If you're craving a diner-style walk-up to remind you of a simpler time this is it! The food is good, cheap and there's plenty of it!

This is the place for a good grilled burger and a malt. We like the fries, burgers, tenderloin sandwich and all of the ice cream. It is great in good weather, picnic tables and people watching. Or pick up and take home. I recommend this little local place.

Pressed burgers, hot dogs, corn dogs, pork fritter, typical malt shop food. Great malts and shakes. No inside seating, but picnic tables in the shade. A little pricy, buy very good.

Went to get shakes and ice cream for co-workers. I was surprised at the size of a small. It was huge! I have to say it was better then the famous Ted Drews here in St. Louis

This is a great place to go for a quick ice cream. The other meals there are expensive but ice cream here is not a bad price. Although the ice cream doesn't taste like real ice cream. Not a favorite place to go.

When I was young, my grandma would take me to a small mom and pop ice cream stand that served chocolate soda. It had been 20 years since I had one. Until my wife and I found the Malt Shop. It was love at first sip. Took me back to childhood. My wife enjoyed her concretes both times we've gone.... More

Love the outdoor atmosphere and real greasy cheeseburgers. Food like the 50's and 60's - Dislike the mosquitos in the summer

We have been going here for years. They have the best ice cream in the area. They are quick and cheap. We occasionally order from their grill and have always liked whatever we ordered. Can't wait for them to open for the season,

We've been going here for years and have always enjoyed the desserts. I was hungry so I ordered a burger. It was a frozen crap of a burger. I can eat but this thing was thrown away. Why a place can't have fresh burgers is beyond me. I won't be back for food. Hope they read this review and don't... More
