Ellie’s 50’s Style Diner (Delray Beach)

Posted on July 15th, 2008 · American Breakfast Delray Beach


*****  Ellie’s 50’s Style Diner, 2410 North Federal Highway, Delray Beach, Florida 33483 (561) 276-1570.

Ellie’s name says it all…a 1950’s diner. It’s not a real 1950’s relic, but when you are inside you’ll really enjoy the fountain-counter, booth seating, formica tables, juke box and black and white checkerboard floor…not to mention a full diner menu that is loaded with appetizers, soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches, meat-fish-chicken entrees…there also plenty of ice cream, pies and cakes.



Ellie’s food is DINER FOOD…This is not a gourmet restaurant. Over the years, I have eaten at Ellie’s something like 10 times. Great place for a greasy burger (meant as a compliment) and french fries…tuna fish on rye toast…meatloaf…hopefully you get the picture.

Take a look at Ellie’s website at for menu/pricing/and a virtual tour of the joint.

By the way, attached to the “diner” is a full catering facility…I have been to two catered affairs, one was a 1950’s themed  50th birthday party for 100 and the other was a wedding for something like 150 and both parties were sensational.

Ellie’s does breakfast, lunch and dinner…Sunday-Thursday 8am-9pm and Friday-Saturday 8am-10pm.

If you wear saddle shoes you will look real stupid…but tee shirt/shorts will be just fine.

    This evening for $30 tax and tip included, Ellie had a buffet dinner and had a 90 minute show starrring neil Zirconia a Neil Diamond impersonator. the buffet was just okay. In this type of setting you don’t expect food to be too great. The show was excellent. You’d swear that the guy is the real Neil Diamond voice wise. He looks to be about 45 years old and looks a little like the real McCoy. Check the newspapers as Neil Zirconia works all over South Florida. The next time he is appearing somewhere I’d recommend going to see him.

      We have had Zirconia twice at Woodfield Country Club. Both times he was backed by the Whitestone Band and he put on a terrific show.

    Every so often in their catering hall they have shows with a buffet dinner. Check the schedule, great deal.

    think this place needs a ‘fix up’ seems very run down and tacky. . . food is good but the atmosphere is not

    Good diner food. Every so often they have a band, show or tribute artist.
