I had an excellent breakfast this morning at the Sweet Hollow Diner. It was a simple scrambled eggs, home fries and coffee. But it was done very well and the restaurant and staff were great. The restaurant was very clean. The waitress was friendly and...attentive. The coffee was very good. The scrambled eggs were just slightly under cooked. Perfect! The home fries were crispy and delicious. I could not ask for anything more. I wish this place the best. They are an excellent diner.More

We visited for a business lunch on a weekday afternoon. The food was great. I had the London Broil Wrap. The steak was marinated and cooked to perfection. Coffee was the standard NY diner coffee. Service was almost nonexistent and unfriendly fron the lady with...short purple hair. We had to ask for napkins after we received our meals. No silverware? I'm glad we got handheld food.More

Stopped here for a Long Island diner breakfast and it met all our expectations. Staff was friendly and food was delicious. We were able to sit and talk for well over an hour without being rushed to leave. Thank you!!

We walked here from our hotel on two mornings for breakfast. We had a group of 12 so we called ahead both times and they put tables together for us. The breakfast menu was very varied and the portions were plentiful. The service was excellent....We were very happy to have found this diner.More

I like the sweet Hollow Diner because they serve up a good value meal. Lunches are awesome. I would like to see some different specials. The menu doesn’t ever change. My favorite place for a Greek salad. Omelette are amazing and the staff does not...rush you. Really good desserts too. Handicap accessible.More

Nice people , food was ok yes I would go back I had a plate with Greek spinach pie brown rice, served with a starter Greek Salad The salad was very cold just the way I like it, however it was loaded with iceberg lettuce,...I would have preferred some romaine if added mixed greens. I ate t all so maybe not so bad. The brown rice was excellent. Looking to duplicate the flavor. Perhaps simmered with some chicken stock but I tasted a seasoning blend. Very good! The spinach pie. Was lifeless not as flaky as I am used to, no color so they do. It use any oil or butter I like Greek food, this diner stick with old stand by breakfast or a burgerMore

If you live in New York, diners are common, but if you are visiting, diners can be very special. And, the Sweet Hollow Diner checks all of the boxes in the special category. It is very conveniently located along hwy 110, just north of the...Long Island Expressway. It has a wonderful menu, of comfort foods and more. Pretty much all of the things that you can think of for breakfast or lunch, are on the menu. The food is very well prepared. The staff is very happy and friendly. The portions are good and the prices are reasonable. What more could you want. If you are in the mood for a hearty breakfast.... this is the place. Hamburgers, sandwiches, great fries and a host of other lunch foods.... this is the place. I was there for a breakfast, and a lunch, and both were great. They are also open for dinner, and quite an extensive menu.More

One of the last of the good ole diners in Melville. Been going there over 40 years and a constant in our life. Baked clams are great and the sugar free cheesecake never disappoints.
