This was my first time visiting The Fountain on Locust, and I was surprised at the variety on the menu. Not normally one for soda, I ordered a homemade root beer, which was awesome. I even had a refill! For dinner, I ordered the Pick 2 so I could try two different things on the menu - the Famous Cuban... More

This is a place you don't want to miss out on. It was recommended to us by four of my coworkers & did not disappoint. Our server, Killian, guided us through the menu making knowledgeable, on point recommendations to give us a good starting point on the ice cream martini menu. If you haven't had an ice cream martini, don't... More

I've visited Fountain on Locust several times over the past couple of years and the place has a wonderful atmosphere and clean environment, however the menu seems to be very limited for dinner. With an expanded menu, it's a great place for a first date and hip place to go for out of the ordinary...

Met some friends the other day at Fountain on Locust. The food menu is diverse and everyone loved their choices. I had a grilled cheese using two kinds of cheese and apple slices......heavenly. But, it was the desserts. so many kinds of sundaes and concoctions that you would have to see to believe. I had the dark chocolate ice cream... More

Great place for those who are nostalgic but, want a little twist. Especially like the booths where you can dial in and listen to an old 40s radio show. The retro mural was painted by the owner and the desserts are fantastic. Get there early before the college crowd hits.

For our school auction, I agreed to take 3 students to The Fox. The show was outstanding but the best part was going to The Fountain on Locust. We arrived before the dinner crowd and each of us had a unique ice cream sundae. Delicious and truly extraordinary all set in this fun Art Deco setting. I then went a... More

This cute little restaurant is decorated with floor to ceiling murals every direction you look. The food is pretty good - mostly soups and sandwiches, but they're the creative variety. The adult grilled cheese is the best. But the thing that makes Fountain the best is that it is an old fashioned soda fountain. They serve house-made sodas (blackberry is... More
