Waitress was super sweet and outgoing! This place is super retro! Great for kids or anyone who doesn't mind it to be... More

We visited this restaurant during our visit to San Diego. The atmosphere is great, we loved the singing staff and the dj, the milkshakes were excellent. The food was typical diner food which is exactly what we expected. All and all a good experience.

Good food, very friendly staff and resonably priced. Would go again when in area. Enjoyed being with our Nephew and Niece and little Mathew at this place. Our Nephew Noel is a medic at the navel base not far from this fun restaurant.

An employee at Seaworld recommended this to us. It was not easy to find but the sat nav came through! It was worth the effort. My kids - 18 & 22 - thought it was great. They have their own DY & the staff get very involved in the era - 60's. Food was good & plentiful. God price.

We were two mom's with two 8/9 year old boys from out of town looking for a fun dinner. Corvette Diner served us an evening we won't soon forget. After being seated in the dark room, our AMAZING server Reggie arrived at our table and greeted us by throwing handfuls of napkins at the boys... and the belly laughs began.... More

I love taking young kids here because they always seem to have a great time. I'm not much a fan of the food. The food isn't bad - just not really that good even though there are some really creative menu items. For the lively diner experience, service and entertainment effort I gave them another star. It's ridiculously noisy here... More

Visited on June 6, 2014. This was our families last day in San Diego before flying home and we wanted our elderly parents to get a little nostalgic :) We love the location and all the vintage pictures and of course the Elvis out front and the Corvette when you wait to be seated. The music is great (very loud!)... More

Visited in March 2014. Very, very noisy! Love the theme and idea but you can't carry on a conversation!! The waiter threw straws on us when he came to introduce himself and they sat us in the dark room with glow in the dark paint. It was DARK. Took a flash picture of our food and later when we looked...

Waitresses were friendly, decor was amusing, food was adequate. I loved the live entertainment. However, the noise was the highest decibel level I have ever experienced anywhere. It is almost deafening. The music was great, but played so loudly you want to put your hands over your ears and forget about carrying on a conversation.

I rarely write a snooty review on here but this place is just not my favorite. It's too loud and the food… eh. But if you are into the era and the little bit of false sense of history that the restaurant offers, it's ok. The staff is also super nice, so that makes up for everything else.
