Great place- just too crowded on weekends.

We really love the Pop Shop. All the food is good. Certainly not a romantic spot, as it's mostly families- but it's good old fashioned food and ice cream. Try the "Eldridge". You'll love it!

Unfortunately, I don't get here too often, but when I do , I always enjoy it:) A great place with great service! They even have fun ideas for children in mind!

Kids love this place because there is lots of the food that they go for. Parents love it because the kids are happy, the decor takes you back even beyond Grandma's era, and the food is unexpectedly sophisticated for a place that seems kid-oriented. I especially enjoy the salads, chopped or not: the smoked salmon with goat cheese, capers and... More

Busy Saturday night and we had to wait, but they took cell number and called when ready. Collingswood is nice to walk around. Great service, really nice server - Julia. Food was good - lots of choices, known for grilled cheese. I had cheddar, portabello, spinach, caramelized onions - very tasty! If we hadn't been stuffed, would have had ice... More

Visited with my GF after rave reviews from her friends. Not disappointed at all. Small wait for a table as it was packed with customers - usually a good sign! Got seated in a newly acquired extension around the back of the restaurant - a bit sparsely populated when we were there and I'd rather have sat in the much... More

As stated by other reviewers this place is like a 50's era soda shop, great concept. This definitely is a place parents bring their kids and the noise level says it all. Menu is vast, nothing gourmet you understand but what we had was very good. Perhaps a smaller menu would result in a better quality of food. Service was... More

This little place is an awesome place for children and adults to eat.They have any kind so fried cheese sandwich.I had a fried grilled sandwich with pickles on it it was so yummy.Nothing on menu is plain.On vacation this is the time to try something difference.It is like the PoP or Malt Shops of the 60's.

I take my god daughter here when she is in town. She loves it here. She's 8. The food is decent comfort food but it's not fine dining by any means. I love tomato soup in general but do not like it here- despite the goldfish crackers. The grilled cheese sandwiches are the way to go. Children enjoy the pancakes... More
