    “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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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. =)

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

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

    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

    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

    The grilled cheese ($5 during the day, $9 at night), features a great salty/creamy combo of cheddar and Swiss, plus garlic and herbs.

    •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.

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

    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

    The fried chicken is awesome! The Bowery Special burger is also amazing with its house made pastrami. Happy eating!

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

    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!

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

    Great fatty flavorful corned beef Ruben! Get the salad with it instead of fries to balance it out! ;-)

    The atmosphere is amazing and the food is on point. Ask for the Mac and Cheese and a Stella Artois.

    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.

    Mac and cheese and fries at 2am is the best. Don't even consider it for a normal lunch or dinner

    Pricey, bacon is wonderfully crispy, best for late night burgers or raw bar
  • Brian Anthony H.
    Get the chicken and waffles. Otherwise, just go home because you're doing it wrong!

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

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

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

    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.

    The Bowery burger rocks. The pastrami is very lean and delicious.

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

    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.

    Happy hour now moved later: 6-8pm. Half off all drinks and oysters FTW.
