Always nice and clean and great food. They have space for a group of maybe up to 15 so it was very easy to gather family there to eat and not be crowded.

I love going here to get their concrete mixers. I gotta say that it's in the top 3 best places to get ice cream in the cedar valley. The service is friendly and usually doesn't take long to go through the drive thru to get it.

My son had his first taste of custard and loved it. We enjoyed a late night desert here while visiting family. The restaurant was very clean and staffed with friendly young people.

As always, we enjoyed the green beans and cod dinner. It was a quiet environment to dine in with our grandchild.

Excellent walleye sandwich with piping hot fries. Fries were a bit bland, but still tasty. It was worth the stop today.

For same price you can go to a decent sit down place in town. Ice cream is ok, but again starting to get pricey. Paid like 5 bucks for what I would consider to be a small shake. Good, but not sure on value for what you are paying

So we're traveling from Western Michigan to North Central Iowa. It was time for lunch and we spotted culvers. In western Michigan we've had good experiences with culvers so we thought we'd give this a try. We walked in, And the lines were 2 to 3 people deep. The order lines progressed very quickly. We placed our order to go... More
