After a busy day this restaurant was recommended as a local favorite and it lived up to its credit and then some. We had beautiful salad, hot soup and boneless chicken wings. Menu was extensive and they served B, L, D. Bakery looked amazing and we had great service, the price was low for the quality which was high. I... More

We enjoy diner food. And this place is well decorated inside and out and easy to get to; but I just haven't enjoyed the diner food as much as others in the area. The menus and specials are wide...Their is a giant assortment of desserts--and I do know that they are open quite late. Service is generally good.

I've eaten here alone as well as with family members, it's your standard diner. Their fries are good as is the service. They make their own desserts and the carrot cake is delicious.

For a diner that advertises that all baked goods are made on site, this is a huge disappointment. My husband and I have been here for breakfast several times and found the basic eggs, bacon and home fries to be average and mostly dependable. But anything else is highly questionable. Pancakes, waffles etc. are sweet and conning and no maple... More

I am glad that you find our breakfast to be dependable but am sorry you didn't enjoy your desserts. We do not have maple syrup because we have looked into carrying it numerous times and the cost is extremely prohibitive, maple syrup is just too expensive. We would have to pass on a huge charge to customers wanting maple syrup... More

Looking for a sit down place for breakfast on way home from weekend getaway and came across the Malta Diner. Surprised to see it as busy as it was for a Monday morning and they were well staffed and efficient. Breakfast was delicious, I had the French toast deluxe with eggs, bacon, ham & sausage. My boyfriend had the pancakes... More

I love their Greek salad and husband enjoys either a burger and fries or an omelet. I have been busy with an ill pet and having a hectic schedule and by 4 pm I find I'd rather go out than cook this is my go to diner.

We stopped on our way home from Saratoga. No complaints it was a clean diner, the food was good. Would stop again when we are back in the area.

Don't expect more than a typical diner but the food was above average and the staff were super friendly. Extensive menu. We had Malta Diner special club. Great taste great idea (turkey club w Gyro meat substituted for the bacon in the club ). If your in the area go here!
