We were walking from the Transit Museum to the Historical society and needed something for lunch. We spotted this diner and gave it a try. It is like most of the New York diners; small seating area is jammed with seats. Large menu. Large portions. The portions are large. I would recommend sharing a dish. Food was good. It had... More

We wanted the American breakfast experience and this is what we got. Fluffy pancakes, crispy bacon, perfect sunny side eggs, lashings of syrup and hot black coffee. Nothing fancy here. But efficient service and authentic decor plus low prices. Yum yum.

Conveniently placed, this diner has a speedy service. Plenty to chose for in for lactose intolerant and gluten-free options.

This is an all-night diner, which is really good to have around when you come home late from work and need a burger or something. Sometimes the service is brusque, but nearly always it's OK, and the food is very good. That's why I keep coming back.

I went here for lunch when visiting family in Brooklyn. The menu was extensive. I ordered a beef giro which was delicious. The portion was great value for money. I would definately recommend this place for a nice cheap lunch.

Pleasant diner with the expected enormous menu covering many nationalities particularly Greek. Friendly service. Standard diner fare. The Greek salad was ok but not extraordinary and a tad pricey. Navy bean soup was sort of a minestrone that was slightly sweet probably with some ketchup which was so so.

Good food and the prices are resonable. I order the stuffed filet and the potion was more than adequate.This is a place that you might miss if you don't know exactly where it is. The waiter was really nice and very friendly. He was very personable. I would definitely recommend this place. Especially if you have a large family.

Happy Days we love you! As annual visitors to Brooklyn this is a very significant part of our holiday plans. We heard that Happy Days had recently been taken over and were apprehensive at the possible changes we might find. Our concerns were unfounded though. What we experienced was the same magnificent welcome from waiters Reuben and Lorenzo, and the... More

Happy Days Diner is just that, a diner. Good American food, from gut busting selections typical of diners, to those on the lighter side, anyone can typically find something here to suit them. While it's not my first choice for a quiet dinner out, it's a good place to take the kids. It's also a very handy spot to stop... More

Its easy to miss this little gem if you are chatting as you stroll (or trying to avoid the Verizon picketers next door) but do yourself a favor and seek it out. It is a classic American diner with that "been in the family for generations" feel. We were served by a charming woman who you just wanted to call... More
