We stopped for a break on our drive from Michigan to New York state in the quaint little town of Vermillion, Ohio. We were excited to discover an old-fashioned soda fountain in the town. We ordered milkshakes and watched them being made. They were so...More

Stopped here for lunch, the service was quick and very good. Cute 1950's and prior decor-very eclectic. More of a sandwich shop, than a true soda shoppe in my opinion, as their only ice cream is vanilla. They then use flavors to make floats, Malts,...More

Twice during our short stay in Vermilion we visited the Soda Grill. Very delightful wait staff, wide array of sandwiches and ICE CREAM. Had my first ice cream soda in decades. And an Egg Creme the second visit. You must go here when in town!
