    Great Atmosphere

    I came here w/ a bunch of ppl to celebrate a birthday. It's a really cute and fun place to be. The waiters + waitresses took turns singing oldie songs (great voices) and went around to the tables, engaging the customers' interest and attention. The food was pretty good. I'll be honest and say the atmosphere was better than the food... but it's a place I'd go back to. I ordered chicken tenders which were alright. Someone else ordered a chicken pot pie that they really liked. So... it's a B for food and A for atmosphere.

    So much fun!

    The food may not be gourmet...but the atmosphere is phenomenal! The singing waiters and waitresses are so good! If I lived in NYC...I would go there every week!

    Highly Recommended

    Stumbled accross this wonderfully fun resturant while on holiday in New York. Well worth the effort of getting there for the great atmosphere. The food is pretty good too. Make the effort when going to Broadway to watch a show, you wont regret it!

    Not Recommended

    What an incrdible disappointment. I was expecting great food with generous servings, but got a cheeseburger on an old stale bun, with ten, (count'em) ten greasy, sloppy French Fries. My Grandson ordered what was supposed to be pizza, but it looked and tasted more like cardboard with Romano cheese warmed in a microwave oven! No kidding. Throw in a cup of coffee and the bill comes to $26.40. Don't forget the receipt asking for the customary 18% tip, not that it's the waiter's fault. Stay away from here.

    Avoid

    I have to tell you that this is not the place to go if your looking for good fresh food at a reasonable price! At least it wasn't on my recent visit on 5/24/04 for some breakfast at 10:00 AM. I have been in the food service industry for years and perhaps that makes me a little less tolerant, but I really don't think that was the case here. I also live on the coast of Maine and recognize when a restaurant doesn't really give a crap for the tourists but are only waiting for you to pay the check and send you on your way. I really felt taken by this place! My wife ordered the "homemade hash" that was obvoiusly from a can (i have been making my own for years and this was not it). The menu said crispy, when in fact we could have used a straw to suck it up! The eggs were bad as well. My french toast was greasy & gross. The toast was like a damn crouton dipped in oil.I was actually actually served deep fried sausage! The silver lining was my sons pancakes, they were OK! We did have to wait a good 5 minutes for someone to bring us the syrup and butter for them though (hello? it's pancakes and french toast). 1/2 filled cups of coffee with 2 creamers at a time and a single sweetener packet rounded off a completely sucky meal. I can't stand asking for coffee everytime I get close to the bottom of the cup which this time actually had grounds through it. I was tempted to complain but was too pissed so I plopped down my 40.00!!! for this mess and left. Oh yeah, and No Singin'! Please know I am not a whacko, just someone who doesn't like being played. Once bitten.......

    Very fun and entertaining

    This is a very fun and entertaining place to go to if you are in the city for a play or if you're just around the area. The food is good, especially if you go for dessert and the entertainment (the waiters and waitresses singing) is really fun.
