“Cool place for small and big kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Had a blast! Food was very good, portions are huge and priced reasonably. Went for a birthday and our girl received all kinds of special treats (balloon horse, hair decoration from straws, they sang for her, plus dessert.) All the staff was very friendly, they danced and sang around. Didn't go to the game room but seemed like one could spend a lot of time (and money) there. We only got some fun pics from photo booth. The only reason I am not rating this restaurant as excellent is that in their house drinks (I had Scooby Dooby Doo) there was barely any alcohol in it for the high price. They do not take reservations but we only had to wait 10 minutes. You can choose to sit in different sections (room with old TVs, in dark quieter room, main bright and loud but fun room.)

“Kids love it, great 50s music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

This is a higher priced diner in the fantastic Liberty complex. very cool old Corvette when you walk in. Different parts have different decor, like black light posters, B&W TVs, etc. Good oldies playing constantly, lots of decorations, autographs, etc. on the walls. Wait staff dressed in 50s style with goofy hair and glasses. Fun place, food is ok and not diner cheap, but not expensive either. Burgers and sandwiches, some entrees like meatloaf or whatever. Also a kids game room with pinball and video games, never been in there but kids would love it.

“good times, overpriced games”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Great food, had some kind of hamburger with cheese it, and other stuff that was moster size, even for me. Prices were around same price for burgers at similar places like red robin and others. Had a milk shake that was also very good.

Dinner/lunch deal on that day of week had some kind of special for game room. So hit that up for a few minutes.

Mostly liked the atmosphere.

“Too Noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Very load music and impossible to carry on a conversation while having lunch. Food is just ok with very large portions. The best part is the ice cream bar with all kinds of shakes and sundies. Good place to take the kids, but bring ear plugs!!!
