The Soda Fountain is one of our favorite places to take guests and to go to ourselves. The food is excellent and the ice cream choices and combinations delightful. My favorite is the chocolate peanut butter milk shake which is a balance of both flavors....More

Nice little short order lunch counter and ice cream parlor serving wonderful ice cream creations. You can even sit at the counter and watch everything made. Lots of fun. Nice portions at reasonable prices. Cheerful service. Excellent ice cream.

Authentic soda fountain with a huge selection of phosphates, floats, ice cream sodas, shakes & malts. Friendly atmosphere, great service. My cherry phosphate was loaded with maraschinos, and they gave me a second to go! We shared a burger (1/3 pound) & fries—both delish. Will...More

An old fashion Soda Fountain. Something out o the past. It is at the far west end of Venice Avenue. Good ice cream, music sometimes. A fun place to take the children.

Went there for a few meals. Pizza is great but so are the sandwiches. Milk shakes where they bring the shaker. Fair prices and nice atmosphere. A must in Venice.

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

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.
