Michael's was a nice place to stop and have a quick sweet bite. There is a good and varied menu of mixes and toppings for the yogurt. They service burgers and fries as well as shakes and Malts.

Stopped here primarily for the frozen custard but also tried a few food items. Desserts were tasty and toppings fresh. The chicken fingers were very good, fries and hot dog average. Food is pricey here, desserts are reasonably priced. Outdoor seating is dated but still...More

Stopped here after dinner for some dessert. They only have Chocolate, Vanilla and the flavor of the day plus a bunch of sundae selections. They don't have choices for sizes (at least for the regular custard) so a cup of chocolate custard with cookie dough...More

Nice selection of sundaes and shakes beyond regular custard. Nice outdoor seating area. A little expensive, but a nice place for a once in a while treat. Custard very creamy. Staff friendly and efficient.

We get around the cost of individual servings by purchasing a pint and then splitting it. Some of their flavors like malt and mint chocolate chip are just super.

Best frozen custard in the Midwest! Michael's Frozen Custard is a Madison tradition. A variety of scrumptious flavors!

Traveled to Milwaukee a couple of years ago and LOVED Kopp's custard! This does not compare! Order the chocolate if you go, the vanilla is just that, very vanilla and plain.

We used to come here all the time but the prices kept going up. Bring the cost of a basic sundae down and we'll become regulars once again because it's great custard.

Great frozen custard. I had the peanut butter fudge cake. It's really good. It's really creamy and covered in two of my favorite things! My husband comes from St.Louis so Ted Drews will always be our favorite. Since we can't always go there this place...More
