“food great service so so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

When arriving told to sit anywhere. The wait staff did not hand out the menu. After watching the waiters and waitresses chit chat with each other for 5 minutes I went to get the menu myself . Once we looked at the menu a waitress finally came over and took the order. The food came out quickly. the food was good and the milkshakes was excellent. after eating it took the waitress at least 10 minutes to come over and give the check. While waiting for the check I noticed the tables were cleared but no one swept under the tables. I have been here before with great service but this was my friends first time. He would not go back despite the great milkshake because of the service and cleaniness of the restaurant

“Old school soda shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

What holsten's lacks in variety of flavors they make up for in spades with the quality of their ice cream. Simply the best in the area.
As for the food, it's straight up old school soda shop fare that's more or less a throw back to the 50s and 60s.
Not to mention that they have an in house confectionary, stocked with outstanding homemade delicacies.

“Frozen in Time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

Sweet, precious, unchanging step-back-in time Holsten's. Had dinner there last week. $4 burgers (really), French fries, taylor ham and cheese, great onion rings and a full soda fountain with egg creams and all the rest. If you want a blast from the past, stop in.

“First time here can't wait to go back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Was here the other night with family for ice cream it was really cute and the ice cream was unreal. I know they shot the sopranos here I could care less my grandma talks about the food and ice cream all the time. I'm so glad I tried this place will be back for food.
