Great sandwiches

Go back in time when eating at this place. It has very little seating and most of it is counter. Had a cheeseburger and fries burger was done well and fries were perfect nice and crispy. Had a couple of scoops of ice cream with a few mix ins. Ice cream was made on a marble top counter and was... read more

Stopped in for lunch burgers, wraps, salads, sandwiches and all kinds of ice cream items I had a burger and fries both were good. Fries were crispy and burger was juicy. Also had a chocolate malt that was also very good.

This is a fun, old fashioned soda shop. If you want food, table service can be very slow. The food is good but basic (burgers and sandwiches). But the real reason to come is the feel of the place. They have a soda counter and nearly unlimited custard flavor combinations. You can watch them mix the flavors behind the counter.... More

We love the historic atmosphere of the malt shop. The great food and ice cream make Ferch's a 'must have' when we visit Milwaukee.

If you want to step back in time and have an absolutely delicious malt and hamburger this is the place to go. The counter, the booths, remind one of Happy Days. It is a little expensive but worth every cent. Even it's location in the Greendale Village center will add to the nostalgia of your visit. Take time to walk... More

Fetch's is literally the icing on the cake of a visit to the quaint Old Village of Greenfield! The atmosphere is that of an old-time malt shoppe. I created my favorite nutty coconut by combining pecans & coconut with vanilla ice cream. YUM!

Ferch's is a little pricey, but you can't beat the ambience of an ice cream parlor that's been in the same location since the late 1930s. Their marble top custard can be mixed with whatever flavors and add-ins that you can think of. The sheer variety of liquid flavorings alone is amazing! Their burgers, hot dogs, and wraps are also...

The place is a real throw back to the old times. A great place to have a quick meal or a better place to have a malt or a nice cream. The place is really popular on warm nights, but it is worth the wait. I've never seen a wider variety of ice cream flavor and toppings. So many different... More

We went here with friends and kids last week. Food was good, but I would like to point out a flaw of a possible manager or owner. The young girl ringing us up had a computer glitch on her register. It froze up. She was trying to tell this to the lady next to her on the other register but... More
