Fish meal was greasy

We had 2 three piece fish dinners on take out drive through. They must have rushed the fish as all 6 pieces were greasy and not quite done. Cole slaw was good as always. I would have rated lower, but this was our first unhappy experience.

Three in our group. Three ordered meal plus 2 ordered Carmel Cashew Sundae. Both sundaes had ice with cashews in ice cream, not on top, as shown in photo. Only found 2 cashews in whole sundae. Very misleading. Informed server and was told that is how it is done at this store. Seems new owners are cutting corners. Have seen... More

When we are wanting a hot juicy slop burger, we go to Culvers! Best burger in Owatonna! We have never had a bad meal there!

As a fast food place, it is above average. Fish is very good as is the roast beef dinner. During Lent they have walleye that can't be beat. I go there every Friday. After that they have Cod which is a good second to Walleye.

Never a doubt about stopping at Culvers for a full meal or just a custard treat. Love the variety and the quick service and decent pricing. Beats normal fast-serve restaurants and usually is friendly and reliable service. If in doubt... always stop at Culvers... wherever you see one!

It was fine, I felt like I was overpaying for basically the same food I can get at any other drive thru. So many great places to eat in owatonna, do yourself a favor and go elsewhere.

We live midway between the Culvers store in Owatonna, and the Austin, MN. locations. I have always enjoyed Culvers restaurants--they offer a variety of dishes (freshly cooked to order), home-made custard, and real malted milks. The burgers have the buns toasted--it's as close as you can get to an old-fashioned hamburger. The waiters bring your food out to you--and I'm... More

I like their burgers and custard but I am always frustrated that they rarely serve French onion soup.
