I was referred to Buccaneer diner and it did not disappoint. The food portions were large and tasty. The people whom ran it seemed to be a family or worked together so long it seemed like family. I received great service and look forward to returning.

Excellent food. Wonderful waiters and waitresses. Have been coming here for many years. We love the teriyaki combo. Enough food for two to share.

This is the second time we ate at the Buccaneer Diner; we were there several years ago. We stayed at the Marriott Courtyard at LaGuardia and this place is close and you can even get the Hotel to shuttle you there and back. The menu is enormous and you can order anything 24/7 from that menu. The portions are huge... More

When I lived in the area I visited the Buccaneer lots of times. It was convenient, but food was fair at best. The most recent and final visit was horrid. Poor service with unclean habits, feet on the diner counter, bad food... Maybe there was a change in management. Never again for me.

Came due to the TA reviews and the relative proximity to the Marriott. It's about a 15 minute walk, not too bad. I ordered the deluxe BBQ Burger and it was great. Please see my picture. Very large potion and was cooked exactly as I ordered. The waffle fries were really tasty and the pickle chips have an excellent spicy... More

Lunch, a Dinner, Delivery. I've done all that with the place. In 13 years I've never had a bad meal here. Yes the decor is tacky but it's about the food at Buccaneer. The wait staff has been with them for years and get to know the customers. Food is always plentiful.

We had just picked up our rental car from Budget and asked if a diner was close & this was suggested. After eating, it was really easy to get onto the GCP & head toward LI. It was great for a very nice and quick lunch & their extensive menu also provided many choices from a very light snack to... More
