Just went to south bay diner for breakfast and it was not very busy. We were a party of 5 and they did nothing to seat us. Others were seated that came after us (party of 7 and 4) after watching them being seated before us we got frustrated😁. The workers heard our frustration and said nothing or did nothing... More

I have been going to this diner over the years. Sometimes the food is okay...never is it great and other times its regrettable. The food that's served is highly inconsistent!

I hosted a party of about 20 people. It was an important occasion and I thank them for how efficiently and warmly they handled it. And the food was awesome (I had a corned beef Reuben - with great cole slaw on the side - yum!).

We've been here a number of times over the years, and when in Lindenhurst to visit friends, we always end up here at least once. This particular time, after a long bus trip from Boston, followed by a ride on LIRR, arriving many hours late, my first stop was here. As is normal, it was pretty crowded with late night... More

South Bay Diner wins Long Island Choice year after year for a reason. The ambiance is nicer than most diners and the food is excellent. Try the homemade corned beef hash it's delicious. It's a bit pricey, but in line with what most diners charge.
