I know the family that owns MB and they are wonderful people. Service has been somewhat inconsistent in the past (usually slow), but the food... read more

If you have a desire for good "homemade" food, you must make a trip to Mussel Beach. The place is not fancy, very comfortable and casual however. You will not miss if you have their coney hot dogs, onion rings, or nachos. Oh, maybe you are in the mood for a burger and hand cut French fries. Yum! You must... More

Coney dogs were great, onion rings were made fresh. Friendly and across the street from the park/lakefront. It's a cash only place.

This place is locally owned and operated. The family that owns it lives above it. The french fries are great. They have a very good selection of ice cream products if you have a sweet tooth. They are known as an ice cream place but dinner there is good too.

Awesome food and variety, within walking distance from the State Park! You can eat indoors or outside. Complete ice cream choices from cones to shakes. The food is hot when you get it and reasonably priced. I say try it!

Ice cream is great at a reasonable price...always appears busy but don't let long lines and abundant cars fool you. The line moves quickly. So many options!

Lots of choices hubby had apple pie ice cream in waffle cone I had just a scoop of peanut butter brownie and that hit the spot.... More

It was one of the best burgers I have eaten. We also had their onion rings, which were freshly cooked and not greasy like some places. The handcut fries were very good and the portion size was awesome. My daughter couldn't even eat all of her fries with her 10 piece wings. The prices were very reasonable. Unfortunately we didn't...
