The food was good and moderately priced. Place was packed and loud, which was ok for high energy family. The wait staff seemed a bit stretched to the max. Food was slowing coming due to busy night. Balloon girl was great making very creative ballon objects for the kids. Video games a good (pricey at $1-2 per game) way to... More

What a cool place to eat. We were given the name of this place from a local and all I can say is wow! The food is amazing. It's a retro diner so the food is diner fare. They have a large menu and there's something for everyone. My kids really got a kick out of the retro interior style.... More

if you want a quiet conversation place, go elsewhere. If you want a fun place to eat and take you back to your youth or show your kids what fun the 50's were, this is the place. Good music, played the way it should be, good food, cold drinks and entertainment. Go only if you want to have fun and... More

We had read some reviews about the noise at this restaurant but had no idea how loud it really was. It was fun that the servers danced to certain songs, but that could still be accomplished with the volume turned down a little. The food was okay, kind of pricey for a place like that. My kids had fun at... More

Had seen it Corvette Diner on a site that recommended it as one of 14 diners to visit in the US. It is a modern take on a 50's diner. They have an arcade room. The waiters/waitresses break into dance. It was a fun place to visit, would be great with kids.

If you have kids, bring them here. Very fun, loud place. Lots of old fashioned "1950's food," like burgers and fries and malts. Good food. Fun decoration. Dressed up waitresses.

Went here today for lunch on a Monday...no wait, no crowds, and great food! Benny, our waiter, was awesome. I was there on my birthday and everyone came over and sang. They were so friendly! It really is a fun place to visit...very unique...and the 50's and 60's music was such a treat!

I enjoyed this place when they were at their previous location. The neighborhood was more fun, and the restaurant had a better layout. The present restaurant is in a shopping center and has different rooms to eat in with different themes. You can't see the DJ from all of them. The decor was kinda childish. I'm sure kids would like... More
