We may have just come at a bad time, but there was a measurable discomfort with the staff before we entered. We were dressed nicely, and entered to enjoy dinner, but the reception was offish and clumsy so we had a glass of wine and a beer and left (yes, we paid...and tipped...but it was purely an act of kindness...

We eat at Streetcar last night, and it was so much fun. We hadn't been there in a few years and wanted to go one more time before they close. The service was excellent. The atmosphere just as I remembered. We had our usual meals, Big George for my husband, cheeseburger for my daughter, and tuna melt for me. I... More

We had such a nice lunch here with our kids and grand kids. Everyone liked their food. The service was great. We watched the busy holidays shoppers as we sat in the street car and enjoyed our food. We have heard that it is closing, and that is very sad, as we would have loved to have come back when... More

Great streetcar shaped diner with even greater food! Service was prompt and the food was there in a matter of minutes. I am really sad that this great restaurant will soon be leaving.

For years, we have celebrated the birthday of mother-in-law at Street Car. In fact, 40+ years ago, my father-in-law and mother-in-law had their first date there. Of course, it has changed locations, but the food has definitely stayed the same. The burger is fantastic...go for the Big George. But don't stop there, get the cheddar cheese on the burger is...

This is a nice place to remove yourself from the bustle of shoppers in Crown Center. It's a fun place. Who wouldn't want to dine on a streetcar named Desire?! Before heading back to the hotel I stopped in to order a chef's salad for take-out, and it turned out to be quite large, very tasty, and a great choice!... More

The entry to the restaurant in Crown Center is an actual street car. They serve a really good burger. Unfortunately, I have recently heard talk that they may be closing. Its a fun place to have lunch.

This restaurant has been an iconic part of Crown Center for so many years that I can't remember when it WASN'T there! Unfortunately, it will be leaving the Crown Center complex at the end of this year (2015) to make room for something else. BOO. Streetcar has your basic burgers and grilled chicken sandwiches, all at very reasonable prices (around... More
