Awesome food, excellent customer services. I have been eating there since the 90s. The service never changes.

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

Friendly service, interesting themed decor but over-priced for mediocre food. Menu is varied. Our dinners were lack luster and not worth the price. French bread was warm but just ok, salads were bland and primarily cheap iceberg lettuce although the dressings were tasty and may have been homemade.Fish and shrimp entrees taseted like generic food service purchases. Plus it seemed... More

Nicely done decor, the food not so much. My wife had a hamburger and fries. I had a turkey burger and a salad. The salad was good and my wife's fries were pretty decent. But the burgers were nothing to write home about. Both were over cooked and my turkey burger had been smashed so thin it hung way over... More

It's one of our favorite places and the kids just love it! Food is very tasty and has something for everyone to enjoy. Save room for some delicious desert.

I crave the chicken pot Pirandello have to make the trip to 50s Grill a few times each year. My husband always tries different things on the menu and has never been disappointed. You will never be disappointed in a meal here - portions are big and prices are average. They have malts and shakes and pies/cakes/cookies to take home... More

My sisters & I celebrated our 4 August birthdays here, and as we grew up through the 50's, we were thoroughly charmed by this restaurant. The decor, the food, the big thick malts served with the frosty malt can, and especially the helpful, friendly waitresses with their poodle skirts were fabulous! There are other 50's themed restaurants in the Mpls.... More
