Very busy diner visited for breakfast pancakes. The singing waitresses & waiters were wonderful & could really sing, such fun when they got on the table or walked around happy for you to take their pics. Never ending coffee & pancakes too big to eat for me but lots of choice & good service.

This place was recommended by our hotel staff, I think it was very average. Food was ok, service was ok, price was ridiculous the singing was really good. We waited outside for about 40 min and it was cold. The manager kept insisting it would only be 15 min so we kept waiting. If you are waiting in line with... More

This place can be a bit pricey, but it is a famous and iconic place to eat in NYC. The food is great, and so is the service. The entertainment is very awesome. Talented singers inside.

Was really busy when we arrived, but got a table white quickly service was a wee bit slow but nothing to worry about. Food was good, nice & hot & comforting as it was freezing outside. The singing was the highlight for us really entertaining, they were mostly all good. All in all a pleasant experience.

My daughter turned 24 and so I thought this would be a perfect place to start her day. We were there at 10:00 on Thursday and we did not have to wait in line. We knew that this restaurant had fun entertainment from the waitstaff but to not expect a great meal and we did find that to be true.... More

This place gets 5 stars because of its amazing entertainment. The wait staff are all aspiring Broadway actors and the talent shines through as they sing classics both old and new like a live jukebox! Please note that the food here is not good. This place is getting 5 stars for its wonderful experience not for the food. I went... More

I was a chaperone for a high school dance team and we brought the girls to Eellen's. We made the group reservation months in advance. We shared the room with two other large groups. The chairs were packed in so tight you could not pull them out to sit without pulling the whole row out. The service was poor. It... More

We ducked in here after a show to have a quick dinner. It is a very fun place and the waiters are very entertaining. The food is your typciall diner fare (not great not bad). The reason to go here is for the entertainment. It was very loud (so, if loud music bothers you, this may not be the best... More
