We used to love this place,been here many times. Food now just mediocre and the malts not malty. In addition, they had an in-American sign on the door with hate speech. Ouch.

GREAT shakes! No TV! We also enjoyed a great cobb salad, 1/2 sandwich & cup of soup. Lovely, small stop.

Was surprised that the chocolate malt wasn't chocolaty. Really expect more of a restaraunt whose speciality is malts. The cheesburger was excellent. Fish and chips mostly breading.

Stop by and savor one of the many, many flavors of real malts. Add a meal and your day will be complete. Not to be missed for casual dining.

We were hungry so we each ordered burgers and a malt and float. Wow - it was all good but way too much to eat.... The atmosphere is not fancy, just warm and inviting.

We were introduced to this place on our second visit to Twin Cities, now we brought the younger one. He defeated a small malt by himself, so betting on sharing and trying the many different flavors didn't work.
