“KNM @ Drifters”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

There foods not bad, but the deep-fried foods are sometimes overdone, and their soda is watered down. They do have good coffee and a nice selection of tea. The pricing isn't bad, but sometimes it can take a while to get your waitress' attention.

“All-Around Excellent”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Such a cute restaurant with an appropriate "Bay Shore" theme. I always feel relaxed when I walk in. Such friendly gals, always suggesting something new and different on the menu, lots to choose from but never a "miss", and really reasonable prices. Enjoy!

“Too EXPENSIVE & Inconsistent”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

I have been to this establishment on several occasions. Sometimes the food quality is good, sometimes it's not. Feeling lucky & a little courageous, I went there this morning, sat down and ordered corned beef hash with eggs, toast and a cup of coffee. $10.54! Without Tip! OUTRAGEOUS. No wonder there were only two other people in the entire place during what should be a busy time. Customers attempting to support the local economy shouldn't be over charged and feel ripped off! Done and Done.

“Not fresh cooked.”
Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

Husband had the hot turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes. Turkey was lunchmeat. Gravy was packaged. I had the hot hamburger with Fries instead of mashed. Bread was stale. Hamburger was fine. Gravy was packaged. Fries were crisp. Did not bother taking leftovers. They do serve breakfast all day and although it was lunch time many were ordering breakfast. The breakfast portions were very large.
