    Insider View: The menu consists of Reuben, double-patty burgers, and for contemporary eats check out Long Island duck salad and French-y stuff like steak till 2 a.m. on weekends

    Pretty good spot but seemed like the diner wanted to be more of a bar than a diner. Chef a little over the top with trying to make the food creative. Make sure you read menu in detail. Shakes are good

  • The Wall Street Journal
    The Bowery Diner serves breakfast until 5 p.m., dishing morning staples like omelettes, granola and Belgian waffles—served with not-so-standard bacon, frozen custard and chocolate sauce. Read more

    Despite its name, BD is far from any old diner, as it includes raw bar offerings like oyster- & snow crab-loaded seafood towers and specials like roasted duck breast w/ applesauce. Read more

    “Though it doesn’t always succeed at either, Bowery Diner’s menu aspires to satisfy adult cravings as well as childhood ones.” When in doubt, order one of their creamy milkshakes. Read more

    •Tip For Parents•. They have crayons and hats to color. They also have Diner postcards so have your kids hand write someone. P.s. My daughter did not like the homemade whip cream on her shake.

    The Bowery Diner does mid-20th century Americana on creatine with all the finery you'd expect (big ole burgundy booths, stainless paneling, concrete floor, dessert case). Read more

    This place misses with its efforts to be an upscale/ hip diner and comes off as trying too hard. Selection doesn't meet diner cravings, aren't particularly good, and are overpriced. Avoid delivery.

    Sangria is unbelievably amazing!!! The new daily specials is a great way to taste some of the other awesome dishes from chef. The fried chicken is amazing too!

    A bit overpriced compared to Brooklyn / Queens, but after all, this is Manhattan... The over easy eggs were cooked to perfection, the bacon was DELISH! Service was good. =)

    Keep it simple & you must be OK. You'll be in a diner, but with a great vibe. Keep expectations under control. BTW-If they screw something up they won't correct it without a strong demand from you.

    Clearly the "popular tip" on my foursquare today was left by a particularly pretentious non-diner-friendly denizen of hell because this place left us feeling perfectly content and cozy.

    If you are going to schlep all the way to the Bowery you should be getting Chinese food. This place is subpar and the chocolate bacon waffles aren't all that great

  • Stella D.
    Amazing cocktails. Teaches of Peaches is my fav. Mackerel ceviche, shotgun sandwich (tar tar, capers and aoili on a hero) and their rueben are my recs.

    Pricier than the average diner, then again its not the typical diner. The onion rings are so good. Its real onions, lightly battered and seasoned well
    Victoria Wong · April 28, 2013
  • Sabrina B.
    Pricier then most diners, but location. Great food and atmosphere. Full of the after bar crowd in black tie and gowns. Try the PB Cake shake.

    Mac & cheese w/ bacon is tasty, nice portion too. What the people really want to know: wifi p/w: pancakes
    Britt Lewis · June 14, 2013
  • Katie A.
    Food was delish (ceviche, mussels, snapper) and service was great, but check the fish...had to send ours back b/c it was raw in the middle!
    Katie Arcati · January 29, 2012
  • Michael G.
    The grilled cheese ($5 during the day, $9 at night), features a great salty/creamy combo of cheddar and Swiss, plus garlic and herbs.

    The bacon is perfect !!! Pancakes are good too ! The terrace is a little noisy but the inside is fine.

    This place is definitely just selling the atmosphere. The food it's alright. A bit overpriced. But the service is good.

    The ten dollar spiked milkshakes are worth every penny. Chocolate mousse cake and peanut butter with Maker's, can't go wrong.

    Jenni lee cocktail is unreal. raw scallops app, awesome. If u love ruebens, the house cured and smoked meat melts in your mouth
    Andy Ulery · February 25, 2012

    Rather underwhelming... Bad service, largely mediocre food, and their milkshake machine was broken. Three requests to get a drinks. Keep walking down the street...

  • Priscilla L.
    Disgusting and over priced. Had a burger and it was so undercooked the patty was mush. Friend had a chicken Cesar salad and it had anchovies in it. Yuck!!!!
    Priscilla Lugo · January 20, 2012
  • Allegra M.
    The fried chicken is awesome! The Bowery Special burger is also amazing with its house made pastrami. Happy eating!
    Allegra Marrone · February 25, 2012
  • Camilla B.
    Not to be missed. Amazing service. Amazing shakes. Amazing eggs. Amazing pancakes

    If you need something refreshing, try the Greek salad - anchovies included, sometimes dolmades, and NO lettuce. Yum.

    Great fatty flavorful corned beef Ruben! Get the salad with it instead of fries to balance it out! ;-)
    Rich Wolf Rubel · February 13, 2012
  • Devin P.
    The atmosphere is amazing and the food is on point. Ask for the Mac and Cheese and a Stella Artois.

    I'm conviced this is a shared kitchen with the Bowery mission. Expect poop for food. Only diner in America without American cheese !!!!

    Bathroom are unheated. Not totally uncommon in Manhattan, but sharing. Agree with other reviews, service is lackluster.

    The bacon here is amazing. If you don't like it or "only eat turkey bacon", you have no soul.

    Phenomenal service, delicious high quality food, true Americana... One of NYCs finest diners.

    Burgers are good but go w/fries option - the greens are literally just a few lettuce leaves

    Chef refused to do a lobster roll without mayo (after the waiter checked and said they could) because it wouldn't look right #fail

    Best Bloody Mary! Live jazz - can't beat the atmosphere

    The salmon LEGGS Benedict are to die for! #shitZombiesSay

    Pricey, bacon is wonderfully crispy, best for late night burgers or raw bar

    Reuben and donuts were great! Wanna go back to try the Colombian breakfast and duck confit hash!

    The Bowery Special: a burger with beef, pastrami, and Swiss cheese.
    Mike Strocko · January 29, 2013
  • Steph M.
    Horrible service. You have to beg them to take your order, pay, or bring you the food you ordered

  • Benjamin P.
    Most things are not especially good here but the steak salad is great. Good steak, spicy.

    Overpriced mediocre food. Skip the ramekin sized mussels. However, the charcuterie plate was decent.
    waisum t · February 5, 2012
  • Irma Z.
    Mac and cheese and fries at 2am is the best. Don't even consider it for a normal lunch or dinner
    Irma Zandl · December 15, 2012
  • Chanson B.
    The food is decent. Nothing special but not bad either. It is, however, waaaay overpriced.
    Chanson B. · July 27, 2012
  • Xande M.
    They have Stumptown coffee and La Marzocco espresso machine. 2 out of 3 covered.

    My latest experience was not-so-good—enough to make me question ever coming back here again.
    Leslie Q · December 4, 2013
  • Luke K.
    Unseasonably overpriced. Walk south and try Great NY Noodletown instead!
