Court Square Diner has been serving the Long Island City area since 1946. Since then it has only had three ownerships. The current owners, Steve and Nick have been in operation since 1991. In 2009, the Court Square Diner was renovated with an all new retro look.

The delivery service is 24 hours a day seven days a week. All the baking for the diner is done on the premises. A secret of the success for the Court Square Diner is that our chef changes the special of the day daily, from soups and vegetables to the main dishes.

The Court Square Diner loves to give back to the community. We believe that by helping the community it will make the Long Island City area more desirable for people to visit and live. As, seen below this is one of many donations that we give to help the community.

“In 2011, the first year of the festival, the Court Square diner gave us the biggest donation… the reason that it was explained to me; when this area was bleak the artists were the best supporters of the diner.”

— Richard Mazda, LIC Arts Open Executive Director.

Planning an event?

Surprise your guests with food that’s sure to please with catering provided by Court Square Diner. It’s the perfect choice for a number of occasions.

I am kind of obsessed with Court Square Diner, everything I’ve had was just so good! I cannot believe they have such a low overall rating. They serve fast, homemade food. Burgers, wraps, omelettes, pancakes, booze, you name it they’ve got it.

Being on holiday, we found this diner by occasion looking for other restaurants and the subway. This diner is located next to the subway and a ten minutes walk away from the Hilton Garden-Inn where we stayed. The prices are comparatively cheap to other restaurants in Queens and for sure Manhattan.

They are the best Diner/Restaurant around!  As other reviews point out, the menu is endless! We usually have breakfast & lunch delivered, but we have eaten at the restaurant as well. Staff was great. (I do have to mention that the Italian chicken plates are not the best though). But they are very generous with their portions, sides & condiments.

I’m going to this diner for the last 14 years now, each time I’m “home away from home”. In this category of “diners” , defo one of my favourites! (and trust me, I’ve been around). As far as the interior is concerned, you can not get any closer to the “diner experience” as this one. Staff very polite, fast well organised service.
