This place is a must see for great up and coming vocal talent that is a step away from performing on Broadway. Incredible talents! If you're there for the food alone....don't bother. The Belgian waffle tasted like cardboard and the service was limited at best. They served my coffee without the milk that I had requested and it took them... More

I'd heard so much about this and wasn't disappointed. What a great atmosphere - could've sat for hours. You order your food or drinks and sit back and enjoy your waiters and waitresses singing well known songs. Our MC Lisa really racked up the atmosphere and looked so proud of her "wannabe's" who had superb voices and performing skills. One... More

This place is one big party. Everyone seems happy, the talent is great, the food was ... good ... the prices weren't bad (considering it's Times Square) and the songs covered pop, R&B, classical Broadway, modern Broadway and some pretty great duets & trios. I love the confetti guns; I'm still pulling confetti out of very odd places. The minute... More

There is always a long waiting outside the door. Don't think it's good because of that. We thought the same. Inside it's dirty and the staff it's only nice if you give them money. They all sing and they ask you money for it. It is not cheap but also not too expensive for New York. The food is ok... More

This is a must visit when in NYC! The diner is typical American as tourist would expect, with the added advantage of great singing by the waiting staff while you eat. We were amazed by how good it was. We had to queue for 10 minute at about 10am on a week day, but the queue was about 1.5 hours... More

You can't come to New York and not go to this diner. The food is ok but the atmosphere is electric with wannabe broadway stars serving tables singing in between. Go!

My mum and I came here last week and despite waiting for an hour outside, it was amazing! We both had burgers and they were delicious. However, the highlight of course were staff. They had incredible voices and the songs were amazing, everyone was hypnotised when they began singing. Don't let the wait put you off, it is most definitely... More

Ellen's diner is a must if you love singing and dancing and good food. We were there quite early in the morning but you wouldn't know it, the staff sang their hearts out, danced around the tables, while delivering a scrumptious breakfast. Don't miss this venue if at all possible.

Thank EthelPug

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
