Cute little find with decent vegan/vegetarian options. The price wasn't bad at all and the strawberry milkshake was lovely! Free refills on drinks like coke, lemonade etc.

Now, make no mistake, eating out in Iceland is a costly activity so finding a place like this is a real gift. We went there for an evening meal. A couple of really good burgers, all sorts are on offer, plus fries ( medium fries, too many for my wife to consume!) we also had a couple of soft drinks... More

Visited the American Diner with my wife for a few drinks whilst in Reykjavik. Reykjavik is expensive for food and drink, but we found the American Diner really reasonable. A pint of Gull lager (which tastes nice) is 800ISK and a pint of Somersby cider was 1150ISK, so a total of 1950ISK for two drinks. At the time of traveling... More

Order and pay at the counter, get your drinks with free refills and they bring the meal to the table when it is ready. The medium basket of fries is really big and more than enough for 2 people. Pictures on the walls of various music artist and a playroom for children. We enjoyed our meal. I would not compare... More

Traveling with my 17-yr. old across Iceland, we needed to stick to foods that I knew she would eat. Headed to the American Style Diner for burgers, Fries and shakes. Burgers appeared thin, so we ordered a double with cheese and it came out like a Big Mac with the extra bread in the middle. I promptly removed the bread... More

Thought it was going to be a fast food joint. When we entered, we thought oh hell, but we were all starving. Food was excellent. My steak was fabulous. Free refills. Would recommend the chuck norris style. Fantastic.

Similar menu choice to McDonalds/Burger King probably a good place for people who are worried about 'foreign food'

This place looked closed from the outside but was actually quite full. Food was tasty and quite good value for Reykjavik. Serves beer and also has a happy hour.

We didn't have long to eat before a trip and didn't want to spend a fortune- we chose well. Burger and chips and refillable coke x2 for £35. Very cheap by Iceland standards, very tasty by our standards. Would come again.
