What a great place!! I ordered the corned beef Reuben and let me tell you that was the best meal (from a restaurant) that I have had since I moved down here. OMG I could only eat 1/2 my sandwich and that isn't me...LOL They have homemade potato chips which were delectable. Others had the hamburgers which they loved and... More

We just moved to the area and love diners. This place has great food, cool retro atmosphere and competitive prices. Jennifer is a great server - very friendly!

Have a neat experience, grab a stool at the bar and order some old time goodness! Milkshakes are hand dipped and mixed the old-fashioned way served with a spoon. The egg cream soda will knock your socks off. Nothing pretentious about this favorite stop, my family really loves this place!

It has been a really long time since I've had milk shakes and Pike's is the place to be!!! They are your old-fashioned styled American dining experience. And their shakes are absolutely delicious! That it in itself is a meal. But we also had lunch and they serve fantastic kid menu items and the best honey pecan fried chicken. My... More

Came here on the way to a show because we had a buy one get one free entree coupon and we will definitely be back again without a coupon. Appetizers (Mozz. Sticks and Onion Rings) were great, shakes (Black Cherry and Peanut Butter) were awesome, entrees (Chicken Tenders and Custom Burger) were delicious. I was actually really surprised with the...

We ran across this place a few months ago and have returned several times. Great food, friendly and fast staff, the manager/owner is there talking to customers. Ice cream sodas are super, all sorts of flavored. Decor is great. Very busy.

My family and I enjoyed a delicious meal at Pike's Old Fashioned Soda Shop. This place is a little jewel in Charlotte! It has a nice and nostalgic atmosphere. We were seated and served promptly. I had a vanilla milkshake, which reminded me of the ones my mother used to make for us, and I made it through about half... More

We've been here twice; once for breakfast and once for lunch. The service was excellent both times, and very friendly. Both visits the place was pretty busy but we didn't wait long for a table, even with 8 people. Most of the food was good, but a few dishes were not. Overall, we'd return, if for nothing else than the... More

Waitress was very friendly but Food was terrible. Extremely salty!!! Host come to table to ask how the food was when we told him it was very salty he said "cook must have been heavy handed with the salt" did not even offer to replace the dish. Will never go back.

We loved eating lunch here.the food was great and the setting was good for the kids. We found a parking spot on the street right beside the restaurant. We were sat immediately and we had a great waitress. We enjoyed eating in and of course had to get some ice cream to top it off.

Thank PAE B
