I had a late dinner at the Galaxy with my husband and cousin when visiting NYC in September. Although there were other dining options on 9th Ave we choose the Galaxy because we all wanted to have different options which we knew a diner would offer. It's looking a little tired inside and the food is average but the service... More

Very reasonable place to visit for breakfast. We had just finished a boat trip and wanted to find a place that did all day breakfasts as we really fancied trying pancakes! We came across Galaxy diner and it did not disappoint!

Yes I know it's a diner but the food was still so average and bland it's disappointing. Expected good things from the open sandwiches but the meats were over cooked and bland and the sides really poor. The juice tasted like it was 70% corn starch and the "champagne" was as flat as the pancakes. Why my friend ordered eggs... More

Typical NYC diner food. Had a cheesesteak it was pretty good. Had the fries too!! The clientele at that time of day is worth the visit. My friends had breakfast food that was pretty typical. Won't go wrong going here, but won't miss much if you don't go!

We had breakfast at the Galaxy Diner during our recent stay in New York. So good we went back the next day as well. Food tasted fresh and delicious and the basic breakfast (two eggs, hash browns, toast, juice, and coffee for $5.99 was a very good price. Service was fast and the ambiance was just what you need in... More

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.
