Many breakfast specials at moderate prices. Service was very attentive even though the place was very busy. It is very popular with the locals and was recommended by our hotel. There were too many choices on the menu for all of us to try everything we wanted. It is a very large diner, big parking lot. Dinner menu looked good... More

Went with family last week and it was good. Service was excellent but food just average. This is an old place but still pretty good. Better for breakfast

Use to be a regular but there have been a lot of issues over the years, many of which keep happening. I go here when I am at last choice and want something other than a burger or the like. No idea why the cooks cannot read the slip when it says no onions it means do not put them... More

Stopped in with colleagues in early morning for breakfast before heading back into work. There was one waitress that was friendly enough. She kept our coffees filled. It is like any other NY Diner you come across. Our food was okay, the potatoes were not hot, barely room temp. Also, one of my colleagues found a hair in his omelette.... More

The Bethlehem Diner served us a two-star food but gave us four-star service. Like many diner divers, we ordered breakfast. My wife's waffle was a bit rubbery in texture. My omelet was overcooked. The home-fries were uninspired and under seasoned. The coffee was reasonably good, but the breakfast meats were lackluster. I'm not sure the Denny's wouldn't have been a... More

Nice find near our hotel. For a simple meal the gyro pita with cole slaw and fries was tasty goodness. For dessert, chocolate ice cream with whip cream and chocolate syrup. Mmm good. Left totally satisfied and ready to relax. Go, try it out.

My friend needed to go to CVS which was nearby. We decided to have dinner here. It was conveniently just off Airport Road right near Route US 22. The hostess greeted and seated us promptly in a very comfortable booth. Our beverage orders were taken as soon as we got settled. We found several tempting items on the extensive menu... More

The choice was between Denny's or the Bethlehem Diner in the same parking lot. The diner had more cars in the lot so that influenced our choice. Should have went to Denny's. We were seated immediately, service was very good. Didn't appreciate the Greek owners speaking Greek while in the middle of the dining room or at the register. Who... More

What more could you ask for from a diner? It's filled with locals and the elderly, only adding to it's charm. Located in the same parking lot as Denny's, this was clearly the right choice. The food came out lightning fast, was warm and scrumptious, all for a very reasonable price. One downside is that the coffee was "weak" for... More
