This is one of the restaurants on the Pride of America Cruise in Hawaii. It is called the Cadillac Diner….This totally retro 1950’s diner has Cadillac seats, plays 50’s Rock ‘n Roll and offers up a classic menu of burgers, fish ’n chips, potpies and Elvis’ peanut and bannana fried sandwitch. They also have the favorite in all diners and that is the strawberry or chocolate malt.

    This is really cool.. we have a similar place here in Newport Oregon .. called FlashBacks.. and at one end of the room is an old fashioned icecream parlor.

  • Thank you, it was fun…I had the burger and fries…It really brings back my teenage days….:))

    Awesome shot, Donna, What did you do bribe them before they opened to get this great shot? Or are all the people seasick from eating to many peanut butter and banana sandwiches… lol

  • You’re so funny Chuck…..It wasn’t open yet….So, I popped in and took the picture.

    How fun, Donna! did you eat here??? We occasionally have “50’s” night here and have burgers, fries and chocolate malts….we even have some old rock and roll cd’s! Love your photo of the gas pump.

  • We had fish & chips one night and hamburger& fries for lunch another day. It was fun…. We got to sit in the Cadilllac for the lunch. When I was a kid the diner was Denney’s and Thrifty Drug Store at the counter or the bowling alley. Good old cherry cokes with a burger.

    Did you just go to Hawaii on a cruise? This is a great shot. I love the era. Brings back lots of fun memories.

  • Yes, we just got back last Saturday…We where gone for a week. It’s been about 13 years. This time we flew over and then cruised 4 of the islands.
