This is a walk up old timey drive-in. The service is great and the food even better. I had the cheese burger with fries. They have sodas with cherry syrup like an old fountain.

"Old Style", with young ladies in swirly skirts, big hamburgers, good malts and decent seating. Seating is outside, but it's a great place to take the grandparents and the kids. On weekends, everyone goes there, so take your places and settle in. It may take a bit, but the food is terrific. And there's even Mini-Golf. Love this place.

We did some hiking at Interstate State Park and came here for a little bite to eat. We just got appetizers - boneless wings which were the size of mini corn dogs, cheese curds and onion rings. We all ordered the root beer, which this place is known for. I didn't particularly care for it. It was really sweet and... More

Stopped in with a friend on 7/18/15. It is a retro drive in restaurant with car service. One can also dine on one of the outdoor tables. The hamburger, fries, and onion rings were excellent along with the large mug of root beer. If you are looking for a nice place to get some quick food in a retro setting,... More

We stopped with our boys 5 and 11 for dinner on a Friday night. The place was busy but we were able to sit at the counter. We had good service and the staff was really friendly and very busy. Our food came pretty quickly and the burgers were great. The root beer was excellent. It's a great little gathering... More

The girls wear poodle skirts. The music was great. Food is a drive in classic!!:) You could play miniature golf next door or take a stroll along the river. Very enjoyable.
