This chain was started in WI, and is mostly known in the Midwest, but is expanding. Their service, meal choices, cleanliness, etc are all great. Quality of items are above most other "fast food" places. Look for their "Snak Pak" items on the menu board- you get a burger, fries and drink for under $5!

The wait for the food, whether drive thru or in the restaurant, is excessive. Then, the food is bland and boring.

What can I say? Culver's Burgers are great. The ice cream even better. Good parking and easy access.

The service is excellent. The battered Cod is lipsmackin' good, especially with Culver's tartar sauce.

We found the Hamburger & Chicken Fingers to be tasty. The French Fries & Fried Cheese Curds were also better than average. Basically, the food is above average for a "Fast Food" restaurant. The cost for the food we ordered is definitely more than other chain, fast food restaurants such as Burger King, Hardee's, Mc Donald's, etc. if you don't... More

Fast food, pure and simple. If not for their frozen yogurt they would be beneath Burger King as Burger King has a patty that you can actually tell is between the bun. I would raise prices enough to make more than a thinner single Mc Donald's patty. Culver's would make a fine replacement for the now mostly defunct TCBY, but... More

Seeing Culver's advertised as we drove, our party tried it out in Decorah, and were very pleased. The burgers were done to order, and ice cream dishes available in many varieties, and all substantial with excellent taste. The staff was friendly, and helpful, and were able to give a good description to help us decide. The quality of everything was... More

Culver's has become known for their custard ice-cream. They offer daily and monthly flavors and they are all great. The food is better than most fast food restaurants; the price is also higher than some fast food restaurants. The hamburgers can be a little greasy, but that is what some people like and they are very tasty. The service is... More

If you are in a hurry and want good quality fast food, Culvers is your place. ButterBurgers are the specialty but we also like the cod sandwiches. Service when ordering is quick and with a smile. Food is delivered to your table quickly and tables are cleaned as soon as someone leaves. Of course you don't want to leave without... More

Stopped by after dinner for dessert with my parents. Ordering was easy, despite my mother's "special order" sundae. She received exactly what she wanted.
