Had the French toast...just average unfortunately because I've eaten in Galt Creamery several times and always happy with my choice! Others had the chili cheese dog and loved it. If you have food allergies, be careful...don't have anything from the fryer!

This was our third stop at the Velvet Grill. We like the food and enjoy the staff. Instead of just one waitress we were helped by three! Each one was professional yet personable. Whatever you choose for lunch/dinner - and we suggest one of the burgers - leave room for dessert!

We went as a group of 4 for lunch. Highlights: good service, great ice cream (3 different flavors tried). Low points: lunch (sandwiches and salads), general atmosphere, and decor.

So my SO told me about this placed and dragged me in for a milkshake! Walking in you are greeted with a smiling face and quickly seated. The menu looked good and the ice-cream selection is amazing! So many flavours i've never heard of, and that's from someone that's seen the wonders of Italian ice-cream. We had a shake and... More

Went there and got eggs and bacon and a bowl of fruit and paid $13.44. My buddy got a waffle, eggs, bacon and something else and paid less than $6.00. complained to the cashier and no adjustment was made. Will not return to a place that serves an average breakfast for the highest price in town.

This place makes me with I lived here ... But then I'd be huge. It was delicious and the service was great. I totally recommend the Almond Joy Milkshake. Wonderful

Food is on par with similar restos, but the ice cream sets them apart. they have a car show on Wednesday nights during the summer.

I have eaten at both Velvet Grill and Creamery in Modesto many times. Every time is perfect. Food is fresh, made to order, and delivered by outstanding waitstaff. Extensive menu! Extra bonus is the ice cream made right on the premises! Lots of flavor choices. Too full after your meal? No problem - just take a pint or quart home... More
