This place is fun and refreshing for both kids and grownups, it has a sort of 50s atmosphere in one room, and glow in the dark 60s in another and so forth. They are laid back, seem to enjoy themselves here - was surprised when...More

We were recommended by friends in England who had visited previously. The outside was not what we expected but once inside, it takes you back to another world. It was busy and noisy but that's fine in a place like this. In the entrance, there...More

We are happy we decided to make the stop here for dinner. Kids loved the fun atmosphere, I loved the music, and we all enjoyed the games. The game credits and tickets are all on the same card which is simple and easy to use....More

What a lovely diner this this. Throw back decor and excellent food. Lots of music and dancing by the staff. Kids ranging from ages four to twelve loved the experience. Music can be loud.

"People can get a cheeseburger anywhere, ok? They come to the [Corvette Diner] for the atmosphere and the attitude." If you can get past the overly loud music, it's a fun experience, especially if you have kids. We sat in the room with the black...More

Hi Marco. We love your pets but due to a few different reasons we only allow service animals at the Corvette Diner. If your best friend is a service dog then by all means we hope to see you soon. The Corvette Diner Team

Rock n' Roll, burgers and shakes rule at the Corvette Diner! A '50s throw-back, with sassy waitresses in poodle skirts and bouffant hair-dos. It's more than just a place to eat, it's a destination.
