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

It's one of our favorite places and the kids just love it! Food is very tasty and has something for everyone to enjoy. Save room for some delicious desert.

I crave the chicken pot Pirandello have to make the trip to 50s Grill a few times each year. My husband always tries different things on the menu and has never been disappointed. You will never be disappointed in a meal here - portions are big and prices are average. They have malts and shakes and pies/cakes/cookies to take home... More

My sisters & I celebrated our 4 August birthdays here, and as we grew up through the 50's, we were thoroughly charmed by this restaurant. The decor, the food, the big thick malts served with the frosty malt can, and especially the helpful, friendly waitresses with their poodle skirts were fabulous! There are other 50's themed restaurants in the Mpls.... More

Exceptional comfort food menu. A little slow to wait on us but once she did we got her full attention. The malts are to die for and the burgers are the real thing with lots of flavor. Several had the beef pot pies and said the meat was extremely tender. The chicken pot pie was good too. My fries were... More

Good as always! This establishment is a quaint trip back to yesteryears. With poodle skirts & bobby socks, jukeboxes & old fashioned milkshakes & malts. Good American home made meals, generous proportions, reasonable prices, good atmosphere, friendly staff. Great for families, senior citizens or anyone looking for good eats!
