty too. Was a little disappointed in the chocolate cream pie but other than that we would come back.
