50's style with a smile!

GREAT stuff! Simple and fast. Many choices and frozen custard to fix that sweet tooth! You can sit outside in the summer and bike up to the place from the local area. Service is great and friendly! 50's themed makes you feel like your back in time!

If looking for a mom and pop type ice cream parlor, then you can get the usual menu items at this location. You can take your delight on a stroll south along the bluff for a beautiful view of the bay as well.

My husband & I stopped in for lunch on our visit to petoskey. It's a cute little place but I was disappointed in the food. My hamburger was $6 - that did not include anything - was barely warm. I would probably not come back

My 10 year old son and I had just completed a 50 mile bike ride ( his first time pedaling the whole way), and we stopped here to celebrate. We were pretty hungry and ordered some food and when the waitress found out what my son had done, she brought him a Root-beer float for free. It was very nice... More

This place caters to the tourist crowd for sure. The restaurant is quite small and it was very busy on a Thursday night. Tables are way too close together for the servers to bring out the food to the tables. Burgers do not come with fries, so you will end up spending nearly $10 for a MacDonald's type of burger...

We loved the custard and the root beer is out of this world!!! My husband has a strawberry cake sundae and a pecan praline sundae and he said is was superb. The place is decorated like a 50's diner, so cool. The waitstaff was the best!! We will be back for sure.

I was so excited to find a no-sugar added frozen custard, and they had it in chocolate too! It is so hard to find, along with reduced sugar toppings as well. It was fabulous, best sugar free frozen dessert I have had!

We went here after dinner one night and enjoyed the custard ice cream cones. Very good quality custard and nice place to visit. It has a cool old car out front and the place gives a 1960's era type feel. The bike path goes right behind it, which is cool. Good place for custard.

Every year on our golf adventure in Northern Michigan we have to make a stop (or two, or three) to the Bob In Again for frozen custard -- primarily the bear claw. It's amazing and they have different kinds of daily flavors to try out.
