This was our second choice when visiting Crown Center for a day of Christmas Festivities. Our first choice was Fritz's but the line was super long. Noon was a crazy time but there was no wait at Street Car Named Desire. Although there were table empty both in the garden area and the restaurant area, we were told the only... More

The name is catchy and the location is great, but it is just missing something. It seems very lazy to me. paper plates, horrible food. Ordered a BLT and it had a couple slices of bacon and 2 pieces of toast that looked like a cheap version of Sarah Lee Bread that you make for kids lunches. Lettuce and tomato... More

This was connected to the hotel which made it east to walk to. We just had sandwiches but the food was good and came out quickly

This restaurant is conveniently located near the Westin Crown hotel. The food was pretty good, and the staff was very friendly. Great restaurant for being inexpensive and conveniently located.

Two adults & 2 kids (age 4 & 6) - Burger was ok, waitress said it was a 1/3 lb and it looked like a frozen patty (funny that she asked me how I would like it cooked - you can't control medium-rare to medium well on a patty that thin. and you are not allowed to order rare hamburger).... More

My husband and I were shopping at the Mall and decided to stop here for dinner. I think they had a pretty limited menu. We had BLTs. They were OK. They did give you loads of bacon which was good and it was well done but they had the tomatoes (that did not look ripe) and the lettuce separately on... More

The name is catchy, and the train car grabs your attention, but that is all this has going for it. The food was on the higher end, and we were served dinner on paper plates, and small portions. The wait staff was not busy, but was not paying attention to us. The food was not worth the money. Drab cheap... More

If you are staying at the Westin this is a great place to grab a quick bite or drink. VERY reasonable prices, good selection and super friendly staff. Enjoyed the history of the real streetcar storefront!

The nasty cheddar burger has a blob of cheese-like crap on top. the paper plates were a "nice" touch as well
