You would have to be seriously demented to eat there. This place is revolting it is beyond believe. The abhorrent smell of the potatoes fries and frankfurters sizzling in the some type of over burned stinking grease which could be as well

There is very little indoor seating and lots of outdoor seating, butr being outdoors in the winter could be a hassle. Once I got into the fight with one of the ladies who took my order. She told me my ten dollar bill I was trying to break for my meal was fake. the manager agreed. The shrimp breakfasts, fries, burgers, hot dogs, corn, and sada's are great along with the beers. There is an umbrella by the outdoor seating area
There are also bathrooms with a long line. They can be quite filthy with tiolet paper thrown on the floor. It does smell. This is the orgional nathans, and I live kinda close to here. Right near astroland. This particular Nathans is combined with anotehr fast food chain I fogot which one though, but I do think Nathans will make more money just by going solo.

Pros: Lots of seating, very close to the beach, umbrellas at seats

Cons: Very long lines, long wait, filthy restrooms

Get your hot dog with peppers & onions and definitely order the fries. A small size soda is enough to quench your thirst, a medium will drown you.

I've been going to Nathan's for over 50 years. The natural casing dogs are the absolute best for taste and quality. The fries (you can't get them anywhere else) are the best tasting. At the Coney Island location, you can get a BBQ sandwich which comes with onions and relish (pardon me if I'm drooling) This place is an experience. Follow the crowd which has been there forever...you will not be disatisfied!!!

Pros: always fresh and clean

Nathan's dogs are good but like any business that gets too large, quality starts to suffer. Having a Nathan's dog while strolling Coney Island will always be a quintessential New York experience but the truth is the best hot dogs are in Manhattan at either Gray's or Papaya King. You get much more for your buck at Gray's or Papaya King as well. Nathan's now also serves fish and chips, fried chicken and even burgers. The Coney Island location is essentially 3 restaurants in one now. Service is of a fast food quality but tolerable. If you want kraut or onions, you have to request it upon ordering.

Pros: Good Hot Dogs; Can't beat the location

Cons: Doing more than hot dogs has hurt the hot dogs

After all these years, I finally included a trip to Coney Island in my visit to New York City. It's nice to see it trying to come back. Everyone should get a Nathan's famous hot dog at the original location at Surf & Stillwell. It's a piece of history and a very good hot dog!

I ordered the Chicken Caeser Salad which came with a gnat in the lettuce and a few croutons. I also bought a water which came out of the fridge warm... mind you this was on a weekday before the lunch rush. I would stick to a hotdog or eat before you go to the boardwalk.

I can't see myself paying $2.50 for tubed meat which contains pig snouts, chicken beaks, bull balls, hoofs...mixed with enough preservatives to give the Egyptian embalmers a run for the money, and then mechanically squished into an intestine. That guy Nathan was a genius, he sold all the butcher's scrap at a premium price.

Many people go to this Nathans because of the authentic hot dogs, thick fries and cherrystone clams. This is well worth the visit for the atmosphere and good food. Beware, prices have gone up quite a big here.

PROS: authentic Nathan's food
CONS: a bit pricey

I grew up in Coney Island. I haven't had a Nathans hot dog in almost 6 years now. Just the thought of them makes me salivate. The crispy skin, the juicy bite, the smoldering fries. It's the best, the original, and the only place anyone should go for a great dog and fries. Nathans makes Coney Island.

to have a hot dog in ny is a tradition. to have one at coney island, where the hot dog was invented, is the ultimate. for some reason the original location on stillwell and neptune isnt listed on city search. go the extra couple of blocks and get your hot dog, fries and lemon aid there! we went a week ago, off season, the place was empty and you can get a seat outside which was awesome.

Editorial from

Although there are lots of franchises, you've got to travel to Coney Island to sample New York's most famous hot dog in its original freestanding building that's been around since 1916. It's now worn enough to fit right in with its seedy…
