“so so”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Service is slow. Food is not what it used to be..Ice Cream and Shakes are worth it. Nice View of River and the floaters.

“Disappointing, again”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

How can you mess up soft serve ice cream? I stopped here a couple years ago and was disappointed by the ice cream and the service. I thought I'd give it another try, thinking that surely it had improved. I was wrong. Ice cream was horrible, icy, just not good, poor quality. We won't go back.

“Brougt back my youth”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

The Malt Shop is a throw back to what I saw and used in the 50's and early 60's. The food is very good and the ice cream and shakes/malts/floats are great. The place is very busy at lunch and the service suffers a little for it. But it's worth it. And on top of all that, they serve breakfast every morning from 7 - 10 am. Not fancy but really good. The biscuits and gravy are to die for. If you haven't figured it out yet, I like good food without being fancy.

“The ice cream is wonderful!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

My husband an i liked stopping by here to pick up ice cream treats. We had "avalanches", and " chocolate shakes". The ice cream is homemade tasting.. Mmmm. The inside isnt fancy, it looks like nothing has changed in 30 years, but the ice cream was worth it!

“It's a Burger”
Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Can't concur with the nasty reviews. Better than a stop at Micky Ds in my opinion. Food is decent--and it's packed on a Sunday at 2pm. Surely the numbers mean something.
