I have been going to this restaurant since it was Twin Brothers back in the 60s. The service is excellent and the food is good. It is always open and that is a real plus these days.

I normally order take out from Waverly, as, most of the time, the Diner itself is too cramped and crowded for my taste. They are lightening fast with the deliveries, the food is always good....but it is the most expensive Diner I have ever eaten in/from.

Waverly is my go-to guy for both in-store and delivery when I want diner food. Their food is among the best diner food around and their prices are fair. They've been delivering to me for several years and never gotten an order wrong. No one will ever confuse it with the Waverly Inn of course, but for what it is it's among the best.

A diner is a freestanding structure; technically this is a luncheonette, and one of the best of a dying breed - like the NYC deli, most luncheonettes been replaced with trendy haute cuisine restaurants. Not so for the Wave, which still serves up all the classic diner fare. Tasty eggs and pancakes, daily specials (Greek and Italian dishes are delicious), and fresh juices and milkshakes. The steak and seafood is surprisingly good for such a humble place. Portions are large, prices moderate, and you can't beat the ambience of classic red leatherette booths and a counter for solo diners. I've been eating here regularly since I moved to Manhattan almost 20 years ago and have never gotten anything but superb service for dining-in, takeout, and delivery. Try the Waverly Melt Deluxe or a piping-hot muffin from the cast-iron trays above the counter, yum.

I just ordered delivery from this restauraunt and it was terrible. First of all the phone guy is rude. It took 40 mns to get my food and my eggs benidict was cold and tasteless, the hashbrowns were soggy, and fruit was bad. However, the orange juice was fresh queezed and very good!

Wow, I used to order from here all the time. Tonight I was told by the not-terribly charming phone guy that I live too far away. (It's about 6 blocks). Okaay. I guess they're doing alright and just don't need my business. Feh.

The Waverly has great atmosphere. You go there for people watching and to be seen, not for the food! It is too expensive for what you get: neigbourhood pub quality food.
