Maybe we ordered wrong or just hit a bad day, but my husband & I were very disappointed with the food. The pancakes were nothing special, the ham was fatty and the food was lukewarm. I'm also sorry to say it needs a good cleaning. The table was next to the wall where all the condiments sit was sticky and... More

Oh my gosh, we love Dinah's for breakfast. Enough menu choices you could get something different everyday for weeks. You have to try the apple pancake. I had it 3 times in 2 weeks. It takes 15 minutes but it is worth it.

Large, very busy, fast turnover, somewhat loud (but not bothersome)... this place is your regular quick prepared / cheep eats place where you simply can't go wrong. Large menu of all the standards - every plate that passed our table looked fantastic. Breakfast fare is great - nothing fancy, but just well prepared and very good value. Never discovered if...

This place is a higher end greasy spoon and I mean that in the best way possible. It’s definitely a place for locals which I really like when I travel for business. I ordered the fried chicken and ribs combo which is enough food for two. Their fried chicken is quite good. It’s not crispy and there’s not much batter.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Doubletree hotel just across the street corner from this diner. It is a quaint, old fashion looking type of place. We stayed at the hotel for three days: Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We tried dinner at this restaurant on the first day, had great food (fried chicken dinner and fried chicken with waffles)... More

Service and food are consistently good, much better than chain diners yet with better pricing. There are tons of specials people on any budget can afford and an extremely diverse menu - there's definitely something for everyone here. We've been so many times we have had everything from breakfast foods to lunch and dinner, all of it consistently good.

Dinah's has been a staple of Westchester since 1959. It has a fantastic breakfast menu with lots of uncommon pancakes. I had the l/2 sandwich and soup combination. The soup of the day, navy bean was just like homemade and the l/2 tuna sandwich was delicious and very generous. They have a senior and kids menu. Service is friendly and... More

Used to be a great diner. I came here for the pancakes and the fried chicken. I visited for the first time in several years. The place was largely empty at dinner time, and the fried chicken didn't taste like it had been made with fresh oil. Maybe it's still good for breakfast, but I can't say.; Won't be back.

Dina's is a 90 mile round-trip for me, but I go every couple of months because they have such an intense menu that I just have to show them to friends. I totally blew the pictures by eating everything on the table. I ordered the fried chicken, a GERMAN PANCAKE and an Apple Pancake. Unless there's more than 3 of... More
