We had dinner here twice – a great variety of choices, excellent quality of food and very friendly staff. Beer and wine could be cheaper. In any case, we enjoyed our 2 visits here very much!

This is one of NYC's oldest and beat diners. I've been coming here with my family for over 30 years. Their food is always good and the service even better.

We went there for dinner to try a traditional American diner. Great places, waiters very friendly (can recommend Juan) and great food with generous portion sizes. Very good value for money.

This place did really good breakfast. Service was exceptional, and value for money you would get an OJ, coffee and breakfast for approx 10 dollars. The breakfast also came with homefries and toast. Though seeing the lobsters on the way in wasn't that pleasant.

My sales rep and I stopped here for a quick bite—the staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful with awesome recommendations. The food was great! And there is a parking lot for restaurant guests—a rare find in this area.
