Ate here for lunch and was better previous time. My dining companions both had crepes with fruit and they were very good. I had shrimp wrap and had to search for the shrimp. Very underwhelming. Not the friendliest place, but decent cheap food.

I really enjoyed this breakfast place. It's one of my favourites in Sayville because they have been in business for a very long time. The food is not fine dining but it's cheap and cheerful. Also, has a charm about the people working in the...More

"Modern Diner" is the name but the décor states other. Very relaxed 50's themed diner with all the same fixings as any other diner. Service is good and very genuine and the people who attend this diner are quite and sweet. The prices are extremely...More

It's been awhile since I went here. As teenagers it was the place to go, after movies or at the end of a date. Mrs. Gallo, dearly departed, was the best waitress back then. She always made us laugh.

I will start out by saying that the only meal I have ever eaten here was breakfast. It has been consistently good. Everything has always been prepared to order and fresh. Locals affectionately refer to it as "The Greasy Spoon". The decor is the 50's....More

Here is a diner where friendly loses its meaning. The diner is dirty looking, old and the furnishings dilapidated. Food was ok for breakfast but the service so poor that I wouldn't go back for any other meal. There are so many good restaurants in...More

Came in to the hostess with the most hostility- would not acknowledge my "how are you?" The staff looked tired and not overly friendly. I ordered a vegetarian omelet and had to pay a good price for a few veggies inside. It was good but...More

We have been going here for years. The food is very good, service is good. We sit at the same table just about every time we go there to eat. The family has owned the diner for over 50 years are very friendly.
