OK, so the stars are painted on the ceiling but it is straight forward food and drink. Worth a punt.

I've only eaten here with family for breakfast because it's near the Skyline Hotel where we stay and is dependable. The neighborhood, family-owned restaurants are usually solid and reliable if not outstanding and can be depended on to provide a wide selection of the things you like to eat in the morning as you start out to move around the...

This is your classic diner serving everything from bagels to steak and everything in between. Huge menu variety. Food was decent and reasonably priced. Great option when no one can agree on what they want or you want breakfast in the middle of the afternoon.

We walked by the Galaxy multiple times a day. We did lunch there and found the food pretty good. The menu was quite diverse, something for most every taste. I would repeat this eatery.

Had to eat here in a pinch cause everything else was packed and we wanted to sit outside. I dont know why it was so hard to bring us our wine but it took 10 minutes. The food was typical diner food. Nothing fancy and it wasnt bad. I would say to find some place else in NYC cause there... More

Nothing bad about this place but nothing good to say as well! In NY there is so much good restaurant that you should not waist time on an average restaurant! Beer selection is poor and the staff didn't seems to know the difference of a blond beer and an amber! This area is full of good restaurant so don't waste... More

It was hard finding a place to eat that wasn't overcrowded but we came across the Galaxy Diner and had a very good relaxing dinner and the food was just right.

The Galaxy "Diner" at 9th and 46th in Manhattan -- just say NO. I've been coming to NYC for nearly 50 years . . . diners are one of my favorite eateries in NYC. Rarely will you go wrong at a diner! Well, the Galaxy is that "rare" selection. Avoid it. Who can't make a fresh corn muffin in NYC?... More

Went in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Service was good, prices reasonable and massive choice on menu. Wife had the BBQ wrap which was really tasty and I had the Turkey burger which was big and came with fries. Overall a clean, great wee diner

Met friends outside for breakfast. The omelets were good. The coffee fresh. The toast a little cold but it's hard to keep toast hot. The waiter was nice. Overall good. Nothing outstanding. It was plain diner breakfast.
