It was once the “ship” diner but most knew it as the Brooklawn Diner with it’s 24hr operation and bar license. But new owners are breathing new life into the old diner, and possibly shaking up an a crowded dining marketplace. The old Brooklawn Diner fed a full house for breakfast, dinner and the after hours crowd. It was noticeable before it’s shuttering a few years ago that it was getting a little rundown. When the tax man came and took away the liquor license, you knew where it was headed. But today based solely on the exterior it looks like a major remodeling is taking place, and I can’t wait to get inside to see what they are up to. Rumors circulating that it is owned by a well known Philadelphia diner family.
