I am a big fan of the Culver's chain of resturants and was very happy to find out that there is one very close to my new apartment. i love the fries and of course the frozen yogurt, but I have been the most impressed with the service. The staff members are always very polite and respectful. Some drive-thru workers... More

Dined on a Saturday night around 6 pm. Crowded with families and teens. The gal at the register struggled with the order which I had to repeat a couple of times. She got it correct because I checked the receipt but the person who filled the order gave us two orders of cheese curds instead of one onion ring and... More

always great food and great selection of food. Have had butter burgers, chicken strips, rubien sandwiches, all was great. Especially enjoy French fries, onion rings, and cheese curds. Ice cream custard, as a sundae, shake, or concrete mixer is always a favorite. Have only had one thing that I don't like and that is tenderloins only because Iowa has some... More

We love Culvers...We go to Culvers all the time and usually have no problems. But this Culvers served me a very burnt (black toast) patty melt. I found it funny just the one side was burnt and it was served to me with the unburned side up, like I wouldnt notice! I am usually pretty forgiving, but then they forgot... More

Was impressed with the menu items. Of course it is fast food, but the quality for fast food is pretty good. They have the crinkle cut fries which are my favorite.

Great burger and fries. Service is quick and they bring the food to your table. Clean spacious and airy dining area. Staff is super friendly. They have their own brand of root beer that is the bomb. Ice cream desserts are big and delicious. You can get ice cream or frozen yogurt. They also do plate lunches like chicken and... More
