Arcade was very limited and not all games worked. Planned to have dinner but pager didn’t work and by the time we were seated it was too loud for the server to even hear our order.

We really enjoyed our visit! Such a fun, upbeat atmosphere. The wait staff was engaging, and entertaining. My girls got straws in their hair! The shakes and burgers were delicious, and the arcade had a lot of fun games!

Hi Marco. We love your pets but due to a few different reasons we only allow service animals at the Corvette Diner. If your best friend is a service dog then by all means we hope to see you soon. The Corvette Diner Team

Rock n' Roll, burgers and shakes rule at the Corvette Diner! A '50s throw-back, with sassy waitresses in poodle skirts and bouffant hair-dos. It's more than just a place to eat, it's a destination.
