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.

As we proceeded to leave this young Jamaican women with pigtails, behind the counter, started to accuse us of not paying for the ice cream which was a total fabrication.

Small ice cream shop that also offers burgers and fries. Be sure to bring cash because its all they accept. We enjoyed the banana fudge and black cherry ice cream but my favorite was the soft serve cone dipped in chocolate. Classic and delicious!

Loved the dinginess of the place, though the staff would not look at us when we ordered. The ice cream was delicious- great flavors, super creamy. Yes!

Always stop there for a vanilla cone with rainbow sprinkles when I'm in Montauk and it never disappoints. I hope they never change the atmosphere. Very 50's/60's and no matter how long the line is they keep it moving and always have a friendly smile.

Homemade ice cream that is one of the staples of Montauk. Not gelato, not fancy--just really good creamy flavorful ice cream that can turn your day (week/month/weekend) around. My dad takes me whenever I'm having a bad day and it cheers me right up. One of our guests bought us several pints as a thank you gift and it was... More
