A lot of workers, mostly uninterested in their customers. Food is slow to come, wait people disappear while talking with their fellow employees.

We came to Nifty Fifty's on a Saturday before we headed to the Philadelphia Flower Show and it was nothing less than amazing! We arrived at about 5:00 pm and was seated about 30-45 minutes later. It was a long wait but well worth it!...More

I ate here twice during my eight day work trip to Philly. Delicious soda. Cannot say enough about how delicious the vanilla Cola was. I ate plain fries, and a plain bacon cheeseburger both times. Service was always fast, friendly, and the food was delicious.

We had omelettes, pancake and waffles. It was all tasty and better than expected. We loved the restaurant atmosphere and the service. We had to wait in line for ten minutes to get a table, glad we waited

I love the milkshake selections. The food is all good diner quality. Can be very busy at times. Fairly clean but I am OCD so what I think might not be fair. Fries seemed a little greasy. The 50s theme makes this place real.
