    Very touristy but totally fun…like walking into a show tune from the 1950’s with singing waiters. If only the food were as enjoyable as the atmosphere.

    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.

    Don't come here if you are hungry, have a hangover or cannot tolerate egomania. Come here if you are lonely and want to escape the voices in your head or if you want to breakup with someone come here.

    For those saying it is overpriced, there is a McDonald's and Olive Garden across Broadway. For the rest of us, this is the best, most fun spot near Times Square.

    If you like show tunes, visit the Stardust Diner. The waiters sing and dance as they serve you your food. Stop by before you see a Broadway show.
