We went here with about seven kids, and we were seated right up front, where everyone was singing. It was so fun! Our waitress was very nice and even sang Happy Birthday to a girl in our group. We very much enjoyed the singing, and the hilarious "Single Ladies" Dance done by another waitor. The food was great as well! I would recommend this to anyone with kids, or anyone looking for a day of fun!

My sister & I selected this restaurant because of the singing waiters. Upon entering this establishment, we were seated in a very busy area. The location was inappropriate , due to the fact that people passing by would inadvertently hit Maxine, which became very annoying. To curtail this issue, Max moved over into another seat. Maxine received her order first, which was meat loaf & supposedly real mashed potatoes, (not) with rye bread & butter. she had to request that the mashed potatoes be warmed for they were cold! Reluctantly the wait staff took her plate back to be warmed. She also requested additional butter for she had only received two small tubs. In the meantime, I finally received my order of corned beef on rye. The bottom bread was falling apart, the top was hard not toasted. I was willing to deal with this & just eat the meat. I requested mustard, and to my shock & horror , I was given yellow mustard! Who puts yellow mustard on corn beef or pastrami? I wanted brown mustard , that's the mustard for these type of sandwiches., besides that the meat was salty as hell! The wait staff returned with 6 tubs of butter that were frozen solid. Tell me, how in the hell can anyone spread frozen butter on your bread? By this time Max had enough and stated " I am Not happy" I knew it was time to go, for I wasn't happy either, plus I had to get Max out of there! I asked our waitress for the check! I told her we didn't want the food. She removed the plates without uttering one single word of apology or even asking what the problem was! She didn't have any concern about our displeasure at all. I was going to tip her for her efforts, but due to her lack of concern, she got nothing! We hightailed it right straight to Juniors and got a terrific meal! The old adage stick to what you know rings true in this instance!! The food & service was absolutely lousy! We will never go back there ever again!

I've been to NY many times, but this past January was the first time I'd been to Ellen's. We went with a large group and the manager was very accomodating and sat us in a great spot to see the performing. The singing servers was amazing and our even did a tribute song to our entire table. The food was great, along with the atmosphere and I will definitely return when I visit the city again this summer. AMAZING!!

My sister and I took my daughter and our niece there before an evening show. Arrived at 630, seated quickly, short wait. Waiter took our orders, brought our drinks, we were thoroughly enjoying the entertainment. It was getting close to 730 and our food hadn't arrived, ane parties who were seated after us were getting their food. I don't know what happened, maybe the waiter forgot to place our order? We had to go, so I asked the manager if I could just pay for the drinks, that we couldn't wait for the food because we would be late for the show. He said no charge for the drinks, and apologized. We were disappointed, and to say the least, starving. So my advice is to give yourselves plenty of time, and make sure your waiter knows you have to be somewhere.

Went there today with my 3 kids. My two little guys split a meal, my son had a hot dog and my aunt and I split nachos and a vanilla shake with water for all and it was $53. I felt ripped off!

It was the most fun I ever had at a restaurant! I loved the singing and I even sang along to some of them!

Friends had been here before and said it was neat with the servers singing. The food was not bad and the singing servers were very cool! The bad part was when the check came. We asked to split the check and the server said no problem. He was gone for what seemed like forever and finally came back with the checks. Everything looked fine except the tip. On the menu and the actual check it says for parties over 5 there will be 18% tip added. Well we were only 3 people and they added the tip. I really dislike this because I am a good tipper and would have left more had they not added it automatically. We left and the following day I was charged the correct amount but the other person in my party was not only charged for her amount but my amount as well. We went back in and the "manager" was very rude and was unwilling to fix the error. He said that it would have to be fixed later. We explained that we were leaving town and he acted as if he didnt give a rats behind and just kept trying to explain why it could have happened. When you have 2 charges on a card and are from thousands of miles away, youd like to have the issue taken care of.
