Shakes, shakes, shakes are GREAT and big! All type of very good burguers and sandwiches. Truffle fries very good. Good service. Its a 30 year place in the Us one in Miami, just by sunset mall. Fair price and great quality. Been going for 23 years.

The menu is completely different from what we remember as the original Swensen's. We are UM alumni who came here often in the 90s so obviously things have changed. We were surprised at the large selection and addition of adult beverages. We were not at all disappointed with all of our specialty burgers. Our favorite things were the starter of... More

This was my first time and I wish I was not on a diet. Let me start off with the shake I had. I originally asked for a triple berries smoothie, trying to make a healthy choice, but they told me they ran out of smoothie mix. They made my smoothie with vanilla ice cream and let me tell you... More

We always go to Swensens for dessert and it is to die for. We decided to have dinner on our last visit and I was very pleasantly surprised. They have changed their menu recently and have delicious Angus burgers comparable to what you would expect to find in a fancier restaurant. We enjoyed the food very much and our server... More

Haven't been here in about 3 years or so. I wanted to introduce my fiancé to this awesome place. I've been coming here for over 20 years. Needless to say it's not so awesome anymore. Unfortunately I found out they had sold the restaurant. Worst part was that the new owners decided to change the menu :(! The food was... More

Been coming here for over 30 years. Menu has changed. The burgers are gourmet. Ice cream creations are delicious. Family oriented. Music tunes are cool.

As a long time customer, we had not been there for months. We were greeted with the news that the restaurant had been sold and there was a new menu. Prices were about 50% higher than before. Decor had not changed and it is fairly worn after decades of use. We ordered meals including fries with a request not to... More

We were here on vacation looking for some good ice cream since it was stifling hot, so we tried Swensen's. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. They have many yummy flavors of hand dipped ice cream. My husband and son chose a large shake and they said it was very good, but we didn't consider the size we received a... More
