Great vibe and food

Had blackened chicken wrap and everything was very fresh. Good fries and the cucumber salad and fried pickles were outstanding.

Eating out, it is so hard to find good vegetarian options. However, the Galaxy Diner offered plenty of options including a veggie dog! I opted for a falafel wrap and it was fantastic!

Diner food with a bad sci-fi theme. One of the few places in Carytown open past midnight (rolls eyes), so a great place to go if you're in theater and need food after rehearsal. Get the fried pickle...you know you want to...

I discovered this place through word-of-mouth while studying for a year in Richmond. Being there seems like to travel back to the 60s! The atmosphere is very cool, the staff nice and they offer the biggest hot-dogs I have ever had in my life! If you're lucky enough to still have an appetite for a dessert afterwards, their milkshakes are... More

Walking into The Galaxy Diner, I had high hopes. The decor is diner meets outer space ambiance. Chrome and leather with interesting light fixtures and art in the Trendy Carytown area of Richmond. That's where my hope ended. The manager pointed to a table where we could sit but there was spilled water(?) All over the floor just in front... More

This is a fun place with a lot of young collage age people. Tried this place for the first time with friends. Food was good and not over priced. Good selection of different things for everyone. Breakfast was available even late. The only thing I was a little disappointed with was the Chipwich dessert. Not that it was not good.... More

For some reason, after being seated the wait for the food was ridiculously long. Could have been an issue just that day. The waitress was ok but definitely enjoyed the food.

We visited this diner for my 23 year old nephew for his birthday - it is one of his favorites! It has a great selection of breakfast and lunch options - your traditional diner fare, except with cool names. My husband had the Nuclear Waste Dog (see photo). It is all beef and HUGE! He said it was pretty tasty.... More

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!
