Fun place for family dining

We decided to eat here because of its family appeal. My husband didn't love it as I think he found it a bit overwhelming but it met our needs perfectly. This is a fun, family- friendly restaurant. It is kind of loud and has lots to look at which was perfect since we were dining with a tired... read more

Its a 50s pop diner. Lots of fun. Our waitress was a lot of fun and attentive. Food was good and drinks even better.

The gps was taking us to this restaurant and we thought it was taking us to a gated community but it turned out to be a park/shopping area that it was in. Food was great, and the inside and atmosphere was unreal and sooooo cool. The different type of themes in each room and the overall look and outfits were... More

We only had milkshakes, which were quite delicious!! The noise level is off the charts loud!! Service was great and prices were reasonable. Food looked delicious, however, we had already eaten.

I had to entertain 2 kids, age 8 and 5, for the day and after we ran around the park I didn't know what to do! Someone suggested this place and it was great! Cool theme attached to an arcade. And we went on half-price Wednesdays so the games lasted a while. I highly recommend for kids!

This place really only gets two stars because our server provided outstanding service. Very professional, polite and unbelievably sweet. Other than that my burger, the Sids cowboy western was completely dried out and had zero flavor. Tator tots were typical and the fried pickles was bland and was a humongous spear which I would prefer a smaller one. The decor... More

This little diner is brilliant! We were skeptical but decided to stop because we heard it was great for families. We loved our experience. We had to wait for a table but spent our wait playing in the arcade. When we were seated our waitress danced past us with a handful of straws and threw them in the air. The... More

I have not been to the Corvette Diner in at least 20 years; it was one of my favorite places as a kid and I was really looking forward to bringing my nearly 2 year old daughter and husband so they could see for themselves how awesome it was. We did not leave disappointed. We were seated without a wait... More

Great burger options. You can get cherry flavoring added to your soda. And I had the Elvis shake--marshmallow, peanut butter and banana.

This is a very fun place to go especially if you have young children. Our daughter had a fun time but we were especially impressed with the food. The dinners for my wife and I were both excellent. Vivian was our waitress and did an excellent job as well. She made a bow out of straws and tied it into... More
