I really like the old time feel of this little joint. The music was nice and the variety of food was nice. A good family place or date night. It's nice to share a milkshake and get transported to the 1950's. Good food and atmosphere.

Dined here for a casual dinner. We ordered pizza which was very good then we witnessed this huge sundae being served at the table next to us! 18 scoops of ice cream! Looked incredible. A family ordered this and eight people couldn’t finish it. So...More

The food is simple, classic & always good. The atmosphere in the restaurant is perfectly nostalgic. Just wish the service was better, it seems like they are always understaffed.

This is a through back to an earlier time with counter, booth and outdoor seating. Great sandwiches (the best BLT around) and extravagant ice cream specialties highlight the menu. It is a great spot for families That offers very tasty food at very reasonable prices,...More

We stopped just for dessert, and the four of us got cookie dough ice cream, a custom malted frappe, and two ice cream floats. They were all unbelievably rich. Perfect for a snack on a hot March afternoon!

We saw this restaurant as soon as we parked and knew we had to go in. We had hot dogs and fries and of course, soda fountain drinks. It reminded us of the old drug store soda fountains we used to go to when we...More

We have been to Vinnie’s/SFoV a few times now, for pizza and sandwiches. Really good pizza! Meatball sub is also fantastic! Haven’t tried an ice cream treat yet, so that gives us a reason to return again. This place doesn’t get the attention it deserves...other...More

Like stepping back in time. An authentic old fashioned soda fountain serving a wide variety of sundaes, ice cream sodas and malts. Also serving New York style thin crust hand-tossed pizza as well as delicious sandwiches and salads. There's something for everyone at The Soda Fountain.
