I have eaten here many times. It is good. Had BLT and fries a few days ago. Fries were delicious, tasty and not greasy. However, the BLT was very skimpy with bacon and the tomato pieces were too thick.

Recently stopped for lunch on a Tues. afternoon. Service was great, but the food was below average. My reuben had a weird taste (very vinegary) and my husbands fried chicken dinner was a joke. It was obvious that it had been reheated from a previous day. It was tasteless and had very thick skin and super thick breading. No chicken... More

The food is really good "comfort food". The prices are fair and affordable for the family. The service has always been exceptional. The building is in a little need of repair and updating, but overall a nice experience.

I enjoy small town diners and this is one of the best. Great service with all around good food. Never felt rushed and this was a Friday night. Generous portions on all items.

The Queen Diner is a small, local eatery where it appears mostly locals congregate. Nobody is in a big hurry because this is the country. We stopped in for breakfast on the annual trip for track day at Watkins Glen International Raceway. We arrived fairly early (about 8:30am) and the diner was less than half full. We ordered up our...

Strong diner menu with great quality food. Prompt friendly service. Good for families. Enjoyed the "Sausageburger". Sausage with peppers & onions with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese on a hamburger bun.

We've eaten here many times. The food is always very good, and we always receive great service. On our most recent visit I enjoyed the Philly Cheesesteak, with fries. The fries here are very tasty, thin shoestring fries. The roll the cheesesteak was made on was very fresh and soft, and the sandwich was loaded with three or four different... More

Definitely the place to go in Dryden for breakfast. Attentive service and consistently good food makes it a sure bet. Prices cannot be beat.

When I go to the Queen it's because it's close, not because of anything special. The food is okay, but it's the same menu they've had since it opened 20+ years ago. The prices are reasonable.

Order the soulvaki. It's the best thing on the menu. They have fish fry on Friday but its breaded, not battered.The meatloaf has no flavor and the marinara sauce on the parms and spagetti is way too sweet! Where are the homemade cakes and pies? They don't make any.
