I had been to the 50's Grill years back and had fond memories of it. The decor is fun but could possibly be a bit cleaner. The malts were amazing but like the food they were a bit more expensive then necessary. The waitress was very sweet, fun and helpful. The nachos were dry and were bland. The burgers were... More

I recently went there with my in-laws for a birthday celebration. I fell in love with this little gem straight away. The staff were very welcoming from start to finish and took great care of us (we were a party of ten) from start to finish. The menu has all the great comfy fare you are looking for on a... More

I have never been disappointed here. Whether stopping for lunch or dinner or reserving pies and cake for the holidays, the quality never ends.

The 50’s Grill is located on Brooklyn Blvd just about a block northwest of Highway 100 in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. It is also located across the street from the big Sears store and the old Brookdale Shopping Center. This restaurant used to be the old Farrels Ice Cream Parlour and I know that since I worked there as a teenager.... More

This is one of my go to restaurants. Homemade food, desserts, malts, burgers & fries. I love there homemade soups & they have homemade dinners like Turkey, stuffing & mashed potatoes; meatloaf, hamburger steak & others. Prices are reasonable.

This is a fun place for families; as mentioned before the decor is vintage 50's. The waitresses wear poodle skirts and cute blouses. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We did have to wait a bit for our food; we were there for lunch on a Sunday and it wasn't overly busy. Our entrees were served hot. The reason I... More

The food here is good and they maintain made from scratch. Burgers are good. They have a large menu and some things can be great and others off. They serve an individual loaf of French bread with many entrees. Today that bread was cold, not warm. They are known for shakes and malts, with many flavors. Today our malt was... More

Friendly service, interesting themed decor but over-priced for mediocre food. Menu is varied. Our dinners were lack luster and not worth the price. French bread was warm but just ok, salads were bland and primarily cheap iceberg lettuce although the dressings were tasty and may have been homemade.Fish and shrimp entrees taseted like generic food service purchases. Plus it seemed... More

Nicely done decor, the food not so much. My wife had a hamburger and fries. I had a turkey burger and a salad. The salad was good and my wife's fries were pretty decent. But the burgers were nothing to write home about. Both were over cooked and my turkey burger had been smashed so thin it hung way over... More
