I was in the Broadway Lights Diner in Kingston, NY on 1/10/2017 with the patron who ordered ONE cheeseburger deluxe (with gravy for the fries) to go. Your cashier that evening rang us up and TOLD US the total came to $15.78 That price sounded insane for a diner. When we asked her if she was correct for the price... More

This was one of our "go to" lunch spots for years until the prices sky rocketed for no real reason. Nearly $16 for a burger and fries?! Maybe it's due to new ownership? Not sure, but the quality of the food neither increased or worsened, so we decided to call it quits. It's a real shame too, as the decor... More

This diner is OK when you need to eat. I think it's over priced and food is nothing special. They do have a nice staff and food was hot.

Clean, friendly and serving good diner food. The menu is fairly extensive and nicely prepared. Their salads in particular (unusual for a diner) are served using quality vegetables and proteins of your choice. The menu choices range from your regular diner menu (breakfast, lunch, dinner) with cuisines from Italy, Mexico, etc. We go here for a quick breakfast quite a... More

Broadway Lights has gluten free bread, wraps and pancakes. The staff is friendly and always takes my gluten free questions seriously. The gf pancakes are excellent and my husband raves about their "regular" food, too! I recommend it all the time.

This is a real NY Diner. They have every kind of food under the sun from traditional fare like breakfast, burgers, sandwiches as well as steaks and other entrees. It's all at diner prices from $5 -15. You can even get the Alex Burger if you're real hungry. It's a two pound burger loaded.

This was the worst meal I have ever had. The soda tasted watered down. It was easy to tell the lemonade was a cheap store mix. The food was bland. What else can I say it was terrible and I won't go back.
