Old Time Ice Cream Parlor

For those of a certain age ice cream parlors like Krisch's hearken to the long ago world of their youth or their parent's coming of age. The term 'soda jerk' had meaning. An egg cream could be had outside of Brooklyn. Krisch's is an ageless wonder of an ice cream parlor & burger joint. Beloved by... read more

I have been taking my family to Kirsch's for about 25 years. I love the ice-cream and the old fashion ambiance. The only thing I would suggest is never use a Groupon there. I had brought some of my friends and their grandchildren there they so enjoyed the meal and ice cream... When I went to pay the bill and... More

I'm reluctant to tell anyone that this place really exists. It's a throwback to the NY luncheonette of the 1950's, complete with boomerang Formica. The food is great, I had a half pound burger, but they have an extensive menu. However, the ice cream is AMAZING! They even have a "Kitchen Sink" on the menu. If you go now, they... More

if you are looking for an old fashioned ice cream shop this is the place right in Massapequa. Try a burger deluxe with an old fashioned malted milk shake...worth the calories. Don't forget a tuna salad sandwich or a black and white ice cream soda

this is another great local MASSAPEQUA place. Long in history, this "diner" offer home made ice cream and candy. Get in line around the holidays! The more standard fare is great. Burgers, pancakes, omelettes are all great and filling. dinner menu items are also a great plus! We love it and so will you.

It's an old time ice cream parlor that has been around forever and a day. The ice cream is homemade and wonderful. Never ate anything else

I went to Krishch's for breakfast with my grand daughter. IT certainly has that old time luncheonette look and feel about. My grand daughter thought it was really cool - counter stools that spin, pictures on the walls of old time Massapequa etc. I ordered a basic scrambled eggs, toast, home fries and bacon w coffee. My grand daughter ordered... More

Krisch's reminds me of the type of ice cream parlor I went to in my childhood. There aren't many family-run businesses like this left. The food is homemade, the portions are generous and the ambiance is nostalgic - think 1950's diner. The menu is huge and the selections diverse. You can order most any sandwich on a pretzel roll, which... More

Old fashioned at it's best. An ice cream parlor, but also so much more. A great meal any time of day. Reasonable prices and homemade quality. Love to browse the chocolate selection at Easter. You can't go wrong.

People and the service are great. The food is very good. It is "Dinner" type food, not fancy but tastes great. The dessert ( Ice Cream ) quality and selection is what brings me to Kirsch's. The last time I went was to bring my three grand daughters. They loved it. They want to go again. ASAP
