The salads are phenomenal and the ice cream is so delicious. One of my favorite spots to take friends or even for date night. The specials are also great. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu

Went with my parents for dessert after a mothers day showing of the sounds of music. The food was great, service was top notch and the booths were awesome! Would recommend to anyone.

Had lunch with my wife. Got to rave about everything: my soup of the day (coconut, curry and beans); egg salad sandwich, chocolate malt, special salad. Terrific waiter, and the atmosphere is relaxed and fun. If you're a dessert lover, you've found your place. Greatest malt I've ever had.

Wonderful funky place for families anytime or a date at any age. Lots of great sandwiches and the shakes and sundaes are spectacular. They make their own ice cream. Wish it was closer to home and we would go more often. Great for lunch dinner or drinks anytime.

I have eaten at the Fountain on Locust 3 or 4 times and have never been dissapointed. I usually get the half grilled cheese sandwich and half a salad with madrin oranges. Perfect meal for lunch before venturing to the Fox Theatre.

I've been to the Fountain on Locust several times now-once for dinner and several times just for dessert. Their signature ice cream martinis are awesome, and very strong. They have a huge selection and I've been pleased with everything I've tried. The atmosphere is very fun--art deco/ roaring '20's. The food is also excellent! I highly recommend!

A group of us went to the Fountain on Locust to celebrate a graduation. What a great choice! Be sure to try the fantastic ice cream drinks! The appetizers and soups are great! We were there on a cold day, and the warm food and atmosphere were delightful! The ice cream drinks put the icing on the cake!

I'd heard a lot about this place and was very excited to try it so I took my little sister (10) there for ice cream. The building is beautiful. I really like how they've restored the space. The service, sadly, was not good. The waitress couldn't remember our order and she seemed annoyed that we were there.That said, everyone has... More

Thank you for your review and understanding that everyone has a bad day. We were so very sorry to hear about your bad experience and how it did not match your expectations, that we took the time to research the source of the trouble. We normally receive praise for our friendly, happy-to-please service, but you are correct, two of our... More
