I felt like Culver's chicken dinner between two grocery stops, since I was relatively close by; however, it seems the chicken dinner is off their menu. The cashier recommended the shrimp plate (probably because my husband had decided to have the cod). The shrimp was awful, mushy and tasteless. Some kind of a fried molded mess, made to look like...

I can't give good reviews about Culver's because everytime my family has ever gone to this restaurant everybody who gets a burger gets bad stomach aches and is rushing to the bathroom when we get home with stomach aches. They are tasty burgers but not worth the after effects Maybe if the burgers weren't dripping with grease ?

I walked down from my hotel and arrived just before close and they still gave great service and food even though I stayed there to eat and stayed 15 minutes after close.

Just stopped in for some frozen custard for desert. Very delicious and very nice Culver's. Very clean and friendly staff as you would expect at the chain. Love the custard here, so creamy, silky and delicious.

My crispy jalapeno chicken was bland and not remotely crispy. The onion rings and cheese curds were covered in salt!

On Wednesday and Thursday from 4-8 pm, they offer AYCE fried chicken for $7.99 and it comes with 2 sides and a roll. They start you off with 3 pieces - usually a breast, thigh and a drumstick or wing then a team member comes around with a basket of chicken and you can pick what you want. We've been... More

Every day this location of Culver's has a flavor of the day special which is a small cone for a dollar! It is the best value anywhere. The cones come with lots of good stuff mixed in. For example, Oreos, M&M's etc.

While visiting in TC, we got in late and I was hungry, so at 9PM you don't look at fancy - just something to fill your belly. Culver's was close to our motel and off we went. I ordered the shrimp dinner w/ fires and Cole slaw. The restaurant was very clean and the staff was friendly - even at... More

I haven't had a bad meal there. We live about 45 minutes from TC and once we're done with shopping and we are headed home, try going past Culvers is really hard to do ! Hubby loves their burgers & the fries. I'm always trying a dinner. Today was Walleye fish, I went for it, and SO glad I did.... More
