Seven Seas Diner (Great Neck, NY)

Seven Seas Diner (Great Neck, NY)

Also known as the 7 Seas Diner

I’ve been to the Seven Seas Diner (Great Neck) several times. In fact, it was the first full meal I had after the New York City Marathon. I wanted to try it a few more times before determining it was my favorite diner.  Everything tastes the best after a marathon!  The Seven Seas Diner is located in Great Neck, NY and Nassau County not far from my brother’s alma mater on Northern Blvd.

Seven Seas Diner Atmosphere: A
The outside of the Seven Seas Diner is a big building located on a corner. It’s nothing too exciting or exciting, but it is well kept. The inside has several booths and tables as well as a bar. You walk in next to the bakery section. It’s a very standard diner layout.

Seven Seas Diner Coffee: A
If you count every single time I’ve been to the diner, I’ve had close to 20 cups of coffee at the Seven Seas Diner.  I’ve never had a bad cup. The waitresses have always brought multiple refills. The whipped cream is made fresh as well.

Seven Seas Diner Food: A
The Seven Seas Diner menu is huge. As with any diner, it’s a black hole of items. Unless you know precisely what you are craving, you’ll have a hard time choosing right off the menu. Everything looks and sounds fantastic.

A significant reason the Seven Seas Diner menu is one of my favorite diners is because they have a pita breadbasket. If you know me, then you know pita bread is one of my foods. Any restaurant that has pita bread basket already starts on the right foot.

I’ve been to the Seven Seas Diner and ordered a few different things of their menu.  The reason I haven’t posted a diner review until now is that I hadn’t taken any photos!  It’s hard to believe that I went to diners and liked them! A recent trip to the Seven Seas Diner included a greek omelet with feta cheese, spinach, tomatoes, and onions.  Rye toast is my favorite, so I ordered that as well.

Terrible photo and lighting but there was not an extra 5 seconds to take a new photo...

I’ve also had the Mediterranean salad and Gyro wrap as well.

Seven Seas Diner Dessert: A
The Seven Seas Diner gives you warm complimentary chocolate chip cookies. I have never been to a restaurant that does that.

Super doughy.
Super doughy.  Since they are small you can eat ten and pretend nothing happened…

Cost: $15-20
The Seven Seas Diner is one of the more expensive diners I’ve been too. Even though it’s more expensive, the portion size, complimentary cookies, and high-quality food makes it worth it.

  1. This looks really good and hooray for free cookies! The only places I’ve been to with free dessert were ones that did free soft serve or something. It’s a cool idea to give everyone a small cookie or something at the end of the meal, more places should do it!

  2. Did that bread basket come free or did you have to pay for it? Seriously, if a place has free bread, I’m there. Sad that not many places give you food to eat while you wait, anymore. I mean, probably a good idea, but come on, I love bread. 🙂 And free dessert! Yum! We had a few places in Columbia, Missouri when I worked at Mizzou that gave free cookies after your meal. I think that attributed to my weight gain while there. (oops)
