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... More

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.

I had some olive burgers they were dry and had gristle chunks in them aka bone and sinew. Kind of made me want to puke. The chairs are uncomfortable. The ordering process is confusing if You have never been there. They have servers but just for drinks, the cups are too small. felt like a cold atmosphere

Great old fashioned frozen custard. Didn't have anything else, but that alone would bring us back. Place was clean and staff friendly. Looked like others were enjoying this summer treat.

I like the idea of the drive in oldies type look...the food is just ok, but it is a cute little place. Too bad they couldn't do more with the menu.
