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.

Our group ordered three types of omelets. The California omelet was served with turkey that had certainty gone bad. Spit out immediately it was so bad. The other omelets were fine. The reat of the food was fine. The blueberry muffin was especially tasty. Service was with an attitude; even when the bad food was pointed out, it was met... More

Both times we got exactly what we expected; its not haute cuisine but it was good solid food served quickly and efficiently by the pleasant staff. Everything was tasty and... More

Some several years ago, I had an office near this place and went there often. I finally gave up when the food "went downhill" as badly as the terrible service. A few weeks ago, we tried it again ... service was marginally better but the food? Not at all remarkable and you can do far better for less coin ...... More
