A PIECE OF LOCAL HISTORY
WHERE YOU’D EXPECT TO FIND A SODA FOUNTAIN… AND ACTUALLY DO!
The restaurant is now owned by John Sipe, Tom Davis, and Robin Ortman, who have more than 70 years combined management experience at Hinkle’s Restaurant and the former pharmacy, as well as other operations.
What is all the excitement about?
The soda fountain of yesteryear is now at Hinkle’s Restaurant!
Come and enjoy some ice cream, a soda “jerk”, a sundae or a float while seated at a historic soda fountain.
We are here to please!
Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner
Might as well admit it: there’s only one place in town where friends can sit in the same booth and enjoy the same recipes as their grandparents!
Private Meeting Spaces
With our newly designed restaurant and dining area, you can now book a private meeting room to chat, eat, and make memories with friends.
Murphy’s Mercantile Gift Shop
We added a special gift shop, Murphy’s Mercantile & Co, so you can grab something special and unique for a loved one!
What We Offer
The menu at Hinkle's is vast and varied to ensure that every customer will have an option to titiliate their taste buds with.
Hinkle's is committed to using only the freshest ingredients. The fresher the components, the better the final product
Delicious food is prepared every day by our talented chefs. All it takes is one whiff after you enter the doors to be hooked.
