Good portion of food and freshly made

Easy to drive by but worth trying to find. Good portion sizes but not that cheap. My whole family liked the potatoe chips. Great old feel inside and pictures of historical Wichita. I loved the club sandwich and service was great. For families it is great they have a changing table in the restroom.

A friend and I recently had lunch there and the portions were huge for us eating only sandwiches and a side. We were able to take left overs home for another meal. The waitstaff was pleasant and well informed about the dishes that are served.

This restaurant has been here since my husband's high school days (longer ago than we might want to admit) and has been a standard place to go for a treat for many years. The marble counter is a classic, but the menu has kept up with the times. We stopped here for lunch on a visit to Old Town and... More

Been going here all my life. Anyone visiting Wichita must go to Old Mill! Great food, atmosphere, and best shakes/malts in town.

We went here as a friend suggested. It was great. Soda shop food and and true soda shop fashion syrup and carbonation added for each glass. It was fun to watch them make it. All 9 of us sat at the high top. All the food was good and they have a small gluten free menu. I had the green... More

As years pass some things stay the same and that is the Old Mill Tasty Shop. The good is hearty. The temptation is strong to have a real milkshake. There is no other place like it in Wichita and should not be missed.

This is a step back into time with an old fashioned soda fountain that you rarely see anymore. Don't be in a hurry and worry about the calories because they are there. This is a positively great place to take your grand-kids or friends for lunch or ice cream.

I love to go the Old Mill Tasty Shop when I am in town for lunch! The muffalleta is fabulous! I love the atmosphere and the fact that it is owned locally by a sole proprietor, and not a franchise. It is fun to watch the soda fountain in action, complete with hand-dipped, freshly-made shakes, made to order. The service... More

I ordered the blue plate special which was Chicken Enchiladas with Green Chili Sauce and beans and my husband ordered a Reuben with potato salad and a root beer float. The enchilada was very tasty and a good portion but the potato salad was very skimpy and his float had the smallest dip (1 dip) of Ice Cream in it.... More

This place was packed with locals when we arrived with our large group. Kids and adults enjoyed the food and shakes. Prices were average.
