Ate here last evening.
Had a short wait outside as it was full. When we were seated, there was a great atmosphere and a lovely food smell.
Zeck, our waiter, was welcoming and efficient. We had nice local beer to start followed by two tasty burgers.
There were top class singing wait staff performing on the tables as diners ate. The diners joined in the singing too.
Overall, nice NYC food in a top fun atmosphere, we loved it...

This use to be a terrific place to visit when it was owned by Ellen It had great entertainment and great food. Just returned from a trip to New York and was very disappointed in the food. A table of 10 and we all ordered different items. Nothing was good. Entertainment was okay but no where near Broadway ready. Prices were a little high. If you have to go. Have a Malt and save your money . Ellen sold out and everything changed. Nothing unique about it anymore.

If you are staying near Times Square, this is a place to stop. The food is delicious and the wait staff are amazing, sometimes singing to the whole restaurant while refilling your coffee. Unique experience in NYC.

If you love musicals it's a great spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Reasonably priced easy American food, but it's not the food that made Ellen's famous, it's the ambiance. The staff are performing a great mix of new and old musical pieces and you might run into the problem that you'll be eating cold food after a while. There are so many performances that sometimes you even forget that you have a plate in front of you!

I loved this place. We traveled here with a bus tour so our food options were limited but I had the meatloaf and mashed potatoes which was delicious. Our wait staff was friendly and above all they were great singers / entertainers. I would definitely go back to this place if we visit New York City again.
