We always stop when we are in the area. The food is good and the atmosphere is fun. The shakes and malts are authentic and a great way to finish the visit.

This place takes cash only--know before you go! Beyond that, this is a cute little spot off the main drag. I love the 50s decor, and the food was awesome! Very classic but with some fun local additions, too. I recommend it.

Mediocre food and slow service, plus when we were there they were out of a lot of items on the menu.

We sat at the counter, grabbed a couple of menus and were completely ignored for about 15 minutes. We then got up and left. I have no idea how the food is but I know the service is horrible.

I haven't had such a good malt since I was a kid (in the stone age). My wife, daughter, and I split a vanilla and a strawberry and went to malt heaven. The sandwiches were excellent and the server was efficient, but the kitchen was...More

Folks have good days and bad; so too eateries I suppose. I read the glowing reviews of the Malt Shop and check my receipt to be sure we’re speaking of the same place. We stopped by for a late lunch and while we feel pretty...More

We popped in here for lunch today. They were incredibly busy and rushed off their feet (I think the huge numbers of holiday tourists is a once a year thing!) but it was friendly service and the food tasted good - I’ve never had maple...More
