Revisiting some of our old stops recently and swung by Greendale for a Fall walk. Remembered Ferches and had to stop for a treat. Throwback diner atmosphere and great custard. Loved the way it's prepared on a marble slab. Thinking back, we've only had dessert here, so we can't review the food. Recommend the sundaes and malts with the throwback... More

Great soda fountain drinks and malts. Love the pretzel's with cheese sauce. Good fries, but stay away from the hot dogs. I would probably rate this place a 5 if they had some decent adult supervision.

4 of us went to Ferch's for lunch, they have regular burgers, sandwiches, wraps and salads (even a veggie burger and gluten free bun) We went of a Saturday and the outside patio was open (lots of shade to sit under) The tab for the 4 of us was 50.00 (plus tip) I think is steep for 1 burger, 2...

I was just down at Grant Beach and WOW I was so surprised that a Ferchs was there. They just opened up. The food was great, they also serve beer and wine. This place is right on the beach. Great views of the lake, moon rises, sunrises. They are also serving custard, malts, burgers... Menu is a little different then... More

It has been a while since coming back to Greendale and getting another taste of Ferch's while in town. I love their chocolate malts, burgers and fries. Great to see all the wonderful changes in the Village. I love to see all the smiling faces that come through the front door and they are ready to treat themselves to some... More

I stopped in here with my kids & in-laws recently. This well known spot is a classic malt shoppe & ice cream joint. Along with that they server a bunch of standard short order food. My jalapeño & jack burger was cooked well and made with fresh jalapeño, not canned. My milkshake (caramel malted milkshake) was amazingly delicious. The onion... More

I went here with my mom and grandma for dinner this week. They have a good variety of options to eat such as hot dogs, burgers, salads, wraps and desserts. The atmosphere is that of a 50's style diner/fountain. Nice variety of desserts and ice cream sundae type options. Alexis was our waitress and she was super friendly and attentive.... More

Waited for 15 minutes at the counter to be asked if we needed any service. Nothing! Staff seemed like talking to each other and opening a crouton bag was more of the priority. This was supposed to be a celebration for completing 2nd grade for our son and turned into a lesson on poor customer service. Left without ordering after... More

Ferch's came to my attention because of my partner's Gluten allergy. They offer GF buns which is still a rarity but is catching on. To find a small joint like this who offers this option is nearly unheard of and I appreciate that I can go here with him and we both enjoy a good burger. I really enjoy their... More

If you can dream it, they can make it. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. A fun place to dine or to just stop in for a ice cream.
