We visited here twice within a few days. Both times for breakfast. The first time was great. Got seated almost immediately. The food was excellent & staff were attentive & friendly. I would recommend the waffles with maple syrup & bacon! The second time we were a bit later and had to wait a long time for a table with... More

Lovely diner to take the family to kids to Your regular American breaky and a better price that going to Times Square Staff could be a little more friendly - hard to want to give a tip when the woman behind the till just frowns at you

This place was just excellent, everything you could want to eat available. We had huge American pancakes which were to die for, other days cinnamon toast which is also amazing, breakfast with poached eggs on toast. We dined here everyday during our 5 day stay! Highly reccomended. Staff so efficient, free refills off coffee, orange juice available as a meal... More

We visited this place for breakfast last in 2016 and the food and service was fantastic. Back again today and it was awful; both food and service. We won't be coming back.

A typical american diner. When you turn the corner looking for this place just look for the queue of people. We had breakfast here on our first day. I had the corned beef hash which came with two eggs and fried potatoes, it was lovely and it was a huge portion. My wife went for the pancakes and bacon with... More

We visit this diner every 6 months when we travel to NYC. It is consistent for quality and service. Never disappointed! We appreciate being able to find a tasty meal at a reasonable price. A diner just like home. Thank you Westway Diner! We really appreciate you!

Westway Diner is a place I continue to tell all my friends about after visiting NYC from the UK in early December last year. In typical American fashion, the portion sizes are gargantuan and perfect prior to exploring this amazing city. On the two occasions we visited Westway, I opted for the French toast with poached eggs and bacon -... More

First stop to eat after a very long drive to NYC. Went based on reviews. Maybe we hit an off day, food, mediocre, fries came with our order and the amount was sparse. I guess the waiter thought so too because halfway through our meal he brought out a dish saying he didn't think we were served enough. That was... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us, Susan. While it sounds like our service was on point, I apologize that the rest of the experience didn't follow suit. We're not looking to serve anything that's mediocre, so I was surprised to see that was the impression we left you with. All in all, I know we can do... More

Seeing the queue out the door when we arrived was frustrating, but it quickly went down. The food and the coffee were good and reasonably priced. My only concern was that it felt like they wanted to hurry you out to get new customers in.

Peter D, Owner at Westway Diner, responded to this review

It's true that we get pretty busy around here, but it's always our goal to make sure folks are taken care of with a minimal wait. It's never our intention to make you feel rushed, though, so I apologize if that's what it felt like. That said, I'm glad to see you enjoyed our food and coffee. Here's hoping we'll... More

We were tried several Diners during our stay, but Westway was the best place close to our Times Square hotel. Excellent service and good food at reasonable prices, be prepared for a queue though. Buy off the specials if you are there during the week!

To know ours was your favorite is such a nice compliment -- thank you! You can always count on great food and service, so I hope you'll stop by again the next chance you get. All the best, Pete D., Manager More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
