Went here after my sons baseball game and had a burger and curly fries. The burger was one of the best I have ever had. My son loved his chicken fingers, my daughter really enjoyed her chicken finger wrap. Clean restaurant, great prices and friendly staff!!

We got the name of this diner from Buttercrumb Bakery. We stopped by on the way home from Darien Lake amusement park. We were waiting for a while at a table, till we figured it out that we need to find the menu and order it. There is no waitresses to take your order at your table. So when you... More

We stopped here on the way home from a trip to arcade. Ice cream was the object of our stop and we were well rewarded! Warning: portions are pretty big, we were a bit overwhelmed by the size of orders so keep that in mind. The ice cream was all tasty. Service was excellent as well.

Ice cream at Johnny Bear's is an experience! A single scoop is almost more than you can eat, but who could leave even one bite?? I remember this restaurant from years ago but can't remember the name. Help me anyone?

Stopped here with my son and he really enjoyed the curly fries and chicken fingers. He also had a great milkshake. They have many choices on the menu and the staff was very friendly. There is a large dining area and we saw many families there who had just come from baseball games. It was also very clean.

Stopped for ice cream on the way home. Great service, great selection, good prices. My little boy asked for strawberry but when he saw his sister's cotton candy ice cream was blue and purple - he started crying about his choice. We solved the dilemma. What impressed me most though was that the manager came over and asked if he... More
