Great service

Old fashioned service by the owner himself. Awesome fried mushrooms. Onion rings looked great too. For a diner experience it was great.

This is a great place for the family to go get ice cream. The state park and a putt-putt golf facility are right next door. The inside is small but lots of seating outside to enjoy the great weather.

Been eating here since childhood, and now I bring my kids here. Great food, but even better ice cream.

I live very close to Mussell Beach, so I come here fairly often. EXCELLENT food, especially the Philly cheesesteak and onion rings! Fries are great, too! 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 often makes up for the wait time. They are... 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!
