What diner has been voted Bethpage’s Best of Long Island diner for the fourth year? The Lindenhurst Diner is the answer. After reading that we knew we had to try it. So, one weekday afternoon, we made our way to East Montauk Highway, Lindenhurst. Was it worth the trip? Let’s just say that we will definitely be back!
We found two accessible spaces in the paved, parking lot, near the ramp to one of the single door entrances. There are benches at the bottom of the steps and ramp for someone who needs to be dropped off. Enter the first door and you find yourself in a small entryway, then double doors to the diner itself. The diner has a retro look, both outside and in, making us feel cozy and comfortable. One of the things we loved was their ability to change the color of the lighting. LED lights make changing colors easy and a wonderful way to add to the ambiance. They were green on the day we were there, for St. Patrick’s Day.
We were warmly greeted and led to a spacious booth. Booths, tables and a full counter make up the seating. There is ample space between tables to navigate. We had read that this venue is “family friendly,” and we certainly found that to be true. We were given all the time we needed to peruse the large menu. Not only is the “regular menu” huge, there are vegan and plant based menus as well! Inclusive food options for all! Oh,I almost forgot the variety of lunch specials. It was difficult to make a decision. Since soup was included with lunch, I chose the Manhattan Clam Chowder – it was so full of clams and other good stuff that it was a meal in itself. My huge chef’s salad, got to be taken home and saved for dinner. My better half’s burger and fries were also delicious. A special shout out for the perfectly done fries! We heard that their shakes are not to be missed, but we were too full to try one. Next time! The food was delicious, the staff super friendly, and the service couldn’t have been any nicer. What more could one want? No wonder they were voted Best Diner!
Large, single occupancy restrooms are located in a hallway. Unfortunately, there is only one handrail next to the toilet. It would be great if they would add another one, to make it easier for people who need them. There are accessible sinks and a baby-changing station.
We loved our lunch, and look forward to visiting again, especially with our vegan and vegetarian friends. We heard that all of the food is great!
