We ate here as a family of 4 with a tween and teen one night on our vacation in San Diego. Though quite loud, it was a fun atmosphere with music, balloon animals, hats, and straw hairdos. The restaurant tries very hard to make it...More

We were here for a birthday and first they lost the reservation. Then the service was only so so. Still overall the bartender saved it for them. She was personable and having fun. Still very crowded so I guess you get what you see. Over...More

Visiting San Diego and our young grandchildren, family recommended the Corvette Diner to us. We took our three year old granddaughter for dinner and some fun in the game room. The atmosphere was very entertaining with a black light room and a 50's diner room...More

Absolutely fantastic place! The atmosphere was brilliant, really cool place. I always find with these places the food is usually average and it's the decor that's the attraction but this place really debunks that, the food was excellent, I had the Rory burger and it...More

We had absolutely no idea what was in store when we elected to drop in to the Corvette Diner. The decor, hoop skirts, DJ, dancing waitresses and smiles made our afternoon. We're coming back for the party, shakes and sundaes next time!

We had a birthday celebration for a 12 year old here. The food was good, as was the service. The server had fun with the birthday-girl, creating a hat for her out of straws and an a cook's cap. It would be a little loud...More

This place is hopping with music, with enthusiasm, with good food. The atmosphere is very cool with waitresses with bobby socks and hairdos from the 50s and 60s. There were at least 2 birthday celebrations going on while we were there. Waitresses also do hairdos...More

This is definitely a fun family restaurant but not a place to go if you have a headache. My hubby wasn't impressed with the noise level, but I had warned him. Our 2 teenage daughters and I loved it. I wasn't impressed with the Garbage...More

They certainly cater to the kids. Great place for birthdays. Food is good and one of the last places I can get a good sloppy Joe. Friendly staff and reasonable prices and a next door arcade makes this great

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.
