If you want big juicy burger, hot crispy fries, and the best malt in town, go to Convention Grill. It has been in the same location for over 75 years. It is the best!!

Our waitress was disinterested, the burger was very dry and they were out of the shake we wanted. On the other hand, their fries are great and the atmosphere is exactly what you want from a diner

I don't understand the positive reviews of this place! Everyone in my group agreed that the food was low quality. The atmosphere felt very awkward and there was an all encompassing grease stench. The waiter forgot my onions and the kitchen forgot the cheese on my burger. Never going back.

Always have a good experience. Burgers done right, and the service is top-notch. If you have room, a milkshake is a good way to end a meal at Convention Grill.

The restaurant is a fun diner with friendly waitresses. I got a regular hamburger with bacon and it was delicious. The largest size of fries was enough to feed the four of us. They were delicious but our fries were cut the short way so we had a lot of tiny fries. The hot fudge malt is a must and... More

Last week since we were in the neighborhood we stopped at Convention Grill for a hamburger. I had been going there off and on for over 50 years because I really like their Plaza Burger. Maybe I hit a bad night but we were so disappointed. The pumpernickel bun was dry like it was a week old, the hamburger patty... More

Nice, quiet place for lunch. Some salads, but mostly known for their burgers and malts. I had the California burger with lettuce, tomato, and mayo. My wife had the Plaza burger with sour cream, chives, and onion on a Pumpernickel roll. We split a chocolate malt (32 oz) which was very thick. We also split a hot fudge sundae which... More

Whenever I get the urge for a good burger & malt, we head here. The atmosphere is great, with a diner-type look and feel. The burgers are hearty and the full basket of fresh cut french fries was almost too much for the 3 of us! We all had the burgers, but there are other items on the menu for... More
