“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

A visit to St. Louis has to include a visit to Crown Candy. The BLT is the largest, best tasting BLT you have ever had. Then top off your meal with a great ice cream sundae or a shake. This place was on Food TV and has a unique shake challenge. Great candy to purchase too. A definite must see.

“Not worth it.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Small dingy restaurant that usually has a a long wait on the weekends. Place needs a deep cleaning to say the least, restrooms are plain nasty.

“Moms day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

My daughters take me on an outing for mothers day. It was belated this year. I chose crown candy kitchen. I always heard so much about it, so I wanted to check it out. The atmosphere was very nostalgic. The food was so bad for you and every bite was to die for. The portions are huge and incredible. No wonder there is a line.

“Dad's B-day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The food is fantastic. Portions are large. Get a milkshake it ends up being like 2 for the price of one. Be prepared to wait for your table. It is worth the wait but the seating is very limited.

“A must visit while in St. Louis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It is a great old time place - that either takes you back or shows you what it was like to have a local ice shop. You can just imagine how great the place would have been back in the day. The hot fudge is amazing on whatever you put it on. My kids love the shakes - and it will definately fill you up because you get the silver shake cup so it is more than one serving. Delicious! If you are looking for healthy gourmet food, this is not your place. This is a treat for sure.
