We go here often. Wait staff is wonderful. Typical diner meals. Very large portions. Usually crowded. Clean & comfortable. No negatives.

After traveling all day, read reviews on where to eat and decided on the Lake Grove Diner, We both ordered the chicken house salad, and were very surprised at the amount of chicken and salad we received, we could have split one salad. Although,we thought a little pricey ( from another area, not a big city}, the diner was pretty... More

Loved it so much I ate there twice for my visit home with family. Service was good and friendly. Food was good. Huge portions. You'll never eat all the fries that come with your meal. Only beef was pasta was a little soggy (my son's dinner). Will go back again and again.

I love Lake Grove Diner. The quality of the food is significantly better then the other ones on long Island. The food is fresher and better prepared. Their salads are more decadent. It is one of the few places that I actually trust their Goat cheese. In fact their Goat Cheese and Berry salad is Devine and a little different... More

We've been here before. Brought our grandchildren today after a movie. They like the pancakes here. They also provide gluten free pancakes. Generally food is good, service is good - a bit pricier than other diners.

Always a great meal! I loved the shrimp Santorini. Very centrally located to lake grove, stony brook, and centereach. Parking can be tricky when too crowded, but worth it.

This is one of the finest, largest diners in the area. It is conveniently located on Nesconset Highway in Lake Grove. There are large, spacious sections and the usual casual countertop dining areas. The staff is experienced and helpful. The menu is vast! Portions are large and food is cooked to order so there may be a delay, esp at... More
