A lot of fun

Friends had recommended this to us and it was just around the corner so worth a look. The food is good, not mind blowing but good and hearty and there is plenty of it. The entertainment thought is where it is at. Live music all the time from all the best shows. The staff croon and bop their way... read more

This place isn't for everyone but I loved the people singing and performing duets with each other. Some great talent (and some not so great). The food however was dire. The worst steak I have ever had But you come here for the entertainment and definitely not the food Would go again but order a salad probably

We had breakfast on our last day here , it was so worth going !! The waiters / waitresses all take turn to sing and serve !! They are all budding Broadway artists and the atmosphere is fabulous !! It's a real must for everyone visiting The Big Apple 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Food is OK but you come for the entertainment which was fab! We spent a great Friday night here listening to the talented staff who were friendly and gave great service. Every one of them deserve to be performing for a living and it felt nice to know that all tips go towards further singing/acting lessons to help them achieve... More

We'd been told to go by someone who'd recently visited New York so we decided to stop by after watching the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. The interior is very much what you'd expect from an American diner. There's strip neon lights, booths, classic signs and the Stardust diner unique singing waiting staff. The food itself was very average, we... More

This place is unique. You can eat and drink and get serenaded by Broadway quality singers the portions are huge and service is fast. It's not really a venue for a romantic meal. It's fun and different.

This was a very unusual restaurant with singing waiters. We were entertained through-out our meal with a number of singing stars! The meal was also very good, go during the day and you do not have to queue. The staff were courteous and friendly.

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.
