    Their waitstaffs a who can sing very well. Try their crispy chicken wing and Smores shake and burger with mushroom. Come early or be prepared to Q for dinner. Lunch is good because Q is shorter.

    I got a spicy crispy chicken sandwich. It was pretty tasty! The spicy sauce they bring is sort of like buffalo sauce. Definitely get a milkshake for dessert! Zech was a great server!

    The food is hit or miss here but the entertainment is A++. Great restaurant for any theater lover. The Chicken Pot Pie is the best thing I've tried on the menu so far.

    This place is amazing. And so fun. The waiters and waitresses are aspiring broadway performers and sing while they wait on you. Great family atmosphere!! Arrive early or expect to wait in long lines.

    Touristy but well worth the visit. Enjoy great live music by your server, ask them to autograph your bill so you can say 'you knew them when...' Go for late lunch or early dinner, around 4 to beat the Read more

    Great place to eat following a Broadway play. I went after seeing Rent and it was very entertaining, to say the least. I went with the grilled cheese.

    The waitstaff's performing show tunes is worth the wait and the food is just ok. But you should come for the entertainment. I will come back every time after or before I see a show on broadway

    The desserts are awesome we had the Red Velvet cake and the Rainbow cookie sundae. The next table was raving about the whoopee pies. We had pasta dishes which were surprisingly good. Singers R GREAT

    Touristy but in a good way. If you come as part of class trip for lunch, I suggest getting the grilled chicken sandwich or Caesar salad. Stay away from the chicken strips or pasta pommodora w chicken,

    The food was alright but the vibe was amazing. P.S. If you tweet them you can see your tweet on the TVs in the diner. Now there's a picture of me with a Shrek backpack that will appear there for a bit

    We love Ellen's! Come here every time we visit New York. It is loud but SO much fun. The wait staff are all Broadway-hopefuls and they make the experience totally worth it.

    Very touristy spot. The singers are incredible! They are very talented and know how to put on a show while waiting tables :) but be ready to wait in line at the door.

    FUN! Great family friendly entertainment. Mediocre food, but I can overlook that when my 9 year old could barely stop grinning or singing along to the songs. Will definitely return next time in NYC!

    The wait staff sing songs while you eat. The prices are not to expensive but it's Manhattan. My family didn't mind the prices and the singing was very good. I'll go again for sure.

    There's always a line out the door. Go for breakfast when it's not as crowded. Great place to take the kids for breakfast and Broadway show tunes.

    If you can manage it, endeavor to sit on the first floor of this place. The sound of the singing wait staff tends to get washed out on the second floor.

    The food is pretty good but the atmosphere is why to go. If you like Broadway show tunes, you will love Ellen's. Go for breakfast and enjoy the show.

    Come here for the entertainment, not the food. Very touristy but worth the visit. The food is forgettable, the singing waiting staff is not. Had the Walter Cronkite waygu beef burger and carrot cake.

    If you interaction with the singers stay on the main floor. If you just want to be an observer and get a good view go upstairs and look down from the balcony.

    If you can, try to request a table downstairs or if upstairs, along the railing overlooking the downstairs area. Along the wall upstairs, we couldn't see a lot of what was going on.
