“A true piece of Americana”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

On our way out of Rockwall we called in at the candy malt shop to pick up a drink and a sandwich. This place is a step back in time with fabulous malt shakes, hot dogs, club sandwiches and a range of traditional soda's that's hard to beat. The owner and his assistant are friendly and helpful and it is very much wort a visit.

“Quaint old time malt shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012 via mobile

This is a old time malt shop in downtown Rockwall. My favorite is the loaded baked potato and my husband says their chicken salad sandwich is the best. My son loves it because he can buy unique candy and gum. They carry Big League Chew which is his favorite. Finish up your meal with ice cream.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

My g'kids LOVE this place! Food is fresh and tasty. The ice cream is alqways the kids' favorite. They hav lots of candy jars with a varietyof candy you don't usually find anywhere else (BB Bats are my favorite). It is a great place to take the kids for a special treat...and it is a treat for us to!

“Cute Place, Great Malts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

We decided to go out for an icecream treat. This place was very cute, looked just like an Old Timey Malt shop. Nice counter person, (may have been the owner) ?
Food choices sounded good, they also have a candy section, old time favorites as well as 'modern' choices. Fancy Chocolates as well. The Malts we had were thick and delicious....
the ONLY drawback was the (owners kids?) were there (2 school aged playing on a laptop at the end of the counter) and he was letting them behind the counter and they were helping them selves to what they wanted...I understand if you own a place they kids are 'family' and feel comfortable, but it was not 'sanitary' to me to have kids behind the counter.

“A deliciously delectable trip back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2011

If you long for the "good 'ol days" when you regularly dined at the local malt shop, or if you just have a nostalgic spirit, The Candy Jar & Malt Shop in Rockwall is the place for you!
My colleague and I recently visited The Candy Jar after a business appointment in downtown Rockwall. It was highly recommended by the business we were visiting - "Great sandwiches, malts, and old fashioned candies." Indeed, the food was phenomenal! The chicken salad is made fresh daily and the turkey club is one of the favorites!
Furthermore, the owners of The Candy Jar & Malt Shop are huge animal lovers and support the local animal shelter. They regularly hold fundraisers at their shop and display great dog art on their walls that is available for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Rockwall Animal Shelter.
And make sure to try one of their famous malts. Ask Steve to whip you up one of his creative concoctions sure to tantalize your taste buds!
