The atmosphere is great, the food even better, the cocktails were perfect and the brownie in the cup was awesome. I had the adult grilled cheese and in was perfect. I added the coffee ice cream to my brownie and it was amazing.

The Fountain on Locust is great for families, friends or even date night! It's always bustling with happy diners who want to satisfy their sweet tooth. I was pleasantly surprised to find their food is just as delicious as their popular desserts. I crave the "adult grilled cheese" and soup. I, also, appreciate the fact that they always have vegetarian... More

I have been with my kids and they love it. They have lots of desserts, even adult cocktail type ice cream treats. But I have also been for lunch and dinner. Everything we have tried has been delicious. It is close to the Fox Theatre, Powell Symphony Hall, Grand Center.

Well if you go here you have to have ice cream. Either go for an ice cream martini or a sundae. You won't regret it. And the chocolate sauce is dangerously good. Menu for food is limited compared to some. But unlike others, everything is good.

Took my family visiting from out of town to the Fountain for lunch after a baseball game at SLU. The restaurant is close by campus and easy to find. Everyone enjoyed the unique atmosphere and menu that was different from average and very appetizing. There were 7 in our party and we all enjoyed our appetizer, unique specialty drinks, and... More

The Cuban sandwich is delightful. The cocktails are wonderful, and desserts are very good. The atmosphere is very inviting. The service was very good. The location was convenient to the Fox and the Sheldon theaters which were the venues we were going to the two times we went to the Fountain.
