Quaint dining experience

Old soda fountain actually used - charming. Menu offers variety to select from. The Green Chili soup was amazing - highly recommend it. Staff is always friendly & helpful. Nice, quiet atmosphere.

I really wish that I had read the reviews before eating here! Great, old style joint and pretty decent food. Cons: The credit/debit card machine was broken and they were manually writing out everyone's credit card number, information and phone number on a legal pad. No way in hell would I give that information! You have to walk through the... More

Stopped off here for some ice cream while in the area. It has a cool old time soda fountain ambiance. If looking for something different this is the spot.

A step back in time with the booths and marble soda fountain. A nice variety on on the menu from lunch specials to malts to Mexican. I come often and have always enjoyed the food and the atmosphere

Stopped in close to closing time and they were very kind and welcoming and said, "Come on in!" Great atmosphere, but bench seat we sat in needs more stuffing. Not comfortable. We came just for an after dinner malt and it was delicious. Restrooms oddly located to back of building, through the kitchen area.

The food was incredible and the service unbeatable. Old Mill Tasty Shop has a very nostalgic feel! Haven't tried their shakes yet, but will definitely be returning soon to do so

Old Mill Tasty Shop was represented at the VIP party at Botanica Illuminations and their food offerings were the hit of the function (at least as reviewed by our table). Their white bean chili, cornbread, and chicken salad sandwiches were exceptional. Their food was so good that we ordered takeaway food from them to share with family during recent Christmas... More

This is a great spot to grab a bite in downtown Wichita. Good sandwiches excellent specials. Didn't try the ice cream but that looked good too. When I was there I had the burrito smothered in green chilli. It was very good.

If you want great, freshly prepared food in a nostalgic setting, you have to visit. Lunch is busy so get there by 11:45 or expect to wait. The chicken salad sandwich was great, and the chocolate shake and carrot cake were a bonus! One of a kind!
