Fun ambiance and great food. It was definitely a 50s feel with everything from uniforms to a working jukebox. Good food and awesome dessert options

Don't miss out on the malts and desserts as they are fresh and always a tremendous variety of pies. The traditional meatloaf, sandwiches and roast beef and mashed potatoes are all good dinner options but indulge a little and get the dessert!

My elderly mother liked to treat my family with a meal at the 50's Grill and it was always fun. We love the malts and pies! Though my mom has passed away we continue to eat there regularly.

If you're looking a home cooked meal, this is the place. I love their burgers with homemade buns. The atmosphere takes you back to an era passed long ago. The staff is attentive and friendly.

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.
