An authentic soda fountain with great food---what a find. You can have phosphates, milkshakes, sundaes, etc. from the extensive ice cream menu, but I'd recommend having lunch first. My favorite meal is the Rita's Chicken Salad on a croissant for two reasons: the chicken salad...More

We stopped in for drinks and a snack. Everything we saw coming from the bar looked great. We had phosphates and chili cheese fries. The services was so so.

Great pizza. We have been here many times and only had the pizza so I can not comment on other dishes.

We've eaten here several times. Since it's like an old time soda fountain, we usually get burgers and shakes which are good.

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.
