Waited 1/2 hour for a table, and then 1/2 hour to order Had sundaes which were nothing special-ordinary sundaes not worth the wait Do not understand why people wait in line here!

I live near Eddie's and anyone who lives near it can tell you it is one of the best old-fashioned ice cream shops, well, anywhere. The room is very old school, with tile floor, marble counter, even a phone booth (sans phone) and lots of old style candies also for sale. They pretty much stick to ice cream, a few... More

We've been going to Eddie's Sweet Shop for over 50 years. They still whip the cream by hand, and the ice creams are also homemade. The hot fudge sundae with maple walnut ice cream is my favorite. Seating is limited and the counter is over fill, as well. It seems to be most crowded after dinner. It's worth the wait.

This is a classic soda parlor with bistro tables and a counter with stools. They make great shakes and such but the thing that impressed me was they make real Egg Creams! Hard to find those these days! Definitely worth a trip if you want to experience a throw back to the real deal.

Excellent ice cream, excellent toppings (overflowing onto the plate under the cup), the best whipped cream (seriously). Everything is made there except for the marshmallow and cones). Family owned and run--can't go wrong there. You will not find strange flavors (other than the pineapple-pistachio) and you might have to wait for a table, but it is worth it. Make sure... More

Great old fashioned ice cream parlor -- sundaes, malts etc. Homemade whipped cream. Wait can be a bit long on a summer Sunday -- but it is worth it. Near a movie theater (generally second run movies) if you want more to do. If you come from outside the neighborhood it is a 15 to 20 minute walk from the... More

Eddie's is an institution of ice cream In and around the forest hills zip codes. The fresh made butterscotch and ice cream always left me with another memory. However, the way that they make their shakes and malts is the way other companies should aspire to. I say when you go there, order whatever you like but remember when you... More

This ice cream shop reminds me of a place I went to when I was very young over 50 years ago in my home town. A quaint place with wooden stools at a counter, old fashion booths, and an area for lots of candy. The atmosphere is wonderful, & the shop is on its 4th owner, still making home made... More
