Good morning thebigdog88,

Appreciate your feedback.

Hahahah, sorry I had to laugh at your love for Abba! It is not a default cd, as all the songs get entered manually, which the guests and staff do, and it seems that Abba is quite popular then...!? Nice to hear you always enjoy the hamburgers. :)

With your next visit, make sure you enter a lot of songs yourself.... ;-))

Kind regards, Irma

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Such a funky place!! The food is good full meals which you don't get often anymore and the atmosphere and 60's theme is a must see on anyones travels. Staff are fun, although some need to be a bit more friendly. Definitely recommed a visit

“Great find at Storms River”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

What a pleasant morning spent down memory lane. We had milkshakes and burgers for Brunch and it was fabulous together with the retro diner atmosphere. Loved all the Marilyn and Elvis memorabilia, the Cadillac and checked floors. Service was a little slow, but extremely friendly and pleasant. Certainly left in high spirits and ready to hit the road again. Thank you.
