Nice 1950's Themed Restaurant

Love the atmosphere of a bygone era. We had sandwiches and burgers, milkshakes. Games arcade in attached area which the children really enjoyed after their lunch. A lovely step back in time!

The expeience, theme and staff were great however the food was average but this was reflected in the price. A great place to have some fun with the family with an arcade and games next to the restaurant and huge shake menu.

Had visited here almost 20 years ago. This is a new location for us. Much larger than previous location. Great music, food & service. Our server Yvonne was great. I had a huge root beer float. Love Corvette's.

Service great, and so much fun watching the joy your little one experiences here. Food is pricey for but decent for a "diner." You pay for the excellent entertainment value.

We recently celebrated my niece's birthday at Corvette Diner. This new location is amazing, the food was great, the entertainers were funny and the kids had a blast. The downside is that it can get very costly quickly.

First time here and I was not disappointed had the BBQ beacon burger that was nice moist. My friend had the sloppy joe with salad and that was tasty as well. We split a strawberry ice cream shake that was very good. They also have full bar. The day we went was very busy with a lot of birthday groups... More

Long wait (1.5hrs) but a great place to eat with the kids. Eugene, our waiter, was awesome. The service is a bit slow but we went right at dinner time. The cotton candy was a huge hit with the kids.

Awesome food, reasonably priced, and a diverse enough menu that you can get a shake or a cocktail. Lots of attention to detail here with the express intent of pleasing the customer. A bit loud, but you... More
