We had the privilege of staying around the corner from this diner. The waiter can remember your preference of beverage so upon walking in each morning my tea and my husband's coffee would be on our table within seconds. My husband become known as the "egg on a plate man" after being asked on Day 1 how he would like... More

What you would expect from a NY Diner. Good breakfast selection, friendly and helpful staff with good service. No frills, no fuss, just good food and service with a local atmosphere.

We loved this diner so much that we came back again. After a terrific breakfast one morning, we just had to come back. The service was quick, the prices were reasonable, and the food was great. I wish we had this diner in our hometown! The egg sandwich was tasty, as was the pancakes, omlette and over easy eggs.

Ate brunch here on a Sunday before a heading of shopping, definitely sets you up for the day. Lovely pancakes with banana, and a jug of maple syrup on the side. Portion sizes very large. Place was very busy, pleasant service. Would most certainly recommend for breakfast/brunch, can't comment on meals at other times of the day.

Three years ago, a colleague and I stayed at the Affinia Dumont and found this Diner for Breakfast. I loved it! A couple of weeks ago, I was back in New York with my wife and tried to find the diner again. I did not know the name or exact location, so I dropped into the hotel and asked the... More

We ate breakfast at MHD on a Saturday, mid morning. Guess I shouldn't be surprised that this relatively small diner was crowded. Because my husband and I are larger, we asked to move to a table, which didn't seem to please the manager as he begrudgingly did so. Our cute local waitress welcomed us to "Merry" Hill Diner, which brought... More

I stopped in for a day-old pastrami sandwich with Gulden's mustard (not how they billed it on the menu, of course). Seriously disappointing, because I recall eating a delicious pastrami sandwich here a few years ago, but this one was almost like eating beef jerky. The counter, where they'll ask you to sit if you come in solo (even if... More

We popped in here for brunch and were really happy with the overall experience We were seated straight away in this old style feel diner and from there to the point of leaving our server was perfectly attentive without managing to be annoying. We both got omelettes which were cooked just right with quality ingredients. Our bill was easily the... More
