We went a few times during our visit and enjoyed the Custard. Liked that they also served one non-dairy product which was very good. They also served food but, we did not order any.

I love this place it's so nostalgic! I love the frozen custard and the cookie dough toppings! Also love that they have vegan and vegetarian options such as the vegan frozen custard and the veggie burger.

Stopped in twice on our one-week visit to Petoskey. Really fun environment and great treats. We were bad, and just stopped both times for dessert. Can't beat it!

Retro little soda/shake shop. Soda fountain, malts, milkshakes, sundaes, you name it. Our frozen custard was better than what Culver's offers. Would definitely stop here again.

I was excited to see that they had malts as most places don't- they only have shakes but I love the malt flavor. But..... I didn't care for it made with frozen custard as much as hard hand dipped ice cream. My mother & sister...More
