Fodor's Expert Review Ellen's Stardust Diner

$$ Midtown West American

If you haven't had enough Broadway singing and dancing, you'll get a kick out of Ellen's, a retro, 1950s-style diner, complete with a singing waitstaff. The menu focuses on all-American classics like meat loaf and chicken potpie, and the waiters and waitresses serenading you on roller skates possess fittingly Broadway-caliber talent. It's the kind of over-the-top family fun you'd expect from the Times Square location, so don't expect a sophisticated—or quiet—dining experience.
