Good food and good fun

I was looking for something unique and different than the typical chain restaurants and found it with this place! Food was good, our server was very friendly, and entertainment/singing made the meal more enjoyable and fun! Great for family fun or just the adults.

It gets a little loud in here. But the show you get with your food is worth it! And the food was pretty good too. I had a chicken quesadilla and cheesecake, my son had the chicken and waffles and a milkshake, it was all good! Definitely worth it, even if you have to wait!

Food was good and came quickly. Waiter was great and entertainment (singing waiters) was fabulous. A fun place to go especially with kids. Don't be scared by the line up, it moves quickly. The tables were very tightly packed. Go for the fun atmosphere, energy and entertainment. Don't go to visit. It is very loud.

Overpriced tourist trap in the midst of midtown theater district. Food is "eh", service can be what tourists deem as "typical NYers" and not worth the price or effort. Best to look for other options on 9th Ave.

A must eat for our family whenever we are in NYC. Great location, a fun place to eat, comfort food and great milk shakes. Always enjoy the singing wait staff. Pricey for a dinner but it is NYC. We've done breakfast, lunch and dinner and never been disappointed.

It's all about the entertainment which is excellent. All the staff sing show tunes at a very high standard. The queue looked big, but they move it along quickly so the wait was not a long as I expected. It's quite cramped upstairs but it's still ok. Food is ok but pricey if you just looked at the food and... More

This place was recommended to us as we are all musical theatre fans! it is a must do experience if you are visiting New York! We arrived early in the morning for breakfast and there were plenty of seats but I think it gets very busy later in the day. The food was good - we had breakfast - pancakes,... More

Very good premise for a restaurant with the staff singing show tunes, just a bit poorly executed. Atmosphere was good, but the food was mediocre at best and they seemed to be trying to physically cram in as many people as humanly possible (having a dedicated entrance and exit). If they thinned out the tables a bit and put more... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
