“Fun, perfect spot, great food for a family...”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

The Soda Shop is an experience not to be missed when visiting Davidson. It is at once a throw back to another time and yet hip with its many offerings, including plenty for the family that includes vegetarians. Everyone from youngest to oldest was pleased with the food and the vibe.

“Excellent Stop for Breakfast or Lunch”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Quaint restaurant on the Main Street in Davidson is a must for either breakfast or lunch. Not many tables, so get there early. Food is very good.

“Meh....”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Overpriced. Crowded. Slow. There's many more restaurants that have better service, better food, and better prices for what you get.

“Cash only, mediocre food at best, small tables”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Before starting this review, let me explain why I decided to give 2 stars besides the restaurant quality: IT IS A CASH ONLY PLACE. That means either you come loaded with money (you will need it) or you have to use their ATM so they can make a bigger profit out of it.

This place has nothing special about it. The food is expensive, mediocre and the large tables can barely fit 2 people on it. If you are overweight or have a big family skip this place. They serve the food in styrofoam plates, plastic fork/knifes and the service is usually slow. If you want a similar restaurant with a much better food and service go to Toast next door. No wonder they have always long waits and Soda Shop has only clients that gave up waiting for Toast and are lazy to drive somewhere else.

“Just go. It's amazing”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

I'm craving a Soda Shop milk shake right now! Must put this on your list next time you are in Davidson! Only down side is that there are so many choices you want it all!
