After the State Park come here for a meal

After stopping at the state park step back in time and go to the Drive In. Great food and great environment to visit. A lot of families are here and the small town charm goes a long way.

This is a classic drive-in sure to bring back memories for those of us who remember them from "back in the day," and a great place to create new memories. Family oriented and well done with one of the nicest mini-golf courses in the area! The food is what you would expect ranging from classic dinners to burger baskets. A... More

We stopped here for lunch and all our food was great! Hannah our waitress was excellent! The favorite was the fish n chips, although my daughter had a fabulous sugar cookie with her kids meal. We also got a coupon for 2 for 1 kid mini golf that we unfortunately couldn't use. Would recommend to anyone!

We stop here every time we're in the area as the atmosphere is fun. The mini-golf is right next door and the servers still come out in roller skates which is fun for the kids to see. The burgers are pretty good and we love the ice-cold root beer.

Just like the drive-ins in the "old" days. The burgers are pretty good. You can tell they are fresh, hand made. The ice cream is pretty good, too. The kid's meal burger is not so great - its not a normal bun - I don't know what that was. The service is super-great. They really take care of you. No... More

Great burgers. Friendly service. Very retro. They actually hook the food tray on your window! You will be glad you stopped. I think you get tokens for the mini golf if you go during the summer. The mini golf course is RIGHT behind the restaurant.

We were here the last weekend they were open for the fall. Maybe that is why it was so fun and so delicious! The crisp air, beautiful foliage, lots of litte kids laughing. But really we had the homemade root beer - oh, so good! and the hamburgers were really good. Not crazy about the sweet potato fries, but everything... More

My husband had a hamburger with the works; I had the Fish and Chips basket. We also enjoyed mugs of their homemade Root Beer. Everything tasted very fresh and was delivered piping hot to our car...

This was our second visit to the Drive In, and we enjoyed both meals. Really fun 50's theme with option to eat in car or at tables on patio. The batterfried fish and onion rings had great batter and were nicely crunchy. Make sure to plan enough time for a round of mini golf as well.

This was a fun stop to grab lunch. Staff was very good and friendly! Great atmosphere and the burgers and malt were good. They have mini-golf also behind the restaurant so a great place if you have kids with you.
