A little pricey for small cone costing almost $5 but had a child asking Mommy for icecream on a hot day. She enjoyed it!

Fantastic homemade ice cream. Peanut butter blast (with Reese's PB cup pieces) for me, Banana with peanut butter & fudge for my wife. You can taste the freshness.

This place is awesome. The guy at the counter was so accommodation and kind. He basically scooped me the best cone of my life and I never thanked him for it - haha, but seriously. I told him what I liked and he asked if he could surprise me. It was excellent. I also got a burger, which I ended... More

They use fresh meat, not frozen. Fast food at its best, and don't forget about the ice cream. Get a pint to go. At night, the line is out the door.

Great ice cream and a huge selection of flavors and toppings, most of them home made. Its very affordable, which is rare in montauk nowadays. Big John burguer yummmm. The owner and employees are very nice. We visit this place on a weekly basis.

Fast food service - with-out the fast food taste. Very good burgers, fries & sandwiches. Frozen yogurt was excellent too. Try the Orchard cherry flavor, so true to taste - does not taste overly sweet or fake.

Crepes, pancakes are always good. However, had waffles with fresh strawberry's that was a little pricey.
