Free parking. Greeted warmly by friendly hostess. Seated immediately. Decorated like a 50's malt shop. Attentive servers are dressed in "Bobby sock" style from that era. Malt shop menu items including daily specials, ice cream beverages and pies. I especially have enjoyed the bison burgers and the open face hot turkey sandwich! Pies, cookies, bread, soups, and chicken pot pies... More

If you prefer venison over ground beef, this is the place to have a geat venison burger with all the tirmmings and some good hot fries. Many other entrees are good too but this is my go to entree when there!!

All our meals were great! Even with special requests! Number of us ordered Apple Pie - but it was later in the evening and they... More

We were looking for something different to try, and stumbled upon this place. The food was decent, but not great. The service was slow, but polite. Overall it was okay, but I probably wouldn't come back. I also tried their raspberry pie that is supposedly really good, and I was not impressed with that either.

Really good reviews by others here were spot on! Splurged for comfort food (meat loaf and natural turkey dinners) - generous portions and delicious! Topped off with malts (hadn't had one in years!) that were amazing! We'll have to go back some time for the burgers - they looked really good too! Plus a fun and nostalgic atmosphere made for...

This is the first time we had been here. I had a burger (with fresh bun made in house) and fries. My husband had the homemade pot pie and a hot fudge malt. Everything was very good. Fun place to eat with good food. Would return.

As soon as you walk in, you are transported back to your teen years (IF you're of Boomer age that is, and I am) from the working juke box in the waiting area to the poodle skirts worn by the wait staff. But don't let that stop you if you are of a different era, there were old timers like... More
