Great Ice Cream/Miss the diner for dinner.

Papa Jacks Ice cream is a great place to enjoy a cool dessert on a hot day. They have a huge selection of hard ice cream to go with the soft style. The staff are always cheerful and fantastic with kids. We do miss the diner not being open for dinner. They have a little grill truck set-up next... read more

The food was actually bad. Just bad. Dry meat, hard to finish. Maybe they had a bad day? For all the hoopla around town, we expected a much tastier, more juicy and fresh burger. We probably wouldn't go back since the Burger Shack is half a mile away.

You get a lot of ice cream for your money. They always have a vast variety of ice cream to choose from. I love that they also have a food trailer onsite to grab a bite to eat. Perfect place to take your kids or to treat yourself.

A traditional diner. A good place for breakfast. The service was not the best, but the food was good and hot. The coffee was also decent.

I had never visited this establishment before, and was interested to find that the diner (grill) and the ice cream parlor are two different buildings on two difference sides of the parking lot. The diner was only open for breakfast today, from 8:00 AM - noon. I really didn't want another breakfast, (I arrived at 11:45 AM), but they modified... More

We stopped here for ice cream after visiting a different local restaurant. After the great ice cream service, we'll definitely be back to try the grill! The service from the ice cream wait staff was outstanding. They 'have each other's back" when it came to taking and fulfilling our order. Teamwork at its best. The ice cream serving size it... More

And the flavors of the hard ice cream- are really difficult to find elsewhere. Never a long wait- lots of very capable staff,And plenty of outside tables... More
