The service is always excellent. I would recommend the hamburgers and Irish nachos. My teenage boys love coming here. The interior seating does need some updates. The booth seats lack cushion.

We had burgers, a pattimelt, chicken fingers, fries, Irish fries, and the green river milkshake. The food was amazing! The decor was very cool with artifacts from the 1950s and 1960s. The staff was friendly and service was good, too. Oh, and they offer a military discount, which automatically raises it a star IMO! We're glad to have chosen Schoop's... More

Flat top burgers, pressed flat with crisp edges--very good burgers. But--I keep coming back for the milkshakes!! Hand dipped, creamy whipped goodness with a cherry on top!! Fun old-school diner.

Used to frequent quite regularly. Good food at reasonable prices with attentive service. For some inconceivable reason management is obsessed with playing music at rock concert levels. Complaints are of little impact. Stopped going there because you cannot carry on a conversation.

We had recent teenage company. So, off to Schoops! Our friends tried the Green River "soda" pop. So good. We all ordered excellent burgers, fries and onion rings. The rings were a bit over cooked however the burgers were just so good! Service was great too! Ask for Rachel and ove tip her! She is the best waitress ever!

I know of no place where you get better eggs, sausage, hash browns and toast. Service is usually quick and the coffee cup is kept full. The wait staff is friendly. It is a Diner style place complete with counter service. 50's and 60's memorabilia and music from the era create a great atmosphere for the baby boomers who make... More

I really like their hamburgers....thin with crispy edges.....shakes were good as well. This is worth getting off the Interstate for.

Going in to Schoop's is like going back to the 50s. Gives me that warm, fuzzy feeling of being young again...and to top it off the service is top notch and the food terrific. Do NOT miss this restaurant if in the area. Their burgers are famous for crisp edges and are huge. Try the chili...you will not be disappointed.... More

Went there because it seemed like a fun place to eat. The food was OK at best. Was not a big fan of the deep fried patty, unfortunately did not agree with me. The fries were good.

We visit MC every few years (used to live there) and stop here every single time! Fantastic food here, something for everyone! The Green River soda is not to be missed-- same for the Irish Nachos!
