Great place

We were on the island for a week and thought this was a great place. Stopped in for snack, late lunch and breakfast and was very happy with all 3. Even had pizza one night as an appetizer at a family dinner. It was nice to be able to sit outside with our dog and enjoy the weather. The people... read more

The place everyone goes for ice cream on a hot summer's night. Great breakfast, lunches. Good service - it is just the place to go.

Ordered pizza from here. Could have rung the grease out into a cup. Looks like it is run by teenagers. Cook was more interested in texting than watching the food he was cooking. We decided to give it another try. They were out of the first couple of things we ordered. We we did have was not that greatest. The... More

Our hotel owner told us to go there for pizza...wrong! Overpriced, small, no flavor, minimal toppings....just not good in general. The food is prepared by young teenagers and the owner doesn't seem to get off her chair at the register. She doesn't even see the quality of the food being served. Witnessed some poor hygiene standards while making food and... More

One burger, small fry, large Pepsi=$17.38 and they forgot my Pepsi. Best burger I have ever had, way too small, crappy service, overpriced. One waitress began crying when a customer asked her to correct her order...uncomfortable atmosphere, pricy.

We went here for breakfast and regretted it. The coffee tasted like hot water, the hash was burnt, the eggs were undercooked. And a local had actually said the breakfast had "improved." The wonderful bakery down the road is only a couple dollars more and is excellent.

We had great breakfast, fast service and friendly staff. I enjoyed the breakfast burrito! The place has space indoor and outdoors to eat.

Great selection of hand dipped ice cream. Generous portions and good service. I think they serve Hudsonville ice cream....can't go wrong!

Just a fun place to have a snack - french fries or ice cream. Great shakes! There's a little something for everyone and sitting outside makes it even better. The whole inside has been updated and it's much nicer.
