    Amazing impressions

    To be honest, I can't rate the food, as I was simply waiting for my friend's girlfriend - I ordered a coke - the taste was tipicaly "coke" and US - Like - too cold - due to much ice, but I could have ordered it with out ice... - she was trying dancing shoes somewhere else... But what I can say is, I felt authenticaly put back to the 50ies... The music, the staff... it was perfect - from what I can say - I'm only 25! Also I liked to be involved in the "show" programm - I I could post here a pic, I'd do it... I'll be back 2006 in sept. hopefully the impressions will be topped!

    I wouldn't recommend it

    The atmosphere was absolutely amazing, but the food was not! It was overpriced, but you have to think of it as paying for the entertainment. Service was pretty poor as well. We were rushed out of the restaurant and couldn't even get a second glass of water! It's definitely one of those things you have to do just to say you've been there and had the experience.

    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.

    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.......
