Tick Tock Diner, an iconic symbol of the American diner with locations in both Midtown Manhattan and Clifton, New Jersey, has mastered the art of casual dining, providing customers with high quality ingredients, generous portions at a reasonable price and a comfortable, family-friendly atmosphere that keeps them coming back year after year.
The 280 seat Midtown Manhattan location opened in 1997 at 481 8th Avenue (corner of 34th Street), across the street from Penn Station. Tick Tock Diner has long been known for its American comfort food. Today, it remains true to tradition while offering more dining choices than ever before on its extensive menu, accented with Italian, Greek and Tex-Mex influences. Keeping in the diner tradition, breakfast is served all day, featuring more than a dozen omelets, farm fresh eggs any style, pancakes, Belgian waffles and French toast.

    Food was good. Service and wait for food was very slow. Restaurant was not crowded and 8pm and as others have said very very slow. Don’t plan to be in a hurry

    Several unique types of pancakes. Not to pricey for NYC. A little touristy but this is what we expected.

    We visited with high expectations given all the reviews on various sites. Less than impressed. Didn’t need reservations..it was dead. Ordered simple grilled cheese sandwiches, one plate of Nutella pancakes. The pancakes were good. The grilled cheese was totally lacking in taste. Prices reasonable for what you get but wouldn’t go back. Service was good tho. Maybe after a concert or event at MSG across the street, you’d be hungry for anything or maybe only b’fast foods are their thing.

    Lemon Ricotta pancakes didn’t look as pretty as the picture but we’re delicious. Coffee was good. Philly cheesesteak and egg sandwich was not shaved ribeye as stated but chunks of mostly chewy fat. Would not order again. Side of bacon was borderline rancid. Didn’t send anything back as I didn’t want to make a fuss so in all fairness I didn’t give them a chance to “make it right”. We left full and satisfied but not impressed. One more observation … the decorative clock on the wall didn’t work. C’mon… it’s the Tick Tock!!! Get a working clock!

    It’s a nice enough little place but 2 out of 3 meals weren’t very nice at all. We had 3 meals, a soda and 4 beers and were $120 so I wouldn’t say it’s exactly cheap either. While one of us was still eating our main meals our server was asking to take desert orders :-/ it would be somewhere to go if there was no where else but I wouldn’t go out my way.

    Great location as it’s right across from Madison Square Garden and attached to the New Yorker hotel. It’s a nostalgic experience and a good diner setting. Food was ok but the service wasn’t much. They are so busy it doesn’t matter much to them. Make a reservation.

    We were looking for a less crowded restaurant that had food our kids would eat near Times Square. This fit for our needs perfectly. Typical diner atmosphere. Typical diner food. Pricey for what it is but it’s NYC.

    Sadly this wasn’t an amazing experience. Mostly, the lack of child’s menu was unhelpful for our family, and forced us to pay for an adult meal wand waste most of the plate. The service at midday was uncharacteristically unfriendly and abrupt for an NYC central restaurant. Portions and food quality were on par with any good diner, it was only the delivery of the service that truly let this down.

    We went to Tic Tock to meet with a friend for a late lunch before going to the theater, we needed a place conveniently located, we didn't want anything too expensive or with a long wait. It was surprising that we were able to make a reservation, the place was nice and clean, the staff was attentive, our food was delish. We ended up staying way past the time we finished eating because the weather outside turned frigid and nobody rushed us or made us feel uncomfortable like other restaurants would. We will definitely go there again.

    Needed somewhere quick to eat breakfast and this was off the lobby of our hotel. I made a reservation online and our table was ready when we arrived. Service was superb. Prices were a little high but appropriate for a NYC hotel. Food was very good. I was a little surprised that they charged for coffee refills. I’m from the south and coffee refills are complimentary in most restaurants in the south. The avocado toast was delicious. Overall, I recommend this restaurant.

    Don’t make any changes to the order…if you order straight from the menu without changes you will be fine. If you try to make changes (for example cut the tomatoes) it won’t happen and it will take several tries!
