We went for Fathers' Day. Although it was mobbed, we only waited a couple of minutes for a booth. Our waiter greeted us like old friends, promptly brought us coffee, tea & juice, and took our order. We waited a short while and our order arrived. The omelets were all delicious (especially my Italian one with sausage, mozzarella & onion!)... More

It was great to be back at the Bright Star Diner. We had not been here in years. It was a favorite and weekly Sunday night dinner with family and friends. The food is good and the place's interior is pleasant. The server was friendly and food was served in a reasonable time. We will be back again.

Visiting the area and always happy to try a NY diner. This one looked good from the outside but take my word for it - stay far away! We were a group of 8 and had no trouble getting a table. Service seemed pretty attentive. But the food? Oh my. It. Was. Awful. Among the 8 of us, we had... More

Not welcomed when we walked in, but the waitress was a bit better. Felt like a place that retired mafia guys hang out. Food is fine and since we were on a road trip, it was better than a gas station breakfast.

Food is less than desirable. Ordered a Swiss omelette for breakfast this morning. Tasteless. Sent it back. Waitress took my plate, turned her back on me, and whispered something to the hostess. Hostess checked me out and didn't say two words to me. Sorry to say, I won't be back. Will much rather go to Ikaros Diner in New Windsor... More

For a Diner the prices are way to high. Portions are good but your typical diner. Look for another place to eat, nothing special here.

My wife and I ate at this diner on our way through the town. It was nicely decorated and clean. The staff were nice and helped us to choose a meal that met with our wishes. Be advised that salads are about $9- $10 and most dinners were around $15 - $20. If you substitute anything, there is an extra... More
