Stopped here while in the area. S & S is consistent; in other words you know what you're getting. Freshly cooked burgers are one of their staples. Was not disappointed.

My son loves pancakes so all you can eat pancakes worked well. Get there early to get served within 1/2 hour after placing your order. Only certain servers understand true service so be careful who serves you. Lunch is cool - steak burgers, chili, chicken soup, even the beef hot dogs are alright. If you enjoy milk shakes, brownies and... More

Stopped here for a quick take out meal recently, 4 girls behind the counter and one guy sitting at the counter. Tried to get their attention but the girls were too busy looking at photos on one of their phones and talking to a friend. Finally got my meal ordered. Food is good and quick though. Just lacks customer service.

I have eaten breakfast here on a few occasions. The restaurant was always clean and the service above average. The endless flapjacks include a meat now and you can't beat the price. Seniors get a 10% discount just for the asking. The background music is from the 50's 'n 60's. Milkshakes are half price at certain times-Try it-You'll like it!

Went Saturday afternoon. Had very good service and food. Fast too. They were pretty busy, but we did not feel anything. Ordered the garlic burger and it was yummy. Then a shake for dessert. Consistency was like a frosty, which I'm not sure if supposed to. But we finished it. The crowd seemed happy along with the staff. It was... More

Food was good. Server was nice, quiet but nice. He wasn't very attentive and was more focused on other back of house duties. I understand things need to get done while we dine which is why I patiently waited 15 minutes before asking for the check. He was too caught up talking to coworkers to noticed we had finished about... More

The problem is the service. Many good items to order. And the prices are great. I like the hamburgers and salad. The decor is nice. The seats are comfortable. And the restaurant has a nice retro look. The problem is with the service. The employees left the customers to have a gossip session. And saw people left the table and... More

Most of the people working here are terrible. I can only recall 4 employees who have done me right in all of my 12 years of coming here. I wish I knew their names so I could commend them. I've once seen one of the supervisors (I want to say his name was Chris) berating a super sweet and good... More

This location is very close to our home, so my husband and I have been there several times. The only reason we dare to go back is because we love steak n shake food and we hope it will be better when we go. Each time we are disappointed and now we are DONE. The staff is ALWAYS rude. This... More
