Ive been coming here for years and their food is truly flavorful and good sized portions. It just never fails that the coffee always tastes so bland and watered down. I wouldnt be surprised if the coffee is reused. Its THAT bad. If they only improved their coffee, the place would be perfect!!

The best I've tasted ever and Ive tasted many. The service is always outstanding but I must say the coffee is baaaadddd as in awful. It takes away from the delicous breakfasts they have.Their coffee is either bitter or watered down. It doesnt have to be premium. Chockful O Nuts its great coffee but the coffee they serve tastes like... More

This morning around 11:30 a.m. I called this diner to place a breakfast order to be delivered to my home. Upon the arrival of this order I notice that two of the three breakfast plates ordered were incorrect, missing items. I called the diner to inform them. I was told the missing items would be delivered to me however it... More

This was a great diner at one time... The food is okay it used to be a lot better... The staff is average and that's being generous... Times change places change and this is a perfect example.... It's still a decent place to eat and I can't take that away from it , there really aren't many good Diners left... More

This diner has incredibly light and fluffy AND very tasty pancakes. I've tried them all over and Pelham Bay Diner is TOPS! I always enjoy their breakfast omelettes and service is always way above average. Good bang for your buck because the portions are plentiful. And yes....oh the pancakes...gotta have em.

Classic Diner, extensive menu and fantastic service. Breakfast 24/7 and plenty of parking. Our favorite meal is the Daisy Mae skillet with plenty of gravy.

This retsaurant has a limited menu as far as their selection of sandwiches if you don't want a big meal. What they do have is a bit expensive but the food is not bad. It is a clean restaurant and during 2 visits it was not crowded. There are better diners in the Bronx with more extensive menus.

I'm embarrassed to say I ate here w/o reading one review ( it was on the way & we were hungry) but from one foot in the door- I knew it was a bad decision. I really have to stop myself, turn around & leave whenever I see a diner empty @ 10am! The food was cold and tasteless, the... More

I decided to try a new menu item called a country fried steak skillet. If you are not familiar each one has a theme like Greek, Italian, even Bronx. It's basically a mix of eggs, hash browns and the themed ingredients. I had tried a few which were ok. Nothing major. This however was the worst thing ever!!! The second... More

Decided to have a brunch out and our past experience at the diner has always been pleasant so we decided to give it a try. A simple dish of french toast, eggs and bacon. The french could not have been better. I asked for soft scrambled, my daughter asked for well done scrambled, both came as requested and perfect with... More
