About us

In a sense it was destiny.
The son of a cheesemaker and grandson of a Wisconsin farmer,
George Culver spent the early part of his career inspecting and
grading dairy farms for the Wisconsin Dairies Cooperative.
While George was out calling on area dairy farms, Ruth Culver 
was home joyfully raising their three children, instilling in them
the small-town, Midwest values she herself had come to know
growing up in Sauk City.

In 1961, George and Ruth seized an opportunity to buy their
first restaurant. With no formal training, only Ruth’s warm
and gracious hospitality and George’s natural command of
the kitchen, the two proved a great team. With their kids
growing up serving guests and learning firsthand about
hospitality and delicious food cooked to order, the Culver
family’s team approach became the model of many successful
restaurants and supper clubs to come.
Then, in 1984 came an idea for a restaurant no one could
resist. Craig combined a love for his mom’s homemade
hamburgers with his favorite childhood vacation treat, Fresh
Frozen Custard, creating our signature combination:
Culver’s ButterBurgers and Fresh Frozen Custard.
