Classic Burger and Milkshake joint. We enjoyed made to order Cheese Burgers, French Fries, Onion Rings, and a Chocolate Milkshake. Love the casual atmosphere.

Awesome little place that’s been here since the 50’s! Super cute! Great shakes and cones, plus on the side is a little counter with like 8 stools to eat inside. Or there are picnic tables outside! Enjoy!

When we visit Bradenton, we always make a stop at Shake Pit. Their hard ice cream floats and sundaes are favorites of ours, and they never disappointing. They also have great food, if you need a small meal with your ice cream!
