Ellens Stardust Diner
This restaurant offers authentic American fare in what is known as the vortex of tourist-friendly entertainment, Times Square. In the true style of diner hangouts, the menu features a little bit of everything from hamburgers and turkey sandwiches to Greek salads and falafel. Most diners really enjoy the homemade ice cream, and there are a number of freshly baked pastries from which to choose. Service is fast, so grab a bite if you are on the run. Another attraction is the singing waitstaff which keeps patrons entertained from start to finish.
i loved it, the singing was amazing they are a group of very talented people!they madde us feel very welcome, so much so we even made a sencond trip on a three day holiday. even though they were packed they managed to fit us in. the food arrived quickley and was delicious! they involve the whole diner in their antics and you can just never get bored in there...simply impossible to ever go to a better all singing all dancing diner!
I've been to NYC twice, each time to celebrate one of my kids' 21st birthdays. We stumbled on this diner during the first trip in May 2003 and had an absolute blast. The ambiance was perfect for a girls' night on the town when you aren't into the party scene.
It is a very busy place, but that's part of the fun. The waitstaff is not only musically talented, but they are professional servers too, and their enthusiasm was obvious on both fronts.
Our second trip was in March 2005, when it was very cold outside, so tables near the entrance got a blast of cold air whenever someone entered or exited.
Every time I hear of someone visiting NYC, I recommend that they experience Ellen's Stardust Diner, because it is part of the wonderful memories we have of our NYC trips. (It was also the only duplication of adventures between the two trips ... I made a point of creating unique experiences for each of the girls on these memory making journeys ... I guess that speaks volumes about how much fun we had!)
My boyfriend and I ate there on Monday, April 25th, and thought the world of the restaurant. We'd never been to a place as this before & with all of the entertaining waitstaff (singing, dancing, joking, and having a great time!), we felt so welcomed! It's too bad the boss was there - he would have ruined it for everyone if they all knew how he was. I am surprised no one else saw how obnoxious he was with his waitstaff. NEW BOSS PLEASE!!! Let them 'kids' do their job and ENTERTAIN. Without the rudeness of the boss, the restaurant was PERFECT! Waitstaff: GIVE YOURSELF PROPS FOR BEING SO PROFESSIONALLY ENTERTAINING!
