I eat there about 5 times a year with a men's group. The food is true to its style; diners who want gourmet food should go elsewhere. Atmosphere is casual, and service is generally very good.

Okay, I love the 50's, but this joint needs a little table and decor update - even for a 50's place. The food is okay, but nothing really stands out on my two recent visits. It seems priced at a level I would expect better food. Service was great, cheeseburger was okay - nothing really worth a return trip. Most... More

I had been to the 50's Grill years back and had fond memories of it. The decor is fun but could possibly be a bit cleaner. The malts were amazing but like the food they were a bit more expensive then necessary. The waitress was very sweet, fun and helpful. The nachos were dry and were bland. The burgers were... More

I recently went there with my in-laws for a birthday celebration. I fell in love with this little gem straight away. The staff were very welcoming from start to finish and took great care of us (we were a party of ten) from start to finish. The menu has all the great comfy fare you are looking for on a... More

I have never been disappointed here. Whether stopping for lunch or dinner or reserving pies and cake for the holidays, the quality never ends.

The 50’s Grill is located on Brooklyn Blvd just about a block northwest of Highway 100 in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. It is also located across the street from the big Sears store and the old Brookdale Shopping Center. This restaurant used to be the old Farrels Ice Cream Parlour and I know that since I worked there as a teenager.... More

This is one of my go to restaurants. Homemade food, desserts, malts, burgers & fries. I love there homemade soups & they have homemade dinners like Turkey, stuffing & mashed potatoes; meatloaf, hamburger steak & others. Prices are reasonable.

This is a fun place for families; as mentioned before the decor is vintage 50's. The waitresses wear poodle skirts and cute blouses. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We did have to wait a bit for our food; we were there for lunch on a Sunday and it wasn't overly busy. Our entrees were served hot. The reason I... More

The food here is good and they maintain made from scratch. Burgers are good. They have a large menu and some things can be great and others off. They serve an individual loaf of French bread with many entrees. Today that bread was cold, not warm. They are known for shakes and malts, with many flavors. Today our malt was... More
