We eat here regularly. We had their food take-out many times as well. The service is good, the menu varied and it's generally a good value. Two of my favorites are the Open Face Turkey Sandwich Platter (made with real sliced turkey, order extra gravy) and the Chicken Shish-Ka-Bob Special... read more

A nice little diner. Great food. Friendly waitresses. I also found out that you could bring your own wine to drink with your meal. 2 thumbs up for that. Lol!! Another really good restaurant deserving of a visit.

Well this visit was ok. Food was delicious. Service wasn't bad, but she could have been a little more attentive instead of standing behind the counter talking to other Co workers when her tables needed things. I shouldn't of had to walk to the counter and ask for extra napkins she should have checked to see if we needed anything.... More

Ordered an authentic chicken cheesesteak w/sweet potato fries. Yummy. I forgot to ask them to add mayo before but, once I requested it after and fixed it to my liking, I was sa-tis-fied :-D Oh, and the strawberry cheesecake that I ordered for dessert was better than good. I give it 2 thumbs up and will visit them whenever I'm... More

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
