Great, Typical NY Diner

This place is always full with local people which really says it all. Staff are friendly, food is really good value and their breakfast selection will set you up for the day. I like the fact that is is not set up for tourists but equally you are made very welcome.

We had breakfast there every morning we were in Manhattan. The food is good with fast and friendly service. Prices were good also. A bagel with a generous smear was around $4. One egg with potatoes, toast and coffee was 5.95. A big Belgian waffle was also around $6.

The Murray Hill Diner is a good choice for breakfast - located conveniently on Lexington Ave. in the Murray Hill district. The food selection, quality and quantity are all good. It can get busy, the service is efficient.

Great Prices, Great food. Delicious and savory french toast is a favorite with a pile of fresh strawberries. Wait staff very friendly and attentive. Old place but nostalgic which personally I appreciate. Salads are fresh and creative. Worth going and the prices will make you happy too.

we ate here 3 times . The philli cheesesteak was ok, not great, my wife had the turkey dinner and liked it a lot. As the diner was just round the corner from our hotel decided to give it a go for breakfast. This is where this diner really comes in to its own. Wife had the omelette which was... More

Our sister in law found this place near our hotel so we went here for breakfast. The food was good and plentiful as you would expect from an american breakfast place. There was a slight communication problem. I wanted to order a smaller portion so asked for one egg benedict and a side of fruit. I got full portions of... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
