If you want to grab a quick slice of pizza and a milkshake, this is a great little place to stop. They even had healthy menu choice items, which I greatly appreciated!

It is said you never get a second chance to make a first impression. We went in to The Soda Fountain for a malted and maybe a cone. We walked up to the counter which was covered in menus and dirty dishes. The guy behind the counter was obviously overwhelmed trying to fill orders, wait on counter customers, settle receipts,...

I love a good, authentic root beer float, and Soda Fountain makes them perfectly. All of their ice creams are great! My favorite meal is the Chef's Salad, it's not too big, not too small, and has great toppings. My son loves the pizza slices. Hubs enjoys the amazing sandwiches and occasionally the hot dogs.

My family and I have been coming here since 2009. When we first found it, we were thrilled. We loved the ice cream and the great service that felt like family. The owner used to come visit tables and give out wooden nickels. Since then, we are still a fan of the ice cream but the service has turned for... More

Great enormous Italian hero sandwich in a nice, casual old diner. Didn't try the ice cream and soda fountain dishes but they looked good and reminded me of 1950s fountain fare.

We were visiting the area from Miami and stopped in for lunch. The lasagna and spaghetti/meatballs we ordered was delicious. Service was great and the staff was friendly and made you feel really welcomed. Freddie you were a joy to meet. We will definitely stop and eat here again the next time we are in Venice.

Like stepping back in time. An authentic old fashioned soda fountain serving a wide variety of sundaes, ice cream sodas and malts. Also serving New York style thin crust hand-tossed pizza as well as delicious sandwiches and salads. There's something for everyone at The Soda Fountain.
