“Ice Cream Sodas are real treat”
Reviewed January 30, 2010

Good lunch spot especially if you like Ice Cream Sodas, generally not offered in most ice cream parlors. Decorated like a Soda Fountain in the 1950s, this is a trip into the past. We enjoyed the Reuben sandwich and a wrap which had lots of veggies; both include choices of sides. The ice cream sodas and sundaes are great. We had good service and the restaurant was very busy with lots of customers.

“Great, unique throw-back diner with great food, service and sodas!”
Reviewed November 22, 2009

Located in downtown Venice, Florida, the Soda Fountain offers a full menu, but the real reason to go is the ice cream sodas! Made the way they were back in the 50's and 60's, nothing beats a Black & Black (chocolate ice cream and chocolate soda)! The diner ambiance is also 1950's throwback.
The pizza isn't the best I've ever had, but its not the worst either and definitely better than the frozen stuff at the grocery store.
Service is also excellent, all done with a smile and positive attitude. Overall a great place to have desert after a long stroll along Venice Avenue.
