I have gone here many times over the years. It's a novel concept but could be a lot better. Not real consistent. Service and food. If they could just work on that it could be 1st class. I like to go there because it's different. The atmosphere is fun . Like to take people from out of town.

Would never go back to this place. Was surprised that drinks are served in tiny little glasses and you are allowed ONE free refill!! And they charged $2 for this ABOUT 6 oz of beverage. $9 salad was just okay. Served in a styrofoam bowl. We chose this because it was less busy than all the other restaurants in the... More

Not only is the Street Car Named Desire a good place for food... (Like the fantastic Cheddar Burger) but it's also a great place to have an event. On Sunday, we had a 3 hour event, from 7pm to 10pm. It was great! The service was wonderful, the staff was great, and the entire event was handled very well. I... More

We have been a regular of Streetcar for 30 years and they offer a great menu with value pricing. Although it is located in Crown Center with other high end restaurants the meals are served on throw away plates but the food is fantastic. Service is usually very good. Con-soft drinks are only refilled once and are in a small... More

This restaurant is located in the Crown Center, the streetcar is integrated into the restaurant. I was there on a late Sunday afternoon, I was the only there, and the service was quick. The burger was pretty good.

My family ate here this past Sunday. Upon entering the restaurant, it looked charming and inviting. We were seated in the streetcar, which my young boys thought was pretty neat (so did I). Problems started, however, right after ordering. I quickly found out, after I downed my first glass, that you are only allowed 1 refill on soda. They charge... More

If you are at the Westin Crown Plaza and get hungry, be sure to stop by the "Street Car Named Desire". The name says it all as they have tasty food to tempt you pallet. Specializing in fast service for the shoppers, this restaurant provides four star service at burger prices... Stop by and experience, Street Car Named Desire....

The Streetcar Named Desire restaurant is located a few blocks east of Highway I-35 and about a mile south of downtown KC and I-670. It is near the Union Depot and the World War I Monument and is also connected to the Westin Crown Center Hotel. The outside looks like a streetcar and the tables near the front of the... More
