“local diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

One of the two options for a diner in Bayside that I recommend. Best option if you are traveling and want to get a quick bite and head back on the highway.

“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

When they reopened after a long renovation there was alot of hype amongst the community. I went with my mom to see for ourselves. The food was average small portions and quite expensive for chicken salad. Nice atmosphere and Very popular with the locals.

“Good Ol' NY Diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Since the Goldstar Diner in Bayside closed this Diner has become a new favorite. It is conveniently located, clean and a guaranteed good place for any good old diner meal!

“Great diner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

5 days ago after a 5 hr drive we stumbled on this diner. They treated us kindly. We had lunch here today..Great! Lentil soup was outstanding. I had grilled chicken on pita. Was very tasty. Worth a try.

“Best diner in Queens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This reincarnation of the Bayside Diner is better than the previous. The food and service is great. Had some omelette's that were really great! Can't wait to try out other items on the extensive menu. It's amazing how a number of diners around this part of Queens have closed or are now providing low quality fare. The Bayside Diner outshines any remaining diners.

The only annoying thing was the valet parking. Why is it necessary when there were plenty of empty spots around the lot or even on the side streets?
