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.

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.

My family has eaten at Empire for the last 15+ years. The diner was recently remodeled and looks great. The food is always plentiful, great tasting and the menu choices are endless. 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
