The choices on the breakfast menu cannot be beaten. The home made corned beef hash is outstanding as are the omelettes and pancakes. Just delicious.

Was looking forward to visiting this "landmark" old-fashioned diner which had been picked as brunch spot for a family gathering. The food was okay, but didn't hold up to that vintage, homey excellence one has come to expect from such places. Would try somewhere else next time.

Stopped in for lunch. Quickly seated. Great waitress. Just what a diner service experience should be. Food came quick. Super good pastrami meat and excellent rye bread. Homemade coleslaw was very surprising not the usual mush. And of course fresh cold crunchy pickles on the side. Only in New York! A bit pricey but this is NY state. Would be... More

My wife and I stopped for breakfast this morning. Very clean, our server was very nice, but never called me honey or sugar which signifies a diner. The homemade hash is very good however is served on a white plate with white eggs covering it. No fruit garnish just boring white and plan. Remember Gateway, customers first eat with their... More

Great diner atmosphere. The salad that I had was large, but very average. The vinaigrette tasteless. My husband's sandwich and fries were good. Good prices.

Good diner. Good food. A little expensive but it's all worth it. I'd avoid it early Saturday morning and late Friday night as the bar crowd is here a lot and can get rowdy..

We had lunch at the diner recently and the food was really good. First of all the waitress couldn't have been nicer. The many selections offer something for everyone, but they're also very accommodating if you want to change an item on the menu. We ordered turkey, pot roast, and liver with onions. Everyone was extremely satisfied and the price... More
