    Ideally, the drink order should be served prior to appetizers coming out. Especially when the drink order was put in first and then server returned for appetizer and meal order. And then plates etc from finished appetizers should be removed from the table, especially if meals are coming out.

    Overall, we really enjoyed this restaurant. Only downside was the drink menu. Not a lot of options. Should be some cooler options and some better cider options. The apple cider option was sour, and the only other one was cherry. I do not enjoy either one. Somersby ciders would be great, or some coolers that are not sodas. No beer in bottles and limited draft options. Other than that, most of our party enjoyed our food and we had a great time!

    The food was very good, and fun atmosphere. Unfortunately, service was slow and they messed up two of four orders, and then messed up the replacements/corrections to the meal and were slow to deliver those. Two guests were finished while other two guests were waiting. No offer to compensate for the delays or errors.

    So impressed with our first visit to Electric Diner. It was a post-dance recital celebration and they were so patient as our 7-person party trickled in. Our server, Karen, was absolutely fantastic with all of us - including two hangry kids. Can’t recommend it enough and we will be back.

    Absolutely fantastic! My husband and I took our 20 year old son and his girlfriend there for dinner! They adjusted our reservation to accommodate a fourth person. The food was so good and I’m picky! The 80’s ambiance was totally on point, and done so very tastefully! I have already recommended to someone! Thanks! We will return!👏

    Electric Diner was average. The food was okay and so was the service. The novelty of the “diner” and the neon lights were a cool touch. The milkshakes were good - but we probably won’t be going again.
