Ellen's Stardust Diner is good fun. Every member of staff takes turns in belting out tunes and they give it everything they've got. The MC is entertaining and adds to the experience too. It is a tourist trap though so be prepared to pay over...More

I had such a fun time visiting Ellen’s it was full of wannabe broadway stars. You get to hear them sing the whole time! The food wasn’t great but the atmosphere made up for it.

Went here on a recommendation & once we were in it was a great night. The servers sing all kinds of stage show songs & others. Food was diner level, which was expected. The only negative was queuing for 2 hours to get seated.
