This is a casual, original old-fashioned soda fountain, complete with soda jerks. It has been privately owned and operated by a local family for many years. Find it in the heart of downtown/Old Town. I have never had a bad meal here. The sandwiches are consistently great and made fresh to order. (Daily blue plate specials, served on a real... More

Great place for an old fashioned meal and especially if you enjoy good milk shakes made with real ice cream. I have only eaten here for lunch and it has been a great experience every time.

This spot hasn't changed in years. It's got a soda fountain and great wire icecream store chairs. The food is wonderful and you won't be sorry you stopped in. Try the wonderful chicken salad or come for breakfast. Menu is not huge but everything on it is deliciously prepared and quickly served. You may have to wait a bit for... More

Not knowing the area we stopped in to pretty much the first restaurant we came across and what a good choice it was. First the ambience was great I loved the marble lunch counter and the old fashioned milkshake machines as well as the original light fixtures overhead. The restaurant is a true throwback. I ordered the chicken salad sandwich... More

The ice box cabinet by the front door, old-fashioned soda fountain, and bustling wait-staff set the stage for the welcoming atmosphere of Old Mill Tasty Shop. I had the meatloaf special, my husband had a giant, smothered burrito, our daughter had a giant salad, and the grandsons enjoyed chocolate root beer, made to order. No one went away hungry!

Friends took us to lunch here as we were visiting Wichita. Great little, busy, throwback restaurant/luncheon spot. As befits the mid-west, very white breadish, but good food. I had the crab/seafood sandwich, while my wife had the half chicken salad sandwich, with a green salad. Well done, good size with adequate ingredients. However, I don't think you necessarily come for... More

This place is a little small and seating is limited but it is a good little place to grab a bite to eat. The sandwiches here are amazing and the shakes also. The staff is nice and friendly. Great little hidden gem in Wichita.

Got here just as they opened. About 15 min later you could tell this place was popular for locals. Lots of customers. Had a sandwich, which they specialize in. The burrito was not that great.

I had a great experience with my college age son for lunch here. This is such a cute nostalgic restaurant. The waitresses were so welcoming and kind. I loved the old fashioned soda fountain. The food was delicious. No wonder my WSU student raves about this place.
