I have read a few of the reviews, and felt compels to add a voice of reason. The service at the Queen is almost always great. The ladies waitressing work hard, and are accurate and personable (I admit there is one lady who isn't quite as nice, but I might have consistently caught her on a bad day.) The food is good and in the years we have gone there, I only had 2 issues, which were very quickly addressed to my satisfaction. On to the prices. Yes, they have increased. What hasn't? Food at the grocery store has wages have, and they must cover these and other increases. Be reasonable, folks. Show me a place that has not increased their prices, and I will meet you there for a meal. The prices are still within the appropriate range, so if you prefer a cheaper meal, go to the arches or some other place, but you will not have the enjoyment of a good meal.

When I think of a diner, the Glenville Diner is what I picture. A standalone building, cash register as soon as you walk in, a counter and lots of seating. The menu covers every thing from breakfast to Steak dinners and everything in between. I've been to better diners then the Glenville Queen but I've been to FAR worse as well. It's your typical diner. We had really great service for a large group (9 people). The food came out as ordered and pretty quickly. The prices were pretty decent too. What you don't get is, wow, this might be the best meal I've ever eaten, and I don't expect that from a diner. What you do get is, wow, that was a really good grilled cheese, or BLT or Mozz Sticks or ceasar salad etc etc etc. Diners as a whole so everything well, but not known for doing anything great, this place is no exception. So, for a typical diner experience, which seems to be hard to find once you venture north or west of Albany, I highly recommend this place. They are good at what they do.

We ordered the blueberry and peach stuffed French toast and the Southwest breakfast wrap with homemade fries. Both dishes were equally delicious. The service was great with particular attention to customer service. Why stop here, you ask. Well, they have their own bakery on premises and they are notable for the different cheesecake. The dinner itself is unremarkable but very traditional in style. Good place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Stop by sometime for a real treat.

Ordered a cup of New England Clam chowder. Ice cold and way too salty. Ordered the French Dip with fries. Again, served cold, overcooked, lifeless fries, au jus was even cold. A forkful of coleslaw and a limp pickle. Disgusting mess. Waitress was rude and insensitive. Do not waste your time and money eating at this overpriced, careless and inhospitable "Diner."

Good old fashioned comfort food.You'll never leave hungry as every meal comes with many different sides to choose from. I personally love the homemade soups.You'll really enjoy the authentic Greek items on the menu.

Excellent food. Had the Turkey club sandwich which came with fries and cole slaw. Turkey homemade and not deli Turkey. Lettuce was fresh leaf lettuce and not iceberg. Bacon was crisp and not greasy. The sandwich tasted great. Also had the chicken vegetable soup and that was excellent. Prices reasonable. Meal was great. Dinners include 3 sides (potato salad vegetable or soup) one of few places you can get a prime rib dinner (when they have it) with 3 sides for $28- that’s about what it would cost me if I bought the ingredients and it cooked myself.

Place was clean and service was quick. Food was good, but nothing special. I had grilled cheese & fries, my husband had a cheeseburger & fries and my kids had grilled cheese & fries and chicken tenders and fries. A little expensive for what we ordered.

Ate dinner here with two friends a few nights ago and its hard to say enough good things about the Glennville Queen Diner. For one the food was excellent and the portions generous. I had a pork cutlet and mushrooms. The cutlets were tender and the sauce tasty. The entre comes with three sides, I had a salad (counts as two sides) and pickled beets. The salad was ok, the beets very good. My friends were equally pleased with their choices. But what made our experience great plus was the service. One of my friends has mobility issues. Without being asked, the person seating us made a special effort to find a booth with enough room where my friend would be comfortable. The server too was great, friendly and professional and prompt, and also patient as this was a get-together for folk who hadn't seen each other for a while and we spent a lot of time and were not in any sense rushed or pushed. The general atmosphere is fine for what it is and what it identifies itself as, a diner. Prices were fair. We asked the server if we could split a dessert three ways. No problem and the portion was big enough so that we each has a nice dessert (baklava).

Horrible food and customer service by management. We had 2 different orders of pancakes and when they came out they were completely different. The child's pancakes came out okay while the adult pancakes came cold ,overcooked and rough. We asked for them to be taken off the bill and the manager (Tom) refused. He stated that all their food is cooked the same and served hot. He did offer to make new ones but at this point he basically called us liars and we wanted to leave. Congrats Tom, you just alienated a family of people who will never visit here again and never recommend it to anyone... If you want a great meal and service I suggest Lily's Cafe

Always clean and delicious dinner food. Not much to choose from in the town of Glenville so the dinner is very important part of the community. I eat there several times a year and always enjoy the service and food.

Ordered. a patty melt with sweet potato fries and cole slaw. Fries and sandwich reeked of whatever grease they cooked it in. Funky taste and just Inedible! Not wanting to make a. fuss, we headed up to pay our full bill. Out of courtesy when asked how it was I told cashier that it had a funky taste and I couldn’t even eat it. I showed him my uneaten meal. He got very defensive said they just changed the oil that morning. Well it tasted awful and I quietly told him no one should have to eat that. He got snotty and smirked and said “well I was going to take it off your bill but not now after what you said” I didn’t expect or even ask for him to remove it! What a total jerk! So he charged full price with a smirk! We went somewhere else to eat lunch. I guess he really needed the $18 so badly! I will never go there again and neither will my other 16 relatives who live nearby.

I grew up in the Glenville area and moved away 45 yr ago. My mother used to come with her friends for lunch after my dad passed and she always spoke well of the place. This was my first visit to the Glenville Queen and I was not disappointed. From the greeting my wife and I got from Lydia and her attentiveness and wonderful personality to the quality of the food, we were extremely pleased. We had been to another old family favorite in Schenectady and were rather disappointed. It's nice to see a family owned restaurant that still takes care of their customers like this. We highly recommend a visit to the Glenville Queen.

I have been coming to this diner for many years now. The quality, the service, and the constant bustle never changes; even after the pandemic. This diner is always well staffed, and the service is pleasant, efficient, and leaves nothing to be desired. Going out should be a pleasant, enjoyable experience, and it always is a Glenville Queen Diner.

When I was looking for a location for a small class reunion and I happened to eat at the Glenville Queen after a football game. I discovered that they had a great banquet room. Christine was very prompt to contact me and we negotiated my needs. The reunion was a success, the atmosphere, service and food were great!! Highly recommend.

Ate here on and off for a month while my refrigerator was being fixed. Breakfast with those great home fries was terrific. Loved the grilled cheese special. Loved the turkey dinner and the fried haddock. But my favorite was the Seafood Bisque. Absolutely wonderful. The refrigerator is finally fixed, but we're coming back for those specials anyway. Thanks!!
