My daughter and I love Empire Diner. It has a wonderful family atmosphere and the food is terrific! We usually visit the diner on a Weekday afternoon or Saturday after sleeping in. 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.

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.
