“Easy Dinner”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Went early evening on a Sunday and it was pretty much empty, but by the time we left it was getting busier (6 or so). Loved seeing all the pictures in the walls. We wanted to go to a local place and based on the proximity to our hotel and the rave reviews on here, we chose Galaxy Diner. It didn't disappoint. Hubby had the chicken fried steak & I had pulled pork (when it came with cole slaw on it, I freaked a bit, but it was really good!). Kids loved their meals as well and couldn't wait to go back and get a shake, but choosing which one out of 100 flavors was hard!

“Staff serves great smiles and great food”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We go to the Galaxy Diner at least once every trip to Flagstaff (once or twice per year). When we got to town August 4th, we went to another restaurant first - lesson learned. Always great food, reasonably priced. Haven't had the breakfast special yet, but I'm told it's very inexpensive. I highly recommend the Galaxy Diner. Nostalgic photos of the stars of days gone by; posters from Hank Williams' 1952 appearance in Corinth, MS, and a 1965 poster of the Supremes in Macon, Georgia.

“Good solid diner with live music”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Ate supper at Galaxy Diner 2 nights. Décor 50's/60's. As expected, the food was excellent at a reasonable price. Only drawback was that alcoholic beverages were not served. Service was fast and efficient. Large menu. Would (did) return for good value and excellent food.

“Terrible treatment of waiting customers”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

We gave our name to the hostess and was told it would be about a 15 min. wait for a table. After about a 10 min. wait, a group of French students, numbering about 20, were seated ahead of my husband and I. I should also note that there were three other couples ahead of us in line. We discussed the situation, waited another 5 minutes, and left. Very unprofessional service to potential customers! Cannot comment on the food since we didn't stick around to find out.

John G, Manager at Galaxy Diner, responded to this review, 29 July 2014
Hi Teresea, what day was it that you came in, so that I can look into this further? I can state that it was very likely the group of French tourists you saw walk past you was part of a tour group who have reservations up to months in advance and also restrict a portion of our restaurant causing a wait list. However, if you can provide me with a date that you came in, i'll be more than happy to look into this matter for you and get back to you. I do apologize for the bad experience you had though as, even when we have tour buses, we never wish to cause customers a long wait in order to be seated.
