If you're looking for a place for a burger and shake, run -- don't walk -- to this place. For $10, you get a burger, fries, and a shake. Everything was tasty. Granted, the burger/fries/shake deal was their special, so not everything on the menu...More

I had the cheeseburger and it was quite delicious. All the ingredients looked and tasted fresh. Apparently the beef patties and buns are made on site. The milk shake was great as well! The place had a nice diner feel.

9/25/11 The Milk Bottle Restaurant had a arson fire that also burned down the restaurant next door. We had a grand opening in May 2012 and are back to serving milk shakes from our own rich homemade ice cream. We have won 2 national ice cream awards and also have the best hamburgers served on our homemade buns and loaded with a quarter pound of extra lean handmade tender all beef patty. Come and dine at our marble tables and enjoy the art deco decor. We are open at 11:00AM Daily and close at 4:00PM Sunday but stay open untill 8:00PM Monday thru Saturday! For $9.75 the #1 special includes a Delux homemade Cheese Burger, Side of hand cut French Fries, or homemade potato, or macaroni or green salad, or homemade cobler or pie , and a milk Shake! This special is offered Daily!
