The Diner, located near May 4th Square, serves up one of Qingdao's best burgers (with a healthy portion fries) as well as other western favorites such as Lasagna Bolognese, Grilled Beef Sandwich, and assorted pasta dishes.  Appetizers include favorites such as Nachos and Shrimp Ceviche.  Summer months include a weekly BBQ held on Saturday evenings.  The Diner on Saturday & Sunday mornings is a favorite breakfast meeting place for local expats.  Favorites include the North American or English breakfast platter, Denver omelet, or French toast.  If you like this place also try: Luigi's Pizzeria: Pizza, Pasta, Burgers, and more....
Shanghaiist ( Review:
Speaking of which, I unfortunately thoroughly wasted my last real meal.  I only had time for one lunch and decided to spend it at Diner on May 4th Square, a mistake.  Perhaps I just ordered wrong, but it reminded me of what Shanghai thought of Western food ten years ago.  A watery olive oil splattered mushroom soup, an overcooked steak sandwich and an iced cappuccino (they didn't have just regular iced coffee) was around 85RMB.

I used the Diner quite a number of times when I stayed across the square mostly sat in Sparks and ordered from there. I cannot recall any bad experience, I must have had about ten+ of the menu items all were OK for me with very good & friendly service, beers and wine were also quite good.

En 8 ocasiones he visitado la ciudad de Qingdao ( 2005 al 2011 ). Conozco este Restaurant desde su inicio, en el he pasado muy buenos momentos y he conocido a personas encantadoras.
Muy buena comida estilo mexicano, ensaladas, pastas, carnes, sopas etc. Restaurant ideal para cenar y tomar alguna bebida.
Los trabajadores son atentos y amables, algunos de ellos son mis mejores amigos en China. Ha sido catalogado como el mejor Restaurant en calidad/precio.

The Diner: Great if you like dull bland food. Car parking is also a rip off at 6rmb per hour, unless you go at weekends. Used to be really good, but has gone down hill a lot.
