“Nostalgia and good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

Good prices, home style menu choices. Comfort food for sure. Milk shakes that are hand made, good soup, grilled cheese , serious burgers, great breakfasts. I have been there about 4 times now. I could go on... its your drug store style soda fountain from the 50's / 60's. Like going back in time. A must see if you are in the area. I think they are closed on Sunday (but the antique portion of the place is open still... bring your camera and take some pictures when the restaurant is not open, there aren't many places like this left.

“Best Burgers and Shakes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2011

This small, 50 style counter dinner has the best burgers in Western Maryland. I always ask for a fried egg on top and fried whole mushrooms on the side. Shakes are huge and excellent.

“Fun, campy place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2011

All 10 in our group managed to find seats at the 1950s style counter in this unusual breakfast/lunch place, even though the place was hopping even at 1:30 pm on a weekday. The restaurant is part of a large consignment antiques store. The owner of the restaurant, Dottie, waited on us herself. She's a character with a bit of a NYC attitude about her. She works hard but hams it up for the customers. The veggie soup was really good. Mushroom Swiss burgers were also good. The shakes, made with hand-dipped ice cream are really something and large. Plan on splitting one. Oakland is a quaint little town. Plan on spending a few hours poking around town to walk off your milkshake.
