My crispy jalapeno chicken was bland and not remotely crispy. The onion rings and cheese curds were covered in salt!

On Wednesday and Thursday from 4-8 pm, they offer AYCE fried chicken for $7.99 and it comes with 2 sides and a roll. They start you off with 3 pieces - usually a breast, thigh and a drumstick or wing then a team member comes around with a basket of chicken and you can pick what you want. We've been... More

Every day this location of Culver's has a flavor of the day special which is a small cone for a dollar! It is the best value anywhere. The cones come with lots of good stuff mixed in. For example, Oreos, M&M's etc.

While visiting in TC, we got in late and I was hungry, so at 9PM you don't look at fancy - just something to fill your belly. Culver's was close to our motel and off we went. I ordered the shrimp dinner w/ fires and Cole slaw. The restaurant was very clean and the staff was friendly - even at... More

I haven't had a bad meal there. We live about 45 minutes from TC and once we're done with shopping and we are headed home, try going past Culvers is really hard to do ! Hubby loves their burgers & the fries. I'm always trying a dinner. Today was Walleye fish, I went for it, and SO glad I did.... More

When I come to town to visit my family, we always make sure to eat here (or at the other location in town) at least once, often on the way home from the airport. It probably says something that I live like 4 states away from the nearest location, but I still have their app on my phone, so that... More

Like a familiar friend, Culver's was the first place we stopped at to get a bite to eat when we arrived at Traverse City. It was clean, inviting and the staff were pleasant, as always (I have yet to find a Culver's with sour-faced staff). We dined in and the wait was only about 7 minutes to get our piping... More

Chums corner Culvers is the best and the cleanest fast food restaurant I ve ever seen. Pot roast melt is mouth watering.

Recently discovered Culver's. Definitely good burgers, fish, and custard. VERY clean. A little pricey. Cooked to order so you do have a slight wait .Wish they had a cheap burger. Often you'd like a snack and not a meal.
