“Fun times and family friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Visited with my family w/3 children. The place was quite an experience. The waiters are friendly and entertaining; all are trying to land jobs in Briadway so there is a lot of singing and dancing.

Food was fine, good environment.

“Fantastic night out -a highlight of our trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

We went to Ellen's at the recommendation of a friend and are so glad we did. We had been to a show so went in for dinner around ten thirty, it was packed but we were seated quickly and our waiter quickly introduced himself and provided menus. There was more singing talent in that one restaurant than in a whole series of X factor and we were amazed at their ability to sing and serve at the same time. We couldn't fault the service - it's a busy restaurant but if you needed something it was easy to attract the attention of your waiter. The food was good, hot and lots of it - it's not a Michelin starred restaurant but that's not why you go there. We had a fantastic evening and would love to go back if we visit New York again

“A little hokey, but a good time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We stopped into Ellen's to escape the wind and cold. We had heard it was a fun place to eat, but we weren't sure what to expect. Our server, Frenchy, brought the food and sang like a dream. My son loved the experience and our food was pretty good too. I recommend the brisket on the pretzel bun. Very yummy burgers too. Thanks for the fun!
