This was the second time I've been at twice at this restaurant and each time it gets better and better.. The service is great and the food even better. The way the staff treats my children is priceless.. Recommend it to anybody for a fun time with or without children...

Whenever the husband and I get a hankering for something quick, affordable, and delicious we hit up the Galaxy Diner. With it's hours, very rarely do we want to go and they not be open. The staff is usually quite friendly and the food is always delicious!

I would love to bring kids to this place, they really stick to their theme. It also has a Fallout kind of feeling. Our drinks were great, but our lunch food was a little on the bland side, like the silver diner. I have NOT had their breakfast, though, and I've heard that's pretty good. I do like their location.

Just had lunch there while traveling back to Ohio. Huge variety of food choices. I had chicken salad fruit plate and husband had Blackened chicken wrap. Both were excellent. Fried pickles and fried Oreos were out of this world.

We visited for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon and had a short wait for 5 of us, but it was so worth it. The menu was full of tempting options and we had a mix of orders from breakfast foods to sandwiches to milkshakes at our table. All of the food was served quickly and correctly. Everyone commented...

My son recommended that we eat here when we were touring Carytown... good idea! The Galaxy Diner harkens back to the 50's and 60's with its decor. Lots of space and scifi references! I had a footlong and it was an actual foot long hot dog!

Casual dining at great prices. I always got the burgers and the fried brownie desert. Service is fantastic, as is the location.

Stopped by Galaxy Diner for a late night mean on a Friday night. The decor is traditional "diner" in the truest sense which lended a quirky atmosphere to the place. The diner was busy, but we were seated promptly and our orders were taken quickly. The menu has quite an assortment of choices - as is typical with diners -... More

If your looking for a "food joint" in carytown that isn't expensive.. This is it!! Food is typical diner style and they have a large menu to choose from. Biggest mimosa I've had on a Sunday for $3 that's for sure! Will definitely be going back to try lunch, because breakfast was delicious.. Perfect hangover food!
