If there is any criticism to be leveled at this otherwise delightful culinary gem, it would be that they only accept cash. Credit card points notwithstanding, the breakfast and lunch offerings here rival any other Nassau or Suffolk County restaurant my wife and I have experienced. Yes, dear reader, it's THAT good! On previous occasions we were seated toward the... More

This diner has been around for a lifetime. It's family owned and operated, was featured in a TV renovation, and since then has been even nicer than before. The service is also much friendlier these days than I remember (if I'm being honest my first time there wasn't the best and I was underwhelmed). It's a village gem, worth a... More

Love, love their breakfasts. They are flexible. If you want only 1 pancake, you got it. They always give me a piece of cake or biscuit on the house.

I went on a holiday weekend (Sunday) and this railroad car diner was very busy (Yes they do take reservations). The theater down the street just let out and it seems everyone was heading over to this diner. My group had 5 people and we didn't wait long for a table. We ordered beverages and one member ordered a chocolate... More

This understated and very homey dinner has been a staple in our community for years. It is great for breakfast and lunch. They even serve beer now. Something new. They have a back outdoor area which is fun in the summer. Good food ..... nice people ...... great breakfast and lunch. No frills.

Tim's Shipwreck Diner is THE place for breakfast if you want to enjoy the vibe of Northport waking up in the morning! There is a great hometown cozy feel about the place and the Staff (or Crew) are extremely friendly. The food is excellent, hearty servings and top quality! Great coffee that the Crew keeps your mugs full! Full menu... More

This place was just SO MUCH FUN that I can't wait to go back! You walk into a "very diner like setting" and it's packed with people talking, laughing, telling stories, etc... It's clearly a "local spot" and obviously loved by all. One of their claim to fames is that they were on TV for "Restaurant Makeover." There is a... More

We recently had breakfast here with our two small children. Food was really delicious and they could not have been more accommodating or nicer to the kids who had so much fun and more importantly, ate every bite!!
