We selected this based on Trip Advisor reviews; but could not have been more disappointed. Just stopped for lunch and wanted some place for a sandwich and soup that had a little charm. This place is suppose to be historic, but not at all impressive, with very little atmosphere. The sandwiches were dry and bland, the soup was way too... More

We stopped in for a few drinks and dinner before a show at the Barter. We had wanted the steak salad but they were out - no biggie. I opted instead for a grilled chicken salad with their house vinaigrette and my husband got a sandwich. Both were good. We got the brownie with ice cream special dessert and it... More

Such a friendly (Sarah and Jane are such fun servers too!) and memorable place to have lunch in this town. Try the fried bologna sandwiches and don't leave town without their trying their malts, shakes or floats!

This is a great place for lunch. Very popular with locals. I had a sandwich and fries and both were excellent. Informal and reasonable pricing.

We went to Ellis Soda Shoppe and Grill based on the recommendation of the friends we had come to visit and I guess it was okay. There was six of us and they had a difficult time figuring out how to maneuver two tables together to make it accessible to us. Finally, they succeeded. Our drink orders were rapidly taken... More

We visit this soda shop every time we are in town visiting family and are never disappointed. Located in the actual building that once housed the town pharmacy, it still retains plenty of memorabilia and family relics to look at. The food is delicious. We all enjoyed our orders. You can't beat their old fashioned sodas and floats! A great... More

This is a unique eatery: just like the olden days of soda fountains & drug store food. Service here is fast & friendly and the ice cream desserts are superb! Food quality is excellent with good variety of choices, incl. side options. I esp. like that the food arrives at the table "hot from the kitchen!" A real unique treat... More
