So happy to return to inside eating, all protocols in place. Three stars are for our friendly and attentive server. Otherwise, one or two stars at best. What a disappointing breakfast. No orange juice available, home fries were soggy and lukewarm, and the famous crispy...More

Can’t be beat! Classic flavors done right! As well as the classic “Bernice Cheese Burger”. A local legend. Finish with a malted milkshake and it’s a blast from the past!

(My sons 5 star review: it's tasty, it's cheap and they have the best ice cream in the world) All of that sounds great, I read Shady Glen Dairy Store is one of the top 100 burgers in the U.S. of A. That's a bold...More

Shady Glen has been around forever and is loved by locals. Known for their cheeseburgers , icecream and fried cheese, its almost always busy. The restaurant feels like throw back in time.

If you go to Shady Glen you must try their cheeseburgers. The cheese is nothing like you’ve had before. And the added bonus is their homemade ice cream for dessert.

PROS *Good cheeseburger. *Presentation is unique due to the way the cheese melts upwards. I’d never seen that before. CONS *Feels like a one time thing. You drive out of your way to get this burger one time, but I doubt I’ll ever go again.

A blast from the past , always clean staff super friendly and if you haven’t you have to have the cheeseburger and then ice cream for desert. They only take cash but atm on site

My wife and I went here recently with two friends who are local. I had heard about the restaurant and wanted to try it (it looks good!). We all ordered the cheeseburger, which is an experience in itself, with the overlapping cheese becoming fried on...More

This restaurant is truly a throw back to the 50's - booths and counter seating. Menus are posted on the walls. The workers are in uniforms typical of that time. Service is fast and efficient and servers are attentive. Their ice cream is the best...More
