We were hungry so we stopped at the first place we could see we went in with high hopes as it was packed. We waited but no one came to show us to our table so we sat down ourselves. I ordered a bagel which was fine. The pancakes weren't very nice at all. Out food came quick enough but... More

My wife and I were not very familiar with this area, but while exploring, came across this diner. Seemed ok at first. We ordered coffee, an omellet and yogurt/granola. The coffees came, and well, that was it. After about 30 minutes, a table of 6 was seated and served before us. I was very annoyed, because it was just an... More

This is MUCH better than ‘excellent’ – you really must add this little gem to your 'must visit' list when you are in Brooklyn Heights. There is nothing too much trouble for the management and staff at Happy Days. They are all extremely friendly, particularly the waiters Rueben, Lorenzo, Jean and Tony, as are the regular New Yorker customers. We... More

It's a diner. There's nothing special about this diner, other than it's open when you want it to be. Not too many places too eat 24/7 in this neighborhood, so it's a bit of a magnet for everyone in the neighborhood after hours. Food was decent, service quick enough, and the place seemed as clean as it could be, given... More

On this trip I was looking for diner food, breakfast and dinner. They are normally good value, both for the food and the entertainment, and this was no exception. I visited for dinner and, a couple of days later, for breakfast. The corned beef hash was excellent. Good food, cheap, and quick. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Ok food but busy more because of its prime real estate than the food options. Waffles are really good but coffee is awful and they leave out the little metal milk containers out so long the milk goes bad. Multiple times the milk was sour. So gross.

It was a cold windy afternoon when we stumbled upon Happy Days Diner. Friendly staff with great service. Very tasty, hot, comfort food that was served quickly. Prices are excellent too for both the quality and service. Would definitely recommend and will visit again if in the area.

My sister and I were tired and hungry from a cross-country flight on our first night in New York. This was a couple of blocks from where we were staying and had a retro charm that drew us in. We both got omelettes. The food was tasty - average to most diners - the service was friendly and fast, and... More

The more you go the better it gets. This is a local favourite with a very regular crowd. Your first visit may be in personal but your second visit will be very different. The food is typical diner and no different from anywhere else. But it has a certain charm making it a favourite with locals.

Dropped in by chance after visiting Brooklyn Heights to see the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. Glad that we stumbled on this little gem, what we as Brits would consider a true American Diner. The waiter was cheerful and happy to accommodate Brits unusual requests and the food was good at a reasonable price. We visited on... More
