When we want to go somewhere fun and special, we go here. The lobby is as if you stepped back in time. The 50's jukebox, and even a B/W TV. I like to show my G'daughter this is what my Livingroom looked like when I was a girl. The food is wonderful and always fresh pie and deserts with ice... More

I had the bacon cheeseburger with fries and a strawberry malt. The burger was a nice big size and cooked perfectly medium rare to my request. The fries were delicious. The malt was tasty and thick, even requiring a stir before I could pour it from the mixing cup into the glass. The total for my meal was about $12... More

Everyone seems to speak highly of the 50's Grill but I don't understand why. The food is good, but not great. The restaurant is not the nicest one in town (Arby's inside looks better). The service is good and efficient but not outstanding. This restaurant has been around forever. My son worked there over 20-years ago. So what brings me... More

My wife and I checked Tripadvisor for a good spot in Brooklyn Center as we were there for the evening. The place is great, attentive waitresses in poodle skirts, private booths and real comfort food. I was going to fast the next day for medical tests so I went big and chose the turkey dinner, ti was great, close to... More

We were very pleased with the food and service at the 50's Grill in Brooklyn Center. I had a wonderful meatloaf with potatoes and gravy, just like home. The bakery is impressive and the pie was delicious. The beer selection was adequate and we both had a wonderful time enjoying our dinner.

No one can beat these at the 50's Grill. I have to say that the service is a little slower that when we first started going to the restaurant, but not so bad that we will quit going. We usually aren't in a hurry. Shakes are good, too. Would recommend it to anyone. Like the 50's decorating and music also.... More

We visited here for the fist time this afternoon. The atmosphere is very 50's and the music suits the theme. Kelly was a great server.The servers all wear poodle skirts and look the theme. I ordered the chicken pot pie on the recommendation my husband's cousin. It was very delicious, but the portion was VERY small for what you pay... More

The food has a 50's flavor and the waitress wear poodle skirts. The malts are to die for, especially the butter brickle and hot fudge. With the hamburgers you have a choice of sides including salads. The jukebox plays great music from the era.
