This restaurant is for sale. There is no indoor seating. We ate outside. There were no restrooms available. Closed for the season before Labor Day.

Although the burgers, hot dogs, etc. are very tasty, the wait was incredibly long. Don't be in hurry if you stop by for a bite. You will leave with a full belly, though.

My son and I were looking for some ice cream and found it here. We both decided on the root beer float. Staff was very nice - they gave us an extra cup of root beer to add to the float. Super tasty and hit...More

We stopped in for a burger and fries. They are really good. For the size of the burger the value was ok. We are used to eating at a local burger joint that has really big burgers for a cheaper price than we paid here....More

This is clearly an ice cream store that sells food. the ice cream is good, but the food is terrible. They only have outside seating, but all of the tables were well covered and very shady.

Very average (nothing special) hamburgers. But, their fries are really delicious and the malts are wonderful. Order at the outside window and seating is outdoors.

We have to indulge in their malts at least once a summer (usually more but don't tell my doctor). The malts, green chili cheeseburger and oh those fries!

Very good cheeseburgers and great shakes. They offer a lot of different flavors of shakes, The strawberry banana was made with fresh fruit.

We've been stopping here for decades (literally) even as the Malta Shoppe has gone through owner changes. Wide selection of shakes and malts. An evening staple during our stays in South Fork.
