Punctuating sentences
Friday nights at the diner were always busy, I prefer the activity.

Is this answer correct?
Friday nights at the diner were always busy; I prefer the activity.

Yes, it is correct. Two independent clauses (which you have in this case) must be joined by a semicolon if they are to appear in one sentence.
