Our family loved this place! 1. We were seated amongst the cool neon lighted tables, perfect for if you have anything white which will glow, you can also use your phone light to do cool drawings on the table, fades after 30 seconds or so but kids loved that! 2. The server made our kids cool straw head decorations that... More

Could not get in on Saturday night, so we went to lunch on Monday. What a fun sight to see. Food was Delicious!! Staff friendly and smiling A lot to see on the walls. Brings back fond memories of the 50's and 60's, my kind of era. What a happy place. A must see Vet in the lobby.

The food came out cold wasn't very good. Great place for kids mine loved the arcade and the staff dressed up and danced to 50's music, a bit on the loud side so if your taking an elderly person who can't handle loud noise this wouldn't be the place for them.

I miss the original Corvettes. I grew up with it... this one is too big and to much of a perfectly designed attraction. Sorry Cohen's ... this one does not strike a cord withy any longer.

It's so hard to find a place you can go with with friend and all our kids where we can have drink! They have a full bar, craft beers and more than enough to keep the kids as happy as can be. It's the perfect combination!

We ate lunch here because I love cars - the food and atmosphere are as wonderful as the Corvette in the lobby! Decorations were also reminiscent of my childhood. The special was not only good, there was enough food for two meals. The best part of the meal, however, was the "real" milkshake - delivered complete with the metal cup... More

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.
