Since it's lighting is low good for a romantic meet. Food is excellent but not a large variety. Does serve alcoholic beverages. Small indoor area as in an old streetcar but does have a small area outside of streetcar but this is located within Crown...More

Glad we got to eat here before it closed just for the atmosphere. Absolutely loved the streetcar entrance and story behind the car, and wish we could've been seated there. The food wasn't as horrible as some of the reviews I read made me think...More

Great streetcar shaped diner with even greater food! Service was prompt and the food was there in a matter of minutes. I am really sad that this great restaurant will soon be leaving.

For years, we have celebrated the birthday of mother-in-law at Street Car. In fact, 40+ years ago, my father-in-law and mother-in-law had their first date there. Of course, it has changed locations, but the food has definitely stayed the same. The burger is fantastic...go for...More

This is a nice place to remove yourself from the bustle of shoppers in Crown Center. It's a fun place. Who wouldn't want to dine on a streetcar named Desire?! Before heading back to the hotel I stopped in to order a chef's salad for...More
