The outside of this diner is the photo shot used throughout the Seinfeld series. Inside is a quaint NYC Diner. I was alone so I chose to eat at the counter. Late at night there were a lot of people outside taking photo ops and several inside. Waiter at the counter was attentive and quick. Food was prepared as requested, burger and fries. Parking in the area can be hard with Columbia University, Housing and a local hospital. If you are visiting NYC I recommend the subway or a taxi. The food was very good. An enjoyable experience.

Pretty good food. Average prices. Breakfast served 24 hours. A few references to the TV Show that made it famous, and a wall of interesting pictures.

Ok, I'll admit...Stopped in because I'm a HUGE Seinfeld fan visiting from out of town, but what I discovered was a friendly staff, decent prices & a Great oasis on a Hot August day. Our water glasses were always kept Full & Cold
Ice cream was a Dee-Lishous treat in the Hot NYC Sun ☀️

We went here because of our family obsession with Seinfeld, but we were pleasantly surprised with the great service and outstanding food. Our son had blueberry pancakes which were to die for! Our daughter and I had the lobster roll which was also very good! Dad had the omelet which was also very, very good! We were very glad we came.

We ducked in Tom's after a visit to Columbia. We went here on recommendation, but also because of its notoriety. The outside is famous for it's use in Sienfield. I typically steer clear of touristy destinations, however, I was pleasantly surprised with Tom's. We ordered the chicken wings for starts and I can tell you, I have never had anything so delicious! A different technique with the cooking leads to one of the best flavors. We also had a hamburger, that was just as delicious. The service was excellent and we enjoyed our experience all around. Highly recommend!
