We frequent this restaurant 2-3 times a month with our 2 1/2 year old. This is THE spot in media to take your family if your children are 10 and under. The staff is patient, friendly and personable.

In terms of food, this is a non-alcoholic environment that caters to a high-carb, high-kiddie food clientele. They have every burger, French fry and hot dog combo you could ever imaginable. Definitely not a place for dieters!

Front Street fountain is a great place for families. It has a huge chalkboard for kids and even has kids tables. All kids love it. The food is just like an old fashioned soda fountain. Food is so good. I had grilled cheese and sweet potato fries. The sweet potato fries were one of the best!

We love eating at The Front Street Fountain. There is no other restaurant like it in the Media Area. A large soda fountain area, with a model train running above the fountain greats you when you enter, kids love seeing that. This restaurant has the makings for a pleasant weekday lunch away from the office or home or a wonderful lunch or dinner time with family or friends. The staff works as a team and it is evident in the fine service. The owners are ever present and very pleasant, customer service is important to them you can tell. The food's quality is exceptional, we have not had one thing from the menu, and we have tried many, that we did not like. The menu is unique and has something for everyone. My grandchildren love eating at this establishment. It makes for a pleasant experience for everyone. My husband and I look forward to going to dinner on a Friday or Saturday night and then strolling thru the town of Media. The ice cream is an added bonus, I can't leave without having a sundae, Bassetts ice cream Yummy!!!!! Front Street is open for lunch and dinner everyday with the exception of Sundays. It is located across the street from the Media Library, so give it a try you will not be sorry.

Great place to go with kids. When they aren't eating they happily keep busy in the kids' room. Adults can relax and have uninterupted conversations close by. The ice cream is Bassett's, one of the best brands ever.

Where do you go when some of the family have already eaten and some have not? Try the Front Street Fountain. A couple blocks off of State Street but easy to find. Plenty of parking; we found a spot right across the street. Wife only wanted dessert, and she had a hot fudge sundae. My daughter and I had cheeseburgers while the grandson had a hot dog and sundae.
The only time he's not talking is when he's eating and he didn't say a peep which means he enjoyed himself. Having a root beer float with my burger was a great combination. Plenty of seating, reasonable prices, relaxed atmosphere, very good ice cream and burgers. The owner also stopped at the table to ask how everything was. Nice touch. Off the main drag from the pizza and fast food places, but worth a visit.
