Never saw so many flavors of soft serve ice cream. Over 40!!! And have Hudsonville hand scoop ice cream. And a food menu that even has broasted chicken. A winner!!!

They have a huge menu for such a small shop. The broasted chicken is a town favorite but if you like Nachos Supreme...you will want to share your lunch. Its big. Really great place, I've called on my way home from work and picked up supper many a time. Really nice inside too - bright and happy.

Never disappointed! Have never had to wait more than 10 minutes for takeout. Love the cozy old school atmosphere and their amazing flurries and slushes!! I couldn't imagine our little village without Malt Shop!

We stop here often when passing through town. The broasted chicken is the best in the state. Cooked to perfection and so juicy. You can watch them bread it and cook it right after you order it. We have had many of the other meals as well and never been disappointed but the chicken is what keeps up coming back.

Neat little malt shop. Great service, food was average but you have large variety of soft serve ice cream choices as well as Michigan made hand dipped ice cream.
