Over the last few months, I’ve been to Connecticut far more than ever! That includes going to a couple of new diners too! Recently I was in the Bridgeport and Milford area and decided to stop at the Bridgeport Flyer Diner. I was hungry, and it was close.
When I arrived around dinner time, it wasn’t too crowded. The outside is that of many diners. It’s modern but clean. There is nothing unusual or that stands out, minus the sign that says “busses welcome.”
When I went in, the waitress motioned to sit anywhere I pleased, and I got a fun locals vibe from it. I chose a booth since they are my preference.
There was nothing unique or unusual about the coffee, but it was good. The waitress refilled it a few times.
The Bridgeport Flyer Diner has many options whether you want all day breakfast, lunch, or dinner. There was almost a full page of specials which caught my eye. I decided to order the prime rib which came with salad, vegetable, and dessert.
Since I was hungry, I also ordered the Mezze platter which was a Mediterranian platter with chicken, gyro, olives, tomatoes, salad, hummus, pita bread, and feta. In short, I ordered way too much food but had no regrets. Very few mezze platters include chicken and gyro, so it was a nice treat. The appetizer itself was great, and so much food. It could easily be a meal for someone.
My prime rib was cooked perfectly. I couldn’t have asked for better prime rib and was a thick cut, cooked medium rare. I was pleased. I chose French fries and carrots for my sides but was rather full for the fries.
Since my meal came with dessert, I ordered the bread pudding. It was decent bread pudding, not my favorite but not my least. It was good, and I would order it again.
The waitress was one of the most friendly of any diner waitress I’ve had. She was friendly, attentive, and seemed to know every local that stopped by.
For my prime rib, coffee, and mezze platter, it was about $35. It was enough for 3 people.
Overall Thoughts/Would I Come back:
I liked the Bridgeport Flyer Diner, and I would definitely go back if the opportunity presents itself.
