Overall food was ok. Greasy and filling. You eat this knowing it is probably not the best for you. Ice cream was ok nothing special. Cashier lady in front is very sweet. Easy going atmosphere.

The place wasn't even busy and the service was abominably slooooooow. Burgers were thin and dry. After such a long wait, they should have at least tasted better. Very good, thick chocolate shake.

Ice cream was ok. The lines are long and the staff was not too friendly. They close dining area even when there are lines of people waiting for ice cream.

Order the homemade ice cream and avoid the fish & chips. Very greasy and tasteless. Easy parking, outdoor tables and family friendly

First, don't be fooled by the name - it's not the drive-in of the 60's where food is being delivered to your car by someone on roller skates... but we knew this before going in and it has no affect on my rating. I brought my daughter here to have her experience her first ever banana split sundae and when... More

We only had ice cream but was gooooood. Cool little old timey place, burgers, fries and such. Seems like a reliable type of place for some quick eats.

Of course we stop here! Ice cream, ice cream sundaes, ice cream floats- daily hit for us when not in East Hamptons or Sag Harbor. We play some miniature gold down the road and finish off the night here. If starving order side of French fries with your ice cream.

My son got some chicken nuggets and I got fish and chips. It was all good and cheap! There are outdoor tables and indoor tables. There is an ATM if you need it.

This is a popular ice cream place. Crowded, noisy, and no place to eat inside, but it is 'the' ice cream place in downtown Montauk.

We have been going to this place for years! The service and food never changes! The prices are are high but this is Montauk we are talking about. I have no problem paying good money for good food! Excellent
