Great food fun and service! A must see if you have kids! The staff made sure my 7 year old had fun and she had a blast! The onion rings were huge and yummy and so were the milkshakes!

Such a fun place! The quick little performances were a blast! Prices were what you would expect for a tourist attraction. But the food was really good! Our party of four loved our dishes. There are several different theme rooms, and a decent size game room to take the kids into while waiting. Loved the atmosphere!

Stopped in for desert and ordered up the Big Banana Split, I was not up for the challenge it was just too good and too large the waitress in bobby socks said she had them put marshmallow cream on top of the ice cream and under the whipped cream just for me. The toppings were real fruit and so big... More

This is not a place to come to if you want a quiet romantic meal. The kids will have fun with all that is going on ,though, including a balloon maker. I had an Elvis peanut butter burger and there are a lot of other wild choices. I liked the 50's videos!

Great experience. I didn't know quite what to expect but a 50's dinner, but it was more than that. We had to wait 10 minutes for a table but no big deal as we had the arcade to hang out in before being seated. We started with yummy milkshakes which we waited a REALLY long time for. We also tried... More

This place was great. Our waitress wasn't the most enthusiastic, but she was good and made sure we had what we wanted and checked on us every so often. The other waiters and waitresses seemed a bit over the top with how loud and crazy they were, but that was the atmosphere and they did a good job. Our table... More

What an amazing restaurant, really good food, sensible prices and great staff. We were served by Ricky a great waiter. He was very attentive and interacted really well with our kids. The food arrived quickly and was great. The surroundings are equally stunning. If you come to San Diego make sure you eat here at least once. If you're not... More

We took 5 kids here for my birthday. Non-stop entertainment! Make sure your server decorates hats for your boys and bows for your girls! Our girls LOVED their new hair accessories and had fun having them created...don't miss this experience! If you have kids, you have to indulge in the cotton candy cake. Huge, cheap, and kids love it, worry... More

Brutally loud and active (our waiter greeted us by throwing twenty-five straws on our heads -- no joke), the Corvette is a diner "experience" rather than an actual diner. The food matches, i.e., it resembles a Philly cheesesteak or Reuben without actually succeeding in being one. You can have fried zucchini, fried pickles, fried onion rings, calamari fries and each...
