I love Thomas's Ham & Eggery Diner. The staff is very friendly and welcoming, even when faced with lines of hungry diners out the front door. The food is cooked to order and served on skillets--and it is very good. There is a wide selection of items on the menu, and the cost is very reasonable. Thomas' is one of... More

What a treat coming to the East coast and finding a great Diner. The Northwest doesn't have Diners like Thomas's. Nova Scotia, Lox ,Eggs, & Onions were fantastic.

My parents took me here ever since I was a kid. They have THE best ham and cheese omelettes. I haven't found a better one on LI.

Thomas's Ham and Eggery Diner is truly excellent. It is famous for cooking and serving breakfasts in a skillet on a wooden board and those are consistently outstanding. This visit we tried Eggs Benedict and Chili and those too were perfect. The Hollandaise sauce for the Eggs Benedict was so wonderful I wanted to lick out the pan and there... More

Great breakfast choices. Big Portions. Lot's of daily specials. Like an amped-up diner. Coffee cup is always filled, great people work there. I love the " banter" between the servers and the surly guys who cook the food. My # breakfast joint on Long Island. Ham steak and eggs w/ tons of great homefires served on a hot skillet.. for...

This has been a family favorite for many years. Each time we are in the neighborhood for breakfast or brunch we head to the Ham and Eggery. The employees are always friendly and right on point and the food is always good.

Well, let's begin with the food. We had breakfast and the food was hot and plentiful. The service was good and the waitress was on top of her game. The rather small diner was crowded and everyone seemed to be enjoying their dishes. This diner is known for serving certain dishes directly in the skillet - which is fun and... More

My wife and I had breakfast two of the three days we were staying nearby. Excellent food both times. Good value, large portions, and well prepared. Incredibly friendly staff; Gina might be the best waitress in history! This is a real diner with a limited but excellent menu as opposed to the over built, over decorated diners often found in...
