Had a great cone at Zems. This is really a jewel in the little town of Canastota. They have tons of flavors in both hard and soft serve ice cream. They also have lots of creations you can try. Prices are reasonable. I never played golf but the course looks fun.

A local owned and operated ice cream place that offers a small miniature golf course for the whole family to enjoy. I visit often during the summer months.

My family loves Zems We are lucky enough to live within walking distance (although not so lucky if you're trying to lose weight), and we go to Zems many times during the summer.

It's not really fair to compare an ice cream place to a sit-down restaurant; I'll just say that this is a really good, family-friendly ice cream shop, with plenty of trees to sit under on a hot day.
