While the food is really good, what impressed me the most was how clean the restaurant was--really outstanding. It's obvious the owners/managers care about this restaurant and its reputation. A solid choice-good value for the money, too.

Although the coneys are amazing, I was most surprised that they served an even more amazing breakfast! It's not known for breakfast and therefore not crowded. I love uncle Louis, but there's always a line out the door. Choose Coney Island for an amazing breakfast or lunch with great service.

Kept hearing about breakfast here so the wife and I stopped in to start off a mom and dad date day. Great food in the oldest continuous running restaurant in Duluth. One of the best values in town.

The restaurant has the feel of an old diner, they have great food and excellent service. I visit this place each morning on the way to work and pick up a breakfast sandwich. The service is always friendly, the food is always good. Whenever I have more time I stop for breakfast which is served until 3pm. I have had... More

This classic diner is a great location not only for their classic coney (as the name suggests) but especially for a great bacon-eggs-hashbrowns-toast breakfast. Coffee is excellent as well and above all, great service. You'll find few options for a diner breakfast that will stand up to Coney Island!

Our daughter told us about this place. They love to hunt out where the locals eat and they are usually the best. Well, this place hits the mark! The breakfasts are delicious and very inexpensive too. The eggs were done perfect, and the coffee delicious. It's fun to be around the locals too. The place is old but very clean... More

My last review of 'this' place I thought I was reviewing what is called the Deluxe Coney Island on First Street regarding coneys and Gryos. I no longer go to 'this' 'original' coney.island because of the way I was treated in 40 below weather. The OPEN SIGN was ON so I parked and went to the door. It was locked.... More

Good, maybe not quite Detroit's Lafayette or American but close! Great old-school diner vibe right downtown, fast friendly service.
