Stopped in here after lunch and had to debate what to get. Ended up making 2 trips here, had the brownie fudge milkshake and then came back for the peanut butter toffee shake. Terrific place, I need to do a lot if walking to burn off the calories! Highly recommended for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Hubby and I stopped for shakes and were not disappointed. A perfect substitute for dessert. He enjoyed a chocolate peanut butter shake and I selected the chocolate mint shake. Made to order, they were fresh, thick and delicious.

This is the best place to get a milkshake. They are thick shakes. Highly recommend the red velvet milkshake. The chocolates they sell there are awesome as well

This is such a cute restaurant! I will take my whole family here when they come for a sweet treat dessert. Not only are their milkshakes phenomenal, they have a ton of chocolate treats they make to choose from. The decor is super cute too, nice for a date night!

We saw this spot driving through the city and walked from our hotel the next night. They were nearing closing time, but had no problems whipping up a few shakes for us. Everyone working at that time was pleasant, polite and efficient. And the shakes are GREAT with a huge variety.

We walked past the shop on the way to dinner & decided to stop after dinner. I ordered the cookies and cream shake and honestly Chick fil a cookies and cream is much better. My daughter had the mint chip shake and loved it. Give it a try.... It's good but nothing extraordinary.

I have never heard of The Milkshake Factory before walking past it. I stopped in and order a hot chocolate and two chocolate covered Oreos. The hot chocolate was made WAY too HOT and by the time it was cool enough to drink it tasted like warm milkshake. I would rather get my hot chocolate from Sheetz (not the powered... More
