We've been here several times for dinner when we just wanted something simple i.e. grilled cheese or salad or hot dogs or ice cream. It's a great place for families to go that's not terribly expensive. According to one 11 year old I know quite well, the kids mac and cheese or kids cheesesteak are very goid and the kids... More

Great burgers but the ice cream is really the best part. We love the homemade peanut butter sauce and whipped cream. A great place to take kids.

My 5 year old Grandson wanted to go there for a special treat. His parents had only been there once before. It is not a bargain. When they seated us, I realized that my feet were sticking to the floor. Not a good sign. If the floor is that dirty, I wondered what the kitchen is like. A children's' cheeseburger,... More

We had just arrived in Media, Pa. We are visiting with our grandchildren who are five and two. They love the hot dogs and mac and cheese. The sandwiches we had were very good and so was the ice cream. Super place for families with little kids.

Old style fountain and soda counter. The service team is a little disorganized and slow. The menu is adequate. It is probably a fun place for young families.

This is the greatest place to go with young kids. There is a huge chalkboard, child size tables and chairs, and several tv's. Only gave it three stars because their food is mediocre. The good side of average, but would be better if they could step it up a notch!! Prices are good and ice cream is yummy!

We frequent this restaurant 2-3 times a month with our 2 1/2 year old. This is THE spot in media to take your family if your children are 10 and under. The staff is patient, friendly and personable. In terms of food, this is a non-alcoholic environment that caters to a high-carb, high-kiddie food clientele. They have every burger, French... More

Front Street fountain is a great place for families. It has a huge chalkboard for kids and even has kids tables. All kids love it. The food is just like an old fashioned soda fountain. Food is so good. I had grilled cheese and sweet potato fries. The sweet potato fries were one of the best!

We love eating at The Front Street Fountain. There is no other restaurant like it in the Media Area. A large soda fountain area, with a model train running above the fountain greats you when you enter, kids love seeing that. This restaurant has the makings for a pleasant weekday lunch away from the office or home or a wonderful... More
