I have ordered 3 different times here and each time they have managed to geth the burger order wrong. I tried to order the Deluxe Single cheeseburger and I either get a double cheese burfer without the deluxe or the double deluxe. For whatever reason I cant get the single deluxe.

I've driven by this restaurant 100 times and I finally tried it for the first time. Avoid the lunch hour if you're in a hurry, but otherwise the food and service are great!

This is my family's favorite restaurant. Its clean, quick food, and tastes good. We all get different things from chicken strips, to burgers, to ice cream. Yum.

Stopped in for Fish sandwiches & fries & was not impressed with the quality of the food. Service was really backed up. I had ordered Tartar sauce on the side. It was on the sandwich. Not a good batch of tartar sauce that day. The fish was "fishy" and greasy. Disappointed.

Typical Culver's which is to say one of the best fast food restaurants. The people are always well-trained and friendly. We had a complicated order and everything came out just as expected. I really enjoy ordering the side of green beans to eat something a little more healthier. Of course the custard at the end is always good.

No surprises here. Culvers is Culvers. But the staff was friendly and the restaurant was a 3 minute walk from our hotel. They won the dinner debate.

Whenever I return home for a visit I must have a pork tenderloin sandwich. My visit to culvers last week was perfect. From the perfectly fried sandwich to the perfect pickle ratio this visit was a perfect score!

One of the better sit down "fast food type" restarants around. Culvers has a huge menu that offers food for every age and awesome frozen custard. We eat their as a family quite often. Culver's burgers are excellent, fried chicken and fish dinners are really good and so much more. At certain times of the year they offer deep fried... More

The North Atlantic cod fish filet sandwich is excellent. I've eaten at many Culver's restaurants and almost always order their fish sandwich. It is the best I've had at any restaurant. I also usually order a chocolate malt with extra malt. It is also excellent. This particular Culver's restaurants is the same as all the others -- excellent food, fast... More

Loved this place. Frozen custard and hamburgers seem to be what they are known for. It was reasonably priced with good service. I appreciated the good, uplifting music that was being played while we ate.
