Everything we ate was delicious. Patty melt, greek salad, potato pancakes, eggs, disco fries, and more. Service was on point, food came out fast and hot. Very accommodating of a 19 month old and an infant. Will be back!

A great local diner! Delicious food prepared well with quality ingredients, friendly efficient service, generous portions comparable prices and a menu with so many tempting choices makes Great Neck diner a top rated diner. You can always find something that will delight you at any...time you dine there. This time it was a Sunday brunch and we had a wonderful time. So relaxing that I wished I had my Sunday Times with me🤣haha but seriously I was just hungry and I was not disappointed. In fact, I am never disappointed so that's why they deserve 5 🤩 stars! Happy Eating and I'll see you around the tables!More

Clean and friendly service. All the locals love it. Food is what you would expect from a diner, but better than Seven Seas and more reasonable.

... because I am certainly surprised at all the glowing reviews. Overall, food was slapped together carelessly. I ordered overpriced takeout chicken soup that turned out to be 95% salty broth. My friend's Reuben Sandwich was so chaotically assembled, he couldn't even pick it up....The last straw were the "banana pancakes," which were just tepid Aunt Jemimas with banana slices scattered on top.More

This is a very nice, comfortable place to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner with a a wide array of selections. While not gourmet, the food is tasty and cooked the way you want. It's a nice place to chat with friends and family.

Sort of a mix between a diner and a coffee shop, with good service and large selection. This management is doing a good job

Busy Saturday but 4 were seated right away. Service was okay but not like it used to be. Bride ordered burger(comes with Cole slaw & pickle). I ordered omelet ( comes with toast). Neither of these sides came with main dish, had to request it....Both dishes were served warm, lime they were sitting for a while( time was a problem, couldn't wait for food to be done properly). Also needless to say it's Great Neck so expect to pay higher than other diners. I'm in Great Neck every few weeks, I will travel beyond Great Neck to receive good food,prepared properly and at a reasonable price.More

Menu is extensive and difficult to navigate if in a time-crunch, otherwise, tons of choices, local foods, and minimal service. Pickle and cole slaw for the table top, but not sure what their specialty is. Take your chances at the lunch hour for a table,...but probable.More

This revitalization of the old Frederick's in Great Neck is a neighborhood gem with the absolutely best diner menu and unbelievable food! Burgers, fries and egg creams are absolutely classic. Soups must be homemade because they are really good, especially the mushroom barley. I don't...know how they do it but have eaten here a few times in the last year and every time the food seems to get better and better. Service is great and the Owners are always on premises to make sure things run smoothly. Easy make to the Great Neck train station too. Try it, you won't be disappointed!More

Located near the center of Great Neck, this restaurant offers general fare food with something for everyone. Although service was slow at first, once the server arrived all went well. The burger was done perfectly and looked great. My sandwich was good on fresh, tasty...bread. We both opted not to order the fries with our meals but coleslaw and pickles added nicely to our meals.More

Had a breakfast special before catching a train. Two eggs sunny side up, bacon - perfectly crisp - lovely home fries and plenty of coffee. Great service and a very sensible price. Hit the spot.
