Can you picture an old school soda shop in your head? Honestly what your picturing is probably something out of a movie of an earlier time in America’s history. Maybe your thinking of some small mom and pop shop back home. Either way Pikes lives up to the image. Cozy, old school, and best of all featuring a huge array of home cooked meals that give a whole new definition to comfort food. The menu brings back the feel of great American diners, while still being diverse and having enough options to allow anyone to eat here.

The menu at Pike’s is easily one of the best and most diverse of a restaurant that I’ve been to. It has everything you could expect from a more modern restaurant (Salads, mozzarella sticks, tacos), but also has a few gems that really stand out. They offer build your own burgers and sandwiches, as well as pre-made options such as a “Panther Black and Blue Burger”. Their specialty entrees are include such items as “Meat Loaf Platter”, “Thanksgiving Dinner”, and my personal favorite “Chicken Casserole”. The best food they have there however are not on the menu. They have a fresh selection of homemade baked goods cooked fresh every day! The treats very and are dependent on the season, making it a surprise every time!

The pricing of Pike’s Old Fashioned Soda Shop is one of my favorite parts of their restaurant. The entree’s while large and homemade are generally around $6.99, and at the most $10.99. Appetizers can go anywhere from $5.99-$8.99 but take it from me, they are just as large as the entrees that you order. So make sure to keep that in mind! The baked goods pricing is decided based on the item in question and is located at the restaurant itself. Soda with ice cream (Rootbeer Floats), or milkshakes/malts are a nice affordable 4.50!
Pike’s Old Fashioned Soda Shop is a spectacular restaurant that gives you an authentic dining experience, along with good service, and some delicious food. I’ve been there a few times on dates over the years and nobody has left unhappy before. Plus I must say being able to take someone out on a date in uptown without totally destroying my bank account is always a huge perk. Either way though, whether taking someone on a nice date, going out with friends, or just deciding that you deserve a treat after a hard week of work. Pike’s will 100% deliver the satisfaction you or others want and deserve.
