Hey guy who posted "stop being so cheap!" This diner has ridiculous prices even for Time Square standards. I'm a native new yorker and when I saw the menu, my wife and I took our three kids somewhere else, what a joke/ripoff. Travelers BEWARE, just because you are in NYC you dont have to pay these ENORMOUS prices. I walked two blocks away and had a bowl of Minestrone $4.00 and a slice $2.50, ansd a bud light $4.00. Get a Clue Dude

I agree with you, I don't get the complaints. I love this place, it's the epitome of the true New York City experience. So the food's a little pricey. I've always found it to be terrific, hot and plentiful. But it's the atmosphere I really love. It's a great casual diner and the perfect way to start off your day in the Big Apple. So if you are visiting the city and want a great diner experience, check it out.

After reading all the reviews from everyone, I just wanted to say to you cheap people out there. Hello, your in NYC!!! Stop complaining about the prices. I on the other hand have always had a great meal and experience eating at Lindy's. I have visited NYC every Labor Day weekend for the past 8 years. Every morning I make a point of going to Lindy's for breakfast. I always see the same waiters & waitresses every year. That tells you something about the place. So stop whining people.

I ordered a tuna sandwich and an ice tea. The bill was a little over $20. Way overpriced. When I was there I counted about 5 diners that sat down, read the menu, and walked out.

I've actually been here a few times, every time on the request of out-of-towners who want to eat at Lindy's. Every time I eat beforehand and simply order coffee and play host. The bill-shock is always great. Last one had a "britney spears" (chicken salad triple decker), a "lucille ball" (turkey and swiss), 2 cokes and a slice a cheesecake. (I paid for my coffee separately so as not to get pulled into a stupid tip...it's over $3 as it is). Total after tax and tip was over $70. For food you can get at any diner for quite literally less than half the cost. And most of the diners have better service (and often better food). Face it, you go there, you are paying an unreal markup just to say you ate at Lindy's. But hey, it's more money into our city coffers in the end, so if tourists want to blow hard-earned cash on food that no native in their right mind would pay for at those rates, more power to 'em.

I had a bad morning a few weekends ago and thought I'd treat myself to a big breakfast so I popped into Lindy's - I had never been. I didn't look at the menu until I was seated (breakfasts aren't that complicated) and had ordered my coffee. The cheapest breakfast was $15. MOST were $20+ For EGGS. No joke. I didn't even check the price of my coffee until the bill came - a cup (which, sure is refillable, but still) was $3.95. FOR REGULAR COFFEE which wasn't even *good*. For $20+ I assumed (ha) it would at least be really good. The eggs were overcooked, the bacon was tiny and the toast was barely toasted. It was a crime. I felt like I was robbed. I will never go back.

Lindy's will go down as one of the worst dining experiances we have ever had. Not only was is outragously overpriced and simply subpar food, the service was just unpleasant. The waiter literally did not speak to us, he just walked up and stared at us. Funny that he found his tounge when giving us our check. We left Lindy's as fast as possible and wouldn't go back if someone PAYED us to!
