    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.

    Subpar

    Just don't. Awful awful food. 15 minutes to get a drink. Loud loud singing. Just don't.

    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.

    Just Don't

    It takes more than distributing menus and a bill to qualify as a restaurant. If you have any taste whatsoever, the experience will be torture from start to finish.

    Broadway Talent Plus Food

    Ellen's Diner is Amazing! Great Broadway talent (they're mostly between gigs on stage) serving excellent value food in NYC. Close to Times Square... convenient to all tourist attractions. I've lived in NYC and still appreciate this Diner. The wait staff is friendly with customers and helpful to each other. Don't plan this to be a 'quick' food stop - you'll get distracted and be late for your next destination. We had a wonderful brunch and wanted to stretch it out for as long as possible!

    I know better...

    I know better than to go to a place like this - it's an overpriced tourist trap close to Times Square. Although the concept is fun - the staff sings karaoke every once in a while, but the food is bad. The corned beef hash was inedible and literally looked like a pile of slop on the plate. My server was nice, but there was so much going on that it took her 10 minutes just to bring the check. In a city like NY, there are much better places to have breakfast!
