Our family's favorite restaurant for Sat lunch! Butter burger is very good. Please don forget to put everything on it! Also, I love Cod sandwich. This is marvelous. Extra sauce makes this more tasty! Store is not too busy and clean. This store has a patio.

Just stopped by for the frozen custard. It's the creamiest I have eaten. The burgers, to me are a little greasy but the fries are good. The wait time seems long. They are not as fast as I think they could be. Getting food and ice cream in the drive up window and being asked if I needed a lid... More

While the butter burger is a delicious classic, you can't go wrong with their chicken tenders. Kids meals come with a free scoop of custard. Crinkle fries are awesome. Pot roast burger is good too!

This place has been left to the children to run. No urgency. No desire to provide positive customer service. The female staff member on the drive thru window is complaining about customers out loud. They are confusing orders. Very surprising. Hope this is a fluke.

My wife likes going for certain flavors of the day so it is a nice place to go spend a little time. The frozen custard is very good.

The nice thing about Culver's is everything is cooked to order. Sometimes you have to wait a few minutes while they cook it up fresh for you, but it's worth the wait. If you're eating inside they will give you a number so you can grab a table, sit down and relax while they bring the food to you. On... More

This place (Culver's) is in a league of it's own when it comes to food, service, and smiles. Every One I have been into I have found the people are happy about their job. Nice to see in this day and age. They offer service with a smile 110% of the time. The food is always good and the daily... More

We've been to this location a number of times. On our most recent visit, the service was pretty quick, but we were somewhat disappointed in the food. On my pork tenderloin sandwich, there were not enough condiments in proportion to the size of the sandwich. The lack of condiments made the sandwich very dry. The french fries were hot, and... More

The staff was very friendly. I ordered the Colby Jack Pub Burger which did not look like the picture when served and I did not like the taste of it. The restaurant smelled like body odor and the bathroom was a bit dirty. Overall Culvers Restaurants are pretty good, but this one was a bit below average in comparison.
