Our family loves Snuffy's! Their menu has something for everyone. I had the Spicy Snuffy Burger with pepper jack cheese and jalapeño peppers. One family member had a Plaza Buger with swiss cheese, grilled onions, sour cream, and chives on rye and loved it! I topped it off with a Fudge-Scotchie malt, which is fudge and butterscotch. It was absolutely... More

My family has been coming here for more than 15 years and has ALWAYS enjoyed the food. Great burgers, fries onion rings and malts. If you have small kids there are some wonderful animal caricatures on the wall that we used to use as a "game" to distract the kids while the food was being prepared.

I'll make this short and sweet. Snuffy's Malt Shop, specifically the one that's been on Cleveland and St. Claire in St. Paul for the last 30 years, is the very best malt shop around. End of story! Why? Because of 1) Incredible burgers served steamy hot and savory on a super fresh bun in a variety of constructed options; 2)... More

Went for the fudge malt. Enjoyed the malt, fries and mushroom Swiss burger. Not a hamburger that is above the top good but we enjoyed our time together.

Like most people I know, I grew up experiencing diners through the television. I always thought they were just that though - and then I found Snuffy's! It feels like a genuine family diner, because it is. We got the fried cheese curds, a burger, and a club sandwich. Everyone was so friendly and very Minnesotan! The best part was... More

This place always makes me feel like I'm going to sneeze, but the food is good and kinda old school. Burger buns are a bit fluffy. Overall ay-okay.

We were visiting St. Kate's and decided to stop here afterwards. Old-style diner setting. Chrissy was our server - promptly visited the table, took our order, checked back to see how we were, punctually delivered the bill - all greatly appreciated. Our fudge malt was really good - my daughter and I split it, which turned out to be a... More
