So much fun!

This was our first stop in San Diego and this place was so much fun for us adults and the kids! Our waitress was awesome, we loved the glow in the dark 60's room and loved the dances the wait staff did. Great fun!

We just had such a great time here! I told my brothers, sisters and family that they had to stop in and take the kids when visiting San Diego. It's super noisy so expect to be rejuvenated, lol. We enjoyed our food and our cotton candy dessert.

Wow, where do I start? Firstly a great place to eat, good food, good atmosphere with a DJ (nice touch) an overall great experience. Great for kids and kids parties not so good for a quiet place to go as you won't get that. My personal opinion was to loud but I took one for the team and enjoyed the... More

We stopped in to this place for a dinner in which we wanted to catch up and have conversation. Our bad for not recognizing that at the front door and choosing someplace else. It's very loud, energetic and fun. Great music. So, if you want to bring family (kids) and allow that energy and high-decibel oldies but goodies be a... More

Perfect for the family with teens. Noisy, bright, fun staff, music . . . Food was good - excellent value. Great experience for family with teens who might not want to go for dinner with the old folks!

This is a fun place with an arcade inside to play while you wait or after dinner. The themed rooms are fun. The food was great.

Large party so a long wait. Busy evening so a little slower service. Wait staff very accommodating and entertaining. Special request food no issue. Just too noisy to be comfortable. Arcade makes it tolerable for kids during the long wait.

We come here every trip to San Diego. Fun atmosphere with a very loud, 50's diner feel. Tonight the service was horrific. Didn't get orders correct and took FOREVER! Generally a great place for anyone, but not today.

My family and I went to this restaurant on our last night of vacation (7/18/15) hoping for a fantastic finish to our wonderful vacation in San Diego. I was prepared for the 1 hour wait for a large party. My first mistake was agreeing to being seated in the "Party Room" after waiting for 1 hour. We were stuck in... More
