Went to a kids bday party. We had to wait so long to be seated. Kids were happy. Parents not so happy with the food. Daughter had stomach issues all night long.

The Corvette Diner is just fun! Live dj plating oldies and perfect themes areas to eat in. Staff very entertaining. Food is average. Kids love their shakes. Great for celebrating special days.

Slip back into the 50's and 60's at the Corvette Diner. Wonderful food and the wait staff also does a little performance. Ask for Huey's table, great waiter with an over the top personality. He was so much fun. Enjoy!!

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.
