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!

No the food is not all healthy but who cares? It is what it is. There are salads and veggie choices on the menu all very good but you must have the fried Oreos for a true Galaxy experience. Our kids love it and the prices are reasonable so the whole family is happy. I hope this diner is here... More

Every time we go to Galaxy Diner I'm reminded of how good simply food can be. Not that they are simple, but sometimes it is so easy for a restaurant to ruin a salad or sandwich. NOT at Galaxy. And I love their space chips!

The diner is regular diner fare - however, hamburger was huge! Fries are average. Also ordered a breakfast, omelet - 3 eggs but it seemed small however, filled with ingredients! Off Careytown drag, a safe bet for simple lunch fare. Price range in $10 area.

I am rating this place 5 stars on food because the expectation is diner food, not fine cuisine, and they have done VERY well every time I have come here. The reason I go with 4 OVERALL is because of service and cleanliness. Service is kind of a hit or miss, you either have a waitress who seems out of... More
