We are happy we decided to make the stop here for dinner. Kids loved the fun atmosphere, I loved the music, and we all enjoyed the games. The game credits and tickets are all on the same card which is simple and easy to use. Downside was the noise level. It was hard to order our food and hear each... More

What a lovely diner this this. Throw back decor and excellent food. Lots of music and dancing by the staff. Kids ranging from ages four to twelve loved the experience. Music can be loud.

"People can get a cheeseburger anywhere, ok? They come to the [Corvette Diner] for the atmosphere and the attitude." If you can get past the overly loud music, it's a fun experience, especially if you have kids. We sat in the room with the black lights, so the tables and posters glowed. My favorite part was when the servers danced... More

We arrived at 3pm on a beautiful Saturday, and we waited about 15 minutes to be seated (a couple of two). Lots of birthday parties for kids. We were seated in the 70s themed black light room. They have a full bar, but we got the chocolate shake (wonderful, enough to share) and the chili cheese waffle fries. Now, the... More

We took two young children to this establishment, one they have visited often with their parents. It was a first (and last) for us. We had a 45 minute wait (when we called for reservations we were told they did not take them). There was very little sitting for those waiting -- we supposed it was designed to have those... More

Great family friendly restaurant. Clean restaurant. Staff was super friendly. Sang and danced for you. Gave my daughter a hairdo made of straws. And the cotton candy tower was a huge hit in the end. Food was good. Would definitely go back.

My hubby & I took our kids (14, 11, 10) here on a Thursday night during Spring Break. We arrived around 6pm and had a 25 minute wait. We went to the arcade while we waited which the kids enjoyed. Think a cross btwn Chuck E Cheese and Dave n Busters. Once seated, service was friendly and prompt. Food was... More

The dinner is modeled after a '50s style dinner right down to poodle skirts and bee hive hair. The food is good, think burgers, tuna melts and other diner delights. The atmospheric is lively and very loud. They have a live DJ spinning hits from the '50s up. You can even make requests and dedications. If you go, don't forget... More

Lots of fun, games, wait staff entertaining during meals, good food. This place was a lot of fun, and great for the kids. Don't go here if you are hoping to have quiet conversation. It isn't possible. Great shakes. Big crowds!

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.
