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.

After an afternoon of doctor's appointments, we wanted to treat our toddler to some ice cream, and decided to go to Culver's for frozen custard instead. As always, it was delicious! He got Nerds on his, we had the special flavor of the day (today's was cherry pecan), and it was the perfect treat!

I am a big fan of the Culver's chain of resturants and was very happy to find out that there is one very close to my new apartment. i love the fries and of course the frozen yogurt, but I have been the most impressed with the service. The staff members are always very polite and respectful. Some drive-thru workers... More

Dined on a Saturday night around 6 pm. Crowded with families and teens. The gal at the register struggled with the order which I had to repeat a couple of times. She got it correct because I checked the receipt but the person who filled the order gave us two orders of cheese curds instead of one onion ring and... More

always great food and great selection of food. Have had butter burgers, chicken strips, rubien sandwiches, all was great. Especially enjoy French fries, onion rings, and cheese curds. Ice cream custard, as a sundae, shake, or concrete mixer is always a favorite. Have only had one thing that I don't like and that is tenderloins only because Iowa has some... More
