    Take your kids-- so fun

    Good diner type food, but the singing and the service is the best part - VERY talented staff sing and mess around while you eat. It was great to eat a meal with the family and NOT make any conversation! Just sit and be entertained and then have things to talk about when you are out of there. It is amazing to see who didn't make the Broadway cut, b/c these kids are talented! Have $$ ready for the bucket that helps with their music lessons and then order a big burger and watch your waiter bring it to you on a tray while he sings IN A MIC! SO fun!!!

    Better Burger at the Deli!

    Will make this short. We all got burgers for about $18 w/ fries. They all tasted like they were made the day before and then microwaved just before serving. Extremely dry and tasteless, rubbery. The bun and fries were good. Will not order here again as this is not the first time with the food quality.

    Only thing good is the Waitstaff

    So I went to Ellen's about 3 weeks ago for dinner with my Aunt and Uncle and well the only thing good about the place are the servers. THey are always smiling and having a good time singing while still providing great service to their guest. Our server was so talented and at one point in our meal she performed defying gravity from Wicked and we were floored. How these singers havent been discovered amazes me. The food was ok...nothing special and nothing you couldnt get at a regular diner but it was ok. The atmosphere was great seeing as the servers are always smiling and singing. So as I was saying the best thing about this place is the staff...everything else is not worth the time.

    Great Entertainment, mediocre food

    My out-of-town relatives LOVE this place, so every time they visit, we go here. I try not to be a snob about "touristy" places, but Ellen's is simply a tourist trap. The kids who perform there are actually quite talented, better than the lot on this season's "American Idol" - but still, it is basically a crowded, noisy theme restaurant. They cram so many people into such small tables - even when the restaurant is half empty. I know this is New York & we're used to close dining quarters, but at most places you don't have yentas bumping & jostling you at every turn, trying to get a photo of an aspiring star. The staff is appealing, although more attention is paid to singing than serving. The food... Bland, boring, & beside the point.

    Only ok

    I knew there would be singing but no by so many wanna-be's. The food is ok, nothing like other diners I visited. I particularly take exception to a bucket being passed around to fund "singing/acting lessons" etc. That's what a tip is for, you're just stinging customers twice. Wouldn't go back, wouldn't particularly recommend.

    Amazing Entertainment and Good Food

    The food isn't amazing, but the servers are! If you're looking for an entertaining meal, Stardust is the place. The waiters and waitresses are incredible singers waiting for their chance to star on Broadway. Honestly, some of these servers are far better than the stars on Broadway now.
