Rich Delicious Ice Cream, But I Was Expecting More

I wish i could give this place 3.5 stars and not 4 or 3. Went here the other day a quick pit stop because it was still too early for dinner, but we were starving. There is seating on the outside if one wants to sit outside and enjoy the weather. The inside decor does take one back to an... read more

I've been coming here for over 50 years. The food is OK, the service is very spotty, but the ice cream - !!! The sundaes are awesome, with fresh whipped cream. Not cheap, but you can't beat the ice cream sundaes at Krisch's.

The over priced Sundaes are delicious with fresh whipped cream served. The Food menu has fortunately taken on a new look and this is a good thing. Looking for hand dipped chocolate bunnies at the holidays - this is your place. Great old fashion ice cream parlor. Service lacks.

We went to Krisch’s Restaurant & Ice Cream Parlour yesterday. We both ordered pastrami on rye, I had it on rye toast. Our sandwiches were a bit dry, we both gave them the benefit of the doubt by saying the meat was lean, not fatty. They needed a little bit of fat to make it juicy, but then her bread... More

This is a great place to go with families and friends. They have a big menu with breakfast,lunch,dinner, &ice cream. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is set up as an old school ice cream parlor which is very cool.

I have been going to Krisch's for years and honestly have always felt they were over priced, but for a old fashion ice-cream parlor I was willing to pay the price. I went to Krisch's tonight as I do generally about once a week and we ordered our usual sundae to find out it went from $12.50 to $15.99! What... More

We have been going to Krisch's for decades and always enjoyed the food and ice cream. Pies are excellent, too! The menu expanded over time and prices increased dramatically but the service did not improve. It was always slow, not much luck ever getting a refill on a soda which of course is built into the price of the drinks.... More

This restaurant has been around for generations in Massapequa and had a much needed face lift a few years ago. The food is excellent, all with fresh ingredients and deserts (incl pies and ice cream) are home made, not a fancy place, but great for a good meal, a burger, some dish your mom made like spaghetti and meatballs, meatloaf...

My family and I have been to Krisch's dozens of times and we are never ever disappointed. The food is always great and their ice cream is awesome. It is like an old time diner and ice cream parlor. You could go for a meal and dessert or many people just stop on in for their delicious ice cream. They... More
