Best Ice Cream Experience around

If your looking for a great sit down family style or even individual ice cream bar then Cappies it is. There are plenty of places to get ice cream in the Amsterdam area but Cappies provides plenty of indoor seating including a long bar with stools. The staff is friendly and quick!

We have been going to Cappie's for 20 years or so. Always consistent and reliable. Menu choices are typical drive-in fare. Great steamed soft sandwich buns. Usually don't get ice cream but it may now be home made but used to be Hershey's brand. Very clean interior.

Home made ice cream for over 40 years and while your there try one of their great hot dogs, hamburgers or chicken sandwiches. Make it a stop for a huge sundae, banana split or cone and you will satisfied and ready to make a return trip. A... More

You can always count on this drive in to serve great fast foods. Cooked from scratch and just fine for a family outing. Their home made ice cream is also excellent. And if you are nostalgic, they do offer car-hop service in the summer! Its unfortunate that they close down for the fall & winter months, but it's in New... More

We have been here several times over the years, homemade ice cream is very good! I had the special - peach yogurt, delicious, which had chunks of peaches throughout. Husband had banana split. Never had anything other than ice cream here, the rest of the food was grilled and fried. If you park outside and leave your lights on, someone... More

Just a good ol' fashioned ice cream parlor with an additional menu of short-order food items (mostly fried, unfortunately). Cappie's is the place to go in Amsterdam or the surrounding areas if you are looking for the best in homemade ice cream. With a good variety of flavors, you can get a simple cone, or get fancy with a shake,... More

If you are in Amsterdam this Summer, this is the place to go for icecream - the hard, home made kind. All sorts of flavors, but our household votes the Banana as the best! And a small - is HUGE! Little kids are best off w/ the "baby" cone - and trust me - it's no preemie!

We love going when we're in town to get the delicious homemade ice cream. I think the onion rings/french fries/hamburgers are also pretty good, but the ice cream is some of the best I've ever had! They have car side service which is really cool too! The mosquitoes need to be taken care of though. There are too many bees,... More

I hope it was a one time experience, but I'm not sure it was. I went to get ice cream with a friend because I heard so much about this place, but we were ignored for a good 10 minutes and once we did put in our orders we saw other tables who ordered food were checked on 3-4 times,... More
