Had my eats in short order and sat on their bench on the small patio, watching Grafton activity unfold. Good choice on my part. I'd return.

The ice cream I had was standard soft serve twist with toppings. It was medium size and was $5.50. It was good.

This place has a really great menu and produce in season. They also offer tons of great desserts, shakes, etc. The frozen yogurt is wonderful and the flavors change often so there's always something for everyone. We were extremely pleased with the food and the service. Nice place.

Hot Dog's $2.80 each, Basket was $6.25 all plus tax, spent $15.75 and waited for 25 minutes for hot dogs. Waste of time and money. One person in... More

Sweet tooth calling? Welcome. Want a sandwich or burger? Check. Need something on the side with that burger? You betcha! The customer friendly people here welcome you. You can sit outside and eat under an umbrella or go through the drive through. There's even a room rental upstairs if you want to enjoy the quiet River town for a stay.... More

Stopped by for carry out dinner. Good friendly service, good food. reasonable prices. Had grilled chicken sandwiches. Tried the sugar free low fat frozen yogurt- I was pleasantly surprised it was very tasty. I would definately recommend the whole scoop for a quick bite.

Had the chocolate pecan caramel vanilla swirl which was excellent. Friendly service and a place to sit in the shade. They also have drive-through.

The 8 Yogurt is very good.........only 8 calories an ounce and the flavors are awesome. They change regularly. Some of my favorites, Cantaloupe (nope not kidding), Kahlua, and Pumpkin. But so many more. I can take the kids, friends and hubby and all get what they want and I can still eat something not bad for you. The food is... More
