Fantastic shakes!

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... read more

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

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.

They had a great brunch on sunday and it was amazing. Everything you would expect done well. Eggs benedict were so beautifully done. Didn't have overly fancy items so the price was fair. Some places put all sorts of seafood and charge $25 a person which we don't eat. So was perfect for us and should be perfect for you... More

I wrote a 5000 word essay on how bad our experience was at Pikes, but TripAdvisor wouldn't publish it. Let me just say that the food was terrible, the waitress was terrible and the management was terrible. How bad? We wanted to walk out but the cops were there. In the end, management let us out without paying. Don't go.... More

Decided that in all the unbreakable, unbearable heat having ice cream for lunch would be necessary. Took the kids to Pike's Old fashioned Soda bar. While the food is good, today we just had to sit at the soda counter and just eat ice cream. Fun experience, loads of great flavors, toppings, sundaes, shakes and more. Go have fun....Pike's won't...

Love the idea this place has history. Shakes are awesome. Service is really hit or miss. The menu really needs to be revamped. You can get meatloaf, who eats that? Haha anyways, I am still a fan because it is different.

While having lunch with a friend. We saw a roach crawling on the wall. When brought this to the waitress attention her respond was due to the weather being nice they came out. We paid for our meal and asked for A Manager. Who never came to address our complaint. Rather disturbed Management fail to acknowledge our complaint.
