Was out for dinner and got what I did not expect ... I thought of just a normal diner when we decided to go for dinner at the Corvette Diner ... wrong! Shortly after getting seated a nice waitress (Lucy) started doing a lot of fun to me and my wife. Did include a straw-tuned hairstyle of my wife and... More

We were expecting a Johnny Rockets kinda feel from this recommendation but it was really loud and covered a few decades in its theme. Menu was very big and portions were too large for us to finish but meal was good, service was good and we really enjoyed the chili fries! Shakes and traditional fountain pops were great too!

We went on the Sunday before President's day with a party of 8. At 7:30 pm they told us it would be around a 1 hour and 45 minute wait. It actually ended up taking 1 hr and 20 minutes. So we went to their nice arcade section with 4 kids and spent a fortune waiting for our tables. The... More

This place was made to entertain kids. Huge game arcade that parents drag screaming kids from who don't want to eat the food but want to stay to play the games. The music from the 60's and 70's is so pervasive as it thunders out of the speakers. There is a live DJ and the service staff dances regularly to... More

Not your normal dining experience. It seems like most of the groups there were celebrating a special occasion. Lots of sights, sounds and activities. Food OK. (Do try the Rory burger!) Entertaining staff. Lots of decorations to keep you occupied. We took our future son-in-law there for his 30th birthday. He is a San Diego county native and had never... More

Too noisy to even have a conversation. The food is average diner food that is overpriced. Don't waste your time or money

Came here for a birthday party and as soon as you walk in there is a lot of activity going on. The staff is really happy and friendly, the music is loud and there is a lot of singing by the staff. The food is classic diner food so not much for dieters. I had the Rueben and my husband... More

I loved it! The diner has a funky & festive atmosphere. It's great for families or for a date . Our server made my grandsons balloon hats. She was great, I wish that I remembered her name. The food was good from appetizers to burgers. The milkshakes were huge! We had a great time with delicious food. I'd love to... More
