Ice Cream and Shakes to die for

The food is great but a little over priced. Everything from the ice cream to the shakes, malts and whip cream are made on premises nothing is bought in except the ingredients. The burger platers are a little pricey with the cost of the desert. If you don't mind paying $100 + for 4 burgers w/fries... read more

My husband and I took our granddaughter for lunch last week. The food is average and the prices a high for what you get. It has been a Massapequa staple for generations and I guess you pay for the historic aspect of the restaurant.

Step back in time. This restaurant has great food with an atmosphere that makes you feel like you are in an old fashioned diner/ice cream parlor. Once in a while I treat myself to an ice cream--very delicious. Also fabulous homemade chocolates. Pricey but worth it. I give their chocolates as gifts when I want to give something special.

Went to kirch's for some family time didn't realize we would be paying dinner prices. The ice cream is good but 12 for a Sunday. I guess I'm old fashioned and expect everyday to be Wednesday. That being said ice cream was more than the average person can eat, but delicious.

The food is good. I think the prices are a bit high for a luncheonette. It is very crowded And it does look a bit run down....

Overrated ice cream, they try to look old but it is just really run down. The owners just rake in the money and give very little back and the place looks it. The food and and service are fair at best and overpriced and I've been here many times over the years and watched it grow old, more expensive and... More

It is the best old fashioned 1950's luncheonette/ice cream parlor on the island. Everything is homemade. It is always crowded, no wonder!

My wife and I took a Labor Day ride and stopped at Krisch's luncheonette / ice cream parlor. It's overflowing with 1950's-60's nostalgia - chrome tables and chairs, soda machines at the counter, et al. We stopped for ice cream and were treated to large sundaes. We didn't order large - they were simply large. We had banana, chocolate chip... 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... 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.
