“Go for a malt! Like stepping back in time.”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

Older place in the back to eat. Worth trying out. Don't expect much, but do expect feeling like you are in a different time and enjoy the old style food.

“Worth it for the setting alone”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

Now, don't get me wrong, the food isn't bad, but it's pretty standard old diner stuff. The malt was very good and the onion rings were okay (a little soggy but still good whole onions with a good batter). But the soda fountain atmosphere, the community feel of the place, and the fact that you can order, wander around the antique store and then come back for your food, make it a place you should make sure you visit when in Oakland. (I suggest sharing a milkshake/malt with someone - they charged us extra but it's still a steal for what is really two milkshakes)

“Nostalgia and good food!”
Reviewed November 27, 2011

Good prices, home style menu choices. Comfort food for sure. Milk shakes that are hand made, good soup, grilled cheese , serious burgers, great breakfasts. I have been there about 4 times now. I could go on... its your drug store style soda fountain from the 50's / 60's. Like going back in time. A must see if you are in the area. I think they are closed on Sunday (but the antique portion of the place is open still... bring your camera and take some pictures when the restaurant is not open, there aren't many places like this left.

“Best Burgers and Shakes!”
Reviewed November 24, 2011

This small, 50 style counter dinner has the best burgers in Western Maryland. I always ask for a fried egg on top and fried whole mushrooms on the side. Shakes are huge and excellent.
