If you want breakfast to wake you up, then this is the place to be, the atmosphere here beats any place you have been or likely to go too. this is the home of the singing waiters and it really sets you up for the day. The food served is more than tasteful and it is service with a smile.

If you indulge in guilty pleasure shows that involves singing, then this is the place for you! Food is great w/ large portions-very filling. The employees dazzle you with their amazing voices and they sing anything.

Got into NYC late in the afternoon and found this place close to the Sheraton Times Square for dinner. Old school Diner theme with 'singing' servers. Had a great experience. They also serve breakfast and lunch.

Finally got there for breakfast on our last day. Arrived 0830 and only waited a few minutes - was well attended by our waitress who was also a fantastic singer. We all had pancakes, which were filling - very thick and fluffy, with bacon, syrup etc... Have never been entertained at breakfast before and this really was fantastic, only one... More

We really had a great time here. The vibe and the service was excellent!!! We were a group of 4 with a toddler and we really felt at home here. We ordered 3 burgers and one Philly cheese steak - personally I felt the burger was a bit dry and the steak was not like a genuine Philly steak (duh,... More

The food was very average burger very undercooked and raw despite asking for medium to well done, tasty milkshakes. Music and entertainment was pretty good initially but very loud, irritating after a while. Tables are far to crammed you have to pull the table out to sit down, your sat on the laps of people next to you. Slightly cringing... More

I loved the singing and positive energy in this place! Our meal arrived promptly but I wouldn't have minded waiting as the singing was amazing, and they encouraged patrons to sing along. Service was great as well. I have read other reviews about the space. It is cramped! If you are in one particular area, they pull the table out... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
