i wanted to come back here again for my birthday, but this time i ordered the food to pick it up. the person on the other end of line was courteous, listened to my order. i ordered 2 of the surf & turf combo, it...comes with a baked potato, and broccoli, 12 oz sirlion steak and one lobster tail, and cheese cake. i wanted the steaks well done. i ordered my son a bacon cheeseburger deluxe, his hamburger, also well done. my daughter and i picked up the order, came back home, the plating was delicious to look at. the cheese cake was a large slice. the lobster tail was good not gummy, the broccoli was good also, had some crunch to it, the steak, it was tough, it was not easy to cut into also. it tasted good, but for me it was too well done. my daughter said the same thing also to me. my son's burger deluxe he told me it was good, but too much lettuce they gave him. the cheese cake was OMG so good. light, fluffy, creamy, you can taste the cream cheese. overall, it's still a good restaurant to dine, but next time i'm going to have my steak medium well done.More

Sunday brunch... we decided to go to this place for an American brunch.like most of the 'diners' the portions were hudge. Very crowd. Mostly families. A quick service. Everything was 'diner' For my opinion the coffees has to be better, the cakes not so sweet...and the meals like omelettes cooked with a bit few oil or margarine. l want to inform you that l didn't expect l'd have such a good pastrami. As it is a clasique we can't think to change. So we have to love it as it is.More

This Diner has a nice and big parking area, specially for weekends it’s gets busy but not difficult to find parking just I suggest do not be late other wise even parking gets full because everybody comes here for a good food. So easy to...walk inside or enter with the wheelchair. Hosted shows you your table, which is good. Windows are huge and make inside so nicely bright and open. So inside is not dark. Food is very good, service is nice and fast, tables and booths are big enough for everybody, and clean. Place has a few TVs around you or your kids can watch news or TV shows, or you can sit at the bar and have your breakfast. Prices are very reasonable not expensive, not sure if they have WiFi you can ask.More

so my daughter and i wanted was trying to eat at IHOP for brunch at pelham manor, this restaurant was full of waiting customers, so we took a cab to allerton ave to another IHOP that restaurant was packed also, so my daughter decided to...eat at a diner, she googled a diner that wasn't far from where we at. so we walked there. we saw the diner, outside from the side of the restaurant looked small, but when you turn the corner, there it was, the front restaurant. we walked inside the restaurant, it had people waiting also at the lobby, so we checked ourselves to get a table, the host said it would be couple of minutes. we had a booth, the restaurant was nice, the deco was colorful, bright, cheery, clean place, reminded us of a diner i used to take my children to in rockaway blvd in ozone park. the waitress came we ordered the hungry man breakfast. it consists of two pancakes, eggs, french toast, and your choice of three meats. bacon, sausage, sliced ham, turkey bacon, canadian bacon. the food was sooo good. the eggs were fluffy, the pancakes fluffy, the french toast was delicious. the bacon crispy, not burnt, the sausage was good, the slices of ham, delish. the waitress was attentive, the staff was friendly, even the owner was around making sure the restaurant was running smoothly. go to this restaurant, you will love the food.More

Ate breakfast here two days in a row. Food was EXCELLENT, both times. Knocked off a star because service was not great but not terrible either, be prepared to ask for drink refills and condiments, they won't be offered.

Needed breakfast before hitting the New York botanical gardens. Stopped here because it had offstreet parking. So glad we did. Service was friendly and fast. The food was great. Party of four. Two had an omelette. One had eggs and corn beef hash. One has...Caesar salad and soup. All delicious. We don't live in the area but boy if we did, we would be there every week for breakfast. Plus I think They have a comedy show in there on Sunday nights. Plus on Friday and Saturday it's open 24 hours a day. And check out the bathrooms where the ceilings change colors.More

Our group of 5 stopped here for breakfast while staying in the area. It was Father's Day, so there was about a 20 min wait; probably not unusual for a busy diner. The place was clean and staff was friendly. All of the breakfast meals...we got were very good: bacon, home fries (thin sliced with onion and pepper...delish), waffles, omelets, sausages (the pork was better than the beef) and even a black and white cookie! They ran out of English muffins so we could not get Eggs Benedict. The menu was very varied and everything that came past us looked good too! Total for 5 meals with drinks was about 85.00...a little high priced but likely par for the area.More

Late one Fri evening after commuting in Hellified traffic and to tired to cook; my boyfriend and I were looking for a place to dine While out in The northeast section of the Bronx. It was 10 pm and everything was fast food take out...but I remembered a nice diner on Boston Post Road at Gunhill Ave; Royal Coach Diner. The place was immaculately clean and service was 5 star! I had bbq ribs and 1/2 chicken, mashed potatoes with corn on the cob. Chicken was finger licking , ribs a little dry but delicious. Huge servings. My boyfriend had the lamb shank; also tender and delicious. He had 1 glass of Zinfandel to my 2 glasses of Baileys ( that was my back-in-the-day) drink and I guess I was feeling nostalgic . Late nights they automatically service charge the tip but the service was better than some 5 star restaurants I've eaten at!!! And I gladly added additional onto what was suggested. It's right off the I95 and Hutchinson River Parkway app 10 min drive. Well lit parking lot and security. Well worth the driveMore

This was my first visit to the Royal Coach Diner, and I would recommend going back. The food was done in a timely manner, it tasted good and the staff was very attentive. There were MORE THAN enough options to choose from on the menu,...and the only downside is having to pick just one option :-) Royal Coach-- keep up the good work!More
